The White House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 25 Blarney B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 10, 2013

My fiance and I stayed here during our recent Ireland trip. It was my first experience with a B&B, and our second night of seven in Ireland. The establishment as well as the hosts were excellent. By far the best B&B we stayed at during our trip. We booked a package through Aer Lingus that allowed us to choose our B&B's and use vouchers at those respective establishments. We had no issue using the voucher, and Pat and Regina were such gracious, sweet hosts. Pat welcomed us and gave us a ton of information about the surrounding area, including information on shopping, food establishments and (because the next day was Easter Sunday) information on church services. The room we stayed in was lovely, clean and WARM (it has been an exceptionally cold March in Ireland this year)! We had a lovely en suite bathroom as well as free WIFI. The town/pubs and Blarney Castle is a very short 5-10 minute walk from the B&B. Also, the Irish breakfast they had available the next morning was delicious, and very plentiful. Overall, I would not only recommend this B&B as a place to stay during your Ireland trip, but hope to return here on our next visit. Thank you for such a great experience Pat and Regina!

My mom and I stayed at the White House while traveling around Ireland and it was the 4th bed and breakfast we stayed at on our trip. It was the best one we stayed at.

Location: It was a 5 minute walk to the town centre and Blarney Castle. Blarney is a small town, but it is also located a perfect distance from Cork and the White House is right near a bus station with busses to the city centre.

Rooms: We stayed in the front room and it was very clean (not musty at all as one reviewer mentioned) and we were both plenty warm as there were great blankets on the bed and the radiator was on when we arrived. The shower was great, but it did take 2-3 minutes sometimes for the water to get hot but nothing to complain about really.

Hospitality: The host, Pat and Regina are absolutley wonderful and breakfast was delicious. You can order from a selection and they make it fresh. I believe the Menu and some pictures are on the website and what you see there is very much what you get. It was very good and we were never left hungry.

Pat was more than happy to recommend things for us to do and suggest other towns and sites to see. He was full of helpful advice and suggestions!

There is wifi throughout and there is even a computer available for use if you lack a computer/phone/tablet.

Overall a wonderful stay, great value, and the best place to stay for a visit to Cork and the surrounding area.

Pat was great. We got there a little late, and he welcomed us in, gave us stacks of advice on visiting the Castle to where to take our washing. Breakfast was excellent, and made allowances for different tastes. We checked out with more advice on routes out of town and what to see where. Very hospitable and nice accommodations. We know where we'll stay next time we're in the Cork area.

Stayed here for one night in late December. There's not much I can add to an already impressive amount of positive Tripadvisor feedback on The White House.

Pat and Regina could not do enough for us. They made us feel welcome, cooked up an excellent breakfast (thanks for the poached eggs tip) and sent us in the right direction on our continuing travels.

The rooms were well furnished and warm, beds comfortable, WIFI excellent and hot water hot.

Blarney town is a five minute stroll where you'll come across some lively pubs for dinner and alcoholic beverages.

Look forward to returning one day.

We were so welcomed and so taken care of during our stay here. The rooms were good, the breakfast, super! Pat and Regina also recommended a place for supper, which was a nice walk from the White House and we enjoyed that as well.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our weeklong honeymoon in Ireland. We arrived later than expected and worried no one was home when we pulled up, but were greeted at the door with a big smile! Pat immediately made us welcome and was so helpful in making our 3 days in the area amazing! We had a wonderful menu to choose from each morning for a tasty and filling breakfast prepared by Regina. Pat became our personal weather man and travel guide, updating us each day to ensure we visited indoor attractions if poor weather was expected. The location is great and we were able to venture to Blarney Castle, Cork City, Kilarney, Kenmare and Kinsale with ease. Do not hesitate to stay with Pat and Regina, who are sure to stay in your hearts long after you've left their home.

Room Tip: A front room allows for a view of Blarney Castle out your window.

We recently stayed one night at The White House B&B and found it a great place to stay with very friendly and professional hosts. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was a delight. This B&B is located close to the Blarney town centre and a short run down the motorway to Cork. We highly recommend this B&B for anyone visiting the Cork area.
