Just great, like being at home. Both Owen and Pauline have behaved like the best hosts you can imagine: attentive, friendly, wonderful! They help me in everything and are attentive at all times. 100% recommended. As soon as I can I have to visit them again.
Owen and Pauline, thanks for all. Jose
Nous avons été très bien reçus chez Owen.Il nous a conduit au restaurant le soir de notre arrivée, et pour le retour il nous a encore aidés. Très bon accueil, sa maison est facile à trouver et le logement était impeccable.
Le petit déjeuner était copieux, rien à redire.
Pour le lendemain, il nous a donné de la documentation et des informations. Owen est un hôte agréable et nous avons bien échangé avec lui.
Nous recommandons vivement cette location.Quatre français en provenance d'une petite ville prés de la Rochelle.
(Nous mettons 5 coeurs pour dire que nous avons adoré)
Petit déjeuner au top , il se met en 4 pour vous servir
Accueil chaleureux, maison propre et confortable. Owen et sa famille sont aux petits soins, et pleins de bons conseils. Nous sommes très satisfaits de notre nuit passée chez eux. Un grand merci Marie Christine
My friends and I just stayed for one night with Owen and his wife, but we felt already like home. They are such kind and warm-hearted people, they make you feel comfortable from the very first moment. Their house is very clean and tidy and it has everything you need. And Owen made us an excellent breakfast in the morning, all I can say is that I simply highly recommend Owens home!!!

Owen is a pretty good host. His home is very clean and comfortable. André He makes a delightful coffee in the morning and a tea tonight. It was wonderful.
There really isn't enough adjectives in the dictionary to adequately describe how wonderful my stay with Owen. My friend and I had the pleasure of staying with Owen and his wife for one night, during our short stay in Ireland. Owen was so polite and lovely when we first met him, he helped us with our bags to the room and gave us a tour of the spaces. He kindly made us a cup of tea with biscuits, asked us of our plans and gave us each a Cork tour guide, even recommending particular places to go and sites to see. The morning we left, Owen made us a delicious breakfast, with a 5 star spread; eggs, toast, juice, fresh coffee, cereals. Would 20 / 10 recommend staying here! The location is perfect, not far from the city centre at all and is in a nice, quiet, neighbourhood. Wish we could have stayed there longer; will be staying there for sure on my next trip to Ireland.
Séjour très agréable des hôtes charmants que je recommande a tous
