We were made to feel very welcome from the very beginning of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for Paddy and Jane. The room was clean and had plenty of room. A great addition was an armchair in the room that we hadnt found in other B&B's. This allowed for the read of a good book on the odd...

Having never stayed in a B&B before I didn't know what to expect. However I'm pleased to say that I was made to feel extremely welcome by the hosts. The B&B is in a great location near Cork City Centre which is easily within walking distance. The room was of a good size and the bed extremely comfy! The breakfast...

Myself and two of my friends stayed there for a night while we were visiting Cork and Blarney. The owners were very welcoming and ready to help us with any issues or questions we had. We had a fantastic time in Cork and this B & B was definitely a contributing factor. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the...

I stayed with a friend and had a marvelous time here at Sunmount. The rooms were clean, the food was good, and the service was amazing! Both Paddy and Jane were wonderful hosts and great receptive people that were pleasant as well as respectful and courteous. The location is about a 20 minute walk to downtown, but it is an...

We stayed for 2 nights in July and couldn't have asked for more. The hosts were incredibly accommodating and very helpful. The room was quite large and had all the amenities we required. The breakfast was defintely the highlight of our stay! I completely disagree with the other reviews saying that the location is not convenient. Unless you're afraid of...

We booked at Sunmount based on TripAdvisor reviews. The experience really undermines my assumption that most TA reviews are reliable! This B&B is up steep hills and not convenient for walking downtown. The most disagreeable thing was the odor of cigarettes and the hacking coughs of the owner early in the morning. The house is clean but shabby. The room...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small quiet family run B&B set on a hill with nice views and a pretty garden, but only a 10-minute walk to the city centre, bus and train stations. The terraced house is approximately 160 years old and is furnished with some interesting antique items and paintings. Breakfast is standard full Irish, with homemade brown bread, jams & marmalade. The guests all sit around a table where they can socialise and swap holiday gossip. ... more   less
