Cons: Nothing
Location: Close to Blarney Castle. Bus stop at the door to Cork.

comfy, homely hotel

Nice hotel and pub with warm, welcoming rooms. Bathroom a little small but fine for a short stay. Great Irish stew for dinner at the pub and a generous and well-cooked breakfast was included. All-round good experience.
