I selected this establishment based on other travellers' reviews and I was not disappointed. My room was warm (yes, the heat was on!), roomy, comfortable and clean and the innkeepers were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Coffee and tea-making items were supplied in my room, and there was plenty of hot water for the shower. Each morning a basic, but very filling, cold and hot breakfast was prepared to my specific request. This B&B has an ideal location if you like to walk. It's near the train and bus stations, as well as Cork's Central City and major tourist attractions. The innkeepers were especially helpful in providing directions and suggestions for seeing the city and I felt very safe as I spent three days exploring the area. The area is so quiet you would never know you are just a block or two from the train station. If I ever return to Cork I'd stay there again.
