Spacieux appartement indépendant du domicile de John. Bien équipé (lave linge & sèche linge) calme et à quelques minutes de voiture du centre ville
I had a wonderful last minute 2 night stay with my family in August- the place was clean and comfortable and plenty of heaters for chilly Irish mornings. Lovely location only minutes from Cork and with local shops very close by. My children loved the dog too. Would book again if in Cork.
The family were very friendly and helpful. House is perfect and is so close to cork City , maybe a 10 minute drive to ucc.
Le logement est bien placé pour accéder facilement à Cork mais aussi aux environs. Les explications de John pour trouver le logement étaient parfaites.
This was a last minute booking and John was very accommodating. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Location was good and easy to reach. Rooms were comfortable and the washer was a life saver. Would recommend to anyone wanting a roomy comfortable stay.
There's not a bad word we can say about this place. The place is simply amazing, in the middle of the forest in a very quiet residential area. Not too far from Cork, it's only a 10-minute bus ride.
Both of the hosts are extremely nice, friendly and helpful. We would stay there again!
We had stayed with John earlier in our trip, so the fact that we went back for another 4 nights says it all...John and his wife are very pleasant, warm and welcoming. You have everything you need here, and are about a 15 minute drive from the city centre. So, great location, great people--what more can you ask for?
