Very beautiful large and clean rooms. Although there were many large black flies on the property. The B&B common areas are gorgeous and the breakfast was pretty decent. Wish they also provided guests in GF toast.

This was the most spectacular B&B we stayed in during our recent tour of Ireland. The owners are charming and welcomed us into their home as if we were family visiting from the states. The house itself, I imagined, would be like residing in a manor home in Ireland from the turn of the century but with all the modern... More

The proprietor was wonderful with lots of stories about the area and recommendations. The B and B itself is in a charming manor home. The grounds are very nice with lots of rhododendrons in bloom. Our home on the second floor had a view out the back and side of the property plus a balcony with access to a terrace... More

A very beautiful, quiet and relaxing place. It is beautiful inside and out, and very pleasant and welcoming owners. We wished that we had booked more than one night stay. Will definitely be back another time.

We were completely thrilled with this B and B. The rooms were large with ensuite bathrooms. One of our rooms had a balcony overlooking the yard below. Every inch of this place was decorated beautifully and our 10 year old daughter referred to it as the princess B and B. The breakfast was delicious with a wide variety of food... More

This may be the nicest B & B in Ireland. We felt like royalty staying in this amazing home surrounded by the beautiful country landscape. The room was fit for a queen and king, with a canopy bed, jacuzzi tub, and expansive selection of teas, cookies and chocolate. The home is close to town and Blarney Castle, but tucked nicely...

Maranatha is a unique, lovely B&B. The proprietors, Olwen and Doug, are both engaging, wonderful people and hosts with bigger than life personalities - Doug is a car buff and Olwen a Kentucky Colonel (let her explain how)!! Every room is unique in a fantastic way. Our party had three rooms, the Top Hat room, the Rose Room and the... More

A lovely couple own this and run it perfectly! It’s actually Olwen’s childhood home that she’s fixed up and restored it to a very nice house but modern. She’s an interior decorator and so everything is done tastefully. The nice thing is that it’s up on a hill, away from the traffic, but only about 5 minutes to Blarney. Have... More

Doug & Olwen have a magnificent B&B at the top of the quiet hill. It has beautiful manicured grounds with rabbits everywhere. Very lovely, quiet, serene place to wind down with a nice glass of wine on the balcony of the Champagne room while a cool breeze blows on a bright sunny evening listening to the birds and watching the...

This is a great place to stay while traveling in Ireland. We stayed two nights and hope to return some day and stay longer. The owners, Olwen and Doug, are wonderful hosts who can give you all kinds of information about the area and Ireland in general. The home is beautiful and accommodations very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and... More
