We stayed here for two nights. The location was nice because it can be very difficult to find parking in Cork. The owners were wonderful. They were very helpful in giving advice for the area and were very gracious hosts. Their Westie named Chip was a wonderful co-host😊.

My family of six stayed at Fernroyd House last week in Cork. Amazing! The rooms were spotless and the beds super comfortable. Avril and Tony were such gracious hosts and the breakfast was everyone's favorite of all Ireland stops. The scones were to die for. Can recommend this B&B without hesitation. 100% satisfied. Thanks Avril and Tony!

We stayed with Tony & Avril this June. They were extremely helpful and helped us find great things to do during our stay. We had 2 rooms and they were both AMAZING! The house was really nice. Breakfast was fabulous! I highly recommend them to anyone going to Cork!

Tony and his family are wonderful, friendly people. Tony went out of his way to provide us with recommendations on where we could go, what we could see and where we could eat. My only negative on the place is that the bed was a double. I am 188 cm and the bed was a little small for us. Everything... More

I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely B&B. Tony and Avril were so warm and welcoming. Tony gave us some great recommendations for sightseeing (don't miss visiting the absolutely beautiful University of Cork campus!) as well as some good options for dining. (Oliver Plunkett's Pub was very good.) The homemade scones served at breakfast were absolutely the best ones... More

What a lovely couple running this B&B. A waterfall of tips, sincere interest in their guests and wonderfull breakfast. Location is in a quiet part of Cork, on a walking distance to the city center. University grounds, a nice park and The Franciscan Well are within 1 km. We were not staying in their own house , but in an... More

It's easy to see why this place is ranked #1. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay. Avril greeted us upon arrival and gave us some good recommendations of what to do for our short stay. Our room was in the annex building and was very nice. Breakfast was sooo good, especially the scones! We enjoyed chatting with Tony... More

We had a wonderful stay here. The owners were so friendly, amazingly helpful and always accessible. They were on top of everything we needed. They gave a great suggestion to see a band play, that wasn't the typical touristy thing to do. They made reservations for us for dinner. They even gave us heads up that we would have trouble...
