I stayed in Geraldine's lovely home for three nights over the weekend. Geraldine's home is fabulous; bright, warm and very clean. The breakfast was generous and of very high quality (Geraldine's fried eggs are perfection itself). Geraldine is a gracious host, very friendly, informative and hospitable. The house itself is located off a quiet country road, 5 minutes from the city centre by car. I would recommend Geraldine's to anyone visiting Cork.
Our stay with Geraldine and her family was just perfect.
This is why we use airbnb, we encourage anyone looking for high quality place to stay in Cork, look no further you will be delighted, at a very reasonable cost.
Breakfast superb, spotless clean, lovely helpful lady.
FIVE STAR QUALITY .
Geraldine was an excellent host! Everything was perfect for our stay with a lovely bedroom and living space. Breakfast was amazing with cooked breakfast two out of three mornings! We were very well looked after and were given many good pieces of advice which we are greatful for. We would absolutely recommend Geraldine as a great place to stay for your visit to Cork.
I enjoyed very nice accommodations and very pleasant service/camaraderie at this B&B. I spent two days in Cork while doing some family heritage research and was very happy that I chose to stay with Geraldine. The room I stayed in had ample space for my needs and en suite bathroom along with ample community areas including a very nice kitchen. Along the way I met her kids who were very nice and helpful and Geraldine herself was very patient about answering my many questions.
The Good: Great house with wonderful modern rooms. Geraldine was the consummate hostess and always tried to make sure I was sorted out throughout my stay. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom and shower were adequate. Late night access was easy and I had no issues having my own car.
The Bad: Nothing.
The Mediocre: Only two minor issues: The location made initially finding the house a little difficult, but through several frantic texts Geraldine and I made it work. Also, the WiFi did not reach my room (which Geraldine was working on fixing.) However, the signal was fine in the common room below, so I was still able to get online appointments etc completed.
Geraldine and her family are great hosts who know how to be helpful without being intrusive. Her house is very nice, modern, and spacious. I would certainly stay with her again when in the area. This is right between a 4 and 5 star rating, so I wish I could give 4.5 stars. (I don't give out 5 star ratings often but she was very close!)
Geraldine is such a lovely, competent hostess.. she has a beautiful home and family and I enjoyed our conversations.. We even found a lost dog and she took it in, fed it and kept it safe. Later that day her daughter met a man while walking looking for his (that) dog!! I hope to visit Cork again and especially Geraldine!
Guys! Geraldine is just wonderful and amazing host. Geraldine's house is simply perfect place to stay whether you are tourist or totally new for Cork and Ireland and looking for a place to stay while looking for some permanent accommodation, like I myself. The most important thing that you got this feeling that you are home. The whole atmosphere of the house is just like that. Wonderful spacious room with ensuit and basically all you need, kitchen is just right place to be with your coffee and breakfast in the morning. It's just 10 minutes away from Cork by bus, so absolutely no problem with getting there.
Special thanks to Geraldine for being so nice, eager to help and so attentive.
I appreciate Geraldine as a host and very lovely person who really care about her guest and makes their stay incredibly comfortable.
Geraldine is a great host, and her house is wonderfull! It's ten min far from city center by bus, but it's worthy. The breakfast were really good!!the only small problem was the buses timetables, but the house and Geraldine are really recomended!
Geraldine was an awesome host! She was so kind to give us directions EVERYWHERE because we kept getting lost. Her house was nice and clean and breakfast was great. Thanks Geraldine!
It was an absolute pleasure to stay in Geraldine's home and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Cork area. Geraldine was really nice and personable and went above and beyond our expectations of a host!
Geraldine is a wonderful host, kind, friendly and willing to help. She gave us good advice! Her house is wonderful too, spacious, calm, with a garden. Our room had a private bathroom and a wardrobe. It was a great experience to stay at Geraldine's place!
