Peggy makes you feel completely at home in her lovely house. She is very warm and easy going and generously invites you to freely use her kitchen and sit in her garden. She also provides all you need for breakfast. The bus connection to town centre is very good and regular. Peggy even collected me the first night because i was a bit unsure about arriving in the dark. When i go back to Cork i would like to stay with her again.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Peggy is a wonderful woman. Highly recommend it!
Yes, I recomend it. A bit far from the center but You can get it in a 30 minutes walk. Rooms are clean and comfortable.
Peggy is very nice and I didnt have absolutely any problem during the stay.
J'aurais aimé avoir davantage de contact avec la personne:c'était le but de l'hébergement chez l'habitant.
Peggy is a great host. Her house is lovely, very clean and tidy. I appreciated very much being able to have breakfast as well. I recommend Peggy for anyone who is interested in visiting Cork. Thanks again Peggy. Liam
Peggy is very nice, friendly and sweet. This is my first time to book the homestay in fact. I am so glad to meet the best host in this first booking. I am so thankful to meet her with my friends because she is very helpful and let me feel so warm in Cork city. I would like to express my deepest appreciation for her help. I feel so comfortable with my friend to stay here during these days. Also, her place is excellent like the cozy rooms, beautiful garden, nice kitchen, etc. It is so close to city centre and you can go to there by walk or take the bus. Highly recommend everyone to stay here at Peggy's house when you visit Cork.
Peggy is decent lady, with lovely clean house. Nice kitchen also. You can walk in to the centar of Cork or go with bus(every 15min). Great stay.
Peggy is a great host. Her house is superb. If , ever, I need to book in Cork again,I would definitely choose Peggy's home.
Lo recomiendo. He estado un mes y todo bien.
A 30 minutos del centro de Cork andando. En taxi desde el aeropuerto son menos de 20 euros. El tema autobús está regular en esta ciudad pero hay parada cerca de la casa. Es pequeño pero es un lugar muy tranquilo. El Centro centro, en cambio, creo que puede llegar a ser ruidoso, porque es la zona de marcha y en esta ciudad alguna gente joven local llega a beber mucho. Hay un gimnasio que no está mal, y un supermercado muy cerca.
