Park the car, the city centre is only a 20 min stroll, a bus to the country is 30 min away
I know what's on in local pubs, theatres, galleries, I have invites to openings and events.
Relax by the fire, chat over a cuppa or be independent, you choose.

downstairs toilet, upstairs in-bath shower
Bed linen and towels
Sitting room, kitchen
tea and coffee making, fridge, stove fire, television. Wifi
For longer stays we can come to an arrangement about the kitchen. You can use my spices if you show me a new recipe!
I like to greet visitors and have a chat with them, but will leave them alone if that is their preference.
I have shared some lovely, lively meals with my guests.
This is a safe, family-oriented area, only 6 minutes stroll from Europe's only city-centre wildlife sanctuary, where you can overhear all kinds of conversations: for a laugh, search for 'The Lough Birds' on YouTube!
2 buses pass the end of my street - one goes to a shopping mall, the second to city centre in one direction, Cork University Hospital at the other. It is a short walk or bus ride to the city centre, a 10 minute taxi ride to the airport.
Breakfast is cereal, juice, tea or coffee and whatever fruit is in the bowl, toast if there's bread in the bin. If you have any allergies or special dietary requirements, let me know and I'll do my best to get, for example, lactose and gluten free items
Everything was good . Michelle was helpful and friendly very good
I had a lovely stay at Michelle's. A lovely interesting cosy house, with fresh coffee and a warm fire. The bedroom was clean airy and warm. Extra touches like the magazine on the beside table made me feel very welcome. Michelle was friendly, helpful and generous. I think the one word for my stay was "ease", it was easy, and I felt at ease.
Accueil très chaleureux de Michelle, qui est une personne bien agréable et arrangeante ( comme venir me chercher en voiture malgré l'heure tardive et avec le sourire ! ). Maison très chaleureuse et agréable aussi, à la décoration artistique vraiment réussie ! Et puis le quartier est calme et sécurisant, avec un supermarché (Supervalue) et un parc dans lequel il y a un lac à deux pas seulement ! Seul petit soucis : la chambre sent l'humidité, mais à mon départ, l'architecte arrivait déjà pour résoudre ce problème très prochainement. Je recommande vivement d'aller chez Michelle, ce sera mon adresse assurée pour mon prochain séjour à Cork !
All good. Michelle was kind and helpful even if I booked with little advance. (Last minute!)
Thanks so much to meet my needs.
Staying Michelle has been lovely. From lending umbrellas and rain coats, to providing tea and impromptu breakfast, Michelle has gone above and beyond what was expected form an airbnb host. The place was well located, 20 mins walk to the city center. Michelle was really friendly and also very knowledgable about Cork city, if you need info about what to do. Her place will be my first choice when i return to Cork. Price was excellent. This is your chance to meet a super friendly local who will make you feel at home!
Michelle in Cork provided a warm friendly welcome and room that allowed freedom to come and go without disturbing herself (if late back from town !) The City center proved a 20 mins walk away and easy to find from her's by car. Overall we had a lovely time with Michelle being such good bubbly and accomodating company. Definately one of the "thousand Irish welcomes"!
