The poor service & inhospitable manner of the owner of this B&B was the only negative on an otherwise pleasant weekend in Cork. I would not stay here & would strongly recommend other to do likewise. I would strongly recommend the Killarney B&B next door as the lady owner values custom & was extremely helpful.

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.

The Blue Dolphin is a lovely B&B. The owner was very friendly and informative about the area and history of Cork, and the map provided was very helpful. The en-suite room was small but very clean and comfortable, it was certainly nice having a double bed in a single room. The breakfasts were excellent and we were served when requested,... More

This is a lovely B&B with very helpful proprieters. As a single woman travelling alone, I appreciate a secure environment. The house is very secure, and the staff are very helpful with maps and local knowledge. My ensuite room was very clean, bed was comfortable and the stay very affordable. I would strongly recommend this B&B to everyone.
