Garnish House is actually made up of three different buildings, so you're not sure which one you might be in. We were in the green building across the street in a twin on the back side of the house. It was very quiet and comfortable. The decor is not contemporary, but the room was fine and clean. The water pressure is low, so plan accordingly. Mrs. Lucy is probably the nicest host you'll ever meet and is almost disappointed if she can't help you with something else during your stay. We were served an enormous tea service upon arrival (definitely say "yes" if asked if you want tea) and the breakfast was actually too big. After porridge and a full Irish breakfast they offered pancakes/crepes! Oh my. There is a small off-street parking lot and it is a short 10 minute walk to the center of town/English Market. It's in a row of B&Bs near the University and has a yellow sign (some people thought it was hard to find, but not really). For whatever it's worth, there are a lot of Americans who stay here because of friends/family attending the University.
