Host Tom made inappropriate sexual comments and hand gestures. Very rude man. property is poorly maintained. Yard overgrown and junk laying around. Cat sits at doorstep to trip a person. Sink had toothpaste left by prior guest.

We really enjoyed our stay with Thomas. He was an ideal host. The location was perfect for getting to Blarney Castle. Dinner was great at the pub just down the street. We would recommend to stay here for anyone visiting the area.

My daughter and I absolutely loved this place. Thomas Looney was a wonderful host and he provided a great atmosphere with his much appreciated humor. He's a great cook as well. The full Irish breakfast was delicious! He is conveniently located close to town and Blarney Castle. We would stay here again without a doubt.

This was hands down our favorite place to stay. Tom was amazing, it was like going to a fun family members house and a B&B. We stayed at a different place every night for 10 days and this had the best Irish breakfast of all the places. The house was picture perfect adorable and our room was huge, we even had sliding doors that went to a stone patio. Minuets from Blarney castle and Cork, we got to see a lot without having to drive a lot. The house was filled with beautiful aroma therapy dehumidifiers and salt lamps. Every room in the house was cuter than the next and the breakfast room was beautiful and full of light. We didn't smell any cigarette smoke and we arrived the day "Tammy" left so, not sure what she was talking about. Loved every second we were here and cant wait to visit again!
