Awesome irish breakfast, but could wish for something else then flakes for the vegetarians. Marian was an adorable host <3 A million thanks/Two girls... More

Never having been to Ireland before my husband & I stayed here for 3 nights & loved it. It's very clean & comfortable. The breakfast is delicious & Brendan & Catherine are wonderful hosts. It's a very short walk to downtown & the sights. I recommend the Marian Guest House as a great place to stay.

This bed and breadfast has a good location, at 15 minutes walking to the city centre. This is the best thing that I can say about this B&B. This place need to be remodeled, our room was inclining! and not a little, you could feel the inclination from the bed when you tried to sleep with a pillow of 2... More

b & b is a very modest but clean. The room was clean but it is really very old and worn and cheap. My big problem was the bathroom. I knew that is outside the room but I did not expect to be so mica.Si there was one thing that seemed odd to me: it was electric shower. Breakfast good,... More

Since this was our first visit to Ireland, we really had no idea of the layout of the city or country, so I was very careful in selecting our first two night's lodging. I did not want a fancy hotel, yet I did not want to stay in a hostel. Turns out I made a great decision when I decided... More

We stayed for only two days but our stay was very enjoyable. Room was nice: clean, and cosy. Host was very friendly and helpful. Full Irish breakfast in the morning was very nice. Great location: just a few minutes walk from O'Connell street and various other destinations. Highly recommended

Just leaving for Cork. A wonderful stay. The proprietors are helpful and nice to chat with. Room was quite comfortable. Connell Street and Parnell are just a few blocks away. It's easy to spot - the entryway garden is a riot of color an gnomes.
