“Best stay in Ireland”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were just sorry that we had only 2 nights at this great place. Rooms were excellent and very clean. Location with the lake at the end of a nice and quiet garden is fantastic. Breakfast was rich and very well prepared. We also bought dinner twice, each with 3 delicious homemade courses and Irish Coffey for only 20 Euro. We asked if we could get Irish Stew - and typically for Breda´s whole attitude, we got it with a big smile. Breda was also very helpfull with good information on sight seeing in Macroom and Cork.
We can only recommend this place.

This is a great place to stay for a family. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by Breda. We were delighted to see that she had children and a daughter the age of our daughter. The children are great hosts just like Breda and Pat. The Fountain House is is a great location for exploring Cork and the surrounding areas. We enjoyed the city of Macroom. Breda served wonderful breakfasts for the two days we were there. We truly appreciated the laundry service she offered.

Great place to stay, we had 2 nights with Breda and her family. A really enjoyable, friendly place to be. One of our part was unwell while their, and she chilled out in very peaceful surroundings. Bred as local knowledge was great, and get advice for further on in our travels was great.

My second time at Fountain House in 8 months. What can I say, Breda and Pat are the perfect hosts, looking after your every need. The breakfasts are as gargantuan and varied as you want them and Breda will do you a cup of tea and a cake at any time of day.To top it all the fishing at the end of the garden is superb.

We had our second stay at Fountain House B&B last weekend. This is the BEST B&B you'll find so don't waste time searching for one, just book Fountain House. I came home to discover I'd lost my ring (I'd had it for over 30 years and was sorely disappointed). What a surprise I got when the owner of the B&B took the time and trouble to look up my telephone number and rang me to tell me she'd found it and she is very kindly going to post it to me next week. She sounded equally as delighted to be telling me she'd found it as I was to receive the news!! She is just so helpful and kind and nothing is any trouble for her. The beds are so comfy and cosy with electric blankets, the food is just perfect with a fantastic variety for breakfast, and the welcome is lovely. Even just to get away for a couple of nights for a wee break, this is the place to go to. Thank you Breda!!
