Thank goodness we had only booked one night here. We showed up at the Crawford Guest House to check in and after ringing the doorbell for minutes, someone finally came to the door, let us in and told us to wait at reception. After twenty minutes waiting at reception, my boyfriend went looking for someone... he walked into a room,... More

I stayed there for 3 nights. Was on the first floor as I requested that. Nice decor throughout. Great breakfast but keep in mind you have to go next door to Killarney house for it. Car park at rear for guests. Cork city is a 10 minute walk or you can get a bus near to the guesthouse. No lifts... More

We've been having a marvellous time in Ireland, and just spent three nights in Cork City at the Crawford Guest House in Cork. Lovely, gracious and an excellent Irish Breakfast. Strategically located, the Crawford is but an easy 10 to 15 minute walk from the downtown. Kudos to Margaret at the front desk as she is a true wealth of... More

We booked into the Crawford due to us attending a concert at the Opera House in early May. We really just wanted somewhere to lay our heads for the night with a good shower that fell within our budget. At 55 Euros a night through Expedia, this guest house undercut most of the rivals although it meant we had to... More

The B&B is made up of a few town houses in a line, and though we stayed in the Crawford, our breakfast was served in Killarney. The B&B has a lovely large, secure car park at the back and is about 20 minutes walk from Cork city centre. The room was bright and fresh and modern and was generally a... More

Had a very plesant stay at the Crawford guesthouse. Room was very clean and spacious. Lovely staff and the very honest lady in charge even rang me soon after we had checked out to tell me I had forgotten my purse. Great place that I would highly recommend and would def stay there again. Paula

This place was hard to find due to road works and lack of street numbers. A little bit too far from town, so we had to take the car, as it was wet and we were tired. The B and B had good basic rooms, but water was only just warm enough, so I had a very quick shower. Breakfast... More

Crawford was clean, quiet, and very affordable. It's very convenient for UCC, has friendly staff and spacious rooms. The complimentary breakfast was delightful, their freshly baked bread and butter pudding was divine.
