This B&B is located in a wonderful QUIET historic corner of Cork City called Shandon. This historic 100+ year old building has charm and quirks like the leaking staircase that make it special, not a cookie cutter accommodation that you get at a hotel. Breakfast was filling and delicious, what was in that coffee we will never know. Yum! To our Host we can only say Thank You Martin for having our family of 5 to stay. Your hospitality, assistance and stories were enjoyable every day. I only wish that our stay could have been longer. Our 3 boys keep asking when are we going back.
