When you arrive - you feel at home. A very warm welcome from Fran and Brendan (thank you once again for the welcome-beer :-) ). The irish charme and hospitality... Great! The comfortable and fantastic rooms. And not to forget the amazing breakfast. Unfortunately we stayed there only for one night. But next year we come again (hope so!). Thank...

The amazing breakfast was a highlight of our stay. The variety of tasty dishes to choose from reflects a commitment to catering for the diverse...

I have been booking Blarney House for business trips to East London for a number of years. The friendly owners, comfortable beds, luxury duvets and quiet secure environment is ideal for our staff to relax after a long day of teaching.

From the warm welcoming from Brendon to the large sized and comfortable rooms it's hard not to relax and wind down after a long day. In the morning Fran does a wonder...

I am a regular visitor to EL and was delighted to find this guest house. It was like a home from home. Lovely room with a fabulous view. Great selection for breakfast and the hosts were very welcoming and gave me lots of tips and advice. The breakfasts were great. I will be back.

We book and payed this for B&B a month in advanced with the booking confirmations. On arrival the reception lady had no reference for our booking, was unable to answer any question posed to her in order to resolve the issue.

Blarney8, Owner at Blarney House, responded to this review

Sincere apologies to Mr and Mrs Lees-Smith for their most unfortunate experience on their arrival at Blarney House recently. Our rare and unavoidable absence was due to our attendance at our son's wedding overseas. As an owner managed guest house and experienced hosts of 20+ years, we strive to ensure our expected guests are warmly welcomed. Our trusted and capable...

I have travelled around quite a bit and this is one of the best guesthouses that I have ever stayed in. My boyfriend and I stayed two nights and, although it was two of East London's coldest days, Brendan's warm charm made our stay very enjoyable (unfortunately Fran was away that weekend). The bed was one of the most comfortable...
