Thank you for considering staying with us! We live in a beautiful old Irish Lodge and there are many country walks to enjoy starting right outside the door. We are only 20mn drive from Cork city & 6 mn from Glanmire and Riverstown village.
This is a double bedroom comfortable for either one or 2 people. If another room is needed, it can be arranged, let us know in advance.
The Lodge is situated in Blossom Grove, a beautiful area of Glanmire, on a quiet country road, you have access to the City in 20 mn. There are local restaurant and pubs in Glanmire & Riverstown village 6mn drive.
There is a kettle in your room, with teas and coffees, but no self catering available for daily or weekly stay.
For stays above one week, self catering and washing machine available.
There is WIFI, a full metaphysical library (books and films) here from which you can borrow from while you are our guest, and a meditation room / lounge which is mostly yours while you stay with us.
We do not have a TV (on purpose) so movies can be played on your laptop if you are carrying one with you.
Bathroom, Lounge (Meditation room and Metaphysical Library), Garden, Walks nearby.
Interaction with Guests
This is a family environment. I work from home as an author.
If you want to have your own time with absolutely no disturbance, we will make ourselves invisible!
I interact with you as much or as little as desired, this is your time so it is up to you! You might like to enjoy a quiet space. We do have a dog and a cat but they live outside.
You can join us for a morning walk if you wish (with dog!) or borrow the dog so he gets an extra walk :-)
Woodland walks, large green fields, big old trees, the song of birds... The perfect Irish countryside life!
Bus: 221 from right outside the door, mainly runs early morning, throughout the day and finishes early in the evening. When you purchase your ticket, make sure the bus goes all the way to Knockraha, and ask to be dropped by 'Cantillon Lane'. Please note that there are only 3 buses per day all the way to our house.
Other (regular) buses are n.245 and n.246 (check out (website hidden) for bus timetables), and they both go through Riverstown, where you should get off, at the Supervalu shopping centre. There is a taxi company in the same shopping area (next to post office) and a lift to the house will cost you less than 10 euros. If am not too busy, I might even pick you up.
Other Things to Note
This accommodation can serve as a retreat, for a full list of Mahayana's work, see Mahayana (website hidden)

Kindly note that there is no smoking inside, but you are welcome to smoke outside in the garden.
When you arrive, please ring the bell outside the garden gate before you come in (just for the first day), we have a Shepherd dog, and a cat who may run out of the gate, thank you! :-)
Mahayana was very welcoming. Her dog was also very keen on becoming fast friends. The space was very nice and relaxing. We enjoyed our stay and only wish we could have stayed longer.
Isabelle à été notre première hôte en Irlande. Elle nous a accueilli en dernière minute et nous avons eu beaucoup de chance de l'avoir! c'est une très chouette personne qui heureusement pour nous parlait français. Elle possède une très jolie maison. La chambre est très belle et très confortable. Merci encore pour l’accueil. Je recommande et si je dois retourner sur Glanmire, c'est là que j'irais.
I am originally from France, living in Ireland for 20 years. I am an author, a Ph.D. Metaphysical Teacher. I love food, healthy and indulgent, depending on the mood! I love a quiet, comfortable place where relaxation and well being reflect the nature of who we are. You are very welcome here :-)
