The owner is a lovely Irish couple that enjoy to meet new people and new culture, giving you a lot of information about Cork and Ireland and what to visit, but giving you also your privacy. The room is... More

Recently stayed here with 3 of my friends whilst visiting Cork City. Martin the owner was lovely and made us feel very welcome. He has great knowledge of the area and historical stories. Located in a great area, easy walk to the centre of town. Highly recommended.

Choose to stay in this bed and breakfast for the great view from the front... More

Stayed with Martin & Margaret and it was wonderful. It was like a home from home. We felt like we had known them all our lives. We felt so comfortable and the breakfast was amazing. We couldn't ask for anything more. Full Irish with toast or bread and the table is set out so lovely. Martin and Margaret are very... More

My adult daughter and I stayed here for 4 days in June. The hosts, Margaret and Martin, are friendly and helpful without being intrusive, and Martin makes great breakfasts! Martin knows a lot about Cork and its history, which was helpful for us. He is also an avid golfer, for those looking for information on pursuing that pastime locally. The... More
