We stayed in The Blarney Stone for 2 nights this week. It was recommended to us by my partner's doctor as he was having a procedure in the Bons Secours close by. What a gem of a B&B! We were given Room 4 which was comfortable, spotless and quiet. The en-suite bathroom was lovely with the best shower ever. Angela... More

My son and I stayed here for 2 nights whilst on a visit for a concert at Live at the Marquee. We were given a warm welcome and showed to our really lovely room. It wasn't huge but didn't need to be. We were about 10/15mins walk into Cork city centre. The house is next to the road but doesn't... More

I booked this B&B almost two months ago, but we must have been given the worst room, judging by the other favourable reviews. Both the bedroom and the ensuite were tiny and the window looked out on the wall next door. The wall between our room and next door was paper thin, I could hear that occupant coughing and snoring....

We arrived at the Blarney Stone without advanced booking. Couldn't have chosen a better place for our one night in Cork. it is close enough to the main attractions and immaculately well kept. Not only is the property itself cozy and clean - the service was great. Breakfast was probably the best I had on our whole trip. I would... More

Recently my daughter and I stayed at the Blarney Stone Guesthouse in Cork and absolutely loved it. We traveled around Ireland and stayed at various hotels and B&Bs - this was by far the best! From the very friendly owner, Angela, to the great staff, we felt so welcomed. The room and bathroom were immaculate and tastefully decorated. We were... More

Having been stood up at another establishment, we arrived "off the street", and were immediately impressed, with both the property and the friendliness of the greeting. Rooms while being a little small (I admit to being a larger person) but "lovely" (to quote SWMBO). Located a 15 minute walk to restaurants and pubs. Breakfast was excellent (the girls commented on...

Stayed here for 3 nights as my mum was in hospital in the Bons. This guesthouse is much bigger inside than u first believe from outside. As I was on a day to day basis I got to stay in a single room, a triple room and saw a double room. All are fabulous. Beds really comfortable and well furnished.... More

We loved the Blarney Stone Guesthouse in Cork, Ireland. This guesthouse was restored by the owner Angela and so beautifully decorated with her antiques and crystal chandeliers. It is located in a perfect location for traveling outside of Cork. Angela was so welcoming and warm to the four of us and made sure we were happy. Bedrooms are absolutely gorgeous... More

After driving for quite some time, I was delighted by the beautiful exterior, the warm, friendly greeting and the lovely interior, of the Blarney Stone Guesthouse. My bedroom was exquisite and very comfortable. The breakfast was perfectly delicious and the dining room was beautiful. All of the lovely furnishings made other B&Bs pale by comparison. No detail was overlooked. The... More

I enjoyed a lovely stay here for one night. The rooms were spotless and warm and the bedding was ample and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast is a work of art, cooked to perfection and there's just enough to satisfy. The proprietors are warm, friendly and very helpful. The B&B is perfectly situated for visiting UCC, the gates of... More
