Interaction with Guests
I will be home part of the time. I have lived in Cork City most of my life so I am happy to share my local knowledge of Cork City with guests.
The estate was built in the 18th century to accommodate the soldiers from the Elizabethan fort during its reconstruction. (the original wall still surrounds my estate). A wonderful, quiet cul de sac with fantastic neighbors.
10 mins walk from bus station and 20 mins walk from train station

Des und seine Frau waren sehr nett und haben mir stets gute Ratschläge gegeben. Ich habe mich in ihrer Gegenwart sehr wohl gefühlt und habe die Gespräche genossen. Die Unterkunft war genau so wie auf den Fotos und in der Beschreibung angegeben. Die Nachbarschaft war sehr freundlich und ruhig.
Des made me feel very welcome! The house is very comfortable, the environment is very relaxed and the location is just amazing: just next to bars, restaurants and really near the city center. Des helped me a lot on sharing advises on supermarkets location, and on finding the best way to any destinations I needed. An his cat is simply adorable! I can say a learned a lot with Des. Highly recommend this "cozy room"!
Desmond was a really cool host. He was very friendly and we had great conversations. We could use all stuff in the kitchen to cook something. Breakfast was also included and tasty.
I definitely would recommend this location!!
Absolutely wonderful place to stay and Desmond is wonderful host and really help make Cork feel like a new home.
Location was great. Its a 4 minute walk from the main bus thoroughfare, yet the neighborhood was (surreal-ly) quiet.
The room was more than large enough for me and 50 lbs of stuff. Cleanliness was great, and the host made sure that privacy/entertainment was available when necessary.
Desmond makes you feel more than welcome and can really help give you a lay of the land and feedback on any possible question you may have.
Desmond is a kind and hospitable host, who makes you feel at home. I stayed at his place for 6 nights, and felt very relaxed. It was great that I could use the kitchen, and that there was cereal, eggs and juice for breakfast. The bedroom was fine, too. The location is convenient, within walking distance of the city centre as well as the university.
Desmond was a perfect host, really helpful and gave me good advices. The house is clean, warm and comfortable. The hose is located really close to the city centre but at the same time it is a quite neighborhood. I relly enjoyed my stay in his house.
