We had a great stay thanks to Lorraine making us feel right at home straight away. The room was lovely and clean with everything you could possibly need. Excellent breakfast including home made oatcakes and banana bread ! The location and price was perfect for us visiting Cork for the Jazz Festival weekend. We will be back ! Thanks Lorraine...

This B&B is right off of the train tracks, which was fantastic since we arrived by rail. Typically lodgings right around train tracks are fairly seedy, but thankfully that wasn't the case here. We were greeted with hospitality that did not end at the door. We were given loads of maps and given excellent advice for day trips and places...

My girlfriend and I stayed for a night. The hosts welcomed us and made us feel right at home. A safe is available if you're scared about belongings like passports. Room was very clean. City centre is a 10 minute walk. Breakfast was delicious! We highly recommend them.

Make sure you follow instructions closely when driving through the narrow streets! We were greeted very nicely upon arrival and provided with a recommendation for dinner based on our cravings. Spacious and clean rooms (it is very close to a train station, but it didn't disturb my sleep). I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderfully comfortable accommodation. Fabulous hosts who went out of their way to provide brilliant tourist advice (including the nearest off licence open on a Sunday night!) and as for the vegetarian breakfast - paradise!! The bedroom was quirky in a great way - loved the amusing pictures on the walls. Ideal location we would definitely recommend it.

This B&B is quiet, friendly, and pretty conveniently located. You will need to park on the street if you are in a car, which is a minor inconvenience, but do-able. The owner gave us recommendations on where to go for live music, and the easiest ways to get around town. Comfortable beds, spacious bathroom. Clean. Would stay here again.
