We concur with all of the excellent reviews of Sunmount B&B! We loved staying there and found Jane and Paddy to be charming hosts who made every effort to see that we were comfortable. It is a steep hike up the hill to their house from the city center, but worth it! Breakfasts were delicious and filling! Jane's garden is... More

I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone going to Cork. Paddy and Jane were so welcoming, giving us directions, ensuring we were comfortable and serving us a very nice breakfast with home made wheaten bread! The rooms were clean, the beds were very comfortable and it is only 10 minutes walk to the very centre of Cork. But it... More

Sunmount is a cosy place in quiet surroundings up on a hill, approximately 10 minutes walk from the main bus station. A colourful little front garden, lovingly tended by Jane welcomes the visitor. The rooms are kind of old fashiond which adds to the warm and homely feeling. Jane and Paddy who run the B & B are the kindest... More

Paddy and Jane are truly great. I have stayed at several more places in Cork in last 3 weeks and this B&B was my favourite. The place is quiet, the house nice and clean and Paddy makes a perfect breakfast. Highly recommended!

It was my second time at Sunmount and I'll surely come back again. It's the best B&B where I ever been in Ireland. Jane and Paddy are so kind, welcome and helpful. It's a pleasure to talk with them and they have always time for a chat! The B&B is very clean, comfortable, lovely and typically Irish. Is not far... More

Lovely high-ceilinged Georgian house with fine views of Cork, run by a couple who genuinely seem to enjoy hosting people. Breakfast was perfect, beds were comfortable (I'm 6' 3") and the place generally was tasteful yet relaxed. Trying to think of a negative for the sake of balance but nothing suggests itself. Would definitely return.

The B&B is in a great location, being only 10 minutes away from the city center (walking distance). The hosts are truly amazing people, they give very good advices, and they are available and willing to help in any way they can (plus they are very funny and they love to chat). The rooms are very clean and the breakfast... More

We were made to feel very welcome from the very beginning of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for Paddy and Jane. The room was clean and had plenty of room. A great addition was an armchair in the room that we hadnt found in other B&B's. This allowed for the read of a good book on the odd... More

Having never stayed in a B&B before I didn't know what to expect. However I'm pleased to say that I was made to feel extremely welcome by the hosts. The B&B is in a great location near Cork City Centre which is easily within walking distance. The room was of a good size and the bed extremely comfy! The breakfast... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small quiet family run B&B set on a hill with nice views and a pretty garden, but only a 10-minute walk to the city centre, bus and train stations. The terraced house is approximately 160 years old and is furnished with some interesting antique items and paintings. Breakfast is standard full Irish, with homemade brown bread, jams & marmalade. The guests all sit around a table where they can socialise and swap holiday gossip. ... more   less
