Everything is as described: big comfortable room, nice and clean toilet and shower room.
A very welcoming family, that took good care of us, and gave great restaurant and bar recommendations.
We had delicious breakfast, even with fresh made, healthy and delicious juices.
Anna met us upon arrival and the rest of our stay we were greeted by her parents, Mary and Dan. We cannot stress enough how much we loved their home, their hospitality, or their conversation! Mary *loves* a chat, and we were more than happy to get to know her over our three days there! She made us chia seed pudding every morning for breakfast and wasn't short on amazing stories and conversations during our time there. By the time we left we'd almost forgotten that Mary was an Airbnb host and not just one of our favourite Aunties! Their home is historical and enormous, and we felt very comfortable in our room. Not badgered at all. We were free to come and go as we please and stay for a yawn when we'd like. The house is an easy walking distance to anything in Cork City you'd like to see --it was perfect for us! We would love to stay here again next time we're in Cork to see more of the city (and to eat at Cafe Paradiso!) and we'd happily recommend this place to our friends! Thanks, Mary, Dan, and Anna!
We spent a very good time in the house, Mary was very welcoming and tried to help us to make the best of our trip. The house was really nice and the bed very comfortable and we had a very nice breakfast overlooking the garden, I will definitely recommend it!
This is a beautiful Georgian house in the Cork City, within walking distance of the city centre and very near UCC. Mary and Dan are perfect hosts and very helpful and hospitable providing good restaurant recommendations . Had a very enjoyable time and safe and secure parking also available on site.
Lovely home and we were made very welcome and given great tips for where to go and what to do. With a location as ideal as this one you'll have no trouble!
We didn't get a chance to meet Anna but Mary and Dan made us feel very welcomed. The house was great. It's only a couple minute walk from all the restaurants and shops. Mary gave us some great recommendations on where to eat and what to do.
Anna and her father provided a very comfortable bed, in a warm house at a great location. I was only at the house for a short time but felt very welcomed. I would stay here again the next time I'm in Cork.
