The hosts were very friendly. The Wifi worked great and was the best we'd seen in Ireland so far. The location couldn't be better (a walk up this hill is not bad after a few pints). The room, shower and bed were all great. The breakfast was fantastic.

This B&B is in a very central location, just a minutes walk from McCurtain St. Room we had was very clean & spacious. Breakfast was beautiful. Although we had affront room, the noise from the street was minimal and was not a problem. No private parking .

This B+B was in a perfect location, as it's right on St Patrick's Hill- you can walk down to the city in just a couple of minutes, or if you walk up the hill you get some fantastic views over Cork. There are some great little pubs nearby with live music also. We had a room right at the top,... More

If I was going to pick three faults with this place it would be that there was no fridge in the room, no elevator and no soap provided but that is the only negative things I could say and we were well aware of the no fridge and elevator through previous reviews. Staff were really friendly, it was walking distance... More

The location is brilliant, I stayed there on my own and the room was a lovely size. Tea and coffee making facilities and a small TV. Bed was comfy. En suite very clean. My breakfast was lovely and service great, will definitely stay again.

The owner was very friendly and accommodating. He let us leave our backpacks there before we checked in so we could explore the city. The room was spacious and beautiful! Also, the location was great! We could walk to shopping, bars, and restaurants each night. Negatives: They don't allow "take-out" in the rooms, so we ended up eating on the... More

I had A very modest room in this well kept B&B. The B&B is well located to the centre of Cork. There are numerous sights and nightlife within walking distance. My room overlooked St. Patrick's Hill Street and although there was considerable chatter from the college across the street, it quieted down by bedtime. The bed was very comfortable and... More

Just had a lovely stay here for two nights during the week. Had a room on the second floor, lovely big, clean bed, nice size bathroom, tea and coffee in the room. WiFi was strong in the room. There was a small tv with a good choice of cable channels. I opted out of the breakfast. The only "issue" I... More
