We recently went to cork on a family trip. John & Helen welcomed our family, with open arms, into their beautiful home. The rooms have everything you need, en suite, tea/coffee making facilities & absolutely stunning views of their beautiful garden & the sea (from room no 1) the beds are really very comfortable too. The breakfast was extremely tasty...

Down the little driveway it's almost like a little island. The house is surrounded by flowers and garden paths. Even the smallest room we stayed in was wonderful and furnished with all the small details you wouldn't expect. John and Helen are a lovely couple and they really accomplished it to mix the american flair into an irish BnB. Had...

What a cute place. Helen and John were so friendly and kind. They even offered some of their grandchildren's toys for my 6 year old grandson to play with. The rooms were small but comfortable and Helen has a BEAUTIFUL garden! They were great about recommending places to eat and visit.

If you like gardens you'll enjoy staying at John and Helen's. Helen was happy to show me around her flower garden and is very knowledgeable. Both John and Helen made us most welcome. We were a long way from home and did appreciate being treated as friends. Breakfast in the conservatory overlooking the garden was very pleasant. The food was...

This BnB was lovely. The gardens are superb and the house is fantastic condition. It is small, so has the feel of a real BnB and with hosts John and Helen right on the premises, we were experienced a real Irish stay. The cost was low for two people and the electric shower was interesting! Not luxury at all, but...

Hello Francois and Cindy, Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We know our Room 3 is small, a bit like a ship's cabin and we are glad you were comfortable there. You were lovely guests and we hope we continue to get more like you! Kind regards, John and Helen

John and Helen were very welcoming hosts. The property has a beautiful garden, room was very comfortable, looking out onto said garden. John even brought in the washing that I had left on the washing line and put it through the tumble drier for me. I loved the breakfast arrangement, with everyone sitting down together which led to some interesting...
