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

The space

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.

Guest access

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

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.

Pauline's lovely house is very nicely situated near the train station and bus routes with hilltop views of Cork. Guests should know that if walking to her house there is a steep rise and that the room is up a flight of narrow steps. Pauline was very gracious to allow us to use some of her kitchen utensils and was flexible on the check-in.

We were late arriving but Paulines friend welcomed us in and Pauline was very understanding which we really appreciated! The room is beautiful, so clean, bright and quirky. The bed is so comfortable and you have to try out the bath. Its a 10 minute walk to the city centre so we hardly needed to drive anywhere. Pauline is animal friendly and we met her cat Lulu who was in for cuddles with us now and then so it felt like home to us. Will definitely be coming back again :)

This was my first time staying in a private room air bnb and have to say it was plusher and bigger than some full homes I've rented! The "apartment" was plenty space for my trip to cork and made me glad the hotel hosting the wedding I was attending was booked out! 5min walk to closest bars/restaurants and another 10 into cork centre! I was travelling alone and felt very safe walking around at night and staying in Pauline's beautiful home! Communication was easy and if ever back in cork wouldn't hesitate to return to Pauline's!

Really cool set up for Airbnb (URL HIDDEN) entire private floor with heaps of space. Unique decor added to the experience. The rest of the four story flat was in progress, but gleamed with potential. Walkable to all the fun spots in town.

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
