Elisabetta began offering assistance before I even arrived! She is a fantastic host. She contacted me to make sure my train ride went well from Dublin and asked if she could be of any assistance. As I was traveling on my birthday, she even had a birthday cake waiting for me! Later, when I had blisters, she provided Band-aides and fresh socks. She is a very knowledgable, helpful, empathetic host who took great care in making sure I was comfortable, had what I needed and knew where I was going. The room was fantastic and exactly as pictured. Everything was hotel level clean. The view was amazing!
Everything was just as described and better. Lovely room and bathroom with a great view over Cork especially at night time. Very handy to every thing bus and train and even the St Patricks Hill is great exercise and not too long. Worth the walk to get the views.
Elisabetta was very friendly and helpful and I had a lovely stay.
I really had a great time staying with Eli!!! She is an amazing host. She was always super friendly and helpful and provided me with great recommendations on where to go and what to do in Cork.
The room as well as the bathrooms are both spacious and the location is perfect. The house is close to the city centre and to a number of nice pubs and restaurants.
Had a wonderful stay with Eli, she picked me up from the bus station on arrival which was very helpful, provided a map, and proceeded to tell me all the best local spots. She truly loves sharing this info with her guests! To top it off she invited me to join in her birthday festivities, made me feel so welcome! The room itself is quiet and comfortable with a great view overlooking the city, large bathroom, and all just a few minutes walk from the city center. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Eli!
Elisabetta made me very welcome , Had lots of information for me on my arrival , she clearly loves hosting. The room in reality is much nicer than the photo. The location is excellent , and I hope to stay again sometime. Thanks Elisabetta !
Elisabetta was an excellent hostess!!! She really went above and beyond my expectations which made my stay in Cork so great.
When I arrived she provided me with a map of the city and gave me wonderful recommendations on where to find the best fish and chips, pubs, coffee shops, shopping, etc. in town. She also reviewed my itinerary for my days in Cork and marked on the map where the buses were going to be picking me up from and dropping me off, how to get to the train station, etc.
Her place is in an amazing location. Safe neighborhood, and a short 5-10 minute walk down the hill to get to everything. Spacious bedroom with a beautiful view. Everything was very clean. Bathroom is located right beside the bedroom. She had even left a hair dryer for me on the dresser :)
Elisabetta is very accommodating, prompt with all of her communications, and very friendly and sweet. For example, I changed my plans at the last minute to arrive in Cork a few hours before I had initially planned to. On my way to Cork I let her know I would be arriving early, and she was so apologetic that she wouldn't be there when I would arrive (yes, she was very apologetic even though I was the one who changed my plans on her!) and she recommended a fish and chips place/pub to hang out at until she would get home from work and then come meet me at the pub to chat and get to know each other a bit, and then drive us both home!
I definitely recommend staying here. I will absolutely stay here again the next time I am lucky enough to visit Cork.
Very nice place near downtown and the room have a spectacular view on cork. The bed is very comfortable
