We really enjoyed our 2 night stay! Catherine & her husband were delightful, friendly & welcoming. Breakfast was excellent & she gave us recommendations of sites to see nearby. Restaurants for our evening meals were in walking distance. I would definitely stay here again!

Excellent welcome, comfortable bed, only at 4 km from the cork town centre, and very simple to go to the airport from the house by car.

We had a lovely 4 night-stay at River View. Liam and Catherine were very hospitable! The tips for restaurants and places to go and see were great. We would love to stay there again when in the area.

A very nice B&B with a good breakfast. However, the bedroom was too small for us caused by an extra single bed that we did not need and hampered our space. There is no river view. An unusual provision of a parking space involving a pub with a security gate. The host was professional, friendly and helpful and we would have given a much higher mark with more space. We stayed 2 nights.
