The Blarney Stone is a beautifully decorated townhouse just on the outskirts of the main part of Cork City. The place was so nice that our spirits were not even dampened by the two flights of stairs to our room. The bathroom has been recently updated, and our room was moderately sized. Breakfast was excellent with a great selection on... More

This review follows a tour of Ireland where we stayed at some of the most delightful and spacious guesthouses with the most welcoming and generous hosts that we could have ever have asked for. We had really enjoyed and appreciated the warmth and friendliness of the Irish people. These guesthouses were all countryside based. The Blarney Stone was the first... More

Angela was wonderful, I made an error and cancelled my reservation somewhere else and she had a room available and matched the price I was going to pay. Very nice accommodations and the people friendly.

We spent 1 night here. The place was lovely, very friendly and an excellent breakfast, the best breakfast out of all the other places we stayed during the week. We had a deluxe room which was slightly bigger than the double but it had a very large bed and a single bed in it so it was quite full. The... More

We stayed for one night...a beautiful room.....very helful staff...very pleasant....Fortunately we arrived for breakfast before it became too busy...some people returned to their rooms to wait as it became very busy....one member of staff clearly rushed off her feet...a wasted room adjacent to the breakfast room could have accommodated more people. .. We would recommend to friends

Please consider the Blarney Stone guest house when stopping in cork. It was spotlessly clean and the ladies in charge made every effort to accommodate us, bearing in mind we were looking for a last minute bargain for a number of days. Their warm welcome and flexibility was much appreciated. The place sparkled with cleanliness and it was a short... More

A beautiful house located far enough away from the hustle of the city, yet close enough to walk anywhere, the house offered nice accommodations with a tasty breakfast. Angela offered us very helpful advice and was absolutely gracious and lovely! Thanks again Angela for a wonderful stay! (two girls from Canada)

Stayed here for 4 nights and I couldn't be happier with how I was treated. The room was great, roomier enough for me, with tea at your full disposal. The breakfast selection was wonderful. Angela couldn't be any nicer or more available. Super close to the city center. A mere 10 minute walk. If you want a peaceful and lovely... More
