Olive and Kieran were really friendly. breakfast was savage, location was ideal for us, we walked into town and back at night. Good choice of bars and restaurants down the street, there is also a really lovely flea market around the corner on the hill where we did a bit of shopping. We'll be back for sure.

The Auburn House is a brightly painted and beautifully decorated three-story townhouse nestled above the Cork city centre. I had the pleasure to stay this past May and it was everything that one could hope for from an Irish B&B. Comfortable and conveniently located with hospitable and knowledgeable hosts. Olive and Kieran really went out of their way to ensure...

What can I say but "wow!" My son and I stayed two nights with Olive. Her breakfasts were the best we had in our two week stay all over Ireland. She was funny, kind, and so helpful. I am so sad to be home and away from this wonderful place. Thanks so much for making our trip so great!

I stayed at Auburn House for one night in October on a diversion through Cork back to Dublin having just walked the Kerry and Dingle Ways. I chose Auburn house because of its consistently excellent Tripadvisor rankings. I find the Tripadvisor rankings curious at times because to my mind Auburn is only average accommodation. I think its higher ratings come...

I can't speak highly enough of this place. I stayed for 1 night last weekend and I'm now going back again next week having cancelled the place I'd already booked before staying here. The rooms, building isn't fancy, or luxurious or anything out of the ordinary, but it's perfect for what it is and Olive and Kieran are absolutely lovely....

A very warm welcome on arrival with coffee and biscuits. Only 5 minute walk from Cork Centre but up a steep hill. Very clean comfortable room. Large breakfast menu. Owners very friendly and helpful on places to visit and places to eat. My husband and I would definitely come again.

This bed and breakfast is ideally located in the centre of Cork. There is a parking available so that you can enjoy the city walking (everything is easily reachable). Kieran and Olive are the perfect hosts: easy to communicate with before our arrival and very welcoming. The bedroom we had was nice with a big king size bed and the...

Outstanding hospitality from Olive and Kieran made us feel completely at home in their cozy Auburn House...I have stayed with them twice and have sent other friends and family who have all felt the same incredible welcome. Clean and comfortable rooms with brand new beds, fabulous home-cooked breakfast, excellent location, and easy walking distance to everything. We will definitely go...
