I have stayed in more than two dozen Irish B&Bs all over the country. This one tops my list! The room was very comfortable and had been updated to a very high standard. The location is also excellent, just steps from UC Cork campus or to many great restaurants, pubs and the heart of downtown Cork. The breakfast was incredible....

Beautifully renovated period house, lovely furnished rooms, lounge and dining area. Warm Irish welcome, nothing too much trouble for the owner and staff. Breakfast, fresh fruit, freshly cooked tasty breakfast. Thank you Angela and staff for making our first visit to Cork, such a pleasant one.

Firstly, I would like to say that the rooms and public areas of this guest house have been decorated to a very high standard however many of the beds plus the pricing structure seem to be completely off track. Unfortunately, the owner Angela became quite hostile and dismissive when we mentioned the snags and I'm guessing she has no intention...

Spent one night at this B&B. Beautifully renovated period terrace. Host greeted us warmly. Gave a choice of room. Beautifully furnished. Bed comfortable with a great breakfast including hot options. For an evening meal there is a hotel less than 5 minutes walk which offers great moderately priced meals in a relaxed casual atmosphere on the river. Would recommend this...

We would highly recommend this accommodation. Albeit we only stayed one night, if we had had more time in the area we would have been more than happy to stay at the Blarney Guesthouse much longer. The guest house is lovely and very nicely appointed. The owners have spent a great deal of time and attention to detail on the...

My partner and I enjoyed a brief stay at Blarney Stone Guesthouse in early September. Our room was very well-maintained, well-decorated, and clean - all furnishings were on the newer side and the bathroom seems to have been remodeled fairly recently. The breakfast was on par with other B&Bs we stayed at during our trip to Ireland - with the...

Had two rooms here for one night at the end of our trip. The rooms were beautifully decorated as were all the common areas. Rooms a little on the small side but we knew that from previous reviews. Did not have breakfast as we were up too early so cannot comment. Did not have the authentic charm of some other...

Stayed at Blarney Stone guesthouse overnight with a group of 7. Wonderful experience. The historic house is meticulously maintained with well appointed rooms and common areas. From the minute you pull up and walk in, it's clear the host Ann is focused on providing her guests with an enjoyable stay. Breakfast was delicious with many options and quick attentive service....

This guesthouse is an absolute gem, the decor is stunning and the host Angela is very welcoming. It was however a little difficult to find so we have a tip for enter 19 Western Road, Cork on your GPS this will bring you to close proximity to the guesthouse which is located on the right hand side of the street...
