The good thing about the guesthouse is that it is only a 10 minute walk from city center. It is clean and the staff is very accommodating. However, the wifi didn't work well at all. Plus the walls are so thin I could hear the guy downstairs farting, but luckily they moved me to another room. Yet the mattress in... More

We booked the stay at this guesthouse in JANUARY 2013 for our trip in AUGUST 2014. 3rd August 2014, to be precise. Imagine our face when, at our arrival, they didn't know who we were (they thought we had booked early in the morning). Room wasn't ready, we went for a stroll and when we came back they had a...

We enjoyed our stay at the Killarney Guest House. Margaret and Anne Marie greeted us and cheerfully checked us in. When they found out we would be joined by my daughter who was finishing up at UCC on the second night, they gave us a small apartment which was nicer ( according to Margaret ) and fit us just right....

My stay at Killarney house was absolutely perfect, the very warm welcome, the service from all staff and the lady of the house, was second to none, I stayed in an apartment over looking a beautiful park to the front and at the rear of the apartment over looking a cricket pitch, and the night lights from the houses and...

We've Stayed here Twice now and this Small(ish) and very Friendly Guest House is in a Fantastic Location only a 10min walk from the Centre of Cork. Rooms are Clean and Comfortable and the Staff are Extremely Friendly and Helpful. If you want a Central Location and Good Value For Money then this is the Hotel for You.

We arrived at Killarney guest house a month earlier than booked, because I had made a mistake in the booking (I entered August instead of July...). Hotel was full, but the staff was so kind to phone several other B&B's in the neighbourhood, and found us another place to stay for the first night, without charges for telephone costs. The... More

My friend and stayed for one night over a weekend. Booked it as I knew from my time in Cork, that it was an ideal base to the city centre. It's only a short 10-15 min to the main shopping area. We were given a double bedroom apartment which is located close to the b&b. It was a lovely surprise... More

I am seriously wondering if my husband and I stayed in the same facility that is being reviewed so positively on here. We will NEVER go back to the Guest House and would NEVER recommend it to anyone traveling to Cork City. We stopped here for 2 nights in the middle of our honeymoon tour of Ireland and I immediately... More

Expensive, breakfast cost extra, poor WiFi and slow payment checkout. Also, jacuzzi wasn't working. For the high price, you would expect that it would work. I would find a cheaper place which offers better value instead of staying here again.
