    Just a good, solid, family-run guesthouse


    Friendly, mid-sized and family run – Killarney Guest House is a good choice if you are no looking for luxury, but just for a cosy accomodation for a fair price. Killarney Guest House is located close to the College, within walking distance from the city centre. Breakfast can be booked beforehand or upon arrival. I have to admit that I never tried it, mainly because breakfast time was either too late or too early on this trip.

    The room was small, but still large enough for my needs. Clean bathroom, TV, and tea/coffee making facilities were available in the room. There's a free wifi connection in the lounge. The room was facing the court, so there was no noise from the street. Noise from the staircase was blocked off by the fire door which was between my door and the staircase. If a broken TV control is the only bad thing I can remember (I didn't even complain because it was just the on/off button), it must have been a good stay. Definitively a place I would recommend.

    Directions: Coming from the city centre, follow Washington Street westwards. That street becomes first Lancaster Quay and then Western Road. You'l see Killarney Guest House on the right hand side, close to the College.

Hi Diana,
There are lots of B+Bs along the Western Road in Cork city, all probably much the same. I stayed at the Blarney Stone earlier this year and it was great, very close to the university (worth a look) and easy walking distance to to the city centre. see their website:
All the best, Anne Marie

Lucky or Unlucky

by clws

Ireland is well known for the belief in superstitions. Below are some examples of some superstitions that many believe.

Never give a knife as a gift unless you attatch a coin to it, to prevent cutting off friendly ties.
Break a mirror and you'll have 7 years bad luck
Crossed knives on a countertop will lead to an arguement
It is bad luck to walk under a ladder
Bad luck for a black cat to cross your path
It is lucky if a stray wanders into your home and remains with you, but if you move you must leave it behind.
Putting shoes on a table or chair is bad luck
A horse shoe is lucky if you hang it upright, but if you hang it upside down all the luck will run out.

Up the Rebels!!

by Waoife

The Cork gaelic football and hurling teams are known as the Rebels. Try to see a match if you can (although you may have to sell your Granny to get tickets for an All-Ireland match and they're always held in Croke Park in Dublin!) - especially hurling which is said to be the fastest field game in the world.

Barryscourt Castle - visit here instead of Blarney

by Waoife

Located in Carrigtwhoill only 10 miles from Cork city (there is a bus service from the bus station on Merchants Quay in Cork city), Barryscourt Castle is a restored castle with excellent guides who tell you the story of the castle and explain what you are looking at.

An added bonus is that admission is free!!! So the trip to Barryscourt is far more reasonable, less crowded & interesting than Blarney.


by DAO about An Spailpín Fánach

An Spailpín Fánach is pronounced ‘On Spolpeen Fawnock’ an it doesn’t get any more Irish than this. It has become so popular that they have expanded. They have live Irish music almost every night. It has the old world charm with wooden beams (some quite low) and a traditional looking bar. It has great service and is a lot of fun. You cannot miss this place. It’s on Main Street opposite the Beamish and Crawford Brewery.

By the way, the name means ‘wandering wayfarer’, so wonder on down and enjoy the Craic (crack – a good time).
