5/5 Excellent

A pleasant respite near Cork
My aunts and I were traveling throughout Ireland, partially as tourists, but also a pilgrimage to connect with family roots. This property was in the middle of our sojourn and was a great place to rest, recharge, do some laundry, order take-out, and chill while we watched Netflix. The entire property is very pleasant with a lovely garden front a back. We could each retreat to our own bedroom, or sit and reflect on the trip to date around the dining table, in the living room, or out back in the garden. While there, we had some minor questions..all were answered very rapidly via the VRBO ,messaging function. When I return to Cork, I will return to Nigel's lovely spot.

Lovely house near Cork
Nigel’s place was perfect for our family trip to Cork! The house was spacious with all the amenities we needed, including a large kitchen and laundry. The back garden is lovely, and it was nice to sit and look out the big windows. Access to the roads around Cork was really easy, and everywhere we went was just a short drive. I highly recommend it for any families needing space and comfort.

4/5 Good

Short Stay
Overall it was clean and tidy. Close to the ring roads with good access to city centre. Fine for short family stay suited us as we were all adults. The house is actually a ground floor accommodation with upper accommodation used by others via their own access. That wasn’t an issue for us as we were out most of the time. Enjoyed our stay very much.
