While traveling in Ireland for 12 days with my family we were very fortunate to have selected the Ferncliff House for our stay in Cork. Breeda and Sean Higgins were absolutely wonderful hosts. We felt like their family the whole time. They were friendly and informative about things to do, places to eat, history of the area, etc. We had... More

Breeda is a very welcoming and smiling person although we arrived late at nigth. She has always the anecdote to be told you. Do not miss in particular the placard of the lounge : "if you want breakfast in bed, sleep in the kitchen !" The breakfast was delicious and bedroom was lovely and cute. We recommend this place without... More

Stayed one night when stopping in Cork City. Mary Higgins the owner is so friendly, helpful & attentive! A short walk downhill into the city from the b&b which is in a residential area. Our room on the 3rd floor was spacious & clean. Mary serves up a nice breakfast & helps you get on your way.

Nothing more to add to all positive reviews. We were enjoying a warm and friendly welcome. The breakfast was tasty and rich and the room very clean. We had a good and quiet sleep. Only one issue for improvement: the wi-fi is not really fast.

We stayed at the Ferncliff House in late June and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Our room was large, clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Breeda helped us with our travel plans and gave a great recommendation for dinner at the Ambassador just around the corner. The B&B is a 10 minute walk into the downtown area and we... More

I have been staying at the Ferncliff House B&B each summer for past 9 years, and continue to return because of Breeda and Shaun, the warm and friendly hosts. I would not think of staying anywhere else in Cork; it is truly like coming home each year. Not only is the B&B warm and cozy (even in early summer, Cork... More

Our very first experience staying at a B&B was here and it was awesome. Breeda was very friendly and helpful with many good ideas of what to see & do. Loved her suggestion of Dan Lawreys pub! Our attic room was large, quiet and had a great view of Cork. The breakfast was authentic as well.

Myself, my boyfriend and his parents stayed at this B&B in Sept for 2 nights. We absolutely love Breeda and her husband. They are so thoughtful, so nice, and really show an interest in there guests. Breeda was always at the front door when we arrived back from sightseeing or dinner asking how our day or evening was. She would... More

Breeda was the nicest host we had in the two weeks. The rooms are fine and clean and the brekfast was delicous! It's only ten minutes to walk to city centre and there is a nice pub two minutes away. If you won't stay here you'll miss something! @Breeda We baked your bread yesterday and it was delicous! Thanks so... More

Ms. Breeda was very nice. The house was quaint, the room was nice and clean. Our view from the bedroom window was amazing. Although we had the one room with a detached bathroom, the bathroom was very nice and updated. Ms. Breeda was very helpful in making sure we visited the sites that we wanted to visit while we were...
