Places like this should not be allowed to survive. Musty dirtly, pokey old house with terrible facilities. Broken shower and cigarette burns everywhere. The place really needs a facelift,it's like a bad acid trip from the 1970's. I was expecting a "Here's Johhny" for breakfast. Staff looked overworked and underpaid and the manageress/owner is an experience in itself.Was not cheap...

We stayed here for 2 nights. They have two guest houses next to each other, some rooms with baths. Our first night was a large room at the front and was affected by road noise. The staff were very pleasant and moved us to a rear room which was quiet and comfortable. Basic breakfast. Only a short walk from pubs...

Our room was upgraded to the building next door to the reception. It was very clean and proper, with a good shower. Cork is an interesting city within walking distance of Killaney Guest House. Across the road from the guest house is the University. The grounds are beautiful and was one of my favourite visits.

I stayed here the night before my graduation and I was immediately made to feel welcome. Fantastic rooms with very friendly staff. The manager was very warm and friendly and I could have talked to her all day (she even took the time to give me some career advice which was very helpful). On top of this the place is...

We were warmly welcomed at the arrival but when we saw the room, it was not fitting the pictures and description on their website. Old room, badly soundproofed, noisy bathroom with sanitary in poor conditions and expensive breakfast. Worst, when we left next day, we were really badly received by a cleaning lady and decided to leave without breakfast. I...

I stayed here for one night to be close to Cork university- in an excellent location about 5 mins away. There was parking on site which was ideal as parking is very expensive otherwise. I was also able to leave my car there the next day until I was finished. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating- lovely breakfast. I...

Very welcoming place with super helpful staff. The breakfast is great with lots of options, but most of the time it's not included in the room price, so be aware of that. The guy who served our breakfast was very friendly and chatty, it made us feel welcomed. The building is a bit old, but tge room was big and...

One of the worst experiences we've had - went to stay here for jazz weekend last year but never actually got to stay in this guest house as the owner decided to sell our room to a walk in despite us confirming we would be arriving at 8.30pm when she rang to confirm at 8pm. Place is not only run...

Room is a suite, clean. It is turned down daily. Suite includes bathroom (shower, sink, toilet). More than spacious for one person. Very convenient in that a fridge/freezer is in the room as well as a working stovetop with a stocked cabinet of pots/pans, plates/utensils. Free wi-fi, strong signal in room. Stayed over a week at 79Euro/night. The staff and...
