I can't imagine someone could ask for more: Irish breakfast, omelettes, pancakes ... - hospitality and services: free wi-fi, laundry facilities, parking. The staff is very kind to give all the info everyone can possible need.... More

Absolutely charming! Great and accommodating staff.........outstanding breakfast and great location for roaming the city. Not far from the airport and in the center of town. We loved our host and I would recommend a stay here without hesitation.

My husband, daught and I found the Garnish House delightful and a great place to stay. Within a day, we booked one more night. It was located near to everything, including a conference I was attending at University College Cork. The rooms were well appointed and spacious (we had too many suitcases, but they fit and we were able to... More

Spent three nights at Garnish House in Cork on a short break.

Spent one night at the Garnish House in Cork on a driving vacation of Ireland and was sorry we didn't book for more nights. Everything was really just perfect, we had a nice room with a very comfortable bed, good size, free WiFi that worked everything you would expect from a highly rated establishment. But what really made it special... More

We spent three nights in Cork at the Garnish house in June 2012. Joanna was unbeliveably accomodating. She made room for another traveling companion of ours and allowed us to change our reservations. We stayed at the annex about a block from the main B&B which was very clean and quiet. The best part was the free laundry which was... More

Amazing choice for breakfast, after the full irish we were offered pancakes, which were divine! Great location, across from the university, and only a 10 minute walk into the city centre. Rooms were clean and staff were friendly!

I highly recommend this B&B. The property is very nice and the room was very spacious. The location was an easy stroll into town. We were met with tea service that was just the thing after a day on the road. The staff was so friendly and very helpful with directions and suggestions. The morning breakfast was large and tasty....

Joanna and staff were superb once again. The welcome alone warrants rave reviews but once you experience the made-to-order breakfast, you are sold. The location is convenient right across the street from UCC and a short 10 minute walk to town. Joanna put up all 26 of our family and they all were so very pleased with teh accommodations. I...
