The room was clean but small. We could barely open our suitcases. We were on the backside. It was very quiet. The breakfast was good. There are a lot of stairs. It is across from the train station. A short was to the city centre.

We recently stayed here as we were attending a concert in the marquee. It is right across from the train station and just a ten minute stroll from the town. We were allocated a room on the top floor which was spacious clean and comfortable. Although the hotel was fully booked we didn't hear a peep from anyone all night.... More

Handlebars is owned by Liam Cronin and he is a nice person and treated me well that day when I met and asked if he has any available & quiet room. He sensed that I had stayed in a noisy place previous nite coz he... More

Its a little walk from City Centre, but not too far, but my daughter and I were a little uneasy, especially at night. It was pretty plain but clean. The breakfast was about the same as a hostel, if you don't want the cooked breakfast. The cooked breakfast was not that great, either, and it was over early. Overall, the... More

The outside of this place is very deceiving to the quality of the interior. Although the "lobby" has its charm. The rooms are dated with hollow panel doors and dark and dreary hallways. This place seems to be a favourite with stags and hens, so on arrival the main conversation is of deposits. €25 per person( I had to pay... More

We had pre-booked a B&B in Cork that we requested first floor, but when we arrived, we found that it had no first floor accommodations. So we cancelled. I looked around the area and lo-and-behold nearby we found Handlebars B&B which had first floor very comfortable accommodations What a break! The hostess was very cordial and immediately offered us cups... More

Overall ok, bedsheets, pillows, toilets very clean, carpeted floor wasn't, very much dust on. No hooks in toilet so can't hang your clothes while going for shower. Only 1 spare wall socket in room, not good if you're with family. center location, excellent but too noisey as its beside bus/railway station. Service good. Value for money.
