“AN ABSOLUTE GEM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

Yet again we have had a wonderful time sharing the home and hospitality of Eucharia and Fergus.

Both they and their beautiful house are second to none.

Once you have experienced Westwood Country House, you will need look no further for somewhere to stay in the Blarney area.

We will be returning here in 2013. Why would we want to go anywhere else?

Thanks again Eucharia and Fergus.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

My new husband and I ventured down to Cork during our honeymoon a few weeks ago. This was our first stop on the journey and we were with the incredible Fergus and Eucharia Hannon for six nights.

Neither my husband or I are strangers to bed and breakfasts, and this was BY FAR the most welcoming, warming experience we have ever had with both hosts and location.

Westwood is in the heart of Blarney, and easy enough to find. The home is gorgeous, inside and out, with a beautiful view of Cork city in the distance. We were accommodated at every possible turn, whether we needed to be or not. Fergus and Eucharia truly went out of their way to do whatever they could to make our stay wonderful!

A breakfast menu was available, and we were even leant the use of their GPS for a time as we worked our way around Cork. Each morning we were able to go over a map or route with Fergus in order to get to our destination with ease!

The two of them, without even trying, made us feel like part of the family. They would light a little fire, or ask us to join them in a beverage in the evening if we were playing a game of chess, etc. We had many wonderful evenings talking to them about their family or life in general and always came away with a happy feeling!

You would be missing a gem if you drove by Westwood. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else again should I return to Cork in the near future. We were also recommended an amazing place to eat just around the corner from the B&B, called Blair's Inn. The couple was kind enough to call ahead one evening without being asked to book us a table! Not to be missed!

All in all, big, comfortable rooms to come back to each night, and happy little Jack Russells to greet you each morning!

Room Tip: All are warm and the same size, with same sized bathrooms and amenities. All have a wonderful view...

Eucharia and Fergus are excellent hosts. Every room is absolutely beautiful and the food was great.
We only stayed one night but would have like to have stayed longer.. So close to the magnificient Blarney Castle. Never realized how much time we would spend walking on the Castle grounds. We loved the Westwood and know that everyone that stays there will feel the same. Our room had very comfortable beds and the shower was great. Take my advice (I don't give out a 5 star unless it is a excellent place to stay) Book the Westwood..

Room Tip: All the rooms were great..we had three.

Many thanks to Eucharia and Fergus for such wonderful hospitality. I arrived quite late on a very wet evening for an overnight stay and was greeted with lovely homemade scones and tea. The bedroom and en-suite were spotlessly clean, warm and cosy. I had a wonderful nights sleep and would have loved to stay longer. Guests are offered huge choice for breakfast. I treated myself to the very tasty pancakes! I have already recommended this guesthouse to colleagues and friends and hope to return again in the near future!

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful!

We are really impressed about this B&B; everything is perfect; Westwood Country House is located in a very nice surrounding area near by Blarney. The rooms are very nice and the living room and the entrance hall invite you for a gentle stay in the evening. Breakfast ist very good and you will get own fresh eggs. Clair and Fergus, the owner of the B&B, took great care to us during our stay; we felt like living in a familiy.
Clair and Fergus - thanks again for the great time we were allowed to spent with you.

We found this B and B to be one of the most enjoyable ever.. The facility and services were excellent. Food - delicious. Our hosts were warm welcoming and delightful to visit with. Loved the gardens and the view! If you are a golfer {we aren't but know many who are} he can give you all the information you need and says he will help arrange a day on the links. Only a few miles from Blarney and restaurants, this is a lovely place to stay.

Getting a warm welcome with excellent ! homemade scones on arrival,Wow.Westwood Country House is an excellent located for visiting Cork and Blarney Castle, home of the famous Blarney Stone,The surrounding grounds and view are epic ,The house it self is nice and quiet.The morning breakfast around the "Olympic dining table "was just rich and delicious. We were fortunate to get a double room(Could have been slightly bigger) with an impressive huge bathroom ! The Hannon's are a charming couple. They will not rest till they are 101% sure their guests are happy .I'll be back !
