Nice sized house with good living space and kitchen, but taxi into town. Leonard was a helpful host.

Leonard's house is a great place, big enough for a group of 7-8 people. The house is clean and well equiped. It really corresponds to the pictures and the description made and is 20-25 minutes walk from the city center. Leonard was available for us even if we did not meet.

We stayed 15 days at Leonard's place and the experience was absolutely great. First of all the city of Cork and the surroundings are absolutely beautiful, then the neighbourhood in Glasheen road is just lovely. All small villas with nice gardens. From there you can have a nice 10 min walk to the center with plenty of pubs, shops, a supermarket and you are at 2 minutes from Cork Lough where you can run and do some physical activity. The house is exactly as described, 4 nice bedrooms, a large living room and a fully equipped kitchen. The garden is also perfect if you want to have a barbecue party. Last but not least Leonard is a true gentleman, always available to help if you have any request. At you arrival at his place, you will find a very simple summary of all the things you need to know in the house and some maps and some brochures about Cork and the region. I would definitely recommend the place to anyone who wants to discover Ireland in an authentic way or simply to anyone who would like to spend wonderful holidays.

Leonard communicated well before and during our trip. The home is spacious and in decent shape with a nice yard and parking spaces. We enjoyed the proximity to downtown and the University and would stay here again.

Hi, my name is Leonard and I would like to welcome you to stay in our house in Cork City or our house in Rosscarbery. West Cork is a wonderful place to visit and meet local people and eat some fine West Cork food. Why not visit Cork City its a great place to visit with lots of shops, restaurants, pubs and great places to visit locally including Kinsale for sailing and good food, Blarney for the gift of the gab, and Cobh to visit where the Titantic visited. Our City house is close to UCC and the University Hosipital. Walk to the city in 15 mins or get the bus outside the door.

We love having guests staying with us and have plenty of parking space for you and a nice garden. We love traveling ourselves and have done many house swaps with other people over the years.

Slán (bye bye for now),
