Cyril was an excellent host, starting from when we made the booking, sending us detailed directions. (We didn't fully appreciate that courtesy until we spent an hour in Galway driving in circles trying to find the B&B we'd booked there.) We got the ground-floor room in the building next door (see photo of the bedroom), which included a large front/living/sitting...

My room was okay but the bathroom was very disappointing, I didn't feel comfortable having my shower there and had to use my friend's shower instead. Cleanliness is very important to me having travelled widely this was...

My girlfriend Alex and I stayed at the Emerson House for a few nights this past October and we loved it.

He greeted us, made sure we had everything we needed and answered the phone at all hours- which...

I've stayed at Emerson house a few times, and now it is my preferred lodging in Cork City. It is located just a short walk above the train station, and just below St.Luke's Cross. Access to the central City is a very easy walk down the hill. Just across the river is the bus station for access to those areas...
