From the outside I was not sure, but the previous reviews were all we needed to know not to judge from the outside! John welcomed us even though we were early with our check-in. We were able to park right outside (you may not be so lucky if you arrive later) and we walked everywhere from here. Our room was... More

We actually were going to stay at another B&B, but they made a mistake and double booked, but we're kind enough to set us up with a reservation at Kent House. We let them know we would be arriving very late on a flight from Glasgow, and would be leaving very early to get a train. We arrived at around... More

We stayed at Kent House for 4 nights for a family wedding. It is a fantastic B&B, only 10 mins walk from the city centre, and 3 mins from the train station (no train noise is heard from the B&B). Had a warm welcome from the lovely hosts on arrival - the landlady Lorraine is an absolute star, she goes... More

We truly enjoyed the night we spent at Kent House. From the moment we arrived, John was incredibly helpful in helping us decide how to spend our evening. He gave us a map with local events to peruse while we settled in. When we left, John wasn't around so we just kind of snuck out the door. He must have... More

Staying at the Kent House was amazing. It close to a bunch of restaurants, pubs, and shops. We couldn't even had the train station that sits behind the house. Rooms were big and bathrooms were great. They were so helpful with everything we needed from things to in the city, where to go eat, and where to go outside the... More

This was the perfect B&B for our time in Cork. Literally steps away from the train station, it was an easy walk with our luggage. Our room was spotless, the beds comfy, and the shower had good water pressure and ample hot water. My 11 year old was thrilled with the PlayStation in the room as well. We found the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kent House-Lorraine and John were very welcoming. Breakfast was excellent and was supplemented by Lorraine's delicious home-made banana bread and rock cakes. We were given good tips about places we were visiting and given leaflets and helpful information. We would definitely recommend this B&B and hope to return in the future.
