I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely charming B&B from 13-15 November 2012. I had been a delegate at a conference at UCC, which is just across the street. It was important to me that I was in a place that was not only comfortable, but also gave me a feeling of being looked after while travelling alone. For me, its not just important that the B&B is well looked after, and maintained. It is also important that the owner is seen to be "involved" and caring about the entire experience from beginning to end, throughout. And that is just what I felt. Tony and Avril were very very good in ensuring my comfort while I was there, offering advice and suggestions when I asked for it, and really making me feel welcome, which was the most important of all. I felt they genuinely were interested in my experience, and really cared about how I got on.
The B&B itself is spot on, very clean, well presented, well appointed, quiet, etc. The extra little things made a lot of difference to me. For example, a fresh water cooler was placed outside in the hallway, so I could fill my water bottle with fresh drinking water whenever I needed it. When you are travelling it is so easy to become dehydrated with drinking tea all day long in meetings, etc. So replenishing my water needs was paramount to functioning, and overall feeling well throughout my time at the conference. The breakfast menu itself was amazing. I have not seen this before. One could almost extend their stay just to try out the next item on the menu, day after day! The food was brilliant, plentiful, hot, and exactly what I needed. The warmth and comfort of the room ensured I slept well both nights. I cannot find any faults with this B&B, only great remarks. I am quite sure I will be back with Tony and Avril again, and really looking forward to it. Couldn't recommend this B&B any higher. Now I know why it is ranked number one in Cork for B&B's. Thanks to Trip Advisor for creating this ranking system, it saved my experience because other conference delegates had horror stories about their B&B experiences and hated me for boasting everyday about how great "my place" was (but they gladly took the name and number for next year!)
