I have a great apartment, with 2 available double bedrooms, and just a stones throw from Blarney Castle. You will love the area and the host too!
Pat was such a wonderful host! He made everything easy to get situated and made sure our stay went smoothly. His apartment has everything you need: a comfy bed, warm shower, wi-fi, and he even laid out a variety of breakfast foods for us the next morning. I will miss the Lion Cereal! Pat is everything you could ask for in a host. He made great conversations, took genuine interest in them, and is very knowledgeable; he is just so fun to talk to. He was so kind enough to offer to take us into Cork with him for the evening, but we stayed behind as we had an early morning. Even though my stay was just for a night, he truly made it a pleasant and memorable stay. Thanks a million, Pat!
Pat was a great host and absolute gent. He volunteered to pick me up from the bus stop in Cork and even cooked me steak and chips on the first evening!
I imagine this isn't typical, but it goes to show what a generous host Pat can be.
I was house-hunting in Cork during the three days I stayed with Pat, he was full of great advice about where to look, he knows a lot about Cork!
The room was neat and comfortable.
The only downside is that Blarney is a little far from Cork city if you don't have access to a car. The Bus isn't terribly frequent and the journey takes about 30 minutes in to Cork city.
That said, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying with Pat.
Pat was a wonderful host for the one night that we stopped. His apartment is modern, clean and comfortable. Pat was good enough to abide our late arrival in bad weather and welcomed us with a beer, the true sign of a great host! The location is only 5 mins drive from Blarney Castle too. Although it was just a stopover for us, Pat was very friendly and we felt welcomed and would definitely recommend people stay here.
Pats place was in blarney only a stone throw from the Famous Blarney Castle and stone. We spent several nights there. He was more than welcoming and has a lovely apartment. It is only 15mins from Cork city in a nice quiet location.
