To be honest, i think Martin and Margaret are the best hosts you can ever find. They are really lovely and caring, always up for help, ideas (even if its about medicine..) and a little chat or a history lesson of Cork and the county.
The rooms and the bathroom were very clean, the bed very comfortable. It is actually a very quiet area, you can be sure to find good rest in this B&B.
Full Irish breakfast + toast, cereal and alot more was provided, as the other user said: it was enough to last way beyond lunch (and very tasty!)
Buttermarket house is located only <5 minutes walk from the city centre and only 3 minutes from the best pub of Cork: Sin E (take a look once you are there, they have great live music sessions)
Martin and Margaret, thank you for making our stay in your B&B so amazing, we will most certainly come back again ! Maria & Martin
