Fabulous 8.8 From 373 reviews

Very good 8.0
Small silly thing, as an Aussie I usually find the ventilation in European bathrooms to be poor, but this bathroom had an actual working exhaust fan 😮 So no mould

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.
