We were greeted with some nice coffee and scones, making us immediately feel welcome! The house is on a perfect location, close to Blarney Castle and many other places but still very quiet place. Our room was very nicely decorated, clean and cosy. Can recommend this place for anyone looking for a good b&b in the area.

The room and grounds had the décor and feel of summer camp from our childhoods. Not uncomfortable, but also not very notable. "Tolerable" is the word that comes to mind. Our hostess was very welcoming and pleasant and guided us to a very nice pub with excellent service and food. I would not stay here again, but if your choices are limited (as ours were due to timing), its a perfectly ok place to stay for a night or two.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Knockawn Wood. Ita was very welcoming and eager to make our stay enjoyable. She made sure that we found a great place for dinner, and insured that we could find our way to our destinations easily. The home is nestled in a woodsy setting that was beautiful. We enjoyed sitting in the screened porch at night and enjoyed Ita's company. Breakfast was great. Highly recommend!

We arrived late and our host was very welcoming and accommodating. Sure, the room wasn't very large but that's not what I expect in a B and B. She recommended a very nice place to have dinner and when we got back we sat in the seating area until the light went out. Breakfast was very good and it was a nice experience for our first B and B in Ireland.

We checked into the B&B and was shown to our room.....It was damp and musty.....the grounds and house didn’t look like the pictures.....the internet didn’t work....the common area was an enclosed front porch that wasn’t very nice or very clean.....we gave her our voucher but left and paid for a room in a different place that night. The information about the Knockawn Wood on your website was very misleading. I think your tourist board rating was very deceiving as well.
