I called to make a booking for myself and a friend for a Saturday night. A vacancy came up due to a cancellation which I accepted. A while later I got a text to say that someone else had since rung and was going to stay two nights so my booking was cancelled (I was just staying one night). I... More

We greatly enjoyed our recent 4-night stay at Emerson House. Breakfasts are huge and delicious. Free wi-fi is very reliable. Cyril, the owner, is welcoming and helpful - but never intrusively so. The b&b is a short 10-minute walk from the city center. If we're in Cork again, we would love to return to Emerson House.

This is the best B&B in Cork city, in a great location close to the train station with amazing views. The rooms are very spacious and attractively furnished. The bed and pillows are extra comfortable. The breakfast is superb. Not to forget the warmth, attention to detail and wonderful customer care provided by the owner Cyril. Emerson House is a... More

I stayed at Emerson House in 2006. When booking to return to Cork for September 19-22, 2015 I immediately knew I wanted to stay here again. Host, Cyril is friendly, knowledgeable, sincere and prepares the most delicious full breakfast including fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, toasts, eggs, bacon, sausages and more. Our room was large, clean and a very comfortable bed.... More

You’re staying in a very comfortable guest house with a view over the city and River Lee and its got a very pleasant feel of quaint Irish house with lots of interesting bits... More

My stay at Emerson House was completely comfortable. I slept in two different rooms during my stay - both comfortable and elegantly appointed. The bathrooms were clean and on the smaller side. Cyril was very warm and personable - and when he found out when I was going to Blarney Castle, offered me a ride since he was heading in... More

We had a lovely time staying at this guest house. The view over the city and river was beautiful. We had a very large double room with hard wood flooring and some rugs. The room was well equipped and very bright because of the two large windows. The host Cyril was a lovely gent. He even dropped us at the... More

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
