Pond House was our favorite stay during our time in Ireland! Tom was a wonderful, funny host who made a great breakfast and great conversation. The location was perfect for going to Blarney Castle and the accommodations were very comfortable. We highly recommend this B&B and would definitely stay here again!

The Pond House is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are all delightful: filled with light and Irish warmth! Our host Tom Looney was gracious, warm, and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast chat. If we find ourselves returning to Ireland, we would definitely like to stay with Tom again.

Pond house was nice stay with a comfortable room and a short drive from Blarney castle. Tom was very friendly and cooked a great breakfast. The B&B is a little older than some of the others we stayed in, but was still a good stay. The river walk across the street is a great way to walk into town for a bite to eat.
