A huge late Victorian house only 15 minutes walk from the city centre. Private parking and within walking distance of the train and bus stations. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac. The very large room has a comfortable double bed and antique furnishings. From your room spectacular views over the river. Perfect!

The space

Huge Victorian home, 15 minutes walk from the city centre. Great ambience full of antique furniture and art in one of the most special old parts of Cork

I have put a map of where to find the house with the photos on my listing as we are tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac.

Fiona is a lovely, kind woman! She made us breakfast in the morning and it was delicious! The home is a 15 minute walk from downtown; eat at Gallagher's! The bed is really comfy!

Fiona is a wonderful host and her house is lovely (I was a particular fan of the art prints she has on the walls). Can't complain at all about a fantastic stay replete with comfort, conversation and plenty of fun.

I am a university graduate and ex lawyer ie. non practising with a diverse range of interests. I love taking exercise particularly walking, gym classes and tennis. I am a keen cook with about 200 +hundred cookbooks at this stage! I am a very sociable person with thankfully plenty of friends. One of my favourite things to have people over for supper with plenty of conversation, music and wine! I live with my son and daughter who have grown to enjoy meeting guests through Airbnb since we had our first guests in June 2014.
