It was difficult to believe this B&B was open for business. No B&B signage made the place very difficult to find. Noone was there to let us in when we arrived (another guest had to get out of bed to unlock the door for us). Our room was unclean and looked as though it was mid-rennovation.

Blackrock Castle and a pedestrian trail along the River Lee are within walking distance, and supper at the Castle Café is scrumptious and reasonably priced.... More

I was surprised to note that this wonderful bed and breakfast house didn't have a review on Tripadvisor. Having spent 3 lovely nights here in August with my husband, I thought that this was an injustice, hence this review. Liam and Regina, the owners, made us feel like part of the family and Liam, especially, was very helpful with the... More
