Reviewed 17 June 2010

Wonderful atmosphere, great traditional Irish food !! Host and Hostess were so sweet and welcoming! They made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Rooms were cozy and homie . Close to down town and within walking distance to several restaurants. By far the best bed and breakfast for your money! I would recommend this bed and breakfast to any travelers who want to experience Ireland and its culture! A hidden gem!!

The name is a bit misleading as there is no River View from this B&B, but other than that this b&b is perfect. The location can’t be beat. 15 minutes to the center of Cork via the #7 or 16 bus on the same block, a shopping center directly across the street, and tons of restaurants and pubs on the same block. It's also a 20 minute train ride from Cobh and Fota. The accommodations were immaculate and comfortable. The house was very quiet, which was surprising given the bustle going on outside. As another reviewer mentioned, parking in the area is horrendous. Worse then Manhattan! We returned our rental early due to the parking situation. Catherine, the owner, went out of her way to help us out. Even called her friend who let us park in her driveway to unload our luggage. Catherine was incredibly sweet and helpful. She chatted with us for nearly 20 minutes on arrival helping us with everything imaginable. The breakfast was fantastic. In addition to the usual Irish Breakfast, Catherine made her own brown bread that was divine and we were served strawberry banana smoothies. Lovely woman. I would stay there again any time. Wireless internet access is available and you get a very strong signal in your rooms. An assortment of outlet adapters were provided in the draws, as were a hairdryer, tea/coffee, and a tv. They accept B&B vouchers.

This is an 1890 Victorian house located in a bustling "lifestyle center" (Douglas Village) about a 10 minute drive south of Cork City. The hostess was very helpful in helping us locate our destinations and showing us the bus routes/landmarks. Breakfast was tasty, satisfying, and made to order.

The room was a mixed bag. The bathroom and shower were tiny, and the mattress was comfortable but no longer level (I almost rolled out of bed once). However, the room itself was quiet, roomy, was equipped with a medium-sized LCD flatscreen TV, and had 12-foot ceilings. Also, the bathroom was small enough that the sink was in the bedroom, which is a good or bad thing depending on what you're trying to accomplish. :)

Parking is definitely an issue, as there is no dedicated lot for the B&B and there are lots of shops around. You will be parked on the street, which was safe...but you may end up a couple blocks away--not a good thing if you have a lot of luggage. All in all, the location isn't bad if you know what it is from the beginning. There is easy access to shops, restaurants, pubs, bus service, and a major freeway.
