Period house in great location in Cork City, Ireland

 Hello there!  We are living in a lovely 100 year old terraced house in one of the best parts of Cork city. You won't need a car at our place. We are 15 minutes walk from the English Market in Cork city centre. All the pubs, cafes, restaurants, entertainment, culture, and shopping you could want are an easy walking distance. Our place is old, and not totally modernised. We like to retain the period charm and character, and to upcycle where we can. As you can see our house is close to the street - so the front of the house can be a bit noisy, but luckily we have a small private garden at the back to relax in. We are in the old, slightly gentrified South Docklands / Ballintemple area of Cork - a short walk to the River Lee, and the Marina Greenway. Cork city and all its quirky charms is on your doorstep. You don't need a car. But if you want to go further you are ideally situated to explore the south coast of Ireland and the wild Atlantic way. We are a couple - Mary (speech and language therapist) and Beat (IT-Analyst). Our children are grown up so we are free to roam for short weekends or longer breaks. We look forward to hearing from you. All the best from Mary & Beat

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Cork airport - 6 km

A lovely leafy diverse old neighbourhood a short walk from city centre. Very convenient for shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and everything that a city can offer. When in the city we prefer not to use a car. We enjoy to walk or cycle wherever we need to go. Our house is on the street, and we have some traffic noise at the front of the house. We are lucky enough to have a small garden to the front and back. The back garden is a nice place to sit out on summer evenings.
