I recently stayed at Mariaville house and immediately felt at home after a long flight From Chicago, O'hare. Barry and Goretti are the best hosts, knowing when to be helpful And when to give you privacy. I spent 2 nights at Mariaville house at the beginning and the End of my trip. It was such a relief to know my... More

I stayed at this B&B recently with 2 friends. Mariaville House is in easy walking distance of Cork. As would be the case I imagine with other city properties, what you gain in convenience you do sacrifice for in space. Looking back, we probably should have booked 2 separate rooms rather than a triple. My friends had a little space.... More

The innkeeper was very helpful, suggesting a casual and great dinner location. Wonderful pizza and wine bar. Loved that part. However difficult to get to without GPS. It took us Americans about an hour to find it, after several wrong turns and two stops to ask for directions. Fortunately the friendly Irish were very helpful. Our room was clean, but... More

I spent 2 weeks with 3 of my friends in Mariaville B&B. It was a great stay with tasty brekfast, nice rooms with very comfortable beds. There are also coffee and tea facilities and a fridge in the dining room which you can use whenever you want to. About 20 minute walk to the city center. Barry and Goretti are... More

My son and I took a tour around Ireland and spent several day/nights in Cork. The Mariaville House was a great location! Walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Our hosts, Goretti and Barry, were very helpful with other parts of our trip and had a lot of fun talking with them!! Super breakfast - I'd go back anytime... More

My husband and I recently took a city break to Cork, what a great weekend, we were looking for a centrally located B&B that we could walk to town, park the car & not have to pay city rates for parking !! This B&B is perfect..... We had a fantastic experience, Barry was more than accommodating when it came to... More

Booked this b&b for our last night in Ireland as it is only 15 mins from airport. Barry was very nice and the breakfast was lovely, but the room was disappointing, very basic, no tea and coffee facilities in the room. The bathroom was in need of a refit, the shower was not very clean and the towels were hard,... More

Just to deal with the matters raised for those who are interested. We have made a decision to take the teas and coffeee making facilities out of the bedroom and place these in our breakfast room for our guests. The reason that we have done this is that we can now provided our guests with fresh milk from a fridge... More

What a lovely family! We enjoyed a home cooked meal every morning which included a traditional Irish Breakfast with black and white pudding. I do not eat meat, so my eggs were served with fresh tomatoes and chives fresh from the garden! My daughter and I chatted with Barry about interesting places to visit and how to get about town....

The location is convenient to downtown Cork, a 5 minute drive or a 22 minute walk. Space was rather tight in the bedroom where we stayed and it was a challenge finding a place to use our laptops. The beds were good quality and comfortable. The bathroom was small but adequate and acceptably clean. The liquid soap dispenser in the... More

We have read this review with some interest and have taken note of the various points raised.We have rooms of various sizes but all meet the required standards. We must keep an eye on the soap dispensers. We note the comments with respect to the towels and agree that with our current damp summer that our eco friendly policy may... More
