“Great B&B on Cork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

Barry, Goretti, and Molly were a pleasure to meet and get to know. We had a wonderful time at their B&B. Barry and Goretti helped us book our next 2 nights in other cities and told us a great restaurant to go to that we really enjoyed. The breakfast was amazing and fun to share with 2 other families that frequently stay at their location. It was a wonderful experience.

My friend and I stayed at Maria Ville House over St. Patrick's weekend, and we had a great time. Barry and his family were very friendly, and Barry was especially helpful with giving advice on what sites to see and the best ways to do so. He even ran out in the rain to let us know that we were heading in the wrong direction. The breakfast provided by Barry and his family was absolutely delicious. This is the exact Irish hospitality that I expected!

Had a wonderful stay here in September 2011. Barry and Goretti were very helpful and made us very much at home. It is a great place to stay and I would heartily recommend Maria Ville House to anyone looking to stay in Cork.

My Mum and I stayed here in August and were nothing but impressed with the facilities and the very warm welcome by Barry and his family. We arrived earlier than expected from the airport, but this was not a problem, we were able to leave our bags and check in anyway! The city is an easy 15-20 minute stroll away and it is in a nice quiet street. Barry was more than happy to spend time chatting with us and explaining the local area and the best things to see. The breakfast offered was great and we left Mariaville House feeling part of the family!

Not the easiest to find, but all is forgotten once you get there. Barry knows Cork by heart and can direct you to many interesting places and sights to see. Getting to Cork centre takes approx. 15 minutes on foot, but you can take the route through the university campus. They know how to enjoy life and inspire you to do the same.

This had been a great stay for us and looking forward to staying there again next year. The B & B is ideally located as it is only a 15 minute walk to the city center. The Guilfoyle family were extremely helpful in assisting us in our tour of Cork City.
The Irish Breakfast was sumptuous! I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

After getting lost a few times trying to navigate the Cork area, we finally located Maria Ville House. Barry and Goretti were wonderful. The room downstairs was perfect to we didn't have to lug our luggage upstairs. it was clean and comfortable. Barry made us a wonderful breakfast in the morning and after a great night's sleep we were on our way.

Just what we needed and long recommendations for where to eat that evening and how to get on our way the next morning. Parking right in front was great too.
