Rooms in this older home were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic and Tom was a great host who took good care of us. You could not ask for a warmer welcome! Be aware the property has outside cats. My kids LOVED this fact; my father who is highly allergic to cats did not. There is smoking in and around the property, which was not an issue for my husband, but did aggravate my asthma some.

Had a lovely stay here. Was just 5 minutes from Blarney Castle and a short drive into Cork. Mr. Looney was a gracious host and an excellent breakfast cook. Offered lots of great conversation and we felt very welcome in his home. Would've loved to have a pint with him and listen to a few stories!

This was the perfect place to wrap up my trip. The Host was incredible, very friendly, full of reccomdations, and made me feel instantly at home. The location couldn't be better, as the Blarney Castle, great pubs, and lots of shopping are all a short walk away. My room was wonderful and serene. Would definitely stay again!

An older home set just outside of Blarney we stayed one night at Pond House. The room was spacious, clean and warm. Even though the bathroom was small it accommodated our needs nicely. Thomas was very attentive and made us feel welcome.
