Absolutely Top Notch
Only minutes from Blarney Castle, I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Upon arrival, our delightful host upgraded us to the Regal Suite, and it is indeed regal. It absolutely beautiful, huge, filled with antiques, an incredibly comfortable four poster bed, and an amazing hot tub for two. You truly feel like royalty in this suite. Many thoughtful touches are provided throughout. The grounds are gorgeous, and the living room, drawing room are decorated to be fit for Interior Digest magazine. What a special experience that we will never forget. Thank you.
Love this place
This place and the grounds outside are amazing. I've stayed in a ton of BnBs and Maranatha is in my top 5, especially for the price I paid. I came with a group of friends and we were able to get the rooms with the attached balcony which we totally took advantage of. I liked the decor, it had personality and prefer it to some of the sterilized hospital feel of some other BnBs. Our hosts were very nice and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
FIT FOR ROYALTY
What a special place to stay! Only minutes away from Blarney Castle and set in such lovely grounds. Olwen, the hostess and owner, is one of a kind. We stayed in the Regal Suite and I highly recommend booking this room. It's the most expensive room at the B&B but at only 130 Euros a night it's a steal! The breakfast is extensive and delicious. The bed was so comfortable and I absolutely loved the antique decor in the house and rooms. The room was fitted with a tea kettle and a variety of teas and biscuits. Loved it! Thanks for a special stay.
King/Queen for a day!
What a beautiful, beautiful inn. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. The grounds are gorgeous and the rooms are something to see. Alwyn is a lovely host that sincerely loves sharing her family home with her guests. You can tell that she is genuine in personality and in her attentiveness. The beautiful breakfast area was just fantastic! What a touch with decor and the food was fresh, tasty, and had great presentation. I will visit this B&B again! Cheers.
I echo all the sentiments of the other reviews. Stayed with my Mother for her 80th Birthday, little did I know how special this place was - my Mother and I were overwhelmed by the fantastic room, which was spotless, the wonderful and very accommodating host and the great Breakfast. Would go back in a heart beat.
