I stayed at Surmount in April this year. It’s a brilliantly located B&B - only ten minutes walk to the very centre of Cork. The house is really delightful - the owners have a beautiful and impressive array of art and the rooms are all big, spacious and immaculately clean. Very friendly hosts, who are willing to impart all their...

Centrally located and wonderful hospitality. Good beds which allowed me the best night's sleep I've had this year. Great access for Cork's main attractions and walkable to local amenities. Highly recommended and would do repeat booking!

As a student studying abroad in France, I ventured over to Cork City with my girlfriend for three nights. This was truly a nice taste of home. The room was very big and nice, as were the breakfasts each night. I looked forward to getting up each morning for them (and it beats a pastry every AM like here in...

My husband and I could not have been happier with the accommodations. We had been traveling for multiple days in multiple cities, and the friendly and wonderful atmosphere of the Sunmount was one of those rare experiences when both the city and the room compliment each other. We had no complaints. The cooking was excellent. I am a vegetarian, and...

A pretty garden leads up to a handsome town-house with views over Cork. Inside is a lovely hall full of paintings and interesting ornaments. Lots of character. The beautiful cat & the very friendly hosts will make you feel instantly at home. Comfy carpets & warm, stripped-wooden furniture throughout the rooms is understated and relaxing. You'll be right in the...

It was our first time in Ireland. We googled Sunmount B&B and decided to pick the place simply because the e-mail from owners was prompt, nice and welcome giving all the details we need. The smell of freshly baked bread and the warmth of Jane and Paddy's place is unforgetable. Nice breakfast (my first experience with wheetabix!) and great time...

Eager to experience some of Cork's reputed warmth of character in the midst of a chilly Winter, a friend and I stayed at Sunmount for a week in early December. From the moment we were welcomed into their homely yet artistically decorated house, hosts Jane and Paddy Howe couldn't have been more hospitable. We were treated to delicious freshly baked...

We found this B&B after a lot of driving around. Cork is a lovely place, but a lot of its streets do not seem to have road names posted on them. In future, we would ask a B&B owner what quadrant of Cork they were in. We would use Mapquest tools in the future, too. We finally arrived at Sunmount...

I stayed at the cosy B & B in 2005 and thought the owners were really hospitable. They were on hand to cook a mean fry up and point out the best that Cork has to offer. It's just a few minutes walk to the town centre and the rooms are light, clean and airy. I'd definately go back for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small quiet family run B&B set on a hill with nice views and a pretty garden, but only a 10-minute walk to the city centre, bus and train stations. The terraced house is approximately 160 years old and is furnished with some interesting antique items and paintings. Breakfast is standard full Irish, with homemade brown bread, jams & marmalade. The guests all sit around a table where they can socialise and swap holiday gossip. ... more   less
