We are a retired couple whose family are grown up and left us with a 4 bedroom detached house which feels quite empty now! We live in a lovely estate with a big Green area in front of the house. The town centre is in walking distance as is a bus stop. Lots of pubs and restaurants close by and also a shopping centre and cinema. Cork city is 10 km away

Please note that check-in is between 6 and 9 PM

    Well, this is a very late post first of all, so really sorry for this.
    We stayed with Owen and Pauline in June for 2 days and can just say that they are both wonderful, nice people. They welcomed us nicely, and we could feel the warmth. We liked our stay with them more than our usual stay at some hotel in Cork. Please do message them if you are visiting Cork and you will be amazed by their hospitality. Owen prepares nice breakfast every morning and can give you a list of activities you could do and spend time exploring Cork. House is beautiful and very well maintained!
    We will stay with them again given a chance
    Lots of love from – AC, Urvashi, Tara and Shriram

    Myself & my parents stayed with Owen and Pauline during our holiday to Ireland, they were very friendly hosts, willing to advice on places to visit & eat. The rooms were clean & comfortable, which is always nice at the end of a busy sightseeing day. Would defiantly stay again if I visit Ireland in the future, until then best wishes. Tina.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
