The place had parking and that was helpful. The room was a good size.
Although the place was decent, I did not like the location at all. It was right next to the University, so was in the heart of the student bar scene. The university campus was beautiful, but as we walked the bar restaurant area , all of the bars/restaurants had security guards out front. Just up the street from the place were multiple closed boarded up buildings. Definitely did not have a comfortable safe feeling.
The dining room had a view of the river
It was difficult to find and there wasn’t much around it
Staff very helpful and responsive.Bed very comfortable and room was quiet.For a solo room it was what I expected.Good value for money.
Just needed a bit of smartening up -E.g. towels frayed and decor dated but I paid for a cheap central place to stay.
The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Without going into specific details, Karen (the manager) made significant efforts to keep our travel plans in Ireland on track. She also made our stay very pleasant and enjoyable through her personal attention . The property is just across the street from University College Cork, which has a beautiful historic campus. The guest house is only a fifteen minute walk from Cork city center and there are three bus lines that stop close to this property. The neighborhood is clean and quiet. The breakfast is copious and reasonably priced. The breakfast room is spacious and affords a nice view of the adjoining river channel.
Nice location on the river, app 15 min walking from the city center. Breakfast served on the terrace facing the river, very beautiful. Rooms are normally equipped and comfortable. Very friendly owner!
We had room near the entrance and it was noisy from the corridor when guests were talking on their way in and out.
