Easily one of the nicest areas in cork with the city centre a 15 minute stroll and the beautiful Lough (loch) birdlife sanctuary on your doorstep which is perfect for a morning jog (just less than 1km or 3/4 of a mile loop) or an afternoon picnic.

The Lough (loch) is a freshwater lake with lots of bird life particularly swans

There is a pub, café and supermarket with deli all beside the Lough plus the best chips in Cork really nearby which can make for great picnics.

You never need to leave the area but beautiful walks through UCC and the Mardyke Gardens are very closeby with the city centre only 15 minutes away

If you're feeling lazy there's a bus stop about 25metres from the house but most places you'll want to go to are closeby.

Loved staying at Brian and Angie's. The house truly was cosy and suited my needs perfectly.

This house was cosy and pleasant, as described, and in a nice location near the lough. It was an easy walk into the centre of town and shops, restaurants and bars were nearby, if not on the doorstep. We appreciated the cooking basics that were provided and the local information too. Only difficulty was finding the house, which is not where it is shown in (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps or in the listing. This was resolved readily with a phone call however, and our thanks to Anna for meeting us and guiding us to the house.

We stayed a couple of nights in Brian and Angie's home, it really was a home away from home. Comfortable to stay in, easy to use and so convenient to the city. Walking around the lough in the morning was such a lovely way to start the day!

Brian and Angie were spot on with their description! They were very communicative and provided a great deal of suggestions for places to see, eat and drink. An amazing location just off the beaten track. Their home was absolutely lovely and made us feel just at home a little Irish charm. The backstory on the apartment was just as interesting and stimulating as its location. When in Cork, stay at Brian and Angies!

Brian and Angie have a beautiful home which we immediately felt completely at ease in. We stayed over Christmas and it really was a home away from home. They made our arrival very welcoming with fresh bread, milk, hot cross buns and a selection of other essentials. The location is beautiful, right beside the Lough, which was lovely for walks. Overall a great experience and would highly recommend staying here.

We have met some incredibly lovely and welcoming hosts through airbnb, but I must say, Brian is the one to beat! I have rarely encountered a complete stranger so easy to work with and with such boundless generosity. He and his family bent over backwards to ensure our small family was perfectly looked after for our month long stay in his and Angie's beautiful and extremely well appointed home. The home itself lacked nothing - we had everything we needed from all the right kitchen implements, super comfortable beds (even the pull out couch), fast wifi and surround sound. The neighbourhood is also perfect - right next to a beautiful urban lake (the lough), and walking distance to groceries and to downtown Cork. But that wasn't all! There were also toys and colouring books for our three year old, snacks in the fridge so we wouldn't have to go out after a day of travel, and total flexibility when we had last minute changes to our group. We were truly spoiled, terribly sad to leave and it goes without saying we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Brian And Angie User Profile

We're both professionals who have travelled using Air bnb and love using it as a way to get know locals and the area in a way that you just can't in hotels. We travelled in Asia last Summer and it was great to spend more time in less places to get a better appreciation of daily life. We hope we can help others experience the same in Cork

We both love good food and cook a lot at home. I love all sports but both of us enjoy running (no excuse with track around Lough in sight).
We look forward to welcoming our guests to Cork
