By chance I came across this lovely B & B. The bedrooms are very well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was very good, the only thing I do not like in a B&B is when thery serve butter in little foil packs, likewise the conserve. Otherwise it was A1. I have stayed there a couple of times and will do so again. I must add it is excellent value for money.

Room Tip: I have stayed in two different rooms and each was very good.

I was disappointed after staying in the Orchard. The morning we were leaving there was no cooked breakfast available just tea toast and cereals, since the owners were away. As we were attending a wedding we wanted a good breakfast. The lack of a cooked breakfast was not reflected in the price and we still had to pay full rate, on top of the added expense of buying a cooked breakfast elsewhere. Otherwise the house and the room was clean and tidy. But strangely the TV in the bedroom had no Irish TV channels.

We were attending a wedding in hotel next door and stayed in the orchard. It is good value at 60e for a double room , the breakfast was top class , and there was also a large selection of cereals and yoghurts.
The only negative I found was the room was cold enough and the walls seem pretty thin as we were woken at 6am by the sounds of breakfast been prepared downstairs.
All in all though it was a nice stay and they hosts were very friendly.

We stayed at The Orchard for 2 nights in August, during a family holiday in Southern Ireland. This B&B was definitely the best place we stayed!

The house is situated in an old orchard, with a lovely garden. Guests have a separate living room with a view over the garden and a kitchen for their use.

The bedrooms are very comfortable, with a good sized en suite bathroom.

The breakfast was hearty and the hosts were always warm and friendly. Make this your B&B choice in Ballincollig!

Nice little B&B with rooms in very good condition, free Wi-Fi and nice View. Bathroom was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was delicious - just the room itself could be a bit more spacious. We need to admit as well, that it is a bit tricky finding it as the sign is a little irritating!

This B&B was excellent in most ways. The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was great and set us up for the day. It is a bit hard to find and the driveway is a bit steep. It is not far from Cork and not far from Blarney so fairly central without being right in Cork.
