    Thank you for your kind review of Garnish House, which I read with pleasure. Delighted to hear that the freshly baked scones persuaded you to try to the famous Garnish House -- guests who book room-only often regret it when they see the breakfast menu!...More

    Garnish House was a lovely place to stay. It was however a little way out of town. Without a car it is a 30 minute walk into the Cork CBD. We stayed in a building across the road from the main reception and breakfast hall....More

    We paid a room only rate. The full breakfast was an additional 10€ and for that you could eat a massive meal whereas I had just cereal (plus fruit, yogurt etc on it), fruit juice, coffee and toast for 6€.
