Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed in Geraldine's lovely home for three nights over the weekend. Geraldine's home is fabulous; bright, warm and very clean. The breakfast was generous and of very high quality (Geraldine's fried eggs are perfection itself). Geraldine is a gracious host, very friendly, informative and hospitable. The house itself is located off a quiet country road, 5 minutes from the city centre by car. I would recommend Geraldine's to anyone visiting Cork.

    Breakfast superb, spotless clean, lovely helpful lady.

  • Geraldine was an excellent host! Everything was perfect for our stay with a lovely bedroom and living space. Breakfast was amazing with cooked breakfast two out of three mornings! We were very well looked after and were given many good pieces of advice which we are greatful for. We would absolutely recommend Geraldine as a great place to stay for your visit to Cork.

  • I enjoyed very nice accommodations and very pleasant service/camaraderie at this B&B. I spent two days in Cork while doing some family heritage research and was very happy that I chose to stay with Geraldine. The room I stayed in had ample space for my needs and en suite bathroom along with ample community areas including a very nice kitchen. Along the way I met her kids who were very nice and helpful and Geraldine herself was very patient about answering my many questions.

    The Good: Great house with wonderful modern rooms. Geraldine was the consummate hostess and always tried to make sure I was sorted out throughout my stay. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom and shower were adequate. Late night access was easy and I had no issues having my own car.

    The Bad: Nothing.

    The Mediocre: Only two minor issues: The location made initially finding the house a little difficult, but through several frantic texts Geraldine and I made it work. Also, the WiFi did not reach my room (which Geraldine was working on fixing.) However, the signal was fine in the common room below, so I was still able to get online appointments etc completed.

    Geraldine and her family are great hosts who know how to be helpful without being intrusive. Her house is very nice, modern, and spacious. I would certainly stay with her again when in the area. This is right between a 4 and 5 star rating, so I wish I could give 4.5 stars. (I don't give out 5 star ratings often but she was very close!)

    Response from Geraldine:

    Thank you John for your kind and very detailed review. You will be glad to know that the WiFi issues mentioned have been resolved and the WiFi has been restored fully to Guest Bedroom 1. as this was the only room that the WiFi signal weaken during our recent storms.

  • spacious and very comfortable room, everything I needed was there, including 4 soft and warmy pillows
    house is very beautifull, and Ger and Dermot are very nice and welcome people, they make me feel home and help me with everything

  • Where do I start, staying with Geraldine and her family made my stay in Ireland so enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble, Geraldine very kindly offered to pick me up from Cork Airport and from the moment I walked in the door there were offers of tea and something to eat. Geraldine and her husband Dermot were always offering advice on where to visit and what to see and where to eat.
    While in cork I did some family research and found some interesting information and it was exciting to be able to share this with them, they were genuinely interested, in fact Dermott made several phone calls on my behalf, to help in the search.
    My room was 5 star beautifully decorated with a lovely ensuite and walk in wardrobe, everything is spotless. Geraldine made sure I always had a lovely breakfast she offered a cooked breakfast but I was happy with muesli so she went out and bought some along with fruit and yoghurt.
    The BNB is a short bus ride into the beautiful city of Cork and the bus stop is only 5minutes walk from home. I chose to hire a car after the first day and Geraldine kindly lent me a GPS which was a life saver, though I still managed to go down a one way street!
    Geraldine's children are lovely well mannered teenagers and were always polite and helpful and Alfie the dog is adorable. If you want to be part of a lovely warm family in a beautiful new home then you should definitely stay here. Highly recommended thank you so much hope to see you soon.

  • An absolutely fabulous family! I highly recommend staying here. They made me feel right at home, the room with ensuite was beautiful. Very easy to talk too and gave me good tips on local entertainment. Very accommodating. If you are looking for somethng in central Cork this is not for you, but if you are looking for a relaxing place to stay will easy access by bus to Cork then this is definately for you.

  • My Husband & I had a lovely stay with the Family! They were very gracious hosts that went out of their way to make our stay comfortable.

    I highly recommend staying with them if you are planning a stay in Cork!

  • Not only a simple stay over including breakfast, but a warm welcome to their family! We were suited in an absolutely clean and very nicely furnitured room. Every detail was thought through very well. The house is very modern and we felt so welcome. They even helped us plan our further journey, so that we could get out the best of our first Ireland-trip. The place was not easy to find, but Geraldine was so helpful and even picked us up to follow her trace, to find their home.

    A perfect stay a bit outside Cork city, with all the comfort we needed, perfectly served breakfast and hosts we can warmly recommend with our whole heart. Home away from home, just perfect!
