Breakfast has got even better, just superb. Staff really nice and great location. Only gripe was that I could not find RTE2 on telly to watch match - but that might be my fault!
John, ie3 night business trip
Fair 4.0
room was noisy due to a water tank gurgling loudly all night. Teapot contained previous guests cold tea. No replenishment of teabags when room was serviced. Decent size room with comfy bed.

Garnish House
Garnish House is a lovely little B & B. Reasonably priced located within walking distance of the city centre. The staff were efficient and friendly. I would have no reservations in recommending Harnish House for accommodation in Cork City.

Simply the BEST!!
Absolutely wonderful! I simply can't rate this place highly enough! On arrival, guests are shown to the dining room and presented with a sumptuous afternoon tea selection of home baked goodies, jams and a pot of tea - amazing! The duty manager who greeted me was extremely welcoming and helpful, taking my bags to my room and explaining details. My room, though small, was delightful, spotlessly clean, quiet and very comfortable. My request for a lower floor room - I have limited mobility - was happily granted. Whilst staying at Garnish House, my sore throat and cold developed into a sinus infection and bronchitis so I wasn't able to go sightseeing. However, my lovely room was a welcome retreat. Late checkout of 12pm (standard policy at Garnish House) was a lifesaver for me meaning that I could rest in bed until catching a taxi to my coach. When I did finally surface to say goodbye, a dear lady (I think she was the owner) greeted me and said just to sit in the lounge to wait for my taxi and she'd get a cup of tea for me. Bless her, not just a cup of tea but a whole pot together with scones, butter and jam!!! In every aspect - service above and beyond the norm, room condition, staff, value for money and location (very handy to town) Garnish House Guest House excels. I certainly wouldn't consider staying anywher else if I 'm fortunate enough to revisit Cork in the future and I highly recommend it to all travelers.

Pleasant and good value
We stayed for a short weekend break. The service as impeccable. The room was on the small side, but suited our needs for the short stay. The walls with the adjoining room were a little thin, and later in the evening we could hear the room neighbours.

Best ever
I love this place. ome here every year. It's what it is - friendly, welcoming, all the essentials - and best breakfasts ever - = the rooms are slightly small and the bathroom fittings can be eccentric - the central heating is also a bit iffy and the views are grim BUT I'd rather stay here than the posh place down the road.
Catherine, gb2 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Paid a lot for this room-not worth the price. The guest house is nice and loved the welcoming tea HOWEVER the in room whirlpool didn't work and bathroom, though large was a bit run down. Did get some great dining recommendations from host. If you can get a reasonable rate I would recommend it but it is overpriced for sure.
