Spacious ensuite double bedroom in a stylish period house in a quiet city-centre cul-de-sac. Built in 1820, the four-storey townhouse has handsome high-ceilinged rooms and spectacular views of the city and river.

The space

Spacious high-ceilinged double bedroom in a Georgian townhouse in a quiet city centre cul-de-sac; the many pubs, cafés, restaurants, coffee shops and The Everyman theatre on MacCurtain Street are just five minutes walk away. The four-storey period house was built in 1820 and has spectacular views of the city and river; the guest room looks out on the back garden and a small woodland beyond. The stylish ensuite bedroom is on the first floor at the rear of the house, and has a comfortable five-foot kingsize bed with good quality bed linen; the only other room on the floor is the elegant living room, which has deep sofas, an open fire, well-stocked bookshelves, and tall windows – perfect for relaxing after a busy day’s sightseeing. Guests can also enjoy the private mature front garden across from the house, which has a seating area that is ideal for a morning tea or coffee. Breakfasts include fresh fruit and juices, homemade granola and marmalade, and free-range eggs, and are served in the large ground floor kitchen-dining room area. Free wi-fi is available throughout the house; a notebook computer is provided in the bedroom, as are a hairdryer and bottles of filtered water.

Guest access

Guests have access to the first two floors of the house....which includes living room, kitchen and gardens. Our bedrooms and bathroom are the floor (URL HIDDEN) both parties have plenty of privacy.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to give advice and direction about the many things to do and see in the city; we have guides, tourist information, and we’ve produced our own guide to the Best of Cork, which we can email to you in advance.

Other things to note

Apart from the charm of this period property one of the best things about it is its proximity to the city centre, making it extremely convenient.
However it is also in a quiet cul de sac so very tranquil considering its central location.

Excellent experience. My sister and I stayed here for two nights and we can't recommend it enough. The home is absolutely lovely and very close walk to the center of the city. Our room was comfortable and quiet and had access to a cozy reading room. Jackie and Philip are both kind and interesting people and excellent hosts. They were eager to give recommendations and be helpful in any way possible. Would definitely stay here again.

This home is very comfortable. Beautiful view of Cork from their home and garden. Within walking distance of some great restaurants and pubs with traditional Irish music. The shower was one of the best we've had in Ireland. Fresh squeezed juice, homemade granola, and fruit for breakfast each day. Highly recommend this Airbnb!

We enjoyed our two nights here very much. Our hosts were delightful and extremely helpful in making our stay productive and fun. The house is very comfortable and quiet, the room is the entire second floor of the townhouse with 13 foot ceilings. The bath is totally updated and breakfast was very fresh and delicious. No issues at all and we'd stay again. The one caution is if you have difficulties walking up hills or steps, plan on a taxi or driving into Cork. I am a reasonably fit 62 year old and had no problems.

This house is charming with very tasteful upgrades. The breakfasts were tasty, filling, and healthy. We had plenty of room to spread out and Jacqueline made us feel like we were at home.

Lovely home, walkable to many locations. Jaqueline was very kind and had good recommendations, The room was beautifully decorated with a very comfortable bed and nice sheets, and pillows. The breakfast was perfect (delicious, varied, and just enough food for our Californian taste/appetite). If you don't mind walking or driving up a small steep street from city center Cork, this place is perfect.

A lovely old townhouse close to Cork centre but still quiet and secluded. Our accommodation was perfect. Everything that you require. Jacqueline and Philip are very friendly with a good knowledge of the area and of the best places to visit for food and music.

Jacqueline's home is by far the best experience i've had with airb&b! She is extremely flexible and helpful, and took time to show us everything in the house as well as a map of Cork. She is so accommodating and friendly (not to mention the breakfast and coffee she prepared for us was the best we had in our two weeks of travel!) The room is spacious, bright, and cozy. I will definitely be back, and could not recommend her place more!
