Fermoy is a busy and welcoming town on the path of the majestic River Blackwater, one of the longest rivers in Ireland, flowing through quaint villages and charming countryside for over 150 miles.
Fermoy is the only town on the Blackwater that faces the river and incorporates it into its streetscape. The Blackwater is internationally known for the excellence of its coarse and game angling. Fermoy, a planned town designed in the 1790s, is renowned for its attraction as an inland fishing centre. Anglers from all over the world come for trout, salmon and coarse fishing.
In archaeological terms, this is one of the most interesting spots in Ireland, with many centuries-old castles, round towers, and other historic structures
The town is a 40 minute drive on the M8 motorway from Cork City and 50mins from Cork Airport and is part of Ireland's Ancient East. You can take bus 245 from the bus station at Parnell Place to Fermoy.
