Excellent play to stay

Write a review? It’s almost impossible without copying the superlatives already lavished on Garnish House. What a splendid five-day stay we had there this May … [what] impressed me most was the sheer warmth, willingness and enthusiasm from every member of staff. [We] were charmed by the place and the people. I hadn’t visited Ireland for nearly fifty years and now I realize what I’ve been missing.” – Johnnie885, TripAdvisor, May 2013

Welcoming place to stay in Cork

We were at Garnish House for 2 nights. All the reviews get it right about the welcoming, helpful staff. We were greeted warmly every time we walked in. The afternoon tea and scones was an unexpected delight, the best afternoon tea in Ireland. Don’t miss it!” –Jim46, TripAdvisor, May 2013

Excellent stay

Johanna welcomed us with tea and a fabulous fruit cake and scones … She was very warm and made us feel very at home. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing with a choice of many items … I can without hesitation conclude that this was the best B&B we stayed in during our trip.” — Sharnez, TripAdvisor, June 2013

Highly recommended

I had the pleasure of staying at Garnish House four times. I was [studying part-time] at UCC and the highlight of our trips to Cork were sitting down to a Garnish breakfast. It never ever disappointed. They serve the nicest pancakes I have ever tasted. I would not stay anywhere else.” – Majella H, TripAdvisor, June 2013

Irish Hospital bar none!

We have just returned from a fabulous 3-night stay at Garnish House and would return again tomorrow! From the moment we walked in the door we were made welcome: tea, scones, cake and wonderful homemade fruit bread, all laid out and waiting – a lovely surprise. The rooms are comfortable with plenty of soft fluffy towels and comfy beds, allowing a peaceful night’s rest, after hectic days out. Breakfast? Not sure where to start – apart from, please make sure you are hungry, this is the best breakfast I have ever had, well cooked, good ingredients and beautifully presented. [Garnish] is only a ten minute walk from the main shopping area, with plenty of bars and pubs on the way should you feel the need for a pint of the Black Stuff. I would highly recommend the guesthouse: the hospitality, welcome and service is fantastic. – Izzy Hampshire, TripAdvisor, June 2013
