David and Angie's nineteenth century elegant Victorian house is located in a secret garden twenty minutes’ walk from the historic centre of Cork City, a European capital of culture, boasting an energetic artistic community.
The house itself has a welcoming atmosphere with beautifully decorated rooms in the period style, spacious and comfortably furnished.
Angie is a visual artist painter with a studio in the city while David a Chocolatier has his workshop studio in their garden. So while you sit, relax and listen to bird song within the walled garden after a day visiting sites, it's possible to indulge in a little chocolate tasting with a complimentary glass of wine.
ln the morning before heading out for a day’s sightseeing, a hearty breakfast is served in the garden room.
Both David and Angie are very informative about their city and will provide information on current arts events, historic attractions and good restaurants. Within walking distance from the Marquee for summertime music events, the house also serves as an ideal base to explore Cork county and neighbouring counties.
