“Comfortable stay, very reasonable & great location”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I stayed at this b&b in November for a research trip to UCC. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the room was very nice and clean. I have stayed at another b&b in the area and this one was much nicer/friendlier and is also more reasonably priced. Great location for UCC (right across the road from the gates) and Cork city centre is only a 10 minute walk away. Good breakfast served when you want it.The lady who owns the b&b also kindly rang me a taxi when I was leaving and let me leave my luggage at the b&b until the afternoon of the day I was checking out which was very helpful. Very safe location too if you are a single female traveller. I would definitely stay here again!

Very nice and clean b&b. The people are kind and give a lot of information!
Good breakfast and just 10 minute walk to the centre!
Behind the bbs there is the fitzgerald park and opposite the UCC.
Just few minutes walk there is the Finbarre's cathedral, and along the road to the centre you can find bars and restaurants.

The Blue Dolphin is a lovely B&B. The owner was very friendly and informative about the area and history of Cork, and the map provided was very helpful. The en-suite room was small but very clean and comfortable, it was certainly nice having a double bed in a single room. The breakfasts were excellent and we were served when requested, even on the day we had an early trip and needed breakfast an hour before the usual serving times. Good location within walking distance of both the University and the town centre. I would recommend to anyone visiting Cork.

This is a lovely B&B with very helpful proprieters. As a single woman travelling alone, I appreciate a secure environment. The house is very secure, and the staff are very helpful with maps and local knowledge. My ensuite room was very clean, bed was comfortable and the stay very affordable.

I would strongly recommend this B&B to everyone.

Room Tip: The double room (#2) is very quiet and faces the back garden).

Correspondence prior to visit showed good understanding of tourists needs. Warm welcome and immediately focussing on what we wanted. As newcomers to Cork very helpful with advice and maps - just what we needed. Comfortable room,excellent food, no waiting, served when requested. Very pleased with location enabling us to leave car and walk everywhere.Car off the road and behind a locked gate. Very reasonable price. Would certainly recommend to family and friends.
