“Wonderful Visit!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We just returned from a 2 day visit athis beautiful B&B. Tony and Avril made us feel so welcome as soon as we arrived with tea and biscuits. Avril helped us make great choices for dinner as well as places to see some good Irish music. Tny was kind enough to even lend his GPS when we went down to Kinsale. The scones were wonderful as was all the food were were served. Thank you for a wonderful time!

We arrived a bit early, but Tony and Avril welcomed us as one would family. The room is nice, but these folk make the place like home. It is a short walk to city center down the river...a delightful experience even on a cold day. The university campus...next door...is beautiful, too. So, the location is quiet and yet not far all you might want to see in Cork. Again, it is all about the friendly hosts...and being #1.

Tony and Avril
We had the best time at your B and B. You made us feel at home with the best service ever. My inlaws had never been to a B and B and are now spoiled (in their words). What a nice treat when your daughter made the scones and cream cakes as we arrived in Cork. Tony was a gentleman walking my mother in law (with her new hip) to the Inn for breakfast in the rain. The breakfast was wonderful and Irish in nature. We highly recommend anyone to stay at the Fernroyd House in Cork!

We arrived on a Sunday morning after a very early a.m. flight. All we had intended was to drop off our luggage from the taxi, but Avril insisted on serving us a hot drink and scones. After a lovely chat with her, we ventured out into Cork's business center with information about all the sights on a walking tour, as well as restaurants and pubs. When we returned Tony gave tips about how to travel outside the immediate area to the seaside area and Blarney Castle. The weather cooperated and we traveled seamlessly with those suggestions. On the third day, Tony helped us arrange for a rental car which we used to travel around Counties Cork and Kerry seeing most of the major sights. Our hosts always were such great friends, checking on us and feeding us wonderful gourmet breakfasts. We will remember their kindness for many years to come.

Room Tip: All of the rooms at this B & B appear to be quiet and nicely decorated. The family room is very...

Tony was holding the fort when we visited but he did the job of two with great recommendations for the city (you literally will not need a guide book or map) and a top breakfast (booze on your porridge! bring it on!!) - the rooms weer clean bright and just what we needed as a great base for the city. Long may he continue - a genuinely friendly and engaging welcome - thank you so much.

Fernroyd House is a very pleasant place to stay in Cork. Close to the city centre and a short taxi ride from the airport. We arrived early and Tony and Avril welcomed us with tea and scones whilst our rooms were prepared. Tony was very helpful with directions and recommendations for restaurants and places to see.He was also happy to ring for taxis for us. The breakfasts were excellent and included more deliciious home made scones. The annexe is very well equipped and self-contained. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a relaxing stay.

Room Tip: If travelling with friends, would suggest asking for the annexe as the self-contained lounge is an e...

Fernroyd House was our home away from home during our 2 week visit to Ireland and London. We checked in and out three times and stayed in three different guest rooms. All the rooms were beautiful, absolutely spotless, warm, with ensuite bathrooms with fabulous showers. The breakfasts were delicious! Their menu has something to please everyone, we loved the scones and porridge! Wi-Fi, tea in the room, Ireland books to borrow, lovely back garden, and the quiet neighborhood were the perfect place to rest and relax. They are located within easy walking distance of UCC, Fitzgerald Park, The Cork Gaol, Shandon, The English Market, local shops, and The Franciscan Well just to name a few fun places to visit in Cork. Tony and Avril are wonderful hosts, we look forward to our next stay at Fernroyd House.
