The Space

Hi from Cork, Ireland!
We have a double room with a king size comfy bed available. The house is 20min walk from the city centre, 10min walk from UCC, a short bus trip to Cork University Hospital. The house is modern, very clean and tidy. There is a large walk-in shower (shared). I'm chatty, social & busy in my early 40s. I enjoy a glass of wine but it isn't the place for party animals!
Parking available & on major bus route into Cork City & CUH. Linen & Towels will be provided. You will have full use of the house (except the living room when my son & I are home).
There are shops 2min walk - Supervalu & Lidl and the house is just around the corner from The Lough which is extremely picturesque. The Lough is a kilometer walk around it, it makes for a great place to go jogging or merely to feed the ducks and swans.
If you would like to experience a friendly Cork home at a fair price get in touch! Hope to hear from you soon.
Look forward to hearing from you!

Interaction with Guests

Lots of interaction will be available from both my son and I.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Cathriona's home is gorgeous, clean, and welcoming. She was wonderful to work with. We, as foreign travelers, had limited access to communication and even with that challenge Cathriona was ready and wAiting for us at her house. She recommended places to eat and have us much needed directions. If you're going to Cork and looking for a great place to stay - Cathriona's place in Cork is an excellent choice!

  • We had a great time staying in Cork with Cathriona. The house was wonderful, the bed really comfortable, and the location just a 20 minute walk from the city center. Cathriona was really sweet, very welcoming and talkative, and with great tips about what to do around town. Would definitely recommend!

  • Great quiet place very close to the city center (20 mn by walk). The bed was extremely comfortable and the house super clean.
    Cathriona was very caring and advised us some good restaurant in town but also a lot of other places to visit in the area.
    I would strongly recommend this place.

  • Cathriona's home was lovely. She was flexible with our late check in and very quick to respond to my messages. The bed was very comfortable and there were clear instructions in the room and sent through email about everything you need to know. There is a driveway which makes parking easier if you have a car. The only oddity was that there is only a toilet downstairs, which is not a problem at all, you just need to make sure to go before you set the house alarm. We appreciated that we felt secure. I would recommend this location to anyone wanting trio explore the County Cork. Thank you again!

  • Our stay was short but nice because it was close to both the blarney castle and the airport! Cathriona was nice enough to let us use her washer as well which we were thankful for!

  • Cathriona was extremely helpful in our planning of where we wanted to go during our stay in Cork. She made us feel right at home and was very accommodating. We would highly recommend staying here!

  • Cathriona and her son were excellent hosts. Their house is a ten minute walk toward downtown and it is very reasonable and well located. She was very friendly and gave us a ton of travel information, which we took into account, and were glad we did! The bed was comfortable.

  • Cathriona wasn't around the house when we arrived, in fact we did not meet her at all. She did, however, leave good clear instructions about every single thing we might have asked for. It's been a good, quiet stay.

    June 2014
  • We only stayed one night with Cathriona and unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to meet face to face. But, her home is lovely and we were quite comfortable. Everything was just lovely. Comfy bed, great shower, good location just outside of city center. We would recommend staying here.

    June 2014
  • We loved our stay with Cathirona! The bed was very comfortable, the walk to cork was short, and she was very welcoming. Our only regret was that we didn't get to stay longer!

Personal Assistant
I am in my mid 40's, very easy going and enjoy meeting new people. I have been doing Airbnb since the beginning of 2013 and love it. I work full time as a Personal Assistant, and like to keep busy in the evenings. It's just my son (Andrew) & I living here during the week, he will be gone on holidays for the summer months - June/July & August). My partner lives in Dingle, so I spend every weekend there but you are more than welcome to stay anytime. All house details will be sent well in advance. Any questions, just ask! Cathriona & Andrew
