Where is it?
Our area is one of the oldest communities in Cork City and just round the corner are a pharmacy, deli - Aveen's cupcakes are unreal - five pubs! a local shop - where Katie always has a smile - and a butchers. All of these are within 200 yards so you can live a complete life in the city without a car if you wish.
Cork City Centre is a ten minute walk where you have a fantastic nightlife, great restaurants and shopping. Lonely Planet 2012 describes the city as "Chock full of great restaurants fed by arguably the best foodie scene in the country" and says of the county: "Everything good about Ireland can be found in Co Cork".
A 15-minute stroll gets you to St Finbarre's Cathedral while University College Cork is just another ten minutes further on.
Further afield to the South West is Kinsale (half hour drive), home of the gourmet festival and renowned for its restaurants and Old Head of Kinsale Golf Club. While to the East about the same distance is the world famous Ballymaloe Country House where Myrtle, Darina and Rachel Allen make everything "simply delicious".
Schull, Bantry and Ireland's most westerly point Mizen Head are 90 minutes west while Blarney is only 10 kilometers away on the way to Killarney which is about an hour and a half's drive.
Other cool places are Cobh - the Titanic's last port of call (30 minutes), Crosshaven - home of the oldest yacht club in the world (30 minutes), Glengarriff, where legendary actress Maureen O'Hara has just opened her film centre.
If you are into Golf then aside from the Old Head there are 10 championship golf courses and a pile of others within 45 minutes drive, while the legendary Ballybunion, Lahinch and Waterville links are all less than two hours away.
