I stayed at this b&b in November for a research trip to UCC. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the room was very nice and clean. I have stayed at another b&b in the area and this one was much nicer/friendlier and is also more reasonably priced. Great location for UCC (right across the road from the gates)... More

Very nice and clean b&b. The people are kind and give a lot of information! Good breakfast and just 10 minute walk to the centre! Behind the bbs there is the fitzgerald park and opposite the UCC. Just few minutes walk there is the Finbarre's cathedral, and along the road to the centre you can find bars and restaurants.

The Blue Dolphin is a lovely B&B. The owner was very friendly and informative about the area and history of Cork, and the map provided was very helpful. The en-suite room was small but very clean and comfortable, it was certainly nice having a double bed in a single room. The breakfasts were excellent and we were served when requested,... More

This is a lovely B&B with very helpful proprieters. As a single woman travelling alone, I appreciate a secure environment. The house is very secure, and the staff are very helpful with maps and local knowledge. My ensuite room was very clean, bed was comfortable and the stay very affordable. I would strongly recommend this B&B to everyone.

Original review with two ammendments: I booked Blue Dolphin a couple of weeks ago. I told the proprietor that I had a meeting at 3pm today and that I would be claiming my stay on my expenses. When I arrived the owner was perfectly pleasant and I paid for my room. His receipt however did not have a VAT number... More

If your requirements are: a homely B&B, a spotlessly clean room, a comfortable bed, a delicious Irish breakfast and your car in a locked off-street car park with CCTV...........all at a great price........then Blue Dolphin is the place for you. However if its trimings you want....scones on arrival, fresh flowers in the bedroom and a twenty option breakfast then I... More

By chance we found a great place for us to stay in Cork when we exhibited in the UCC Glucksman Art Gallery. The car park at Blue Dolphin B&B just across from the art gallery was what we required for our van......a secure locked car park and it even had an extra bonus for us of CCTV. There was no... More
