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!
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 one cat; the dogs (one Jack Russell and one Dachshund mix) are quiet (usually!), energetic and very friendly, whereas the cat just likes chilling and eating, and he is quite talkative and very loving.
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.
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 :)

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!).
Interaction with Guests
PLEASE NOTE: Maité's lovely mother, Karin, will be minding the house from April - August 2015, and she is sure to make your stay as pleasant as possible!
Really friendly area, lots of old men with dogs pottering around! Great view of Cork from top of the hill.
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).

Other Things to Note
PLEASE NOTE: Maité's lovely mother, Karin, will be minding the house from April - August 2015.
Quiet after 11pm on weekdays please!
Let us know the day before if you want breakfast :) I will leave it out for you in the kitchen. Help yourself to cereal, etc. in the study room.
Please TURN OFF the heating in your room when you are out.
If you would like to use the kitchen, please let us know in advance as we hang out there most of the time!
Please give us a check-in time with a maximum error of one hour, so we can organise ourselves! :)
Also - VERY important - Please close the front door PROPERLY when entering or leaving, as it opens on to the street and I would be worried about the cats!
Great location!! And what a cozy cute room. Even got some cuddle time with the cat. Thanks Maité!
Apartment was in really good location. Me and my friend had a nice and clean bedroom and bathroom with good price.
My stay at Maite's house was very nice, as she was very lovely with me. The description suits quite exactly the reality! The only thing : you must like dogs :)
Maison agréable et pleine de charme, la chambre est propre et la literie très confortable. Non négligeable, sur le palier il y a une salle d'eau qui nous est réservée et une pièce avec thé, café et petits gâteaux à disposition !
Idéalement située : je recommande !
Attention pour les personnes ayant du mal à marcher : la maison est située en haut d'une côte.
La mia permanenza a casa di Maité è stata ottima! Ho soggiornato nella stanza in cima alla casa, ottimo il materasso, più che discreto il bagno. Accanto alla stanza vi è un piccolo soggiorno con scrivania ben illuminato dove poter stare a leggere o al PC. La zona è tranquilla e non chiassosa. La casa è attaccata al centro, basta attraversare il fiume (circa 5 minuti a piedi). Maité fin dal primo giorno disponibilissima a dare spiegazioni e aiuto.
Maité's place was great! I didn't get to stay long, but it's a very cool space- a big, old house with tons of character. My bedroom was on the top floor, very cozy, and almost attic-like. During my stay, I had access to the entire floor- my bedroom, a private bath, and an office space I was invited to use. The house is on a hill, with amazing views of the city. All you have to do is walk down and you're in the middle of it all. Maité was super friendly and welcoming. I wish I could have stayed longer! Would definitely come back.
Maite is a very hospitable young lady! I am very grateful to her for these days in Cork. The room is very comfortable and clean. You can turn the heater on if you need so even in winter it`s warm in the room. Moreover, you can use another room close to your bedroom, it`s a wonderful place for the rest and a cup of tea. Also Maite provided me with cereals, tea and coffee.
However, there`s a problem with a shower cause it can be slightly warm or extremely hot.
The location of the house is perfect. Just 5 mins by foot and you`re in the city centre.
I can recommend to everyone this place.
