About this listing
Situated in a leafy suburb overlooking Cork's inner harbour 2 Clarence Terrace is a fine example of a late Georgian townhouse only 10 mins walk from the city center.. While built in early 1800s and retaining period features from window panes through to floors doors and fireplaces we also offer modern comforts and conveniences including free wifi and private car parking. We have 2 large south facing rooms rooms each containing a king sized bed(suitable for 1 or 2 person), comfortable armchairs and large writing desks . The rooms also offer commanding views out over the city for a distance of 10 miles as befitting a former resident of the 1880s Maj. General A. Stubbs. Breakfast encompasses the range from fresh fruit salad, yogurt and museli through to the full Irish.
Cyril is an extremely kind host: he provided lots of info on Cork and the surroundings. His b&b is very nice: we stayed in a well furnished room, with a lovely view. It was clean and tidy.
Breakfast is complete and delicious. The house is within walking distance from the center. I would highly recommend Clarence Terrace for a visit to Cork.
We loved Cyril's B&B. The rooms are lovely and the breakfast was delicious. Cyril was very helpful.
Perfect night in Cork!! Incredibly welcoming host, very knowledgeable about the area, both places to go and the local history, and very charming and easy to talk with. Huge room, and great full irish breakfast, the perfect B&B experience, competely recommend.
Cyril es un gran anfitrión, e hizo que en nuestra corta estancia nos sintiéramos como en casa. La localización del sitio era fantástica y la habitación enorme y muy bien decorada. El desayuno abundante y muy rico. Volveremos sin duda.
Cyril was a lovely host. He was very welcoming and a wealth of knowledge about the history of the local area. He provided a wonderful breakfast and interesting conversation. The location is good, close to pubs and restaurants. The room is comfortable as is the bed. We would recommend staying here.
I don't even know where to begin in describing how wonderful our stay with Cyril was! We only stayed one night in Cork and once we got to Cyril's place, we immediately regretted not staying longer. The B&B is beautiful, probably the nicest B&B I've ever stayed in. Our room was so luxurious it was hard to leave it to go out and see the town. Cyril himself is simply an extraordinary host. When we arrived and told him we were there to see a family grave, he immediately offered to drive us out there and show us where the grave was. (In fact, he drove us out there twice because someone accidentally left her purse out there... VERY kind man.) He knows so much about the area and the history, we had great conversations with him and learned much about Cork. He also cooked us a delicious vegetarian breakfast. If you are staying in Cork, do not pass the chance to stay with Cyril. We still regret not staying longer. Definitely the highlight of our tour through Ireland!
We enjoyed our stay at Cyrils place very much! He told us much about Cork and the surroundings. The breakfast was spectacular an the room really nice!
About the Host, Cyril
Having graduated from University College Cork with a Commerce degree I worked in our family hotel outside Cork city for over 20 yrs. I now run a small bed and breakfast close to the city center of Cork. With a strong mixture of Gaelic and Norman blood running through my veins I am very interested in Irish and European history. Having studied Gaelic, Latin, French,Italian and Spanish I would like to have the time to master some of them.I tend more towards classical music with a strong bias to Italian Opera.
