My husband stayed here twice this year already, week in Feb and a week in April 2015. I found Tony and Avril on Trip advisor, and we are so happy that the reviews before were so true about their genuine hospitality, cleanliness, friendliness , comfort and just down right good people! On the last trip with our son, who immensely... More

Both Avril and Tony were extremely welcoming and helpful with recommendations and tips to make our short stay in Cork most enjoyable. We had room 4 upstairs, which looked out over the river towards the other side of Cork. It was nicely decorated and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and nicely cooked with the homemade scones a real treat. Good... More

We were visiting our son, who is attending UCC, and Fernroyd House is in an ideal location. But more importantly, hosts Avril and Tony are the epitomy of Irish hospitality. They were very helpful and accomodating and really made our stay memorable. Not only is their B&B bright, cheery and comfortable, they went out of their way to make us... More

If there is availability at the Fernroyd House, then your decision is made. My family and I stayed with Avril and Tony for three nights over the Easter holiday and the rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. From the moment that we walked in the door, Tony and Avril made us feel welcome and at home. From tea, coffee, and... More

Staying here is a delight. Tony and Avril are wonderful hosts who could not have made us feel more welcome. Very helpful with advice on where to eat and drink and the best local attractions. Comfortable rooms and fabulous breakfasts. They are Cork's best ambassadors. Its a short walk from the city centre but very close to the University of... More

I recently stayed at Fernroyd House B&B for a couple of days an couldn't have hoped for a warmer welcome or a more hospitable place. Avril and Tony are the loveliest hosts, and made me feel so welcome from the minute I arrived until I left, always on hand for directions, suggestions of places to visit, or a cup of... More

Extremely welcoming host/ess. They made us feel at home and gave us great tips on where to go/what to see. While we were there, we got to see how they treated everyone with the same level of courtesy and kindness. If you're in Cork, stay here. You will be happy you did.

Brilliant time!!... we arrived in a bit of a heap for a family funeral having spent 1hr 25 mins negotiating chaotic, calamitous & uniquely disenchanting french passport control at CDG (the entire airport "gendarmerie" was out for an hour-long, sausage-sandwich-break it seemed!) and almost missing our flight (plane waited 35 mins!..thank you Aer Lingus!), but when we got to fernroyd...

Tony and Avril are really fantastic hosts, the b+b is very clean, our room was comfortable and spacious (and so was the bathroom), location is handy (near UCC if you want to see the Ogham stones, Fitzgerald Park, Cork Jail, 15 minute walk from city centre) and breakfast is simply marvelous (the menu brings a lovely variety of options including...

This is undoubtedly the best B&B that i have stayed at. My girlfriend and I had the choice of staying in a Hotel, but elected to stay at a B&B as we wanted a more personal experience with the people and culture of Cork. We are so glad to have made that choice as our stay at the Fernroyd House... More
