Eleanor is an excellent host and provides guests with a quality and traditional Irish welcome and is full of life and character! The rooms are clean and well provided and there is free...

My wife and I stayed at Briaville B&B for a week while visiting Ireland from America. For the life of me, I can't understand why one of the reviewers was so disgruntled.

I wish travellers paid more attention to BAD ratings thrown in between GOOD ones. I made this same mistake a few weeks ago when I booked 9 nights in Briarville B&B, even though I had read some bad reviews on this accommodation and its owner. This trip to Cork was purely leisure; I was meeting up with relatives. I'm not...

Stayed here one night. Eleanor was very nice! Clean rooms, good breakfast (with plenty of choice). It is not in the city center, but with a car it is 5min. And there is also a bus. Overall I think good value for money. Would stay there again.
