The L shaped double bedroom is 24' x 8' in total and includes wardrobes, bedside lockers, a desk and chairs. (See also our other double room for availability). There is a Bathroom (with bath, separate shower & toiletries) adjoining the Bedroom and shared by guests.
A generous self-service breakfast in the large Dining Room is included.
We have a child's crib/cot and a folding bed if needed.
There's plenty of parking space and the garden and woodland walks are lovely any time of the year!

The space

Our detached house is in a lovely quiet location just inside the Cork City boundary with the countryside on one side and the city on the other. It’s just five minutes by car from the city centre and five minutes also from the world famous Blarney Castle. The house looks out over the Irish countryside while at the same time is close to all city centre amenities and popular visitor attractions.
There’s plenty of parking on the grounds and bus stops are within a short walking distance.
We're very proud of our show gardens and woodland walks which guests are free to explore and enjoy.

Interaction with guests

If our guests don’t have a car we are usually available to collect them from the railway or bus station or from Cork City airport. We are generally free also to drive our visitors (who become friends straight away!) to the city centre or to Blarney Castle because these so near.
Because we are more or less experts on Cork and Kerry we can advise on the best things to see and do in this part of Ireland! We also help with private guided tours to any part of Cork or Kerry including Cork City, The Ring of Kerry or even a climb of Ireland’s highest mountain, Carrauntoohil.

Other things to note

A folding bed can be added to the room if three people wish to stay.

Declan and Marie’s place is wonderful. On the edge of the city and countryside so you get the best of both worlds. Declan was very welcoming and made us feel at home in his house. The Daisy room is lovely, with a very comfy bed and everything we could need for our stay. We’d definitely stay here again for longer to be able to explore more of County Cork.

You will not be let down by this place, it's even more beautiful in person! Hosts are so polite and welcoming, happy to help with navigating around and even provide a small handbook of all the best places to visit and eat etc. Beds are comfy and the place is immaculate, we'll be back :)

Our Hosts really looked after us. Declan went out of his way to make sure we found our way around Cork. He gave us plenty of background information to the area and some Irish history too. The area was quiet and the secluded garden great for wandering around. Fairly easy access by bus into Cork ( short walk). Interesting compact City centre.

Declan was an excellent host...very welcoming and had a great insight to Cork and surrounding areas. The accommodation was superb, spotless and really comfortable ...had a brilliant nite sleep. Even though I was only there on a flying visit I was made feel totally at home and at ease...the breakfast topped everything off to what was a brilliant experience. Will definitely stay again if in the area..

Declan and Marie were perfect hosts. Extremely helpful with directions and tips for sightseeing in Cork and beyond. The house is amazingly cozy, beautiful garden and to top it all up, the breakfast served in the morning is second to none. I highly recommend staying with them if you want to explore the region.

Marie and I are an active couple who play tennis and go hillwalking almost every week throughout the year. Our other interests include gardening and art – I'm a caricature artist (check out my Declan Malone Artist website). Our house is cosy and homely and we love to have people…
