Fishermen's rest
Pearse Square


Planned by John Anderson, Fermoy is one of the few towns in Ireland, designed to face the river.

Fermoy is centrally located in Munster in County Cork, with counties, Kerry, Tipperary, Waterford and Limerick within easy reach.

We have found with our guests that their reason for choosing Fermoy is its central location, its natural beauty and its proximity to airports and ferry ports.

Over the past two centauries, Fermoy has held onto its wonderful character and the River Blackwater is still the centrepiece of this beautiful town.

River and Square

The river is also central to a wonderful range of activities, rowing, kayaking, canoeing and of course, fishing.
