Avril and Tony were fantastic hosts and provided us with delicious breakfasts every morning, accompanied with some great conversation and reccommendations for Cork and the wider region. Rooms were well furnished, beds comfy and overall a great stay. Would reccommend and we will use again for... More

Several,things stand out here, First, we appreciated that they furnished washcloths , something that most Eurpoean B&B's do not.,Next, the freshly baked scones each AM for breakfast were so welcomed. Also, upon our arrival, the husband immediately sat me and my husband down and with no prompting, acted as a travel agent , showing us all the landmarks in Cork... More

Our family of four adults stayed May 2 & 3, 2015 with Avril and Tony. What gracious hosts - knowledgeable, friendly, and great cooks. They immediately became our friends! Great suggestions for places to visit and restaurants to try. We even bumped into Avril at one restaurant with her mom, sister, and friend! The rooms were clean and most comfortable... More

We were so pleased with the Fernroyd House that we kept coming back, using it as our base of operations for our three-week visit to south western Ireland. We picked the location to be close to University College Cork (UCC), where our daughter was doing a semester abroad. It was perfect - basically across the street from UCC, walking distance... More

We stayed for three nights in April while touring the area. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Tony and Avril, they make you feel welcome and comfortable immediately. Our room was very comfortable and I fell asleep every night as soon as I turned out the light. Breakfasts were always lovely and plentiful. There were so many choices and... More

Tony and Avril greeted us warmly on arrival and showed us to our room. They were excellent hosts. The room was comfortable, if a little crowded with furniture. A good sleep was had each night. The bathroom was satisfactory, if a little dark. Breakfast bar was plentiful with fruit, yogurt, cereal. Full Irish breakfast was available with black and white... More

We were greeted by Avril and warm scones with tea and coffee. A tour of the place down the way, where we had our room and full use of the common area in the house. A great view of the garden at the back of the home. Comfortable bed, great hosts with Avril and Tony. Wished we were there longer... More

We were greeted warmly by an elderly person and showed us to our room. This place is so close to city center. The evening was pleasant enough for us to stroll around the city and find a restaurant. The next morning we meet Tony and Avril at breakfast. Such warm people! The scones were the best we had during our... More

Stayed there recently. Couldn't recommend a better place to stay. Hotels couldn't compete with quality of accommodation and choice of breakfast. All quality food, no cheap inferior produce. Hosts were superb! Dogs a pleasure to have around. Thanks April and Tony. Will be back!
