A Georgian Home, full of character & charm.
The guests will have access to a south facing, relaxed, (no one believes we are in the centre of the city!), sunny garden with seating areas & BBQ , free wifi and fresh eggs from our on site hens!!!
We love having guests, meeting people from other countries & cultures & we enjoy finding things in the city & surrounding country side that the guests will enjoy & find interesting.
We live 5 minutes walk from the city center, Fitzgeralds Park, The Glucksman Art Gallery, Cafe Paradiso, University College Cork, the River Lee Hotel and car parking nearby.
Cork is a perfect walking city but also has a regular bus service & plenty taxis if needed.
Evening meals can be provided by prior arrangement.
Other Things to Note
2 nights minimum stay.
No smoking in the house.
The home was a unique old Georgian home, definitely a cool experience to stay in. The location was only a 5-10 minute walk to all the goings-ons in Cork, but still out of the hustle and bustle. Anne and her family were all very nice and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. Lovely stay :)
I'd like to thank you Anne, Graham and Rory, their son, for this warm welcome I had in their lovely home. I felt immediately like in my own home. They are very nice and take care of everything for you. They live within 10 minutes by walk from the center (St Patrick's street) and will help you to decide what to do in Cork and the countryside. Breakfast is included and you will taste the eggs from their own chickens!
If I come back to Cork, I will surely come back to their home. Thank you again!
Anne and her family were very welcoming immediately upon my arrival. Their attention to detail with the accommodations and knowledge of the surrounding area made the trip that much more enjoyable. The neighborhood location was set just off from the downtown area of Cork. No more than a few minute walk for good food, shopping, or what have you. I would highly recommend staying with Anne and her family at their residence.
Anne and Grahame have a beautiful house and welcomed us into it in such a hospitable way that we were made to feel immediately at home. They and their son were really friendly and accommodated our various requests, questions, etc. with ease and good grace.
The house is centrally located just off the busier main streets and very convenient for activities in the city centre and the University.
The room we stayed in was very comfortable, warm and quiet with great views over the city, and came with an adjacent bathroom for our sole use.
Breakfast was included and I was able to use their incredibly well-appointed kitchen for cooking in the evenings when needed.
I had a very busy schedule whilst in Cork and was able to relax and enjoy the evenings in their house as if it were my own. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Thank you for everything ! Nous sommes restés deux semaines dans la fabuleuse famille de Anne et sa très chaleureuse maison. A notre disposition une chambre spacieuse et une salle de bain rien que pour nous. Dans la chambre on peut trouver des adaptateurs pour les prises, très pratique car nous venons de France. On y trouve également des prospectus sur les choses à visiter à Cork, un sèche cheveux, une bouteille d'eau... La salle de bain est petite mais très fonctionnelle et propre, des serviettes propres sont à notre disposition. Nous avons été accueilli par Graham qui nous a proposé un café. Tous les matins nous avions le petit déjeuner (toast, confiture, céréale, des œufs frais du poulailler). Nous avons pu également utiliser la cuisine si besoin. Anne nous a très gentiment proposé de faire une lessive et à notre retour d'une excursion le linge était propre et plié dans notre chambre. Anne et Graham ainsi que leur fils de 17 ans ont toujours le sourire. Ils sont de très bon conseils pour les visites à faire, les itinéraires ou autres. Nous avons pu profiter quelques soirs du feu de cheminée qui se trouve dans une grande salle commune. La maison est vraiment très bien située et proche du centre ville (environ 15-20 minutes à pied). Si je devais trouvé un petit bémol cela serait au niveau de la connexion Wifi. La connexion est quasi inexistante dans la chambre, mais une fois dans la salle commune cela fonctionne un peu mieux. Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour à Cork et nous sommes tombés amoureux de l'Irlande ! Je recommanderai la famille de Anne et sa maison sans aucune hésitation.
Anne is a charming hostess, and she made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Our room was comfortable, and the location was within easy walking distance of the city centre. Breakfast was taken in the kitchen with the family and other house guests - and we enjoyed the fresh eggs from the hens in the back garden. We came and went as we pleased, and we enjoyed being able to come back to the quiet house for an afternoon nap (having been up to the early hours at the Cork Jazz Festival).
Our experience of staying with Anne was so much more enjoyable than staying in a hotel or a traditional B&B as we were made to feel like friends of the family rather than just anonymous guests. This was our first AirB&B experience - and we look forward to many more if they are like this.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience than to stay with Anne, Grahame and their son, Rory. From the minute I walked in the door they made me feel welcome and at home. Their house was comfortable and clean and walking distance to everything I wanted to see and do in Cork City. But more important was the genuine kindness and friendliness that surrounded me. They all went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable, from feeding me when I arrived tired and hungry to letting me ride along when they had business in Baltimore allowing me to do more sight seeing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and look forward to visiting again.
