We arrived early, so we decided to go to the Blarney Castle and then come back to the inn. We returned just after 5:pm to find our room was not ready yet. The rooms were ornately decorated but tiny, no place for luggage. Breakfast in the morning was average , no porridge:-( available. Overpriced and short staffed. The woman who... More

I stayed in the Blarney Stone guesthouse in early January as a sole occupant - the room was fabulous cozy, warm and bright. The breakfast was outstanding I have never had black and white pudding cooked as well. Really enjoyed my stay and hope to stay again in the future.

Couldn't ask for more. We as a group of four stayed for one night and enjoyed our stay I couldn't really fault it. The rooms may be a bit cramped for some people but it was only somewhere to put our heads down and the beds were so comfortable :-) We were made so welcome and the breakfast was beautiful.... More

Beautiful guesthouse, full of character & curiosities. Warm & welcoming. Spotlessly clean. Gorgeous breakfast. Plenty of variety. Cannot understand the negative reviews. Rooms/ensuite are small but beautiful. It is a Victorian house!

The Blarney Stone Guest House is the place to stay in Cork. Angela, Shirley and the rest of the staff are warm and gracious. The rooms and the rest of the facility are immaculate. The food was great. The location is an easy walk to all the Cork has to offer.

We spent two nights at this guest house in Cork last weekend and it was money well spent. The house was beautifully decorated; spotless clean and there was a lovely friendly atmosphere. The breakfast was freshly cooked to order; no microwaves in this establishment. The staff were on hand to cater for all our needs. We really enjoyed our visit... More

Extremely comfortable, well run guesthouse with a helpful and friendly owner. Single room was small but very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Breakfast room beautifully furnished with linen tablecloths, napkins - excellent full Irish breakfast and good service. Home away from home with excellent value for money - would thoroughly recommend.

Stayed here the weekend just gone and from the moment you check in you just feel at home ! The lady who runs the place is very helpful and extremely friendly and nothing is a problem. Rooms are nice and shower is powerful. Breakfast was delicious and as fresh as anything. The guesthouse itself is beautifully decorated and was lovely... More
