On a touring holiday of southwest Ireland. We came to Rosslare on the Stena ferry. The Blarney Stone was our first stop for 4 nights. The Guest House is situated very close to the City centre. There are a good number of a varied selection of places to eat and drink within walking distance. The road out side the front...

A good location and recently renovated, but the rooms we had were quite small and very stuffy at night. We were also allocated the wrong room for the first night and had to move to a smaller room for the second night, which was quite a pain. As the guest house was very full on our second day, there were...

We stayed here the one night we were in Cork. It was nicely furnished. It was an easy .5 mile walk downtown. Breakfast was cooked to order and there was a choice of four different items. Overall I would stay here again.

This is a charming old house right along the river. The owners were quite helpful and accommodating to our special needs. The rooms were decently sized for a B&B and it had good WiFi. Breakfast was huge!

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...
