    Staff were really welcoming. Triple rooms had enough space and amenities to be comfortable and get ready for a night out. Good location, it was quick walk to the town centre and was quiet despite being next to a main road. Quotes from the girls. "This bed is so comfy." "The afternoon tea on arrival was a delightful touch and they even made accommodation for the gluten challenged."

    My husband and I recently booked one night at the Garnish House during our honeymoon to Ireland. We were very impressed by the building's location, as well as by the staff's hospitality and friendliness. The beautiful spread of tea and treats upon arrival was a wonderful surprise, and our breakfast the next morning was incredible, too. We were also very grateful for the staff's recommendation of so many restaurants, pubs and attractions in the Cork area. We wish we could have stayed longer!

    Garnish house is so close to UCC and 10-15 minutes walk to city center. Found the room very clean and service was great as well. Staff is very friendly. And, the best part of Garnish is its breakfast, its just amazing, loved the breakfast there. Would definitely come back to this place when we visit Cork again.

    Superb BnB. Very near the university and walkable to everywhere else - ten minutes gets you to the start of the city centre. Free parking. Rooms clean and comfortable (with some of the softest linen known to man); jacuzzi bath a nice touch. Staff very friendly and knowledgable. Free afternoon tea on arrival is a nice touch if you're weary from your travels. It's a BnB rather than a hostel, so a party atmosphere it is not - but it's chilled out and great for a weekend away. Great breakfast!

    I visited Cork for New Year but unfortunately fell ill almost as soon as I landed. The hotel was very clean and comfortable when I wasn't feeling upto much else. After checking out the very friendly lady allowed me to sit in their living room with a fire on and even offered me a bed until my flight at 7pm. I would highly recommend this to visitors to Cork. It's only a ten minute walk into the centre along one straight road. I'll have to go back myself to see more of the City
