We took a trip to Ireland for our honeymoon. We had some B&B vouchers and wanted to book at Number 48 in Cork. We emailed the owner to set up a booking since the central booking website was down. We asked him if he had any rooms available. He said he had rooms available. We confirmed by sending an email...

Based on mixed reviews we were curious about how our stay would be. Jerry was very friendly and the stay was exactly what we had thought. We got in to town late after being up all night flying, the bed was comfortable and we slept late. We missed breakfast time so we didn't have a chance to eat. Good place...

A few days making our way round Ireland by train in the summer of 2012 were spoiled by our stay here. We chose the place because it was handy for the ralway station. The host was friendly enough, the breakfast fine and the facilities basic, but okay for our needs. The most important thing I can say however is make...

We stayed here on Saturday, 9 June 2012, after a concert in the Marquee. The house itself doesn't look much from outside, and when you get inside it's not a lot of people's idea of a B & B. However, we found it ample, comfortable, clean and Jerry, the owner, is amazing! Nothing was too much trouble and when we...

I was expecting a wonderful host when I booked the Number Forty Eight. Unfortunately, Jerry wasn't friendly nor did he offer tips. He handed us a map, and said you are near here and this is what you can see. It seemed like we more more of a pain. The residence itself has slanty floors and steps. The location was...

Stayed here with my wife. We were in Ireland for 6 nights, each at a different hotel or B&B. The guy who runs this place, Jerry, was by far the nicest host. He'll tell you where to go, get you a discount on dinner, and give you a map to get around. Also, it's a short walk to the city...

This was my second stay at Jerry's Number 48. He is the best host, helpful, and a great person. I can put up with anything as long as I with good people.

Location was fantastic; breakfast was pretty good; the rooms were crooked... Going up the first flight of stairs was nothing because you were going with the curve of the house, going up the second, however, required more strength. Free wi-fi, always great. There's a mannequin across the street usually, so that helped.

Jerry completely looked after us over our five night stay, we were made to feel very welcome and NOTHING was too much trouble. The location was excellent, just down the road from the station, we certainly didn't hear any trains, and it was a pleasant walk into the city centre. Breakfasts are huge!!!!! Jerry made sure we were stuffed, we...

A friendly and helpful host but the accommodation was very very basic and the noise from the nearby railway station kept us awake all night. Poor quality sausages spoiled an otherwise good breakfast. At 90 Euros for the night we felt we had been stung.
