I had a very positive experience at Garnish House. On arrival. they offer you tea or coffee and some pastries; a lovely way to unwind after travel. The staff was helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. I found my room to be spacious, clean and perfect for my stay. Garnish House operates three buildings and I was not staying in the main one. My only criticism is there was some loud noise in the room above me at 2 am. As I was not in the main building, nothing was done.


This place was beyond what I expected. Very lovely. Room was comfy and the overall place was nice and relaxing. Little bit of a walk to the city centre and breakfast was extra 10€ each but very much worth it very yummy. Overall would recommend and would stay again.


Lovely place to stay. Not too far to walk to from the centre. Staff were all incredibly nice and helpful. If I was back in the area then I'd definitely stay here!

Great stay! Staff were incredibly welcoming. Upgraded to apartment with more space for same price. Excellent breakfast for €10. Would stay again.


We got a free upgrade to an appartment instead of our booked hotel room. the facilities were lovely and the staff was very friendly. Would definitely stay there again!


I seriously can't sing enough praises for the Garnish House in Cork! We were greeted with tea and scones at reception as well as an extremely warm welcome and help navigating the city. There are three buildings that belong to the B&B, so we were put in the only bedroom on the ground floor of the house across the road and it was exceptional. There was more than enough room for my three friends and I, a cozy living room, a fully functional kitchen and great wifi! Don't think twice before booking!!


we felt welcome. best breakfast ever. very stylisch and with great atmosphere: very tastful furniture, flowers in the rooms etc. courteous and friendly staff Overall, highly recommended


The Garnish House was magnificent. The staff was so lovely and welcoming. The room was very comfortable and clean. Complete with a TV, telephone, and windows that opened to the beautiful Cork streets. It was an easy 10 minute walk into the city -- perhaps not right downtown but the short walk was easy and safe for us three Americans. Would DEFINITELY stay here again.
