Douglas and Olwen were so welcoming and gracious. Beautiful 19th century historic home where Olwen grew up. Grand front entrance with rolling lush green lawn. I enjoyed talking with Douglas about his classic American cars. He is lucky to have a 60's Thunderbird coupe, a 70's Corvette, and and Olwen is proud of her 50's pink Cadillac. We were so...

This place is enchanting from the time you pull into the drive. Everything about it is right out of a fairy tale. From the beautiful grounds surrounding the home with lovely trees, flowers, bushes, rabbits and birds of every kind, to the incredible rooms that I can't even begin to describe! My best friend and I were on our "dream...

This was our favorite place to stay of all the b&b's we booked on our trip. The rooms are luxurious and our mattress was brand new and incredibly comfortable. The home and rooms themselves are just charming and the breakfast each morning was fantastic. Allwen was such a gracious hostess! Overall, it was an absolute pleasure to stay here.

My wife and I stayed one night and loved it. The house is set amongst lawns and tall trees, including huge redwoods, and the atmosphere is both peaceful and welcoming. We had a vast room with a large four-poster bed - very comfortable - and a very generous jacuzzi. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. Blarney town is only...

We stayed with another couple as we traveled to the Blarney castle in September 2016. A very unique Bed and Breakfast but realize this is an old Irish house and the owner's childhood home and is decorated accordingly. Our host helped us find an amazing Irish restaurant for dinner that had awesome corned beef (and I don't even eat red...

We stayed here in July, 2016. We arrived and our breaths were taken away! I lamented that we only were staying one night. Honestly I could have spent several days staying at Maranatha Country House and in Blarney itself. The owners are such good people, we loved the sun room (and everything else about the house!!!!). Such a magical place...

This was an amazing B&B!! We had a long day and it was such a pleasant surprise when we walked into this beautiful B&B. Our host was absolutely fabulous. It was so nice to chat to her about her childhood home she grew up in and then decided to share with us. I have never stayed in such an beautiful...

We stayed here one night, we stayed in a lavender room. The house was very friendly, clean and well kept. We ended up taking a taxi to blarney for dinner and had no issues with help calling for a taxi. All around awesome. Would definitely stay longer next time.
