"Charming B&B hostess"
My 2 young adult children and I spent 2 nights here upon arrival in Ireland. Cork is a great place to visit, and Lorraine was very helpful in suggestions and on how to book online for cheaper tour tickets and bus tickets. I would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely B&B, a real gem."
We spent just one night at The Kent House B&B and were most pleasantly surprised. Our room was spacious, clean and beautifully furnished with every attention to detail. We had a flight to catch the next morning and without having to ask breakfast was offered half an hour earlier than the the usual time. Also, despite being near the railway station it […] was very quiet at night. We would recommend this B&B as fantastic value for money Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"God morgenmad og perfekt beliggenhed"
Fremragende morgenmad efter eget valg, tilberedt af Lorraine, bare godt. Beliggenheden er lige ved stationen så bus 205 går direkte ind til centrum, eller man kan blot spadsere derind. Fri Wifi. God information om Cork fra John og Lorraine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great B&B Great Location Great Hosts"
This is an excellent B&B due to the very personal care of guests by Lorraine and John Dineen. The home is a historic building fitted out for modern travelers. The room set up had everything on our list: Tea and coffee setup, two chairs and a desk/table,in_room safe, plenty of bright lighting throughout, shelves and space for toiletries in the bathroom, even a mirror and makeup area apart from the sink. The bedding and linens are very good with fluffy white towels,extra pillows,a top sheet in addition to a light throw and super fluffy duvet on the comfy bed. There are hooks,hangers and a closet. No detail is lacking for organization. Lorraine cooks a very good full Irish breakfast including delicious home baked banana bread, soda bread and oatmeal biscuits. In addition to all of that, she provided full travel advice with bus schedules and tips, even booking and ticketing our train trip when we left. We were thoroughly pampered in this gem of a B&B.
"They lost my booking so arranged for me to stay at another B&B"
07/26/14 Paul_Wan_Tong Melbourne, Australia
I booked this B&B 9 months ago but when I arrived I was told that they had lost my booking, and because they were full, had arranged a room at another B&B. The owner was very apologetic but the replacement place was rated much lower in tripadvisor. This B&B is right on the N8, and if is anything like the replacement B&B, it would be very noisy ad difficult to sleep at night.
"Good Stay in Cork"
07/20/14 holmes49 California
Just back from two nights in Cork. The Kent House sits on a non-descript street just past the train station. Walking into town was not very scenic, but it did feel safe. We had a family room which turned out to be two connected rooms sharing one bathroom. It was a great set-up for us as it allowed our 22-year old daughter and her best friend privacy as well as their own room entrance, which was great when they stayed out late at the pubs. Our hosts were fabulous as was the breakfast. The owners even mailed my rain jacket home to me after I accidentally left it. The only downside is that Cork City itself is not all that exciting. The pubs and music are great, but daytime activities are not exactly of the knockout variety.
"Short stay in Cork ! Superb"
07/09/14 carlyGlasgow glasgow
Stayed here for a few nights with my partner , hospitality was fantastic , rooms were spacious and spotless, lovely cooked breakfast . The owners were very friendly and couldn't be more helpful, Two minute walk to the train station and a short walk to town. Took the train to cobh for the day well worth a visit. Would definitely stay here again. Dianne & David
"Absolutely WONDERFUL experience!"
07/08/14 Amanda L Saint Louis, Missouri
I didn't think I would be very impressed when my husband and I arrived to Kent House B&B. The area it sits in is simple, but safe! But my was I wrong! The host and hostess were incredible. Not that you need a large room while traveling, but the room was great and incredibly clean. It's an older house, but has just enough modern upgrades mixed with the old style of the building to make it perfect. The breakfast was delicious!!! And again, our hosts were delightful! My husband and I were traveling to Mizen Head one morning after breakfast (about an hour drive) and the hosts INSISTED we take some fruit along for the drive in case we got hungry. Kent House is also a short walk from all of the wonderful pubs in Cork so no need to drink and drive! Cork is a wonderful city, my favorite in all of Ireland!
"Recent Stay in Cork"
07/04/14 Gretchen G Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We stayed at the Kent House on a recent one week tour of Ireland. For a family of four, we had a very spacious room which was a welcome surprise. Our teenage boys had their own adjoining room. We loved the location, a healthy walk to downtown Cork restaurants for dinner. We stumbled on a pub with live music and dancing which we thoroughly enjoyed. The only downside to our stay was that the weather was very warm and we had to sleep with the windows open. It was quite noisy since they are located on a main street and near the train, so we didn't have a great sleep. However, breakfast in the morning was delicious and we headed down to Cobh for a very nice morning of site seeing.
"An oasis in a desert!"
07/03/14 Trevor679 Burton upon Trent, United Kingdom
My wife and I booked the Kent B&B several weeks ago after viewing several hotels and B&B's in Cork on Trip Advisor. we came to the conclusion that the Kent would be ideal for our needs as we were only in Cork for two nights. Although the area around the Kent is not very flattering to Cork it was in a very convenient location just yards from the rail station and a short walk into the city for the sights or to catch a bus at the bus station. We had a front room overlooking the road and surprisingly with the window closed we could hear no road noise at all. The bed in our room, Lorraine told us, was a new one and it gave us a really good nights sleep. The room was en suite of course but we did find the shower cubicle just a little small. Breakfast was very good with a full Irish breakfast to set me up for the day and a good choice of cereals and toast and spreads. Lorraine was an extremely pleasing hostess and helped us out over selecting an excursion for the day which was very successful. All in all a very good place to stay for visiting Cork and the South of Ireland with charming host and hostess; highly recommended by us.
"Helpful and charming hostess"
07/02/14 Denise R Bixby, Oklahoma
2 night stay with my 2 young adult kids. We had a triple room with a large bathroom. There was a nice vanity in the room with an outlet strip of 6 so we could all charge phones at once. Great breakfast selection prepared promptly and perfectly and my vegan daughter was very pleased with soy bacon and sausages. Lorraine was most helpful in suggestions for booking tours online for savings.

We had a wonderful stay in Cork with John and Lorraine. They were both very friendly and helpful in assisting us with directions and information about cork and the surrounding area. They were excellent hosts. The accommodation was also very good. The rooms were comfortable and were more than adequate for the two of us and our three daughters. We enjoyed the breakfasts and appreciated their fixing us breakfast that we could take with us when we had to get up early. Overall, we were very happy with our stay at Kent House and we would recommend this b&b to anyone staying in Cork.
"Comfortable and welcoming"
05/26/14 lunapuella Utrecht, The Netherlands
We absolutely loved our stay at Kent House. Although the B&B is every so slightly out of the city centre, Cork isn't that big, so everything was still within easy walking distance. And it was great having the train and bus stations nearby for trips outside the city. The room was very spacious, modern and comfortable - including the bathroom. Lorraine was very helpful and welcoming. We loved chatting with her during breakfast and she had several great tips that made our holiday even better. We hope we can return someday!
