Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • A delightful family who added great value to our visit from Australia. Mary and brendan were friendly and welcoming making our week-long stay near Kinsale was one of the highlights of our trip. The apartment was modern and spotlessly clean with a dedicated wi-fi that gave us uninterrupted access to the net. The setup of the facilities was closely explained and Mary was on available for any questions we had. All necessary facilities were on hand and worked seamlessly. The gardens were beautiful as was the view from our upper level apartment across the valley. We would highly recommend this apartment to discerning travellers.

  • This apartment was fantastic! It was clean, neat, well decorated, and all of the appliances were new and good quality. The hot water tap was an extremely nice feature. Well apportioned with towels, soap, and all of the little things someone might need -- Mary even left us a little fruit basket and bread with butter and jam for toast. So thoughtful! The apartment is out in the country, so it was quiet and relaxing; but it was close enough to Cork and Kinsale that we could easily venture out and explore (by car). Mary was a very sweet and knowledgeable host.

  • Mary and her husband could not have been more charming! Added bonus is that they were the right amount of completely helpful for short trip planning/restaurant advice and also gave us our space too. The apartment is lovely - the skylights make it warm and the view of green were lovely. Ideal location for quick trips in the area to Cobh, Clonakilty, Timoleague, Cork, etc.

  • Mary and her family could not have been welcoming and helpful. We felt at ease from the moment we arrived. The apartment was perfect for our requirements - it gave us a private, affordable, quiet and accessible space during a very busy weekend in Kinsale. While it is set in the grounds of the family's home, Mary has struck a great balance between making herself available if you need anything and leaving you to your own devices if you so wish. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay from start to finish and would highly recommend.

    The apartment itself is beautiful. It has been finished to a very high spec, has lovely views and is spacious. Regarding facilities Mary and her family have thought of everything, and then some. We particularly appreciated the selection of DVDs that you would be interested in watching, often it is just DVDs that were free in a newspaper. It is a very comfortable and welcoming space. You also get great value for money (the only extra cost is a coin machine for the heating - make sure to have a few €1 or €2 coins with you).

    We are very much looking forward to our next excuse to stay in and around Kinsale (or even Cork City, which is only 20 minutes away), when we will be making a point of staying at Fernridge. Thank you very much Mary and family.

  • Mary is a wonderful host, and we both felt that this was a little home away from home for us. We were greeted with scones, and found Mary and her family to be extremely friendly and helpful. The hospitality was kind and sincere.

  • The Fernridge apartment is absolutely fantastic - it's modern, clean and comfortable. It's situated in a beautiful area, with lovely walks through the countryside. It's very quiet and peaceful. It's also close to Kinsale, which is a wonderful little town. Mary was a wonderful host. Highly recommended!
