We had a very comfortable stay at Shandon Bells. It's a quaint little BnB that's only a 15 minute walk from the Cork city centre. Valentina was a lovely host. The bathroom was stocked with useful supplies and we had a great breakfast. Only issue we had was with the parking - it's got a very small car park that's hard to maneuver out of, and it's right next to a set of traffic lights which also made the BnB awkward to exit. But the actual service was great. Thank you 😊
Booked a night's stay with Shandon Bells my girlfriend booked it and when I got there was treated very badly by the hostess asking me am I bringing bottles up and why and basically just accusing me, as my girlfriend bought a few bottles up to the room as it was our birthdays. She was quite rude to us at breakfast also making negative comments and when we left as well I think it was very unfair and uncalled for and won't be staying again or recommending it for anyone. Very disappointed I have to say as we hadn't caused trouble or made mess we cleaned up after us also. Recent guest.
Beautifully clean, very helpful host,only a short walk from the centre and a surprising quiet location.Highly recommend that you stay here.The breakfast was great value but I recommend you pay AT the hotel as Booking.com charge you more to add it.
Stayed for 2 nights in Cork in a twin room at top of house (room 4). The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and the beds comfortable. The car park at this venue is not large enough and if you do not manage to get your car parked, there is no available parking nearby. There was a strong smell of stagnant water coming from the very small shower room. Our biggest problem was that whenever another guest took a shower we had to endure a very loud pipe banging noise coming up through our radiator pipes. It was like a road drill going off. We were woken at 1am and then again at 6 am on our first nights stay. We turned the radiator valve off and this diminished the banging noise but it meant that we had no heating. So because of these issues I would not return to this Guest House again.…
We stayed in this guest house for 2 nights. The hostess was so kind and willing to bend over backwards to help us. The location is amazing - across the street from the University and a beautiful park and a 15 minute walk downtown. The house is old and a bit wonky but charming. The rooms are older but clean. The bed was comfortable. The dining room was lovely with a variety of food and a beautiful view of the water. I would ask for a room with a view of the water. We were very comfortable and would stay here again.
