Veronika und ich haben uns sehr angenehm und offen von Gordon aufgenommen gefühlt. Er war sehr rücksichtsvoll und großzügig. Auch die gute Verbindung zu Fuß zur gesamten Stadt war sehr attraktiv für uns. Gordon gab uns sehr gute Tipps zum Essen, Ausgehen und Besichtigungen in Cork und der näheren Umgebung. Wir würden wieder hierher kommen, wenn Cork auf unserer Reiseliste steht. Vielen Dank Gordon und alles Gute.
Gordon è stato molto gentile e disponibile! Ci ha dato molti consigli e ci ha persino invitati al pub a bere qualcosa!La stanza era carina e pulita e si affacciava sul fiume quindi in una zona davvero centrale ma allo stesso tempo tranquilla ! È stato davvero un piacere essere ospiti di Gordon e se ritorneremo a Cork sappiamo già dove alloggiare!
Gordon was an excellent host. Easy directions to his place and good explanation of the ins-n-outs of the place. His flat was clean and tidy and well located to the centre. Some breakfast supplies were provided which was nice of him!
Our room in Gordon's apartment was absolutely perfect for our trip. The location could not be better; it's just steps away from Cork City Center. Gordon is a wonderful host. He is exceptionally kind, ready to answer all of our questions, and quick at responding to Airbnb messages. He even provided us with our own section of the refrigerator stocked with bread and butter and cereals. We felt at home right away. I would definitely stay here again! Thank you, Gordon, for providing us with such great accommodation for our stay.
We stayed with Gordon for about three days, and his hospitality was lovely! Very well kept apartment with great accessibility to the city centre. Gordon was a very generous host. I would recommend his place to anyone just passing through or staying longer.
