Complementary afternoon tea with all the trimmings on arrival (we were sorry we had eaten lunch!) A lovely surprise. Such friendly and welcoming staff. We stayed in the 4 bed (2 singles and 1 double) room across the road from the main guest house. There...More

Thank you for your fantastic review of Garnish House. We should indeed begin advising guests not to eat lunch before they arrive so they can thoroughly enjoy the scones, cakes and other afternoon tea treats -- you will know better the next time you come...More

We stayed at the Garnish House for one night in March 2013. The hostess was super friendly and hospitable. The room was nicely furnished and the beds were warm and comfy. We had a family room with a temporary bed so we could sleep five...More

Thank you for your kind review of Garnish House, which I read with pleasure. Delighted to hear that the freshly baked scones persuaded you to try to the famous Garnish House -- guests who book room-only often regret it when they see the breakfast menu!...More

Garnish House was a lovely place to stay. It was however a little way out of town. Without a car it is a 30 minute walk into the Cork CBD. We stayed in a building across the road from the main reception and breakfast hall....More

We paid a room only rate. The full breakfast was an additional 10€ and for that you could eat a massive meal whereas I had just cereal (plus fruit, yogurt etc on it), fruit juice, coffee and toast for 6€.
