We only stayed one night but after a week of various B&Bs around Ireland, Travellers Joy was the best. Made even better thanks to Gertie - a lovely lady who makes you feel so welcome it's a joy to stay. We were there only minutes before we were offered a coffee and snack. Gertie's recommendation for dinner, turned out to... More

Over 25 years of visiting Ireland I've stayed in over 40 B&Bs. when in Cork I stay only with Gertie and Sean, because they have remained the best of all I have tried. Many others are quite good, but none give such a feeling of being at home.

If you are visiting Blarney, this is the place to stay. First, the B&B is beautiful. It is surrounded by some award winning gardens. Second, the owner Gertie is a wonderful person who was interested in our trip and helping make the best out of the remainder of it. Moreover, the breakfast was fantastic. I would definitely stay here again!

This B&B is exactly the type of place you hope to find when booking a B&B. The rooms are so comfortable and cozy and the bathrooms have everything you could need. The whole place is spotlessly clean. Our room looked out over beautiful gardens which included an adorable little leprechaun house. The gardens were so serene and beautiful that we... More

We spent three nights in the Traveller's Joy in July 2014 and used it as a base to explore the Cork area. It was great. Nice and quiet with a lovely garden. The breakfasts were really nicely done with fresh fruit salad / fried breakfast / toast / brown bread. Gertie was very helpful in helping us plan our stay... More

This was our next to last stop on our journey through Ireland, and Gertie and her husband made it worth it. They greeted us with warmth and humor. We got hopelessly lost. We called them and the husband (darned if we can remember his name) told us he come out in his car to try to rescue us. Due to... More

I had a great time at the Travellers Joy B&B. Gertie was so very hospitable, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious! It was very close to a nice pub and just minutes bus ride from the BIarney Castle. I'd go back in a second!

Had a brilliant stay at Travellers B&B. Although it was a late booking and we arrived slightly late Gertie made us feel right at home offering us tea and home baked goods as soon as we walked in the door. The gorgeous garden and homely rooms paired with the short walk into town for dinner made our stay easy and... More

We came upon Traveler's Joy as a random find in the area, and we were so pleasantly surprised with what we stumbled upon. Instantly Gertie made us feel welcome, offering us coffee and good conversation in the evening just as we arrived. The room we stayed in was the most spacious of our entire trip (en suite bathroom you can... More

Came across Travellers joy on the internet by chance. We are so glad we found it! A beautiful home,wonderful gardens, lovely comfortable rooms, quiet, our hosts Gertie and Sean were very warm and welcoming. Always available for advice and a chat, but never intrusive. Breakfast (having stayed in many hotels/b&b's worldwide) was one of the best we have ever had!... More
