As a student studying abroad in France, I ventured over to Cork City with my girlfriend for three nights. This was truly a nice taste of home. The room was very big and nice, as were the breakfasts each night. I looked forward to getting up each morning for them (and it beats a pastry every AM like here in France!)
Paddy and Jane were so nice and talkative, and also suggested that we take a day trip to Kinsale which was nice. The B&B is at the top of a big hill looking over the city and is, as advertised, pretty close to every thing.
Having stayed in some questionable places during my trip abroad I cannot overstate how welcoming and comfortable it was here. To keep it short: Go ahead and book it for this place because you wouldn't need anything else!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A small quiet family run B&B set on a hill with nice views and a pretty garden, but only a 10-minute walk to the city centre, bus and train stations. The terraced house is approximately 160 years old and is furnished with some interesting antique items and paintings. Breakfast is standard full Irish, with homemade brown bread, jams & marmalade. The guests all sit around a table where they can socialise and swap holiday gossip. ... more less
