Feel like royalty with lots of antiques in spotless rooms. Good Wi-Fi. Wide choices at breakfast sets one up for the first part of the day. Stairs. No elevator. Friendly welcome. No noise issues when we were there.

Spent two lovely nights at the Blarney Stone Guesthouse. The interior was of white and gold with antique furnishings and beautiful chandeliers and sconces. There is a small patio in the rear of build. Their Irish breakfast was the best on this trip. We stayed in room 3 which was larger than most. Not much of a view but it...

This is a Victorian styled guesthouse about a ten minute walk into the centre of Cork. The bedrooms are rather small but well decorated while paying attention to the overall period effect. We stayed in a superior room but from what I could discern there appeared to be little difference between the superior and standard. Our room was at the...

I would highly recommend Blarney Stone Guest house. It is in an excellent location, with UCC campus at the doorstep and the city centre only a five minute walk away. The rooms of this beautiful period house are tastefully and stylishly decorated and of a very high standard throughout. There is a wide range of mouth-watering breakfast options to choose...

Thanks Angela for such a lovely stay in a beautifully decorated and cosy B&B. Centrally located with an excellent restaurant, the Liberty Grill, within 10 minutes walk. Genuinely friendly and welcoming host. Highly recommended!

I have stayed in more than two dozen Irish B&Bs all over the country. This one tops my list! The room was very comfortable and had been updated to a very high standard. The location is also excellent, just steps from UC Cork campus or to many great restaurants, pubs and the heart of downtown Cork. The breakfast was incredible....

Beautifully renovated period house, lovely furnished rooms, lounge and dining area. Warm Irish welcome, nothing too much trouble for the owner and staff. Breakfast, fresh fruit, freshly cooked tasty breakfast. Thank you Angela and staff for making our first visit to Cork, such a pleasant one.

Firstly, I would like to say that the rooms and public areas of this guest house have been decorated to a very high standard however many of the beds plus the pricing structure seem to be completely off track. Unfortunately, the owner Angela became quite hostile and dismissive when we mentioned the snags and I'm guessing she has no intention...
