We had a lovely stay here in cork recently, the hostess was immediately warm and friendly. The location of the B&B is fantastic. The room was spacious, bright and comfortable. Helena was an amazing host and when we lost our car key, she stayed with us to help us find a solution and then drove us to meet our relatives... More

The Achill House was warm, welcoming and absolutely immaculate! My daughter is attending The University of Cork and this was a perfect location for my visit. I could meet her at the corner coffee shop for chai or lunch or she would stop in after class. We could walk to the town center, English market, restaurants or bus depot. Thanks... More

Helena was a great hostess!! The Irish breakfast was simply superb!! I am only sad that my stay was so short and that I had to travel back to my home country to work. If I ever return to Cork for pleasure, and not for business, this will be the place I stay in. I cannot recommend it enough. Helena... More

This B & B has a perfect location when one has to do busy things at the gorgeous University of Cork which is right across the street. After a busy conference all one wants is some peace and quiet and then this place is perfect, the rooms are nice and cosy, everything is clean and Helena superfriendly. It is distinctly... More

We want to highly recommend the first class experience we had at Achill House B&B, Cork. Having travelled from Australia for a one month European tour of the UK, Ireland and Spain we were extremely impressed with the personal touch provided by our host Helena. The triple room we hired was very spacious and decorated to a high specification which... More

We stayed in Achill House for two nights in August. We received a very warm welcome from the owner Helena. She was very pleasant, nothing was a bother for her and she treated us more like family than guests, which was nice. We also had the pleasure of meeting her adorable little daughter :) We stayed in a triple room... More

We enjoyed 3 very comfortable nights at Achill House. The room was spacious, very clean and also quiet at night. The room was cleaned each day with fresh tea and biscuits provided. The landlady was very friendly. The B&B was in a great location for visiting Cork Gaol and the University but was a bit of a walk into the... More

Helena is a wonderful host. She couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and leapt to the rescue after a car-hire disaster threatened to cancel our holiday before it had even started. Lovely large clean rooms, a great breakfast and the kind of open hearted welcome that money can't buy.

My niece chose this B&B to stay in as she was a student in Cork this past semester. So, I take no credit for the lovely time we had there. The owner, Helena, is a super-friendly, very helpful person and upholds the great reputation that Irish B&Bs hold. It's about relationship for her. We were there for a number of... More
