“We chose Ireland, and more especially Cork, for our first exchange experience and were very lucky to have had such a great home, perfectly situated. Edel and Conor's sunny and charming home is a perfect location to visit County Cork (and Kerry which is not too far). The house is located on a very quiet street and we really liked the big and sunny family room. Our children of 5 and 8 loved the place too(and the 2 hens) and had plenty of toys to play with. Edel and Conor made us feel very welcome and left a lot of information about the area, plus we had the chance to meet them twice and we hope to stay in touch for long. They (and their children) were responsible and respectful house sitters and our house was in very good hands with them!”
Edel's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We have just come back from a wonderful stay at Edel and Conor's house. They were very nice and helpful and the house was very cosy and comfortable. Being able to walk into the city of Cork and being at the same time very close to the countryside was a great advantage to our stay. We do recommend a swap with Edel and Conor!”
Where is it?
Our home is situated in a quiet, leafy area and offers easy access to lively Cork City with excellent shopping/markets/festivals/live music/nightlife/quality restaurants etc. We can recommend food, activities and entertainment based on your interests and tastes.
25 minute walk into the city but we are also on a bus route. Car recommended in order to access the countryside. A car swap can be discussed. We have an automatic Honda Civic with two child seats (from age 2 up and up to 12 years).
Nearby attractions include – Fota Wildlife Park; Blarney Castle; Blackrock Castle Observatory; Glucksman Art Gallery; Crawford Art Gallery.
Very nearby there are attractive parks, playgrounds, walks, cycling trails, public swimming pools, a golf course and children’s soft play areas.
We are ideally situated to explore the beautiful coasts and mountains of West Cork; East Cork; Co. Kerry; Co. Waterford and Co. Tipperary. We are a 35-45 min drive from a range of beautiful beaches and picturesque towns (e.g. Kinsale, Crosshaven, Cobh, Clonakilty) and 1.5 hour drive from a range of magical locations (e.g. Baltimore; Killarney; Mizen Head; Ardmore; Mount Mellary etc.). Again we are very happy to recommend places to stay, eat, walks or beaches in our favourite places.
