I have stayed in Garnish house previously and have recommended it as a good destination in Cork city.Now I would not be as quick to encourage you to book here.
I phoned to book a single room for one night and was astounded to hear that the cost was 85 euros.However I had stayed here two years ago and was impressed.Not any more.On arrival I was taken to a house not just next door but we had to cross a major road.I was expected to walk back to Garnish house for breakfast and not even an umbrella if it was raining.
The room was ok.Just what you would expect in any b and b today.There was one flaw however no bath.Very poor value for 85 euros.In addition the house is not staffed and this left me feeling very insecure.
Breakfast was indeed lovely.But I wonder at all the rave revues about the breakfast just how much can you eat at one sitting ?
I will be looking for better value when next in Cork. This is one woman who has had enough mauling at the paws of the celtic tiger.
