The Ardara House was kind of depressing when we stayed there. It's a bit of a walk into Cork's center. If you're just looking for a place to put your head at the end of the night, it's serviceable. We opted for the cold cereal breakfast, and there were some fruit flies buzzing around the food, which isn't the most appetizing thing in the world. It wasn't terrible, but it was definitely the worst of the B&Bs we stayed in during our trip to Ireland. I'd recommend one of the hotels that are more in the city center. Or skip Cork altogether and stay in Kinsale, we wished we had!
