  • Richard has a beautiful house just a couple minutes stroll from the centre of downtown Cork. The room and house were immaculate, with great little details and amenities. The breakfast he made for us was fresh and delicious, and served in a nice front room on the main floor, with some of his fine works of art on the walls.

    He was pleasant to chat with, and very helpful with sorting out parking, directing us to good spots to eat and shop, and helped us get bags back in the car when it was time to go. I'd highly recommend staying here, even the most picky person will find nothing to complain about.

    Thanks Richard!

  • Great location and Richard was an excellent host. One of the best breakfasts I've had through Airbnb. Also the artwork throughout the place is beautiful.

  • Richard went above and beyond what we expected from a host. He went out of his way to make us comfortable throughout our stay. He made us a vegetarian version of the full Irish breakfast, which was hands down the best breakfast we had in Ireland. He was respectful of our privacy, and tidied our room while we were out each day. The Roman house is pretty centrally located in Cork. It was about a 10 minute walk from the Cork train station and there is a city bus that makes a stop directly across the street from the Roman house. I cannot say enough good things about Richard, Scruffy cat, and the Roman house!

  • Richard was the perfect host; his house is really charming, the atmosphere is really calm and relaxed; the house is tidy and decorated with a nice combinations of original pieces. Walking distance to the city center less than 10 minutes.

    The room we stayed in is en suite with fresh towels every day and has a little fridge and kettle with daily supply of tea/coffee/milk. Richard offered my friend and I a variety of breakfast to our choice; cooked Irish breakfast or cereals and toast, orange juice, fruits and cheese, and he topped it up buying soy milk for us. The first day we had a tour booked and we had to leave early and he was really accommodating with the breakfast time.

    He also gave us a map with recommendations of places to go and he lent us an umbrella to go out at night as the weather wasn't the best during the weekend.

    There is a very sociable cat in the house, he is lovely and quite, he looks like Garfield.

    Richard is a very easy going, really nice to talk to and he will give you lots of advice to visit the area and your stay in his place will be a pleasure, I sure recommend Richard as a host.

    Thanks Rich for a lovely stay at your place.

  • Richard is a very calm and nice man, taking things easy and very helpful in every question! The beautiful old house is very close to the center of Cork. En Suite bathroom of my room was very tiny but everything else was very charming! Most important thing: the bed let me sleep and had a very comfortable feel.
    Clearly recommend this to anyone!

  • Richard is a very nice person ! He was trying to help us all the time giving advices and tips, maps and leaflets as well. Every mornig served an amazing delicious irish breakfast. He has an old irish house with beautiful, stylish interior close to the city centre. Room was big and cleaned every day. There was a little fridge inside and kettle which simpliefied our life :) and a big comfortable bed.
    I recommend you to visit this man if you are in Cork.
