Comfortable double room in a friendly and quiet historic area of Cork City, across from Elizabethan Fort and St. Fin Barre's Cathedral, five minute walk from city centre shopping, entertainment, and parks. House supervised by one very cool housecat.
A five minute walk from the city center, and free parking right outside the front door.
Guests have full access to the entire house and cooking equipment.
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
Other Things to Note

Make yourself at home and enjoy your stay.
Check in is flexible, but a time has to be arranged and stuck to as much as possible.
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.
Desmond est quelqu'un de très gentil et accueillant, on se sent vite alaise chez lui. Je recommande vivement. Merci desmond
Staying with Desmond was great! Very convenient location and he was very friendly and gave great advice on what to do and see.
This is a perfect spot right in the heart of the city, but very quiet and residential so no issues with noise, Des and Christy (the cat) are welcoming and generous hosts, the house is small but perfectly fine and the bedroom was warm and comfortable. I was using the house as a base while I flat-hunted and it's due to Des (and Emily) that I found the ideal place! He is a very friendly and informative local man so don't hesitate to ask him anything. Highly recommended!
