Our home

Ideally located charming terraced home within Douglas village, the most sought after location in Cork City suburbs. The coordinates are: 51°52’ 40.71144”N 8°27’5.16456”W.

This charming terraced home is tastefully refurbished and is located a few minutes walk from Douglas Village, the most popular suburb of Cork city. The entire house is available to guests and comprises of: Upstairs - three bedrooms - two double and one single (which is quite small) and a bathroom with a spacious pump rectangular shower. Downstairs - modern kitchen with dishwasher and fridge-freezer, hob & oven and microwave. Dining- cum- living room. There is also a downstairs toilet. and washer/drier in a separate space outside the house. Outside there is a lovely walled-in patio to the rear of the house. Like the adjoining houses in the terrace, this house is best described as a family space or a space for busy colleagues to come back to after work to recharge their batteries. This is an exceptionally well-insulated home with instant hot water and gas heating. Some guests have commented on the quietness of the house while others have said that they can hear traffic outside on the road, beyond the terrace at night when sleeping in the front bedroom and this has interfered with their sleep. It all depends on what guests are used to and also what they are expecting.

Excellent free WiFi throughout the house. UPC service on large T.V. DVD player, radio. House alarm. Guests have access to all the amenities of the house for their sole use without disturbance during their stay. Breakfast cereals, milk, bread, marmalade, jams, tea coffee are provided. As well, guests are invited to freely take any of the other foodstuffs in the house, including the freezer.

Interaction with hosts can be as much or as little as guests want or need, given that they will have the house to themselves during their stay. The hosts are very flexible with regard to arrangements for arrival and departure and aim to please the guests at all times, making their stay memorable and happy.
