this guesthouse was in a good location up a hill not far from Cork City and Railway which is good,the only problem would be the walk back up the hill so we got a taxi as we had young kids, so not good for older people either, also we were in the family room which is also on the 4th floor up a lot of stairs, so because of no elevators in the property, (which may be because of the age of the building) that was also a walk up four flights of stairs,one double bed was hollow on one side from years of use and i did'nt sleep to comfortable because of this as i kept falling into the hole, but apart from that the staff were very friendly and really welcomed us on arrival and anytime we passed by they were so friendly, and thats the joy of the "Irish Welcome",the kids even got brought out to see the chickens living in the garden and were allowed to collect eggs, so there's a lovely touch. The rooms were very reasonable and also clean which is the main thing, breakfast was ten euro each adult and five each child but we were told it finished at 9.30am which was a bit early so we did not avail of it, so ended up in the English Market in a beautifull cafe for a cheaper breakfast.
