We didn't get to stay there due to construction, but we were quickly taken to another B&B just up the road. Such lovely ladies that took care of us there.

Ita is a wonderful host and greeted us with tea and cake. This B&B is located in a beautiful area only 15 minutes from Blarney Castle and some nice pubs. The house is hard to find and the houses around it all look the same. Make sure you look for the little sign on the corner that points you to the correct driveway. My only real complaint is that the house is a little on the cold and musty side.

A lovely place to stay with a very welcoming hostess in a beautiful area of Ireland. I only wish we had more time to stay!
