Smoking outside apartment only, treat the property with respect,
Gerry met us at the property and gave us an overview of everything, answering all of our questions. The place was beautiful and freshly decorated. Gerry was very friendly and welcoming.
We loved having our own private entrance! The full kitchen was also a nice touch. Plenty of towels, linens, and extra blankets were on hand in case they were needed.
We realized after the first night that the bed would not comfortably hold both my six foot something frame and my wife. After that night we just opened up the sleeper sofa (quite comfortable!) in the sitting room and - voila, two beds, problem solved! Although the bed is a double and would probably sleep two smaller people comfortably, it is not what Americans would call a queen size bed - more what we call a double bed.
We enjoyed our stay at Gerry's place and would gladly stay again.
Both Gerry and his wife were very congenial and answered any questions we had. The neighborhood was well kept and not too far off the main roads. The apt was clean and we enjoyed the tea and biscuits provided.
What a nice private place to stay in Cork. Everything was clean and comfortable. The starter food and milk/juice was very much appreciated. Gerrys wife guided us to the house and did a great job showing us around. Thanks so much for letting us stay.
We only had a quick stay due to an early flight, but were more than happy with Gerry's place. The self contained apartment, which is attached to Gerry's house, is clean and renovated, and was very comfortable. Although the property is outside of downtown Cork and a bit of a drive, it is close to the airport which was very convient.
Gerry was super friendly upon check-in and we enjoyed his company, which was not intrusive at all. The apartment was well appointed, with anything you could need, including coffee/tea and various items for breakfast (cereal, fruit, toast etc). Also the backyard is gorgeous with a large backyard, garden and seating area.
There's a reason this place is always booked -- it's the best deal in Cork. A 5 minute drive from city centre; clean and spacious; all set up for a few nights stay, including basics for cooking and 2 nearby supermarkets. Only thing that fell short of ideal was the shower, which every minute or so would have the hot water interrupted by cool water, but the hot water never seemed to run out so it just added a few minutes to shower time each day.
Gerry and Maureen made us feel so welcome. They are well seasoned hosts and have foreign students stay in their house as well. Our annexe was perfect and I could have quite happily moved in and lived there. Their garden is so beautiful and lovely outdoor areas to lounge in. The neighbourhood is lovely and quiet with lovely houses all around. Having off street parking was a bonus. Gerry was so informative about driving routes to take and places to see and Maureen helped us out in an emergency situation for which we are so grateful. They have two lovely small dogs called Heidi and Holly who just love the attention. We felt well taken care of and everything in the accommodation was above any expectation we could have had. Wish it had been longer. If we come back to Ireland again we would like to base ourselves here and travel out on day trips. Thank you Gerry and Maureen for opening up your home and lives. We really appreciate it. With the most deepest fondness and regards.
They welcomed me into their home, made me feel very comfortable. Helpful in navigating me to locations.
