Second time staying in room 7 and yet another great stay, this time for 6 nights. Great breakfast, great location for UCC and Mardyke, very handy free parking and only a short stroll into the city. Great night's sleep, lovely pillows, extra blankets provided and powerful shower. No faults.

Stayed in room number two which was clean but it's located directly above the kitchen - hum of the kitchen fan! I was also unable to close the large bathroom window which is accessible from the flat kitchen roof, the owner apparently did not know it was broken but instantly knew how to fix it - by using a piece...

Anam Cara had a eat location, close to the University and walking distance to Cork City centre. It also had good facilities onsite and the bedroom was perfectly satisfactory. The price was reasonable given all the positives.

The cafe has a lovely menu and I ate there two evenings during my stay as well as having breakfast there each morning. The food was very fresh... More

Was paying short visit to relatives in Cork and wanted somewhere convenient for city centre as I needed to catch airport bus next day. Owners of B&B, Aideen and Tim, were friendly and welcoming and provided clear directions on how to get to bus station (about 20 minutes' walk). Room was comfortable without being luxurious but ticked right boxes as... More

Aideen and Tim could not have been kinder, and the room for three though cosy was clean and fine. We were running late for a family party and struggled to find a taxi, and Tim took us there himself - he literally did go the extra mile! Breakfast in the attached cafe, Serendipity, was delicious and the service great. Thoroughly... More

You cannot get better in Cork City, its perfect every time. The friendly welcome and the help you get from the owner and all the staff is Great. I wish every establishment was as good and as clean + the breakfast is substantial and a good wide choice

The owners were very helpful and friendly. Included in the price is a great hot breakfast at their own restaurant on site, the food was awesome. The location was perfect close to pubs, and shopping and restaurants. Rooms were nice and clean! Only down fault is no elevators.
