Good Hotel Guide Review

High above Cork harbour, the flower-laden garden of this grand Victorian house creates a cheering welcome on the outskirts of a historic port town. Pam Mulhaire is the friendly hostess. Arriving guests are treated to a hot drink and home-baked scones in the elegant drawing room, where a blaze crackles on cool days. B&B accommodation is found in spacious, high-ceilinged bedrooms filled with period pieces, flower arrangements; bathrooms have thick towels, terry cloth robes, high-end toiletries. Communal, organic breakfasts, served at a mahogany table in the light- washed dining room overlooking the garden, have seasonal fruits, preserves and home-baked brown bread. Pam has good advice on local attractions and restaurants.

Guest comments

'Very comfortable bed and breakfast in large early Victorian house; beautiful room overlooking the gardens and across to the sea, with impressive power shower en-suite. We were welcomed with homemade scones and tea by Pam Mulhaire, who has a wealth of knowledge as to the best places to eat, see, etc. Breakfast was delicious with muesli, fruit compotes, cheese, home baked breads and scones and full Irish breakfast, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. ' - Christopher and Sheila Richards - October, 2009
