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. There is no breakfast provided.
If you would like to experience a friendly Cork home at a fair price get in touch! Hope to hear from you soon.
FEMALES & COUPLES ONLY
June/July/August, min 2 nights at weekends (Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday).
Look forward to hearing from you!
You will access to the full house when both myself & my son are out. But we would like the living room available to us when we are home.
Interaction with Guests
If I am at home I would be more than happy to give recommendations. Sorry, there is no breakfast provided, but you are more than welcome to use the kitchen.
The proximity to everything is the charm about the area, 20min walk to the city centre, 3min walk to the Lough, 5min drive to Cork Airport, 10min walk to UCC & just off the South Link motorway.
Walk, bus or drive.
No smoking in the house or no pets.
Cathriona was really nice, tho we only stayed for one night. Nice daughter and very cute granddaughter!
My sister and I had the most pleasant and comfortable stay at Cathriona's. She and her son, Andrew, were helpful to no end, and the house is just lovely. We had our own very inviting room with a great bed and desk, and also enjoyed the bright, spacious kitchen. We were perfectly satisfied, and would highly recommend Cathriona's place to anyone who needed a place in the area.
Cathriona was a great host. She was very responsive, and made sure we had all the house details prior to our arrival. We just missed the house the first time past (it's on a corner) but after that it was always easy to find the house and parking. The house is very cute, and the best part was the bed. The bed Cathriona has for guests is so comfortable. We had trouble getting up! There is also a very nice park near by if you're interesting in going for a walk. If you're looking for a comfortable quiet bed in Cork I recommend it!
After some confusion - mainly on our part :) - my friend and I found Cathriona's home with her help. She wasn't home when we were there but was extremely approachable and helped out with all our problems. Her home is cozy and a about 30min from the city center on foot - easily manageable and on the way you pass the local lough and Fin Barre's Cathedral.
Cathriona was a fantastic host! The room was perfect for our stay, clean and comfortable. We got lots of much appreciated suggestions of places to visit and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Cathriona had accepted my request but ended up not being there the weekend that I was supposed to come. However that didn't pose any problems, she emailed me instructions on how to get into the house and left instructions for other things as well. She is a very trusting woman and my mom and I had a good time in Cork. The bus was nice and close to her house as well to get into the city.
The bed was quite comfortable and the house is located in a quiet neighborhood.
Very welcoming. Room was nice and large. Easy and organized instructions. I would easily recommend it to friends.
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
