Everything about our stay was great. Called them to make reservations and they were able to get us a wonderful double room at a great price. The place was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the hosts were charming and eager to assist us to ensure we had a great stay. The location was nice, just a short walk... More

We stayed at the Blue Dolphin for four nights while in Cork, and I have to say Francis and Sean are the two nicest people you could ever meet! The bed was very comfortable. The room can use an update, but over all I think the whole place was very charming! Breakfast was great, and they were all but happy... More

I stayed for four nights in the Blue Dolphin House B and B. The room was very comfortable with en-suite, t.v, kettle and tea/coffee facilities. It was evident the owners enjoyed the guests, knowing each persons name and checking if breakfast was suitable every morning. There is parking available to the rear of the building.

Frances was very friendly and offered a lovely place when Cork was packed solid. The rooms are tidy and clean and there is safe parking at the rear. Its an ideal location for all amenities in Cork. We also enjoyed a great breakfast and Sean offered a cheery greeting to all. Loved that place!

Clean,perfectly acceptable no-frills accomodation for the value-conscious. Friendly hosts, nice breakfasts and comfortable beds. Has wifi, though this is erratic on the upper floors. Would stay again.

I stayed at this b&b in November for a research trip to UCC. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the room was very nice and clean. I have stayed at another b&b in the area and this one was much nicer/friendlier and is also more reasonably priced. Great location for UCC (right across the road from the gates)... More

Very nice and clean b&b. The people are kind and give a lot of information! Good breakfast and just 10 minute walk to the centre! Behind the bbs there is the fitzgerald park and opposite the UCC. Just few minutes walk there is the Finbarre's cathedral, and along the road to the centre you can find bars and restaurants.
