It's lovely to travel in off season since good places like the Garnish House tend to upgrade you to a better room - and that meant a family room for just the two of us. We arrived around 5 and were invited to 'tea' in the dining room, which was so welcome after a day of bracing cold, windy, wet...

Cork was our first stop after arriving in Ireland that morning. We were jet lagged and exhausted and Garnish House was just what we needed. We had such a great night's sleep. Loved the tea and scones that we were served upon arrival. We also enjoyed our traditional Irish breakfast the next day. Highly recommend! Something I noticed about all...

I'm not a fan of B&B's usually, but I was really impressed by this one. Warm welcome and professional service from start to finish. The room was well appointed and finished to the same standard as a 3* Hotel, albeit a fraction smaller. Facilities were excellent and the room was warm and comfortable. I would certainly stay here again if...

A lovely stay! Large room, bath and shower along with a most welcome high tea on our return from a visit into Cork town. The breakfast was too die for; you most certainly won't go hungry. Very highly recommended.

I stayed at the Garnish House with my granddaughter when we flew over from the UK for a weekend. We had a wonderful welcome with so many gorgeous scones we couldn't eat them all. We had a large room and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The breakfast was scrumptious with many different varieties of food. Nothing was too much trouble and the...

I've stayed here on a few occasions, and have had an excellent experience every time. Beds are comfortable, everything is clean and well maintained, the staff are very friendly helpful and the afternoon tea is always welcome after a long journey. It's a great location for UCC and pretty handy for the city as well. Really can't fault it at...

A warm welcome awaits you, as does the tea and scones. What a great start. Very friendly staff who go out of their way to help. Our room was small, but very adequate. Treat yourself to a full Irish breakfast or the Ham omelette, you will not be disappointed. A great location 15 minutes from the main area of town...

Nicest folks ever. Very accommodating. Room at front of house but not noisy. Most amazing breakfast ever! I have never seen so many options offered and encouraged! Didn't need to eat again until mid evening! Great location across from UCC and close enough to walk into Cork City.

Stayed for one night with my son, when seeing a performance at the Everyman theatre. Staff are incredibly polite and helpful. Wonderful to have complementary tea and scones on arrival. Garnish House is actually 3 properties, we were located in the house across the road, which has a shared sitting room and communal kitchen. Bedroom was spacious (we had been...
