We arrived here last week as we were attending a wedding in Macroom. Straight away Breda makes you feel at home, the place is kept neat and clean, and Breda is very accommodating towards the guests needs. Would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone traveling through West Cork, real Irish hospitality is still alive and well!

Definitely one of the most hospitable, well kept b&bs in Ireland. In the five times i've stayed there it was always been great "craic". Food excellent, especially the full Irish Breakfast! Breda always makes you feel at home, couldn't fault it.

Room Tip: Any room is great, doesn't matter

We first came across this gem about 7 years ago and have been using it regularly ever since. Breda and Pat have become great friends, looking after us and our young rowers as if we were family. Nothing has been too much trouble, should that be washing and drying kit, very early starts or very late evenings, where they even sort taxis for us! Breakfasts are second to none, freashly cooked and with a good selection of extras. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and even when we arrived with extra passengers, they were always catered for without fuss. If it's a real cead mile failte you want, then this is the place!

I have been on fishing trips to Ireland for the last twenty five years and stayed in nearly every county the country has to offer. I normally like to change every year that is until we stayed at fountain house near macroom. This will be our 4th year on the trot and the reason for that is simply the best in every department we have ever had. The food is fantastic and the warm friendly family atmosphere is spot on. Cups of tea and cakes by the lakeside early afternoon is just perfect and both Pat & Breda can not do enough for you. Breda is a superb cook and will even do you an evening meal if you can manage it after the massive breakfast. Purely and simply the best.

Nothing was too much trouble for our host Breda. She makes you feel part of the family, the welcome we received on arriving was second to none. Without fear of criticism the breakfasts we were served on our 4 day stay were exceptional. The bedrooms were simply decorated but extremely comfortable and well equipped. There was no shortage of towels in the clean en-suite and extra pillows or blankets only a request away. The setting of the B&B is magical overlooking a stunning Lough where in the evenings we strolled along the shoreline enjoying the total peace & tranquillity. Fountain House is ideally situated, with beautiful walks and cycle journeys on the doorstep. Cork City is about a 1/2 hour drive away but the countryside around Macroom is gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area. Would we stay here again - DEFINITELY in fact we have booked for July already!

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.
