Nous avons eu un accueil chaleureux
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!
Mary is a perfect host. She gave us some help in choosing places to eat. The apartment was impeccable and nicely appointed. The view from the window is a lovely idyllic scene and you can see stars through the skylights! Fernridge is a little far from Kinsale to walk back at night, but Belgooly has a charming pub brimming with local talent and friendliness. Bring a few euro in coins to use the heater in the mornings or evenings. I look forward to returning!
I would 100% recommend this fantastic apartment! Conveniently located only a short 20 minute drive from cork city center (even in Friday evening traffic!) and 5 minutes from beautiful Kinsale, it is in a really great location to get away from it all in the quiet countryside.
Mary and her family were extremely welcoming and gave me some great advice on the local amenities. Mary had left me tea, coffee, fresh milk, bread and fruit on arrival which was lovely! And when I had a problem connecting to the internet she sorted it out straight away.
Mary and her family were very respectful of my privacy also and even left a marked out map on my car windshield in the morning which we had discussed the day before of a beautiful walking trail nearby.
The apartment seemed brand new, kept to a very high standard and very comfortable. I will definitely be back to Fernridge again!
Our stay at Fernridge could not have been better. The apartment is exceptionally comfortable, everything in it is truly spotless and there is great attention to detail. Mary has furnished the place to a very high standard and has ensured that everything you could need is there. It is a 10 minute drive (10€ taxi) to Kinsale and in my opinion a much higher standard than the vast majority of centrally located accommodation in the town. I would highly recommend staying in Fernridge - it's (website hidden) We ate in The Black Pig wine bar in Kinsale and it was terrific.
