Atmospheric, somewhat upscale B&B with good service. Excellent location – a quiet road, yet close to the city centre as well as to many attractions (the public museum, the prison, Lewis Glucksman’s gallery, the university campus). The only drawback is that the railway station is on the other side of the centre, so you have to trudge for a couple of kilometres (or to take a taxi) if arriving by train. The breakfast was good, too, though I’m not entirely sure if it was worth the extra 8 € it cost.
Patrick is one cool dude. We had a great stay in Cork and would stay in the Rose Lodge again.
The owner and the presonals were exquisite kind and attempt to the client need and request
Excellent place to stay in Cork. It's within walking distance to many of the restaurants and some of the attractions. It's a few KM from the bus station if you're using public transport to get there. The shower and the bed in the double room were great. Breakfast is NOT included which wasn't made clear to us either on Hostelworld or when checking in so be aware of that. It's 8 euro/pp which was a surprise when checking out. Otherwise incredible place, a bit pricier, but worth the money.
We were only in Cork for one night and we wish we could have stayed longer! The lounge area and the room was adorably decorated, just what you would expect from a B&B. The entire place was spotless and the staff was very warm and welcoming. The location is just a few minutes from the center of the city. If we ever go back to Cork we will definitely be staying here!
