This was our third stay at Emmerson House and we had a great time – you’re within walking distance of everything that goes on in Cork city. You’re staying in a very comfortable guest house with a view over the city and River Lee and its got a very pleasant feel of quaint Irish house with lots of interesting bits... More

My stay at Emerson House was completely comfortable. I slept in two different rooms during my stay - both comfortable and elegantly appointed. The bathrooms were clean and on the smaller side. 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

We had a lovely time staying at this guest house. The view over the city and river was beautiful. We had a very large double room with hard wood flooring and some rugs. 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

I really enjoyed my stay at the Emerson House ind Cork... My room was awesome and so big and lovely, the breakfast and the living room were amazing, too! But the best at the house is the housekeeper himself who does everything to make you feel comfortable and like eyeing at home! Every morning he signed me a map and... 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

Also the size of the room was a surprise, it was huge with an amazing view, exactly as the pictures shows. The host Cyril was extremelly helpful and friendly, he gave us great ideas for travels...

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.

Very odd establishment. Stayed here as bit of a last minute extension to my trip to Cork, I thought the rate was pretty good value for money & the location is just outside the city centre. The website gives the impression its quite a homely guest house, great views and clearly states all rooms are en-suite. However this is not... More
