Double bedroom, share bathroom, kitchen and living room, only ten to fifteen minutes drive from the city.

I'm working as nurse in Cork city. In my spare time I do a lot of home cooking such as baking brown bread, scones white/brown and apple tarts.

I also keep myself busy when off work going to theatre, cinema and in the summer I visit marquee in Cork if they are bands playing that interest me. I also visit the Regional Park and the gym all of which are local to me.

    Es war ein toller Aufenthalt bei Elizabeth! Die Lage ist sehr gut und ruhig in 10min ist man zu Fuß in der Stadt (Ballincolling) ca 30min mit dem bus in der Stadt Cork. Elizabeth war sehr nett und hilfsbereit und das war sehr schön und gemütlich! Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit bei dir!!

    I was living with Elizabeth for four months. I got an opportunity to know more about the Irish culture in short period of time. She helped me to adapt with the people, culture , and city in easy way.
    As a person, Elizabeth is very kind, helpful and caring person. She never let me down during my whole stay in the house. She provided me with everything from buying a new bike to giving lift to go to the market or even university when it was raining. That was so helpful. Also she did her best to help me with my professional career.
    The room was double bed with attached bathroom. It was so cozy! I never expected such a room with cheaper rent.
    I felt as living in my own house. On top of that she was treating and caring so nicely that i never felt home sick during my stay there.
    So I would like to thanks a million for everything!!
    I wish her a healthy and happy life ahead. God bless!! :))

    The room was comfortable and I had access to the kitchen and living room. It was a very 'trusting' arrangement as I didn't actually meet Elizabeth. It was totally convenient in terms of UCC where I was attending a conference. Just two suggestions - the bedroom needs a key as there were other guests in the house and I would have felt more comfortable if I could lock the door and the window blind needs to be a blackout for insomniacs like me!

    When speaking with you I could gather that you were totally genuine, The majority of occasions I go with my gut instinct which is usually right.
    Thanks for your lovely review

    Séjour assez agréable, grande cuisine disponible. Cork à 20-25 minutes via bus et centre ville de Ballincollig à 15-20 minutes à pied.
