Comment: beautifully decorated!
Impossible to fault. The food, service, decor, furnishings all second to none. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Liked it so much we stayed an extra night. Will definately return!
The exterior of the building is unassuming and not particularly impressive, but inside you find a lovely sitting room, beautiful art on all the walls, wonderfully appointed bedrooms, and the best breakfast in town. Warm, friendly owners too. We loved it.
Delightful in all respects
My wife and I based our decision to stay here on what other people had written in these reviews. I'm pleased to say we were'nt disappointed. I work for an airline and travel abroad several times a month staying in top quality hotels. In terms of value for money and outstanding service I have stayed in few better. The rooms were spotlessly clean, breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the owners. I can thoroughly recommend it.
Charming family-run hotel
I chose to stay at this hotel, having read the reviews on this site. I booked the room using their easy to use website reservation system. This is, without doubt, the best privately-run small hotel I have ever stayed in. It has a very inviting family home atmosphere. The building is decorated with a wide range of antiques and family heirlooms. Our room was very spacious, with excellent facilities and a large, disabled-person-accessible bathroom. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. The hotel is located in a peaceful inner suburb. It would only take the average person around 15 - 20 minutes to walk into the town centre. Taxis are cheap and readily available.
Great Place, Nice People
Add our names to the list of folks who love this place. My wife and I stayed several nights in May 2004 and found Earls Court to be exceptional. Beautiful antiques (a museum quality piece of Killarney furniture is in the lounge), spotless and beautifully furnished rooms. Emer and all of the staff are kind and helpful. The breakfast is wonderful!
We were impressed from the first moment we arrived. We traveled via Kinsale and Blarney and arrived around 2 PM without having had lunch. We asked the owner for recommendations for a quick lunch spot and she offered to make us sandwiches within 10 minutes (only cost 4 Euro per sandwich). Also had wonderful tea and sweet breads. ELegant accomodations in a quiet area within a 10-15 minute walk to center of town, outstanding breakfast, best beds, Huge bathroom, warm and caring owners that were MOST helpful with any needs. We would definitely recommend this guesthouse and would stay there again and again.
I stayed at Earls Court last August (2002) and it was absolutely wonderful. The owner is very gracious and helpful. He welcomed us with tea and a snack when we arrived. The room was lovely, spotless, with beautiful furniture and a fabulous view of the mountains. The hotel is full of antiques. It's a small hotel with a B&B feel. The breakfast is traditionally Irish and delicious. Highly recommended.
Gracious & Convenient
Spent a night at Earls Court in May2003. It is immaculate, convenient to all shopping and restaurants (walking distance) and run by very lovely people. Don't miss the apple surprise pancakes. We will surely return!
Excellent B & B
Beautiful, small ( 11 rooms) quiet B & B just a few minutes walk from town center. Wonderful hospitality. Great Irish breakfast....all at reasonable price. Highly recommend.
