Hosts Olive and Kieren are a charming couple and you get a sense you are a visitor into their home, not a guest into their B&B business. This pervaded they way they related with us the night we stayed. We were jet lagged and had unwittingly picked up a seemingly dodgy rental car at Cork airport. It felt like things were against us a bit until we arrived at Auburn House and were made very welcome and nothing was too much to bother about. They were helpful with eating out places and Kieren poured over a map of the city with us, pointing out all sorts of things that he thought might suit with us.
The room was well furnished and ensuite clean and functional. Brekky was champion and a great start to the day and the rest of our travels. I would go back there again.
Close to Cork CBD, easy to find from the airport, easy to link on to the national road from.
