Margaret's Bed and Breakfast, is situated off a quiet avenue 5 minutes walk from the centre of Fermoy town and the beautiful river Blackwater.

History of Fermoy: http://(email hidden)/fermoy/history.htm
It is only a short, 25 minute drive (via motorway) to the centre of Cork City and a 30 minute drive to the beaches and coastline of County Cork.
It is ideally located only minutes from the main Cork to Dublin Motorway and, as such, is an excellent holiday location or rest point.
The B&B has Wifi and ample car parking and your host Margaret is super friendly and can provide you with tourist information about the local area.
Staying with Margaret at her beautiful BnB exceeded any expectations I could ever have about the ideal host. She is one of the most lovely, generous people I've come across in a long time. Her house and the room I stayed in were exceptional. Very cosy, warm and bright. The breakfasts Margaret cooked were fantastic also. When I arrived in Fermoy I told Margaret that I was tracking down some of my ancestral history in Fermoy and she helped me so much in my endeavours, we even managed to find and visit the house my ancestors lived in. This was something that really meant a lot to me and likely would never have come about if not for Margaret's kindness and generosity. She is a wonderful conversationalist and really does run a very impressive bed and breakfast that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Thanks heaps again Margaret.
We LOVED staying at Margaret's Bed and Breakfast!!! She had a cute, charming place and it was in a great location for us!
The beds were super comfy and the room was HUGE!! We had tons of space-- also the bathroom was spacious as well. We had tons of space to spread out all to ourselves.
Margaret usually cooks a large breakfast in the morning, but we had to leave very early in AM-- so instead she set out plenty of food for us to help ourselves and to eat quickly on our way out the door.
She is a warm, accommodating host! We really enjoyed chatting with her and she has tons of fun stories. Also, she was quick to make lots of great recommendations on restaurants and pubs with live music. She even drove us to a dinner spot herself because she was worried we might have trouble finding it.
I HIGHLY recommend this bed and breakfast! We had a LOVELY stay and everything was absolutely perfect!!!!
Margaret was on holiday during our booked time and did not make proper arrangements with us or her fill-in hosts for our stay. We had a difficult time finding the B&B since the address said Cork, but the B&B is in Fermoy. We called many times, but received no answer.
That said, Margaret's daughter Lorraine was extremely helpful with breakfast, correcting the internet problems, and giving sightseeing recommendations.
The rooms were a good size, particularly the triple/quadruple room, and good accommodations were made for our baby. Cleanliness could be much improved and the building seems to be showing its age.
Overall, this was not a bad place to stay, but some of the other B&Bs we stayed at were much better.
Margaret is a lovely lady who went out of her way to make my stay enjoyable . Lovely old and historic building . Very welcoming place to stay . I look forward to staying with Margaret again.
Margaret was a wonderful host! She picked us up from where our bus dropped us off in Fermoy and took us on a beautiful drive through the city and showed us some of her favorite spots. She offered to drive us around if needed and was intent on meeting our every need. The room that we stayed in was gorgeous and comfortable - just what we needed after a hectic weekend. Margaret was always available for help and guidance during our stay. She had breakfast ready for us early in the morning and even drove us back to Cork to catch our bus to Dublin. We wish we could've spent more time at Margaret's because she was such a lovely host! I would definitely recommend Margaret's B&B without any hesitation.
Margaret has been running this B&B for several years, and it shows in her professionalism. She gracefully accommodated my late arrival and early departures. And beyond her professionalism I found Margaret to be a very caring and kind person who was a pleasure to get to know in addition to being a great help in travel planning.
