For our first night of our month long stay in Ireland my husband and I stayed at Crawford House. We found it nice and clean and very quiet. I wish it had been a little bit closer to city center but it was still convenient to walk everywhere. If you are looking for the grandma and grandpa style B & B where they sit with you and drink tea, this isn't the place.

Close to Cork city center, university and many restaurants, shopping, etc. The university is just down the street & gorgeous. Best of all close to Blarney Castle. Therefore, the Blarney Castle. Ireland is filled with beautiful castles, grounds and countryside. The people are as friendly as any in the world. The room was sparkling clean and comfortable and the staff were great.

It was fine for a night and it has everything you need. However, it was very noisy even though it was a little outside the city. There's a field behind the hotel where there was a party all night long. In addition, someone tried to enter our room in the middle of the night - probably a simple drunken mistake but troublesome nonetheless.

This guesthouse is in serious need of attention. We had room 7 and the front panel of the bathtub was falling off and water went everywhere. There is no one at the front desk as you have to go to the guesthouse next door if you need help. Our room faced the main road which was so noisy with traffic all afternoon and all night. For 95 euros you can do much better than this and no breakfast is included. Would not,recommend this at all.

What a lovely b&b so close to town. Everyone was super friendly and even asked us if we wanted to take some scones for our drive back to Dublin!!! Now that is amazing customer service. Our room was clean, spacious and the bathroom was to die for. The bathtub was humongous with great water pressure The house is refurbished with just the right amount of new amenities and old charm. I would highly recommend.

Sorry, but I've only now got round to reviewing this excellent B&B. Just opposite the University, Crawford is also on a quick, direct bus-route into this lovely city. The room was big, airy and well-maintained, and much better than a single-night-stay warranted. Despite being on a main road, there was little noise and we slept well in a comfortable and snug bed. The Irish breakfast was outstanding and the staff welcoming and friendly (I love being complimented on my "Oxford accent"). Very, very good!

The longest check in ever, basic room, we saw the spa bath but alas it's for show, very small house sign lucky to spot as no number given. Poor Wifi really awful and we could have done with it. But it's a kinda soulless place, no staff are here as linked to another house nearby. Car park ok well off road. We opted for an early on road start so did not try breakfast. Shop around there is much better.

The hotel is reasonably priced within a fifteen minute walk from town centre. Rooms are nice and comfortable, but could do with a touch of redecoration. Overall a good stay for the money and within walking distance of most local shopping, bars etc.

I stayed for 2 nights. But the room given to me was really noisy. Noise of the traffic was continuous that not allowed me to sleep at all. All the windows were closed.. I mentioned this to staff around 4pm that room is very noisy. He said hotel is fully booked he can't moved me. Which is understandable. But then again I asked how bad this is at night time. He said oh night it's okay. You are not going to hear any noise. But night time was even worst. Location wise this place is brilliant.. Heating doest worked and room were way to cold but I Paid 170 euro and for sure this doesn't worth it. Over priced..

Although recommended by Lonely Planet, this B&B has major issues. The very cramped , tiny rooms have floors that slope excessively, We had to put the pillows at the foot of the bed to keep our blood from rushing to our heads. The spa baths were no longer operational due to "water getting on the floor". The manager told me sorry but that's just the way it is. Over priced and run down. Poor service from the staff.
