“Nice house in great location”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
1
person found this review helpful

The house is an older but very charming building, on a beautiful street, and mostly renovated to good condition (although there are some smaller pieces that need more work if I'm being picky). The location is fantastic - right in the town - and we had two seniors who managed the gradient of the street (~11 deg) and stairs in the house (although this would be an issue for anyone with walking-related disability). There is a lot to do in the town (museums, harbour tours, heritage centre, etc.) and it is close to Fota Wildlife Park and Cork city. Great time and would do it again!

“Lovely, Comfortable Irish Home in an Excellent Location”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

person found this review helpful

We just returned from our stay in Ireland. I traveled with my two sons, their girlfriends, and my aunt and uncle. This 4-bedroom home served our needs perfectly and it provided us with plenty of living space that was not only lovely but also very comfortable and clean. The entire home is neatly decorated with four nice bedrooms, two on the second level (along with a large bathroom) and two on the third level. The bedrooms at the back of the house provide a wonderful view of the cathedral. The living/dining room provided us with an excellent gathering place in the mornings and evenings, unlike a hotel. The kitchen is very neat and tidy with all necessary appliances (except a dishwasher, which we didn't mind at all). There is also a small half-bath on the main level.

If you are looking for a place only a couple of blocks away from the Cork Harbour, this home is in the perfect location. As you walk out the front door and look to the left, you can see the beautiful harbour and a lovely archway that leads to the main downtown street, full of various businesses, a grocery, restaurants, and, yes, Irish pubs. After visiting the downtown area, you may find the walk back "home" a bit challenging as it is a steep, uphill walk, but we found it fun and invigorating! Great exercise! More businesses, a grocery, and pubs are located up the hill and over a block or two from the house.

I loved working with the owner who provided us with many tips and recommendations. We loved our stay in this home and would definitely consider staying there again if we ever get another opportunity to visit this lovely town (and country). I highly recommend this home for families or a group of friends/couples. Persons who are unable to walk up and down stairs should not consider this property as there is not a bedroom on the main level and only the half-bath. For those unable to walk up and down the steep hill, they can easily drive (parking is available on the street directly in front of the house) or take one of the many taxis available.
