Interaction with Guests
We're always happy to have a cup of tea and a chat :)
I had a good time at Lefre's nice house.
If you are looking for a place not far away (15 min) from the center, I would definitely recommend this place.
A really beautiful stay in Cork. The house is awesome and it is really close to the city center, just some minutes walking. Lefre is a great host and I felt like at home in her house.
Thank you so much for a lovely, welcoming stay! The single room was just perfect for my 2 week visit. It was so nice to have a "home" in a friendly neighbourhood in Cork. I would definitely recommend this place. Thanks!
Great hosts, great neighborhood, and a very convenient location. Lefre and Eamonn were very nice and helpful!
I'm very glad I trusted the previous reviews, staying with Lefre and Eamonn was a very good choice! I needed a temporary room because I was about to start university in Cork and wanted to look for long-term accommodation on the spot. It was my first time in Cork, so I was very happy to be welcomed so warmly by both of them. I didn't only get a lovely room to stay in and great advise on what to see and where to go, but I also really enjoyed their easy-going and open attitude and great sense of humour. I hope we'll stay in touch... :)
The atmosphere in the house is really relaxed and you can tell that they actually enjoy running a private bnb and don't just do it to cash in on the spare rooms they have. You're perfectly accommodated here, whether you are a sociable person or prefer your privacy. Both works very well. And yes, it is clean and it is close to the city centre and the dog really is super cute.
Lefre's place was a nice spot to spend a couple of days in Cork. It was about a 10-15 min walk to the city centre, and in a nice neighborhood. The bed was a little firm for my liking, but overall I had a positive experience. Lefre is very friendly and has a lot of travel stories to talk about.

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:)
