“Our stay in Cork”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

We had one night at Kent house and throughly enjoyed our visit. Lorraine and John were very welcoming gave us good information and some coupons for food downtown, which was about a 10 min. walk. We were in room 3 and looked out at the train station so we were a little concerned about noise in the morning but we didn't hear a thing until about 7:30 and we are early risers anyway. The room was great, comfortable and clean, you just have to get used to the floor being on a slope but the house is 150 years old.

It was my recent pleasure to stay at this welcoming B & B, which I found homely, good value for money, with a close proximity to transport links.

The owners Lorraine and John were very amiable and only too pleased to share their local knowledge. They will also provide useful information regarding onward travel and locations. Each morning I enjoyed a wholesome breakfast in the cosy dining area, which in my case delayed the need for further sustenance until well into the afternoon.

I was travelling with a friend and we were both delighted that the room we were allocated was big enough to provide us with our own sleeping area and colour TV. The room was nice and clean throughout with en suite facilities.

As the name suggests, Kent House is close to Cork's Kent Railway Station. Additionally the Parnell Place Bus Station is in comfortable walking distance, thus providing easy transport links for the rest of Ireland and beyond.

I shall definitely stay here again and it is likely to be sooner rather than later.

Travelling on a budget to Cork, we stayed at this lovely B&B. I must admit, I was a bit scepticale when we first arrived but was amazed by how big and spacious the rooms were.
Everything was very clean and comfortable.
As we were 2 girls and 1 guy, we were given a family room which were a room with twin beds and an ajoining room with a double bed which were just what we needed.
The owners are very friendly people and also very helpful. They were able to provide us with some recommendations of places to go, which made our trip even better.
Breakfast was just as good and more than enough to get us going.
The train station, bus station and city centre is within walking distance, so everything you need is right there.

Thank you again for an amazing stay!

Spent a night there with my mom. It was great. I forgot some clothes there, and the owners went through great effort to mail my belongings back to me. Great location and walking distance to all of Cork. Loved Breakfast. The woman was nice and genuine
