“Best Bed ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

It is, as other reviewer say, a small unremarkable semi in suburbia. But you're not paying for luxury! And your hostess is just lovely, so so helpful, cheerful and runs a tight ship, in a good way. The room and shower room are spotless, and the bed linen crisp and clean and the BED!! Wow - seriously, such comfort. She says a lot of guests ask her what I did which was WHERE did you buy that mattress?? (Apparently it's a KingCoil) Anyway, it was super.

ONe thing, if you are obese or over 8 months pregnant you will not fit in the shower, so don'y stay here. Otherwise, if you want a comfy, clean, quiet, convenient, free wi-fi, and cheery place to stay this is for you. I can't comment on the breakfast as we slept in (another plus!!) and we were too late, but the smells wafting up the stairs nearly tempted me out of that gorgeous bed...

I'd happily return.

I stayed here for 1 night to attend a course at UCC university, which is nearby.

The house was very ordinary, but the owner has gone to a great deal of trouble to make guests feel welcome, with good service, nice furnishings, a large en suite bathroom and an excellent breakfast. I would certainly come here again on a similar trip.

I'm staying now and then in this B&B. It is located about 10 minutes walk from the Cork Institute of Technology and about the 10-15 minutes from the Cork Universit y Hospital.
Although Bishopstown can be quite busy, it is located in a quiet area.

Rooms are nice and clean. Very good service.
One of the best breakfast I experienced in Ireland (orange juice, muesli, fresh fruits,
cooked full irish breakfast, toast, tea or coffee) accompanied by some good irish traditional music (from CD). From the breakfast room you have a nice view into a large garden.

Very nice, friendly personal (Kay and Dan). Always ready to help.

There is Dunnes Stores at about 5 Minutes away. The Bishopstown Bar at about 7 Minutes.

Always enjoyed to stay in this B&B.

This b & b isn't a very big one. It's in a semi-detached house but is charming, spotless and breakfasts are lovely. The breakfast room is lovely too overlooking the really big garden. It's in a really calm spot so you hear no noise at all at night while still being near the city centre 10 minutes on the n° 8 bus or taxi which isn't expensive. It is run by Mr & Mrs O' Donovan and they are very nice. I always stay here when I go back to Cork because I came from the same area originally. As far as I know credit cards aren't accepted and you have to pay in cash. Last time I had one of the biggest rooms with a nice big adjoining bathroom and it was 45 euros a night which is very reasonable.
