The people who welcomed us were very nice and helped us with valuable information about the city of Cork. The accommodation is perfect, big enough and clean. The place is not noisy and the area is very quiet while being close enough to walk to downtown.

Had a 5-star wonderful stay. The description of the accommodation was very accurate and then some. The hosts were a pleasant and enjoyable couple who were very social but also quite respectful of my privacy when needed. And they were an incredible source of information. Sweet and genuine yet very professional people. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The neighbourhood was peaceful with a couple of open green spaces. A nice leisurely 15- minute walk gets you down to the city centre. I'd stay here again without hesitation!

We had a really nice stay at their house and we felt very welcomed. It was a quiet surrounding and there was also a hair dryer in the room. Thank you again for being your guest.:)

The house was within a walkable distance to the city, around 15 minutes which was great. The house was in a lovely quiet and secluded area, that allowed for a good nights sleep. The bed was very comfortable, and the hosts, Lefre & Eamonn, were always very accommodating to any request. Their dog, Bubbles, was a constant joy to have around and loved attention, which were only too happy to oblige. I would fully recommend this Airbnb to anyone staying in Cork and is looking for somewhere peaceful while remaining close to all the city has to offer.

Lefre User ProfileLefre is a superhost.

I live with my husband in a house one mile from the main street in Cork City Centre. We're easy going and friendly, outgoing people. I'm a lawyer and my husband is a statistician. We love travel and have done a huge amount of it together, in all kinds of off-beat destinations. We're big fans of alternative comedy (George Carlin, Stewart Lee, Billy Connolly, Bill Maher). We love good food (Cork is great for this - it's a real gourmet capital with lots of artisan producers), like going for a drink, hanging out with friends and playing cards. I love music and have recently bought myself a guitar - I played music years ago, as a kid. I'm taking some lessons and it's my ambition for this year to learn how to play it properly:)
