Interaction with Guests
We're always happy to have a cup of tea and a chat :)
She was waiting for us as we drove up. We had a bit of trouble finding the house as road-street signs were not very visable. All three of them, Lefre, Eomonn and Bubbles seemed anxious to please us. We felt right at home.
Lefre and her husband are absolutely fantastic and positive personalities. That was that AirBnB experience which we would like to experience everywhere where we go. Immediately after confirmation we arranged our arrival, they lend us citymap with list of best pubs, coffeeshops, (website hidden) for Ireland was also provided for us.
Abbiamo soggiornato da lefre per due notti. Camera piccola per due persone, co letto non molto (website hidden) prossimitá alla cucina la rende un pó rumorosa. Collocata a 15 minuti dal centro.
The guys were so nice with us: they welcomed us in Cork, gave many indications and had nice chats with us about Ireland and what was going on in those days in Cork. The accommodation was really cozy and clean, just minutes from the city centre and the neighborhood was lovely.
I highly recommend Cork asa city to visit and this place to stay =)
I had a great stay here. When I arrived I was welcomed with a big smile and a fresh cup of tea. When I wanted to walk of to the City they handed me a little guide book of the city with maps and showed me the fastest way.
One evening they invited me to go out with them and they showed a pub I would never have found on my own.
I enjoyed my stay very much.
Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Lefre et son mari. Il n'y a rien à redire. Lefre nous a tout de suite mis à l'aise à notre arrivée. Nous avons même pas mal discuter le temps d'un repas partagé. Nous recommandons cet endroit. Merci à vous...

Lefre and her husband are excellent hosts! Communication before we arrived was great, and they were very generous with their cups of tea and conversation. They've also got lots of info on Cork and surrounds including lots of great restaurants.
The double room is very comfortable. It's lovely and warm (as is the whole house) and ver quiet, and the shared bathroom is spacious and the shower excellent. We walked into town from and it's an easy 15 minute walk.

About the Host, Lefre
I live with my husband and our dog (a rough collie, who looks like Lassie) 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:)
