About this listing
Very central location. Gorgeous big bedroom with french door to balcony. Adjoining private bathroom with power shower & antique bath. If you ever feel disappointed with hotel rooms you wont be with this - a unique space with an outdoor element
Guests have the whole first floor.... huge bedroom with balcony and Georgian style bathroom. Centrally located five minutes walk from bus and train station and ten minute walk from the city centre. The house is on Summerhill. There are a few bits of the house still not completed from last years refurbishment but this has no effect on the accommodation.
Guests have the whole first floor to themselves and are welcome to use the kitchen
Interaction with Guests
I enjoy meeting new people but totally respect their privacy. Happy to go with the flow
Summerhill is an attractive city neighbourhood, great pub, Henchys just up the road in St. Lukes which is like a little village with grocers, post office, butchers, wine bar and Chinese restaurant........and many restaurants/cafes/pubs just down the road in McCurtain Street and beyond! Urban chic mixed with a leafy old world ambience!!
one can walk to anywhere in Cork from here and walk home late at night no bother.... and the bus stop is just outside the door, there's a short cut to Railway Station down some steps so its 5 mins walk and the Bus Station is at the end of the hill... max 10 mins walk...!
Other Things to Note
The king size bed is nice and comfy, tea and coffee making facility in room. Can sometimes pick up from airport or drop you off for a tenner! Message me to see if i'm available!
Can also accommodate pets.... love animals.
I expect guests to be:-
(a) well behaved
(b) happy !
Une chambre et une salle de bain spacieuses et décorées avec beaucoup de goût, le tout placé idéalement dans un quartier proche du centre, une adresse à conseiller! Merci Pauline!
Pauline`s place was really great. The room and also the bathroom were spacious, tidy and tastefully decorated.
She was a really nice and humorous host and we had some nice conversations. In the house are two very cute and friendly cats.
Pauline`s house is very close to the city centre. Just a few minutes from the heart of the city.
We definitely recommend to stay there!
Pauline is amazing! The room is beautiful and cozy, and I have never felt so welcomed while away from home! Thank you again Pauline, my new "Irish mum"! XO
A fantastic time in Cork at Pauline's! Our room was spacious, meticulously clean and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was roomy and beautifully finished. The bed was big, super comfortable and we didn't want to leave the warmth of the fluffy duvet. Pauline's house is very close to the city centre so we walked everywhere. She was a fantastic host - such a welcoming, happy, interesting lady! Thank you for two amazing nights, Pauline!
I quite enjoyed my time here. Pauline was a very warm, accomodating and engaging host, and answered all of our questions. The room was not lacking, either. Large, spacious and fitted with both a balcony and a fireplace, we could have easily enjoyed our time there in either end of the weather spectrum. The bathroom is immaculate, you'd think it had only just been finished being remodeled. Then there's the unofficial house ambassador. Lulu really should be listed as a feature, if you like cats she'll melt your heart.
Pauline nous a accueillis de manière chaleureuse et elle nous a procuré immédiatement un plan local avec des suggestions de visites et de restaurants. Ces conseils nous ont permis un dîner d'excellente qualité. De la maison le centre ville est facilement accessible à pieds. La chambre proposée est immense et la salle de bain attenante, dotée d'une baignoire et d'une douche. Le tout a du caractère, au premier étage d'une maison en rénovation, mais plein de charme. Le petit déjeuner se prend dans la cuisine même de Pauline, qui s'est chargée de nous le préparer. Cela a été l'occasion d'échanges intéressants et (email hidden)uline nous a accueillis de manière chaleureuse et elle nous a procuré immédiatement un plan local avec des suggestions de visites et de restaurants.

Had a lovely night at Pauline's place in July. We had no trouble finding it and she was very quick to respond to any messages. She was there to meet us when we arrived and get us settled. We went out for dinner and had no trouble coming in later. You have the whole first floor to yourselves with a beautiful washroom. We had a great breakfast with yummy local bread and cereals, enough to keep us going for the morning. Would definitely recommend staying here.
About the Host, Pauline
I lived in London for 20 years and in West Cork for 10. Now I'm back in the City where I live with my teenage son. We're both happy people and enjoy good music & good food and love meeting new people. Doing up this house has been my project for the last year and a half and is ongoing! Have been doing airbnb since last June and absolutely love it... have met the best people.... most of whom I wish lived down the road from me cos we'd be friends! Also totally understand if you want to just shut the bedroom door and BE.. I get that ..... and there lies the secret of being a 'host'...... in my humble opinion! x
