About this listing
King sized bed in own room in a shared house 10 mins from city centre. Cosy house with exposed brick work and period features. All mod cons and recently renovated. Pubs, cafe's and shops all near, area is quiet and peaceful for a good night's sleep
Large bright double room with tonnes of storage space for suitcases etc. Dual aspect with fabulous country side like views. Close to all amenities. Full use of the house, including the kitchen and sitting room. Shared bathroom with full shower/bath (I require full use of the bathroom between 7.15 am and 7.45 am due to work hours.) Please note the bathroom is on the ground floor. It is a 1 minute walk to the local shop, pubs and cafe's, and a 7-10 minute walk to the city centre, UCC in 20 minutes, less than 10 minutes to the bus station and there's a taxi rank at the end of the street. Perfect base for a stay in the city, everything is within reach yet the area is quiet and peaceful. There are two friendly dogs living in the house,if you are nice to them they will love you forever! Please be aware that this house is a period property with some low doorways and the staircase is narrow and steep.
There are two bedrooms in the house so there may be up to 2 other guests during your stay.
As I work part time, am in college part time, need to walk the dogs, shop, finish assignments etc, I need to know your arrival time as soon as you can so we can arrange a suitable time for us both :)
Full access to the kitchen, sitting room and bathroom. These areas are shared by everyone in the house, myself and possibly 2 other guests. I will provide tea/coffee facilities and light breakfast, shower and shower products.
Please smoke completely outside the house with all doors and windows closed thank you :)
Interaction with Guests
I live permanently in the house so can help you with any information you require. I tend mostly to be here in the late evening but am happy to help as much as I can or leave you to enjoy Cork on your own, whichever you prefer!
This is an old, well established area and we have lovely friendly neighbours. This area of cork is artsy, with some lovely shops selling local artists work, and small individual unique shops.
There is on street parking available all up and down the street which is €2 for 2 hours (all of cork has this except the inner city which is €2 for 1 hour). There is an area within an 8 minute walk which has free parking but it fills quickly so I can't guarantee it.
Coffee is a specialty around here as are craft beer pubs :-)
Taxi rank 1 minute walk. Main bus terminal 10 minutes. Train station 20 minutes. City Centre 8-10 minutes. UCC 20 minutes. Extremely well positioned for transport. 5 minute walk from airport bus stop.
Other Things to Note
Check in times are flexible, but I do need to know when you plan to arrive, otherwise I may be at either of my two jobs or in College etc.,
Please email me when the reservation is confirmed to arrange check in.
Do let me know if you are running late or having difficulties and I will do my best to facilitate/navigate/find you :)
We like a glass of wine and chats but this is not a party house. As we work full time we would appreciate keeping noise to a minimum and (midweek) please talk to us first if you need to shower during 7.15am - 7.45am! I do expect guests to be respectful of our privacy at all times, as I will be of yours :)
Besides the kitchen, sitting and bathroom all other rooms are private and you may not enter. Please note, there is no smoking in the house, but you may smoke in the garden. ABSOLUTELY no unregistered guests
