We were not impressed with this place at all. Out of all the B&Bs we stayed at (5 total) this was our least favorite. If you're looking for a nicer place with cute ambiance this is not it. Parking is horrible and the WiFi is basically non-existent.

Ita was a wonderful host and provided tea/coffee and scones upon our arrival. The Irish breakfast in the morning was delicious and very filling. She correctly advised us to go early to the Blarney Castle and beat the crowds! Ita was very sweet and accommodating. She recommended the Blair Inn for dinner and we enjoyed it tremendously especially in front of the fireplace!

Wonderful experience. The lack of parking and the wi-fi being down did dampen things a little, but the comfortable beds and bedding, privacy, delicious breakfast, and friendly directions to the places we wanted to go more than made up for it.

Ita was such a wonderful host! She greeted us with a warm welcome and offered us coffee and scones. When we got to her B&B and sat down with her, we mentioned how we were having issues with one of our tires on the rental and how we couldn't find someone to help us without leaving the car overnight. She recommended us to go out to eat at the lovey Blair Inn for dinner and that she would make some calls to see if she could find someone to help us with our tire. Her neighbor Tom was able to come over and look at the tire and fix it for us. We were able to pick it up from him the following day and keep us going on our journey. Ita was so wonderful and helpful and we could not thank her enough! I would highly recommend staying with her.

Wonderful experience! Ita greeted us with a warm welcome and even offered us coffee and Irish soda bread as soon as we arrived! She also gave us some maps and made it known that she would be happy to give us recommendations for things to do in the area. Thank you Ita! We would be happy to stay with you again :)
