Situated near University College Cork and Fitzgerald Park, the Redclyffe Guesthouse offers B&B rooms in a family-run Victorian building.
Single and double rooms are en-suite and include amenities such as satellite TV and tea and coffee making facilities. Other conveniences include phones and irons/boards. An extra bed or cot can be added to most rooms.
Facilities at the Redclyffe Guesthouse include a 24-hour front desk, newspapers and free Wi-Fi. Pets are not allowed at this property.
Breakfast is included and can be served in the room. Local dining spots include the Weir Rooms and No. 5 Fenn’s Quay.
The B&B is a 15-minute walk from the Cork City Gaol (Museum), within two miles of the Merchants Quay Shopping Centre and the English Market and a little under five miles from the CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory.
Guests are consistently pleased with the location of the Redclyffe Guesthouse, commenting on how easy it is to walk into the city centre (about ten minutes). If you would rather not walk, there's a bus stop outside the property offering direct services into the centre.
Friendly and attentive staff
Previous guests have rated the standard of service here as good, typically describing the owners and staff as friendly and approachable. The staff seems happy to help guests with local area information or, indeed, any issues/questions that may arise.
Even those guests who found fault with other areas of the property tend to enjoy breakfast here. You'll be able to choose one of three main dishes as well as help yourself to cereals, toast and drinks. The owner, Mic, seems intent on serving up a good brekkie and is keen to ensure guests are satisfied.
Housekeeping can be improved
Although some guests were perfectly satisfied with the quality of the room they were allocated, others raise concerns about the standard of housekeeping. Reported problems such as thick dust, rubbish bags in appropriate places and stained carpets indicate that the B&B could do much better.
In addition to cleanliness issues, it also seems that a lack of proper maintenance may present some problems. Guests report broken tiles in the bathrooms, missing light bulbs and damp on the walls.
Dated decor and furnishings
Previous guests have mentioned that they found this B&B quite dated. This may be acceptable if the surroundings were clean and well-maintained but as it doesn't seem like that is the case, the dated decor and furnishings is just another source of disappointment.
