Cosy double room with brand new mattress in a quiet area just 2 minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Cork's lovely city centre. Great garden, sweet little pets and a chilled-out atmosphere in a beautiful old house!

The Space

Cosy double room with brand new mattress in a quiet area just 2 minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. The bedroom catches the morning sunlight, whilst the evening rays soak the garden.

We have two small dogs and two cats; the dogs (one Jack Russell and one Dachshund mix) are quiet (usually!), energetic and very friendly, whereas the cats (one is veeeery old) just like chilling and eating.

Everything Cork city has to offer is within walking distance of the house, and there is a friendly tourist office close by, though we would be delighted to share our knowledge of the city with you! There are plenty of leaflets about Cork's attractions and surroundings in the bedroom too. Walking distance to both bus and train stations (each 10 minutes walk), and a 20-minute bus journey to the airport.

Amenities:
100mb wi-fi connection - broadband
Bathroom with new electric shower (Update: Shower is now SHARED and is cleaned daily)
Towels, bed linen, shower gel, shampoo, etc. are provided
Tea and coffee making facilities in the room (freshly ground coffee and a large selection of herbal teas!)
Large garden with garden furniture and vegetables
Very central; close to bars, shops, restaurants, sights.
On-street disc parking (tickets are available in local shops and I usually stock some here too!)
Large fridge in the basement where you can store yummy goodies

Please let me know if you would like to use the kitchen so that we can accommodate :)

Check-in and check-out times are negotiable, depending on our working hours, but usually after 4pm would be good. Please give us a check-in time with a maximum error of one hour! Directions will be made available to anyone with a confirmed booking.
Please contact through AirBnB, not through private email; thanks!

Guest Access

I love cooking, reading, relaxing with nice music, long walks and travelling. The house is beautiful, bright and spacious with loads of character and charm! Lots of original features, such as shutters on the windows, stained glass, wooden floors, high ceilings, etc. The kitchen is currently unavailable for personal use, though you can email beforehand and we may be able to accommodate you (as long as you don't mind animals bouncing around!) :)

We don't smoke during the day in the house, though we sometimes smoke in the evening in the kitchen, which is on the ground floor and the guest room is on the third floor (but if you are strongly opposed to this, please let us know and we have no problem to go outside!).

The Neighborhood

Really friendly area, lots of old men with dogs pottering around!

Getting around

The house is situated just a 3-minute walk from the town centre; a 7-minute walk to Kent station (train station) and a 5-minute walk to Parnell Place bus station. The airport is about a 20-minute taxi ride (costs about 14euro).

  • Wir hatten einen super Aufenthalt in Maites Haus. Das Zimmer ist ca. 5 Gehminuten von der City entfernt.Wir haben oft im Garten gesessen und die Zeit dort genossen. Es gibt 2 Katzen und 2 Hunde, die so süss sind, das wir sie am liebsten mitgenommen hätten :-) Alles war sauber und ordentlich und Maite und ihr Freund waren die perfekten Gastgeber.Wir können diese Unterkunft nur empfehlen, da wir uns "wie zuhause"gefühlt haben.Die perfekte Unterkunft für Ferien in Cork.

  • Lovely home and lovely host. Maite was very friendly and accommodating! Her home was conveniently across the bridge from the center of town. Highly recommended!

  • Totally what I was looking for since I spent the majority of my visit to Cork touring around. Apartment was close to the city (5 minute walk) and clean. Maite was great - didn't see too much of her because I was out and about. Would recommend if you are looking for a good location and a comfortable bed at a great price!

    Cheers maite!

  • I had an awesome time staying with Maite! (Not on my computer at home and I don't know how to type the accent, sorry!) The room was very cozy and it was nice to have a little bathroom to myself. The garden (email hidden) to relax and Maite, her mother, and friends were great company. I would definitely recommend staying here, and I was sorry to leave!

  • Maite was really friendly and flexible, I had a great stay there. Getting around was easy with the maps and directions that Maite has provided. The room was clean, nice and cosy. And the location was great, near to town.

  • Comfortable, firm bed. Amazing, central location. Lovely, accommodating host.

  • Maite, (email hidden) and was very accommodating wrt early arrival and late departure as well as using her fridge. The room is very well described by Maite in her advert. The location is excellent if you are there for shopping and night life but you still want a quiet street to rest your head. Maite has 2 lovely dogs who were so charming and cute.
