Our family of 4 stayed a few nights at the Auburn House and are so glad we did! Excellent location to walk to after our arrival by train and as a "home base" to visit other destinations i.e. Cobh and Kinsale. Olive and Kieran's hospitality is wonderful and an example of what makes staying at a B&B so special. Their... More

We stayed at Auburn House for 3 nights at the start of our touring holiday of West Ireland. Both Olive & Kieran were excellent hosts making us feel very welcome & supplying us with local information. Auburn House is ideally situated within 20 minutes drive of Cork airport & within a 10 minute walk of Cork city centre. Parking is... More

Ideal location, 10 minutes walk from the bus station, with a slight hill to climb (took less than two mins to walk and we are not young!!) We used the bus station for Blarney, Kinsale and airport transfers. 10 minute walk to the City Centre for food and pubs. Olive (the proprietor) was lovely and made us feel so welcome,... More

We had a lovely one night stay with Olive and Kieran at Auburn house! The location was fantastic - we travelled by train and it was an easy walk to the B&B, as well as only being a 5 minute walk into the centre of town. Both hosts were incredibly welcoming - especially their lovely tiny dog, who was ready... More

This B+B gets top marks for the wonderful hospitality shown by Olive and Kieran, the nice comfortable beds in what was a large sized room, the delicious breakfast cooked to perfection and value for money too compared with other nearby establishments. Having seen several other rooms in this B+B, I was more than impressed throughout. The Auburn is also very... More

This has been a great BnB. Olive gave us a lot of information on sightseeing in the area. The location cannot be beat. Close to everything but still away from all the noise. I can definitely recommend a stay at Auburn when visiting Cork City. Very homely.

This was our first experience with Irish B&Bs and we feel lucky to have found Auburn House. We stayed for two nights in May 2016. Olive and Kieran (and Pippa) were lovely hosts. Garfield Terrace is a quiet neighborhood north of the Lee and 5 minutes' walk from the city center. It makes a great homebase for exploring Cork. Our... More

Auburn House is in a good location with helpful hosts. We slept well and were able to park the car and walk around Cork for a couple days. During our 11 day trip we stayed at B&B's and Olive came in tops for friendliness and service.

What can I say? It´s just the best you can get for this price. But above all it´s wonderful Olive who cares about her guests and makes this place a temporary home! Excellent! And only a stone's throw away from the City center! We´ll come again!
