Scene

A charming, historic B&B with a friendly atmosphere

Fernroyd House is a quaint B&B housed in a traditional Edwardian building with a screened gallery, airy spaces with wooden or tiled floors, and steep carpeted stairs. The vibe here is friendly and laid-back. Hosts Avril and Tony -- along with house dogs Chip and Mollie -- greet guests with freshly baked scones and a long list of recommendations for those looking to explore the town. Right off the lobby is the guest lounge, which opens onto a lovely little garden with tons of plants, and a couple of tables and chairs. Decor in the lounge is contemporary, with dark couches, and blonde wood furniture, but the rest of the B&B has more traditional and homey style.

Location

A 10-minute walk from the city center

The property is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in a residential neighborhood a short walk from the city center, and right next door to the University College of Cork and Honan Chapel. Other major attractions, including the English Market, St Fin Barre’s Cathedral, Shandon Bells Tower and Crawford Gallery are all within a 10- to 20-minute walk from the hotel. Fota Wildlife Park can be reached by car in 20 minutes. There is a bus stop right outside the property.

Rooms

Homey rooms with unique details -- but most have tube TVs

Fernroyd House has eight rooms spread throughout two buildings -- one of which is a couple of doors down from the main one -- and three room types: Double Rooms with a double or a queen bed; Twin Rooms, featuring two twins, and Family Rooms, equipped with one double and a twin. They all have homey decor, and unique details, such as window seats, and colorful accent walls. Free Wi-Fi, empty mini-fridges and free tea and coffee are all standard amenities. However, some rooms are small, and most have tube TVs. Cots are available upon request.

Features

A charming breakfast room; a guest lounge, and a lovely yard

The main building is surrounded by a lovely, quiet garden where guests can mingle or relax after a day of sightseeing. There are a couple of tables with chairs and umbrellas, and a variety of plants and flowers. Adjacent to the garden, there is a spacious lounge, complete with couches, a flat-screen TV, a microwave, and a selection of teas.

Every morning, hosts Tony and Avril serve a hearty, homemade breakfast with scones and other baked goods, as well as vegetarian options. Irish breakfast is also available. The breakfast room is probably the most charming space in the property. It features a couple of fireplaces, wooden floors, homey decor, and large windows.

Free Wi-Fi and free parking are also available.
