Everything about this property was great, except the air conditioner in our room was broken so it got a bit warm. Other than that, everything was fantastic. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The location can't be beat either!

Property is beautiful and in the middle of everything that is cork. Walking distance is literally out the front door and everything is right there. We stayed here one night for easy driving distance to the Blarney castle (15 minutes away). I will warn you this hotel is not quiet. We had the windows open for fresh air and AC and it was quite loud out until about 1-2am when the pubs close. But other than that it was absolutely gorgeous.
