I first stayed here about 10 years ago on the recommendation of a friend and have been back on several occasions over the years, most recently January 2013. There is always a warm welcome with tea and scones - once a friend came early to meet me and was also given tea while he waited. My bed was very comfortable...

Though the days are wet, it helps that the hotel make us feel at home. The staff are helpful and approachable. Room is cleaned everyday. It is one of the best hotel we stay for our trip. It is a 20minutes walk to the City Centre, where the shopping and actiivities are.

We went away for new year with 11 of us in our group. The accommodation was fantastic. All of us apart from one (who was just next door) had free roam of a house where we had our own rooms and bathrooms and a kitchen, front room and dining room downstairs.

Garnish House is actually made up of three different buildings, so you're not sure which one you might be in. We were in the green building across the street in a twin on the back side of the house. It was very quiet and comfortable. The decor is not contemporary, but the room was fine and clean. The water pressure...

We stayed at the Garnish House after staying at three other B&B's throughout our tour of Ireland. It was the nicest of four. The proprietor and her staff give much attention to detail and pleasing their patrons. The breakfast was delicious, a huge variety, nothing spared. Our room was clean and cozy. Thank you!
