The Blarney Stone Guesthouse is a beautifully decorated townhouse just on the outskirts of the main part of Cork City.  The place was so nice that our spirits were not even dampened by the two flights of stairs to our room.  The bathroom has been recently updated, and our room was moderately sized.  Breakfast was excellent with a great selection on the menu.  The staff were gracious, and even though we were there for only one night, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

There is a very small car park in front and more space behind the building.  The only problem we had was finding the place, but once we did, it was well worth it.
