I stayed at Emerson House in 2006. When booking to return to Cork for September 19-22, 2015 I immediately knew I wanted to stay here again. Host, Cyril is friendly, knowledgeable, sincere and prepares the most delicious full breakfast including fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, toasts, eggs, bacon, sausages and more. Our room was large, clean and a very comfortable bed.... More

Cyril was very warm and personable - and when he found out when I was going to Blarney Castle, offered me a ride since he was heading in... More

The room was well equipped and very bright because of the two large windows. The host Cyril was a lovely gent. He even dropped us at the... More

We found Cyril to be the most excellent of hosts! He was very helpful with information about the city and buses and places to eat and drink and is a fountain of local knowledge. We had a fantastic double room on the first floor with huge windows overlooking the city, bed was comfortable and lots of space and easy chairs.... More

We had a very pleasant experience staying here. Cyril was a fantastic host and our room was terrific (it's my understanding that we had the nicest/largest room in the place so I can't speak for other rooms, but ours was great!) The breakfasts were absolutely delicious -- we loved our big Irish breakfasts.
