In the morning before heading out for a day’s sightseeing, a hearty breakfast is served in the conservatory.
Both David and Angie are very informative about their city and will provide information on current arts events, historic attractions and good restaurants. It’s an ideal place for exploring the Cork region and neighbouring counties.Within walking distance from the Marquee for music events.
Hands on chocolate courses can be arranged where you can make truffles or your own personalised creations and learn the secrets of the chocolate world, can be arranged with prior notice.
No smoking in house
David & Angie are extraordinary hosts and went out of their way to be sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our visit to Cork. Their home is like a record of all the thought and care that have gone into the 25+ years they have spent living there. The amenities are perfectly suited to accommodate many different kinds of travelers, considering that they offer two private rooms, each with a single and double bed respectively. Their 3 adorable dogs make great company! The breakfast in the morning is offered in a beautiful, light-soaked studio and was one of my most memorable meals in Ireland. It's a lovely walk into town from their place and my only regret is that I didn't have more time to spend enjoying the atmosphere in this wonderful home.
We loved staying with David and his wife in Cork. The house and grounds were beautiful and we really enjoyed getting to know each of them better. They were very helpful in recommending restaurants and places of interest in town.
A wonderful return to David and Angie's B&B in Cork. They truly go out of their way to make you feel welcome and I had a great few days - leaving very chilled out and relaxed
David and Angie were absolutely wonderful hosts! Their home is beautiful, the accommodations very comfortable, and the location is ideal to travel around Cork and the surrounding areas. We really enjoyed our chats, and Angie even showed us around her studio, which was a real treat. We would recommend David and Angie's house without hesitation for anyone traveling to the area!
David and Angie made us feel welcome when we arrived. Even though we got a bit lost finding the place David called us and patiently walked us through the directions. They have a lovely home which is on a busy street but back far enough to create a quiet little garden oasis. Upstairs room tastefully decorated with antiques and art. We very much enjoyed our conversations over tea and chocolate. The location was close enough to downtown for a quick drive to have a nice dinner in one of the many good restaurants there.
Amazing experience at David and Angie's B&B! They were really lovely and friendly. Helped me find my way around the city and made the yummiest food. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would readily recommend to anyone! The house was beautiful and cozy but also very spacious. The room smelled fresh and the bed was really comfortable. Thanks!
