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 shower had shampoo but no soap was supplied. The towels were changed every second day, but the weather was so humid while we were there that the towels did not dry at all and we ended up using damp towels half the time. The homemade breakfasts were quite good. To park just about anywhere in Cork you need to buy and display "parking discs," which you can get only in certain convenience stores. To park on the street in front of the B & B we also needed parking discs and there was a maximum time limit -- could not park overnight in front of the B & B. So, all the cars of the guests had to be shoe-horned into the very small courtyard in front of the B & B. The result was that some of the cars in the courtyard are blocked by others and you have to contact the host so he can move the other cars -- a big inconvenience for everyone. The host is good natured about this, but it is definitely an inconvenience.
