Staying with Martina and Eddie is a true pleasure. When we arrived we had a glass of wine with Martina and then she gave us a tour of the area. Eddie and Martina spent time sharing their knowledge about interesting and unique places to travel during the rest of our stay in Ireland. The accommodations are 1st class, and the setting is beautiful.
Martina was a really lovely guest. She tooks time to speak with us and she was very helpfull. The house is beautiful and the room perfect! Thanks a lot for this very nice meeting.
Martina is an excellent host! Martina has everything perfected! Really , she is one of those people who has thought about , well in advance all things/ everything that would make a guest welcome & comfortable.
Both Martina & her husband Eddy were very welcoming & extremely available to the point of taking time to sit and visit upon our arrival , offer us a glass of wine and enjoy their company while we got acquainted .
As well as that Eddie , took the time to tour us all around the village and give us best tips for walks and best quality food haunts , that he and Martina have personal experience of.

We had a great stay at Martinas place. Very nice room and friendly host! Thank you again Martina
Nadia and I stayed with Martina during August 2014 in her beautiful luxurious home in Co. Cork. Upon our arrival we were offered Tea and Coffee in her delightful Garden. We were then shown our lovely and very comfortable bedroom with en-suite. Martina's husband Eddie offered to drive us around and show us the very picturesque areas nearby, which we enjoyed very much. Martina and Eddie's house is in a perfect location a great place to start your journey to west Cork while in an amazing setting close to beaches, great restaurants and a short drive to Cork City. We can highly recommend all Airbnb guests to stay here while in Cork, you wont be disappointed. They both are excellent hosts who go out of their way to make you feel completely at home. We feel like we made very nice friends and will remain in contact with Martina and Eddie. Thank you very much for your hospitality :)
Martina was very friendly when we arrived, offered us a glas of wine and showed us around in her car on a little sightseeing tour around the area. Room and bathroom were absolutely clean, a perfect place to stay when you are in the area!
