The place was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the hosts were charming and eager to assist us to ensure we had a great stay. The location was nice, just a short walk... More

I stayed for four nights in the Blue Dolphin House B and B. The room was very comfortable with en-suite, t.v, kettle and tea/coffee facilities. It was evident the owners enjoyed the guests, knowing each persons name and checking if breakfast was suitable every morning. There is parking available to the rear of the building.

Frances was very friendly and offered a lovely place when Cork was packed solid. The rooms are tidy and clean and there is safe parking at the rear. Its an ideal location for all amenities in Cork. We also enjoyed a great breakfast and Sean offered a cheery greeting to all. Loved that place!
