“fabulous accomodation and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Our rowing club has been travelling to cork for 5/6 years staying with Breda and pat in fountain house and will certainly be back again this year. Fountain house provides comfortable, clean accomodation with on site parking, huge gardens and a lake for swimming (weather permitting)! Breda serves fab home made breakfasts and evening meals. I call fountain house my home from in cork. Breda goes above and beyond the call of duty, whether it's providing washing/drying facilities for wet rowing gear or providing more than enough food for hungry athletes. I highly recommend fountain house, your every need will be met.

Walking into the Fountain House was like coming home. Breda is there running about taking care of her guests just as well as she takes care of her own children, (who were completely adorable by the way). She made, hands down, the BEST irish breakfast I had throughout my entire tour of southern Ireland, and this fact alone makes staying at this B&B worth the trip. Breda's Parents, Brendan and Cathleen are also outstanding people who were so full of life, and I would like to thank them once again for their hospitality. The property sits on the River Lee with a beautiful view of the farmlands across the way (seriously feels like the shire). The building is a little rough around the edges, but I've stayed in nicer places that had terrible hosts (either rude or unattentive) which left a sour taste in my mouth. Like I said, it's like coming home, you feel so welcome and relaxed that I guarantee you will be thoroughly satisfied.

I had a very enjoyable stay at Fountain House B&B, the setting is right on the river Lee, gorgeous. I had a wonderful time with the proprietor Breda, she was very welcoming, warm personality, and the Irish breakfast was fabulous. Picturesque country setting.

Have traveled to Macroom to stay at Fountain House for 5 years in a row. Lovely B & B in a glorious setting with its own lake and the most welcoming host and hostess.
In the past Breda and Pat have exceeded their obligations in looking after myself and my family and with their extensive breakfast and evening meal menu we had more than adequate choice.
Clean rooms and ensuite bathrooms with fluffy towels were the order of the day and to top off our annual visit a dip in the lake at the bottom of the garden is just exotic .

Excellent service, delicious food, very clean and bright room. Breda is lovely. Overall everything was just perfect. We stayed here because my daughter was in the Irish rowing championships. This B&B was very well situated. My daughter has also stayed here on her own when she travelled to Cork with the rowing squad and Breda has looked after her very well. She was definitely well fed with lovely home cooked meals by Breda.
