“Lovely place, lovely people”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Had a terrible time getting from Cork city to the b&b, taxi man brought us all around the world for what actually turned out to be a straight forward trip.

Rang the owners David and Mary for directions and he told us to get out of the taxi and came to collect us, absolute gent!!!

Greeted by Mary who couldn't be more friendly!!!

Rooms were lovely and clean and had a monster of a breakfast the next morning.

Couldn't recommend this place more.

I will be back, if just to say hi and have a cup of tea :)

Great b&b very close to the Castlemartyr resort, mary the owner is a lovely lady, extremely friendly, we stayed for a few days on business, the rooms are very clean and the house is spacious and the gardens very well kept.
mary done everything she could for us, even doing bit of washing as we had been travelling for some time, her husband david even gave us a lift into cork so we could have a drink.

Would thoroughly recommend this B&B

Thanks Mary & David

I need to travel and stay in Shangarry, but the week end of the festival is fully booked all over the vicinity. I call sundown and Mary was so kind and help in any detail. She even offer a really convenient transportation from her place to Ballymaloe festival, She is really kind.

We recently spent 4 days staying at his B&B whilst attending a wedding nearby. The welcome from Mary and David, the owners, was outstanding in a country noted for its warm welcomes. The room was large and spotlessly clean. We were able to dress for the wedding in spacious comfort. Mary was always there to provide advice on where to go, restaurants, local services etc. and there was always an invitation to enjoy a pot of tea and a chat. The breakfasts were excellent and we will definitely return when visiting Ireland in the future.

If you are looking for a typical friendly Irish B & B then look no further than Sundown House. Never before, and I have stayed all over the world, have I been treated so well as I was here.Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was huge and really nice. There was nothing I could say bad about the place. Idealy situated for touring in that part of Ireland. I will certainly go again. I was at a wedding and there was no problem with coming or going to get changed, no time limits at all, you were free to come and go as you please.

Room Tip: Just give Mary a ring and book. All rooms looked good. Mine a single room was really good and a good...

My daughter and I stayed at Sundown House for two nights, while we visited Cork, Cobh, Midleton and Ballimaloe Cookery School. The home is located just 200 yards off N25 , just east of Midleton but on a quiet, country lane. Mary and David are experienced hosts who welcome all to their home. David is a classic Irishman with the gift of gab and loves to share with guests. Mary loves to garden and has lovely plantings. Guest rooms are on the ground floor and spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was quite good and generous quantities. This is a perfect B and B for couples, families and those visiting Cork area without staying in the big city.
