We stayed at Fernroyd House in the fall 2014 as part of a one month trip to Ireland. This has to be one of the nicest B&B's in terms of hospitality, location food and comfort we have ever stayed at in our travels throughout Europe and Canada. Tony and Averil are consummate hosts that truly go,above and beyond to make... More

This place is a hidden gem near University College Cork. It's close enough to walk into town but far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle of it. It's close to nearby attractions and feels safe walking at night. It's located on a small road just up the hill from the main drag so it's a quiet spot... More

Tony and Avril are just exceptional, they are what makes Fernroyd stand out from all the B&B choices in Cork. The breakfasts are just superb and you have at least 10 options from which to choose. Tony is helpful with options for food and places to see. Believe him when he says Blarney Castle is worth a visit, in spite... More

We recently stayed with Tony and Avril at Fernroyd House and had a marvellous stay! They were incredibly gracious and welcoming. Our rooms were very large (we had two rooms in the house up the street) and it was great to have access to the lounge. Lovely garden in the back too-too bad the weather wasn't warmer!! Tony gave us... More

The owners are wonderful! They go out of their way to make sure your stay is the best. They were so considerate to my 84 year old father-in-law. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is excellent. We stayed at 5 different B&Bs during our stay in Ireland; this one is outstanding!

When you read so many superlatives about somewhere you have to wonder "What is the catch"? Well I can honestly say there is none. We had such a lovely stay here we even booked in for the last night of our holiday just so we could end it on a high. We had two different rooms in the annex situated... More

Tony and Avril were very pleasant hosts. The breakfast was very good with french press coffee. Tony gave us good advice on where to visit in the local area. The room was nice, but not as posh as other B&B's we've stayed at.

Friendly host with comfortable and spacious accommodations the frig was a nice surprise! Perfect location to Cork center, easy walk even in the rain. Avril was full of dinner ideas and Tony was a great reference for happenings, such as the big Kerry-Cork game! Good breakfast and amazing scones.

Avril & Tony made us feel right at home. Offered us tea and scones when we arrived, our room was wonderful with a view of the garden. Great location and easy to walk to downtown Cork. Gave us some wonderful suggestions for dinner and pubs. Breakfast was superb!

Wow, what can I say that hasn't already been said? it's not the accommodation that makes this place so wonderful (although the rooms are perfectly comfortable, clean and well equipped - we especially appreciated the mini fridge) - it's Tony and Avril who make this place! They are wonderful hosts!! So warm, welcoming and helpful! They work really hard to... More
