Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The most striking thing about this establishment is the art work on display. Amazing paintings and sculptures everywhere and also stuffed animals (not taxidermist but children's toys) a zebra peeking out from under the stairs for example. Our room was rather small as was the bathroom but had everything we needed. the breakfast, at 5 euros, was amazing value - fruit, yoghurt, bread, toast, croissants, cheese, ham, smoked salmon and jam. The other plus was the staff, everyone was so helpful and friendly. A bit of a walk into town but there is a bus stop directly opposite the house. Free parking at the front of the house.

What a little gem! From the moment you walk through the front door this place is an absolute delight. It’s hard to know where to start. The walls are teeming with a very eclectic selection of art work while a cosy sitting room is an invitation to sit and relax with tea/coffee/biscuits/fruit and lots of books! Some quirky jungle dwellers are dotted throughout the foyer, dining and sitting rooms - all of which add to the welcoming atmosphere. Our room was spacious with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Beautiful en-suite and everything absolutely spotlessly clean. Well done to housekeeping. Tea/coffee making facilities were an added bonus though not really necessary as they are available in the sitting room. Parking was on site, and it was just a short stroll to Fitzgerald Park ( more great coffee there!). Directly across the road you can access the river walk which takes you into the city. Alternatively a ten minute walk on the Mardyke/ Western Road brings you into the heart of Cork. Continental breakfast is available for an extra €5 and makes a perfect start to a day exploring Cork. This was our first time staying in Rose Lodge but we will definitely be back.

Whenever I visit Cork, the Rose Lodge Guesthouse is my first choice to stay. The staff work hard there to keep it spotless. The beds are wonderful, and nice to sleep in. Breakfast is great, as is the coffee. From the Guesthouse it's a short walk to Cork city centre, and there is a bus stop near the Rose Lodge. But, the best part about the Rose Lodge Guesthouse is the staff. To a guest entering they are greeted by very friendly, and nice people. They make the place a very good choice to stay in whilst in Cork!

Great little guest house. Bit out of city centre but only a few euros in taxi and walkable if feeling energetic. Lovely room. The art collection alone is worth a visit. Every time you look you see another piece of art you missed. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Great breakfast as well. We were only there for a night but would definitely go back.

My son and I had a really comfortable stay. Great recommendation for eating out (The Oliver Plunkett). Really tasty breakfast and beautifully presented. Easy parking. Good base for Blarney Castle and starting point for tour of south west. Our first night of our trip - really appreciated the warm welcome, many thanks!

We stayed in this lovely chilled and interesting guest house for four nights as a family group of nine. Warm welcoming and super service. Lovely staff and a superb freshly cooked breakfast at a bargain price. Everywhere you looked was something fascinating, great artworks everywhere, spotless tableware and immaculate bed linen. I really did consider trying to get the enormous sparkly elephant onto the plane home but don’t think Ryanair would go for it. Thank you so much all of you for making us so welcome. We will return!
