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

A great B&B. Cyril is very welcoming and will give you loads of advice on where to go an what to do in Cork. We got a room on the top floor with a great view over the river and train station. It was a fine big double room with a small ensuite. Breakfast was super. A great selection of... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for two nights. We were very surprised how great the location was, only 10 minutes walking from town. 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

Cyril's house is an old Victorian house, full of treasures, paintings, sculptures, carpets, tends, curtains, etc... We loved our room on the second floor, the bed was very comfy. The bathroom, although tiny, is quite OK, however could do with a refurbishment. Cyril is a very pleasant host, and breakfast was a delight. Last but not least, the place is... More

I can't say enough good things about Cyril the owner of Emerson B&B. He is a fountain of information, freindly, and comical to boot.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, his breakfasts were fabulous. Our room was spacious with a nice view of the river. His recommendations for touring Cork were superb. We hope to be able to visit again soon.

Emerson House is great. Cyril, our host, was most helpful. Sent very detailed and helpful information. In fact, we were going to keep our rental car and use it in Cork and drive to Dublin. He suggested in advance that we end the rental in Cork and take the bus to Dublin. This was great. We were able to drop... More

I've stayed at Emerson on a few occasions and find it consistently good. The previous review by ALAN C seems overly critical as the vast majority of other reviewers, including myself, find Cyril a very welcoming and an informative host. "Overfiriendly and quite intrusive" are not at all how most people would describe Cyril at all. Emerson House is an... More
