I stayed here for one night in March, and I wished I had the time to stay in Cork for 2 nights. The location is pretty good as its next to a few good pubs, and maybe a 15-20 walk to Oliver Plunkett St. Olive is such a nice person, her hospitality goes above and beyond. She came out and... More

We recently visited our daughter who is studying at the University this semester in Cork and cannot say enough good things about our stay at Auburn House. We met a lot of nice people in Ireland but not sure that there any people nicer than Olive and her husband! They were very welcoming and thoughtful to us and gave great... More

From Olive meeting us outside with a smile, to her wonderful husband demanding we not carry out bags, this was a wonderful place. Walkable to everything, clean, cute rooms. You can see the time spent by Olive and Kieran thinking everything out. From the brochures and guide books about, to having tea available all day. This was our best night... More

We had a lovely stay for 2 nights at Auburn House. After initial confusion about our booking (it got lost, but luckily there was space for us and we even had a choice between 2 rooms), we settled in to a lovely double room with en-suite. The room had a comfy bed, tv, wifi, coffee and tea making facilities, huge... More

Ciaran & olive were very kind and was very accommodating with our stay. The room was basic but nice, very clean. Breakfast was tasty with tea & coffee available throughout the day. Very good location. Only qualm would of been the shower pressure was very low & uncomfortable to shower in.Olive andCiaran made our stay all that more welcoming.

This B&B was exactly what we wanted! Close walk to all the areas of town we wanted to see, convenient parking (VERY nice for those of us driving around the country,) comfortable rooms, also excellent breakfast! We were weirdly excited to have beans with our breakfast (one of our favorite parts of the traditional, sometimes left out by others.) Olive... More

Only people like Olive and Kieran should be allowed to have a B&B. They are the best hosts one can have. The location isn't great in terms of beauty (in fact, Cork isn't the most beautiful city in Ireland) but quite convinient in terms of geography: close walk to the bus station, most famous tour departure point and the city...

My husband and I are travelling from Australia to Europe again in 2014. I just logged on to Tripadvisor to check out hotels and B & Bs in Ireland as we are thinking of visiting this beautiful country again. In 2007 we stayed at Auburn House while in Cork and were absolutely delighted with the house and the hosts. We... More

As indicated in several other reviews, Auburn House B & B is characterized by the warmth of the hosts, Olive and Kieran and indeed their children Emma, Lauren and Shane! All are most welcoming, accommodating and informative. You can easily put away your guide book and depend upon any information/advice that Olive and Kieran might give you whether it's to... More

This unassuming gem of a B & B is in a perfect location in Cork City, close to city center, shopping, the best restaurants and pubs, and tourist sites. As if that weren't 't enough, the moment you check in with the proprietors Olive and Kieran, you will feel like you have found your home and your family in southwest... More
