We stayed here for one night in Cork and we LOVED our stay here!! The service here was beyond excellent and nice! Amazing beds and wonderful breakfast that morning. Everything was VERY clean and its just a short walk into town. And free parking! A nice young man sat down and gave us a map, told us the best places...

I should have written this a year ago! We were a family group of five women, one gent visiting the summer of 2011 (July). Although there were beds to fit all six in two rooms, the wonderful greeter/overseer/woman in charge (I did know her name.....) asked if my nephew would like to sleep on the sleep sofa in the lounge....

I spent one night at Garnish House and enjoyed the warm welcome and delicious food that was offered in abundance. Check-in was preceeded by a basket of scones, cake and tea but even more welcoming was the handshake from the woman of the house - a first for me and very friendly it was too. I was then directed across...

This guesthouse has the best breakfast I've experienced; you can choose from about 30 different options, buffet, Irish breakfast, whiskey or Bailey's porridge, Florentine omelettes, etc etc. Tea, coffee, bread, sweet buns served to you upon arrival and while you're enjoying them the waiter is giving you all information you require of your Cork visit. The rooms are very clean...

We were thrilled with afternoon tea on arrival, but then were completely blown away with the breakfasts at Garnish House. Great quality, huge variety and generous serves. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Great value!

Stayed at Garnish House on my 40th birthday with a number of friends, lovely place. We were all treated to a very warm welcome, tea, coffee & cake before check-in. Breakfasts are amazing. The room we stayed in was clean, spacious and comfortable. Thoroughly recommend!

This is a lovely B&B, however our family of 3 stayed down the road at their sister property after we thought we'd add an extra night at the last minute, and needed a triple room in August - at the height of summer season. We called about 4 pm and asked if they could accomodate us a day early, and...

Good quiet location for walking into Cork centre; lovely to have the Uni grounds on the door step for a pleasant stroll. The breakfast choice was amazing - as a vegetarian there was enough choice for me to have a different cooked breakfast option every day of our 3 day stay!! Staff were always keen to offer you more toast...

Upon reading the reviews for Garnish House we immediately decided to book a room with them. Unfortunately, it was not what we expected. The tea and scones upon arrival were wonderful as was the food at breakfast but that is about all that was wonderful. We barely had enough space in the room to open our suitcases and the bathroom...
