Paula and Ivan have re-set the bar for our future Aibnb experiences - they were PERFECT in every way: Responsive with directions and communication as we were arriving, and ever-so welcoming to us with their amazing energy and extensive knowledge and literature about not only Cork, but surrounding areas as swell. We truly felt right at home. The room was even more lovely than the pictures - literally, they'd just redone it - and it was equipped with a sweet flatscreen/DVD player for rainy nights we didn't feel like going into to town. Paula had a great variety of breakfast choices laid out each morning, and even lent us an umbrella.
All in all: Perfect. These guys are what make Airbnb truly great!
This was my 3rd time staying with Paula and Ivan and as usual it was perfect. They really go the extra mile to make me feel at home!
This was my second time staying with Paula and Ivan and they were extremely welcoming. My stay was very comfortable and they were very friendly hosts who went the extra mile to make me feel welcome. I was once again staying there because I was working in the area and the house was very quiet in the evenings which really suited me. Everywhere was clean and comfortable, I couldn't fault it at all.
This was the perfect place to stay for my trip to Cork. I was working in the nearby hospital on night shifts while I was there and Paula was so accommodating. She had left out a key for me for the morning of my arrival and gave me a choice of rooms. She had even spent time blocking out light from the rooms knowing I would be there sleeping during the day.
Paula and Ivan's home is lovely, the room was very comfortable, and I was really made to feel like I could make myself at home.
I wasn't visiting the city centre much but the location is handy for doing so, well served by bus routes. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone looking for somewhere quiet, comfortable and relaxed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Paula & Ivan. Paula greeted us with a pot of tea and inquiries about our day's travels. She provided maps and brochures of nearby sites and she is very knowledgeable about additional areas and how long it would take to travel the Irish roadways. Our bedroom was comfortable with all of the expected amenities and a few extras. They provided lovely soft robes and slippers as well as plenty of outlets for all of our phones and other electronic devices. They even thought to offer a heavier duvet for us poor Californians in the cool autumn weather, but the room was so warm and cosy that it was not needed. The house is close to central Cork and the short bus ride provides frequent service. Both Paula & Ivan are very friendly and willing to help with whatever you may need. I highly recommend them to anyone who is visiting Cork.
J'étais chez Paula et Ivan pour un week-end. Ils possèdent une maison très confortable, sans bruit avec un petit jardin. Les chambres sont super dans un quartier tranquille.
L'hospitalité de Ivan et Paula est immense ainsi que leur bonne humeur et le soucis de leurs hôtes.
Ce fut une belle découverte et un très bon week-end !
Paula and Ivan were fantastic hosts and we had an amazing time staying with them. They welcomed us warmly and gave us heaps of information regarding the Cork area and surrounds and getting around. Their home is very comfortable and well equipped and close to town centre and local amenities.
To top it off on our departure they provided great information on our next destinations.
Paula was also kind enough to drop us off at the airport which was much appreciated.
Couldn't recommend a better place for your stay in Cork.
