“Lovely B&B- a great stay”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Travelling on a budget to Cork, we stayed at this lovely B&B. I must admit, I was a bit scepticale when we first arrived but was amazed by how big and spacious the rooms were.
Everything was very clean and comfortable.
As we were 2 girls and 1 guy, we were given a family room which were a room with twin beds and an ajoining room with a double bed which were just what we needed.
The owners are very friendly people and also very helpful. They were able to provide us with some recommendations of places to go, which made our trip even better.
Breakfast was just as good and more than enough to get us going.
The train station, bus station and city centre is within walking distance, so everything you need is right there.

Thank you again for an amazing stay!

Spent a night there with my mom. It was great. I forgot some clothes there, and the owners went through great effort to mail my belongings back to me. Great location and walking distance to all of Cork. Loved Breakfast. The woman was nice and genuine

We arrived to Kent House in early November for a 2 night stay, since they accepted the travel vouchers we had from B&B Ireland. I found a summary of the place in my Rough Guide Ireland book and the description seemed interesting enough to look into. It wrote that this was a Victorian era guesthouse with a warm, receptive couple in charge. This was a spot-on description. We did enjoy staying here because of how great John and Lorraine were. Yes, the house is old. Yes, some steps going up are slightly crooked. But really, how absurdly obsessive does a person have to be to take away from the rating of an establishment that's otherwise flawless? The bathroom was large, the room was large and the location was incredibly convenient! It was 10 minutes to the center of the city with a standard pace , and 5-7 minutes walking to Coburg/McCurtain Street for gems like Corner House pub and Isaacs Restaurant. Parking was plentiful and they provide a disc, and breakfast is delicious.

Every aspect of what makes a good B&B is there. In Cork, there's nowhere else I'd rather stay.

Kent House is not only ideally located to explore Cork city but the owners, Lorraine and John, open their home and make your stay really special. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and the morning breakfast delicious. Proximity to the town, train and bus station was a wonderful benefit. Looking forward to a return journey. Lorraine and John, thank you so much!
