I can't recommend this little B&B enough!! 5 stars isn't enough to express our appreciation over the level of hospitality and service we received. Upon check-in, we were ushered into the dinning room for tea and refreshments. The scones with blackberry jam were divine!! Every member of the staff we encountered went out of their way to provide us with...

I had a brief stay at Garnish House, but would definitely return. Comfortable accommodation with a delicious breakfast, plenty of choice to suit everyone's tastes! Really friendly staff, who welcomed me with a pot of tea and scones after I had a long evening drive to Cork.

We popped into Cork for a few days and were told about this place by the Tourist office. It is located right across the street from the University so am close to the river and many nice walks. The campus is definitely worth checking out as well. We were greeted at the door with a hot cup of tea and...

Arrived and was greeted by a friendly face who offered us afternoon as a welcome gift. After carrying our suitcases upstairs (no lift although help was offered) we quickly settled into our very spacious room. Nice big bathroom with a bath and separate shower.

We stayed one night at Garnish House and it was great. We were offered a complimentary afternoon tea with delicious pastry and scones. The owner upgraded our room and gave us a bogger one located in another building right across the street which was very quiet and comforrtable

We had a lovely stay at the Garnish House. This was my fourth time staying here and my boyfriend's first, and we both loved it. Miss Lucy is always the friendliest, sweetest host.
