Gorgeous big bedroom with french door to balcony. Adjoining private bathroom with power shower & antique bath. If u ever feel disappointed with hotel rooms you wont be with this.. unique space with an outdoor element.. price sometimes negotiable! x
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 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 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, theres a short cut to train station down some steps so its 5 mins and Bus Station 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 !
Had a really nice stay with Pauline. The room is large and great bed, and the bathroom is huge with lovely bath and shower. Proper Irish pub and nice wine bar just a short walk up the hill. A few minutes to train station and bus station and city centre is only 5 minutes walk. Took the bus to Kinsale with was fantastic and worth the trip. Pauline and her son are really friendly and welcoming hosts, with lots of tips about where to go and eat etc. would stay again if in Cork, good value for a great location.
Pauline is great - very friendly and helpful! We loved our stay here! The location was quite convenient, just a few minutes walk from downtown. The room is perfect and included everything we needed. The bed is big and clean and very comfortable (great duvet!), and the fireplace was very lovely - romantic and cozy. It was great to also have our own (huge!) separate bathroom. We enjoyed our breakfasts (coffee, muesli, milk, bread and condiments). There are also tea and coffee supplies in the room (and a hairdryer, since this can be helpful to know). This lovely old house has tons of character. Both host and listing are highly recommended!
This is great place to stay; comfy bed, enormous room!, lovely big bath, log fire, short walk to town and a welcoming host.
Pauline's such a lovely host & we would love to have been able to spend more time with her. The room was just beautiful, the bed really comfortable and the fire very, very welcome having come from the sun to the cold climate of Cork. The bathroom was fantastic and having that and the balcony enabled us to really relax in our own space. We'd love to come back when it's a it warmer. The best private room we've ever had through airbnb. Highly recommended.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay with Pauline! The location was perfect for exploring the city. We had a beautiful large bedroom with balcony and a gorgeous super clean bathroom all to ourselves. There was a working fireplace in the bedroom which made the room really cosy and comfortable..
Pauline was so friendly and welcoming to us. The breakfast was lovely and healthy and we really enjoyed chatting with her! Pauline is a really lovely person and we really enjoyed staying with her and were made to feel so welcome.
I will definitely stay with Pauline next time I return to Cork. Pauline is a fantastic host and staying in her lovely home allowed us to have a relaxed, comfortable and easy weekend in Cork.
Had a beautiful stay at Pauline's Georgian house.
The bedroom was bright and spacious as well as being tastefully decorated. The king sized bed is so comfy you won't want to leave!
We enjoyed lighting the fire and the room really felt so cosy and warm.
The bathroom is just next door and is equally as impressive.
We enjoyed some tasty coffee and friendly chats with Pauline at breakfast before heading off on our way. Would certainly recommend this listing.
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
