    Basic B&B


    This clean, basic B&B is situated on Lower Glanmire Road and is within easy walking distance of Cork city centre making it an excellent budget base for a Cork break! It is surrounded by about 4 or 5 other B&Bs of similar nature.

    Whilst basic, this clean B&B provides all your needs for a short break to Cork and its surrounds. I booked single accommodation and had a twin room to myself which comprised of two single beds, bedside cabinet, dressing table area, single wardrobe, dining chair and small TV. The en-suite shower room was provided with basic toiletries (bring your own shampoo) and was adequate for my stay.

    Breakfast included a choice of cereals and a hot breakfast of either full Irish (bacon, sausage, fried egg and beans) or any of these components cokked as you desired (e.g. beans on toast, scrambled egg on toast, etc.). Breakfast was served until a reasonable hour in the B&B's dining room.

    Within a two minute walk of the B&B is Cork train station with easy connections around Country Cork and destinations throughout Ireland.

    Lower Glanmire Road is a significant arterial route out from the city and, with this B&B situated alongside the road, noise may be a problem for light sleepers in rooms situated at the front - ask for one to the rear if this gives concern.

    The B&B also has a TV lounge where guests can relax after a busy day's sightseeing, although rooms are also provided with TVs.

    Unique Quality: The full Irish breakfast is served on small plates (slightly larger than an average side plate) and yet manages to fit 2 rashers of bacon, 2 sausages, fried egg and beans - a true balancing act!!

    If arriving by train, turn right out of the station approach and the B&B is a two minute walk along the same side as the train station.
    If arriving into Cork bus station, turn right out of the station and over the bridge over the River Lee, walk two blocks and turn right. Keep walking past the train station and the B&B is just past the station on the same side.
    If arriving into Cork Airport, take the Bus Eireanne AirCoach or SkyLink shuttles to Cork bus station.
