We stayed 2 nights at this lovely guesthouse and found the position of the guesthouse excellent for tourists, with 'on-sight' parking, making the stay very comfortable. The room we were given on the first floor was large, with excellent double bed, and a very clean and spacious bathroom (and modern shower). The breakfast was exceptional - very, very good and...

Went down to surprise my girlfriend and had the nicest sleep and breakfast. The lady of the house was warm and welcoming. Lovely breakfast in the morning. Ten minute walk into the centre of cork. Great restaurants nearby as well.

Clean comfortable well equipped room although compact with very small ensuite. Our room looked onto a wall which also restricted light. Host was very friendly and helpful. Good breakast, good location for city centre, restaurants in walking distance.

When I travel for work I have very simple requirements from my accommodation: clean, comfortable bed, quiet dark room, decent shower, easy parking, close to work, wifi, good breakfast, TV. More often than not, large corporate hotels fulfil these requirements and offer little in the way of unpleasant surprises. The Blarney Stone achieved most to a good standard, but still... More

I have never stayed in such a stylish b&b before. Every single inch of this property has been furnished and decorated with such attention to detail, that it is hard not to look up from the delicious Irish breakfast you are eating to carry on admiring it. The food is top quality, very plentiful, beautifully presented and served very efficiently... More

Pros: Great location. Very comfortable rooms. No road noise although close to main road.Staff are very efficient. Breakfast selection was very good. Cons: Price was on the high side for area. Parking is rather tight (front yard).

We loved this place! It was a few minutes walk from the centre, close enough to walk the restaurants and pubs but far enough from the noise. Lovely room, delicious breakfast and the owner was so nice! Our bed was comfortable and clean! The rooms have a nice touch to it with the decor. Will stay here again ☺️
