If 11/10 was possible this would be it !

Could not have had a better stay or had any better more informative hosts ! It's a lovely looking historical building , the rooms are massive and spotlessly clean it has all the mod cons you need for a weekend visit or a long stay. For such a large room it did not have one speck of dust anywhere, bathroom well equipped with everything you need and towells were massive. The breakfast had lots of options and it was extremely tasty and filling , the menu even tells you were the products were bought locally. Easy to find , minutes away from train station and bus station, it's in a quiet area but a small 5 minute walk away you have loads of pubs shops and places to eat. John and Lorraine as well as being very welcoming know everything about Cork! Very helpful local knowledge is incredible and Lorraine would always whip out tablet just to confirm bus times,train times, weather forecasts and bits of info if we were planning on any day trips we went for a day in Cobh and also visit to blarney I'd recommend both if you have time.

Great hosts!

Our hosts were very friendly, helpful and offered good recommendations for where to eat and go for live music. The breakfasts were excellent. Lorraine did a great job trying to fix my husband's glasses!
