I don't understand what the Italian lady had to complain about. We stayed in the same room and yes it was compact -but it was bigger than the one we enjoyed in Via Condotti for €400 and only a bit smaller than the one in Venice for €1100 a night. But they were all unique and wonderful experiences. Breeda and Sean run a wonderful, friendly home away from home which we had the privilege to share. We recommend it to everyone on this basis - if you expect the Savoy, go somewhere else. If you want a really good, value for money b&b in the heart of Cork with great hosts, a warm and comfortable bed, typical Irish warmth and home hospitality, give Breeda a call or email. You won't be disappointed. We loved it and our hosts and we'll be back!
