A number of us stayed here for a conference at the university. We were welcomed with tea and scones and the warm, genuine greetings and hospitality continued throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. While the accomodation in Garnish house is modest, as you would expect in a B&B, the hospitality is better than any five star hotel .... More

The Garnish House was recommended to me by friends who stayed here a couple years ago. We spend one night here before picking up our friends who were flying into the Cork Airport. We arrived a little after 6pm and were greeted by a very friendly staff member who provided us with a delicious spread of baked goods and hot... More

The things that I value like great food and friendly and caring staff make Garnish hard to beat. The bed was extremely comfortable also. The food was top quality and we were encouraged to eat more which I found impressive. The staff even knew the wi-fi code! You will not find better.

We were greeted on arrival with afternoon tea, which was delicious. The staff were very friendly and only too happy to help. My husband is coeliac and the owner Johanna made him gluten free scones, bread and pancakes, she could not do enough for us. I have never seen a breakfast menu with such variety it was amazing.

Staff were lovely, arrived after 8 pm to tea and scones. Room a little small and basic, no dressing table or mirror. Bathroom tiny and a sliding door. clean however. Breakfast was outstanding, easily the best I've ever had, didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. Competitive price point.

This B&B is all about location and the food. The scones and tea on arrival are so good. The breakfast is fantastic, with seconds being offered all through out. So friendly and warm.

room was ok, bathroom was small and old. The room was older and tv didn't work too well. The food was awesome and I think this is what draws people in. The lady and gentleman who worked there were very nice and welcoming. The water in our bathroom leaked in the shower and the towels had holes in them.
