Family home in quiet cul-de-sac in Cork city

Our spacious family home is newly renovated but keeps the charm of the original house. It offers all modern conveniences such as gas hob, central heating, two bathrooms, 4 bedrooms. If cooking is your passion, we are well served by independent grocery shops featuring local produce. We are located in area bristling with culture which boasts a Hurling pitch, a Gaelic football stadium and local rugby club. We are within walking distance of the Cork Marina and a 10km reclaimed rail-line which is now a mecca for walkers, runners and cyclists. Our house is located in a cul-de-sac of 8 other homes. We are adjacent an excellent bus service into the city centre and also link easily to routes to West Cork, East Cork, and Kerry.

Cork city centre is a 10 minute bus journey or 30 minute walk away and has been identified by the Lonely planet guide as one of 10 cities in the world to visit. Cork was also the European City of Culture in 2005. In 2014, the Huffington Post said Cork was one of the overlooked European cities that you must visit in your lifetime. It boasts an array of museums, coffee shops, churches, heritage centres, pubs, restaurants, live music arenas, sporting venues; to suit all ages and interests. The scenic Wild Atlantic way is on your doorstep as is the beautiful, gourmet town of Kinsale.

We have fast fibre broadband with free WiFi and Chromecast. We will also provide a DVD player and our book and DVD collection are there for you to enjoy. We have two children and will have toys, books, jigsaws, colouring pencils, paints etc on hand should they be needed.

We are new to home exchanging but had a wonderful first exchange in 2016 and are keen to repeat this experience. Our neighbours are there as a support should you need advice or just a friendly face and we'll provide a detailed house guide with lots of tips on how to make the most of your stay.

About Our Family

We are an active family of four who love spending the weekends outdoors in local parks, woods and beaches (as we move into summer). We are cycle enthusiasts and benefit greatly from a wonderful local cycle-way. We love entertaining and cooking and are lucky to have wonderful local produce on sale in independent grocery shops near us.

We are within a short drive of many beaches. Garretstown in West Cork is 40 minutes away and is a surfers' paradise in the summer. Garryvoe in East Cork is 45 minutes away and caters for young and old with it's beach front promonade, miles of sand and swing park area.
