“Worst Bed and Breakfast We Stayed In”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

When we took a trip to Ireland this was by far the worst place we stayed in. It was quite a far walk from town and was pretty run down. The beds were pretty uncomfortable and sunken in. Our shower broke, but luckily my brother let me use his in his room and we were not offered any compensation for the shower being broken. When we went down for breakfast there wasn't anywhere to sit. They had dirty tables an NO COFFEE and breakfast was mediocre at best. Parking is terrible. We almost couldn't get the car out because there is a lack of spots to park in.

Stayed at the Redclyffe whilst attending an open day at UCC. Great location with good parking facilities, which there are few off within this area. Close to city centre, with bus stop directy outside the B&B, though its only 10 to 15 min walk to city centre. Stayed in a double room, which was quite spacious with plenty of drawers for clothes etc.. tea making facilities. The room and ensuite where very clean, with fresh towels laid out in the ensuite. Owner was very friendly. There was a good choice of breakfast, which was very nice. Overall, very positive experience and would definitely stay again.

I have stayed this B&B twice in the last 6 months. On both occasions I was attending student open Days at UCC. The location was perfect for me because it is right across the road from the campus and a very short distance from Cork City.

On my first visit I found both owners to be very friendly, welcoming and very helpful. My room was very spacious, clean and very comfortable. I was given a special rate on my second visit due to the fact that I had previously stayed there. This was totally unexpected and very nice of the owners. The service was excellent and very professional on both occasions. They also offer very nice breakfast.

I would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone travelling to cork. I will most certainly be back.

The lady at the reception desk was very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a room at the very top which had that fresh clean smell and bathroom was very clean too. Our bed was comfortable and we had an extra single bed in our room ( even though we didn't request it ). The location is great! UCC college is just across the road and city center is 10-15minutes away if walking. If you don't feel like walking you can get a bus to city center. The only thing we didn't like is that the shower wasn't warm enough and the breakfast wasn't " Full Irish" but other than that it was lovely!

I have stayed here many times for both work and pleasure. Mick and his team are always great and extremely helpful, I have no problem going back to stay here again! Its location is great if you are visiting UCC as its just across the road, and if you want to go shopping the main area is only a 10 min walk from the shops and pubs/restaurants!

Stayed there for a few nights. Good location just outside the city centre about a 15 minute walk to town. Great breakfast but found the bed in our room was very uncomfortable. Otherwise everything was great
