Great location. I was able to walk to all parts of the city centre and just outside. Very comfortable bed and lots of good information of what to do in the city when I checked in.

Eileen's place was excellent value and a great location with easy access to the city center and bus/train station. Eileen is a very kind and gracious host who even went out of her way to help return items that we accidentally left after our stay.

Eileen was a great host! She was flexible when ran late and didn't mind that we showed up later than initially stated. She also recommended great places for dinner. We would recommend her place to anyone wishing to spend time in Cork!

I am a friendly, honest, hard working, family orientated mum with three adult children...
My son finished a masters in financial economics & has moved to Dublin. One of my daughters is in final degree year & the youngest of my clann is an architectural student also at our lovely UCC university ..
I am a self employed beauty therapist. I live in a large Georgian house dating back to 1788 on 3 floors which allows me available accommodation.
In the past I was a host family for foreign students but since discovering this great agency my family and I prefer to meet new people on a more regular basis.
We try to make your journey and visit to our humble home in Cork a very pleasant and comfortable experience...
Looking forward to meeting you!
