Helena the owner was lovely and friendly, stayed here last nite following a concert, room was small but clean, 165euros for a double room with no breakfast is a total ripoff! How are these places allowed to charge this kind of money, it's ridiculous

Although I had messaged and stated i would be driving in (3hr drive) and arriving after midday, there was no one in the house to receive me. I waited an hour next door as Booking.com and the bnb next door tried to ring the owner of Achills to no avail. I later was told that the check in times is... More

Within walking distance of bit centre too and easy to get there by car. Very few car parking places but the owner was very helpful... More

We traveled to Cork, very excited to be in one of the cities of our heritage. The outside of this B&B looked quaint so we decided to stay. We were invited in but then had to wait about 30 minutes to be taken to our room because the owner wasn't there. She rushed in but then had to run out... More

This was an unfortunate find on our trip to Ireland. The beds were uncomfortable and had rooms were less than basic. They had an odor that was unidentifiable for the most part. There was no breakfast which would simply make this a "bed and..." The hostess occupied the gathering are yo entertain so we were unable to gather at the... More

Stayed here for the cork Jazz. In a strange turn of events, we ended up staying here in achill house after an "overbooking" issue in our original b&b. We were instantly welcomed by Helena who provided us with a nice double room with an ensuite which was exactly what we were looking for and expecting per our original booking (which... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, and thought it was excellent. The owner was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable and the continental breakfast was good and well presented. Parking on site and easy walking distance into the city centre.

I stayed in this BnB for one night earlier this month (July 2015). The room I was given was the smallest room I have ever seen in any hotel / guest house anywhere in the world. It was dank and had a musty, old sort of smell. The pillows were hard and flat. The worst part about this BnB was... More

I have never in my life had a worse accommodation experience than in this B&B, to such an extent that I set up this account purely to let people know. After being charged €65 for a night (and then told the next morning that breakfast is a further €7 of a charge). I was awoken from my sleep at 9.00... More

I would like you to remove this review from my profile. The young man never mentioned that he had no means to pay for his accommodation when he checked in and I was kind enough to arrange accommodation for him on the understanding that he would pay the following morning. On the following morning i had to wake the man... More
