Where you’ll be

Cork, County Cork, Ireland

Main access road to West Cork only minutes away. Bus route with easy access to shops & local amenities 25m from house. WiFi & cable TV. Private parking available. Friendly host.

Clean, comfortable & friendly - just like home. Ideal location for attending the many events in Cork, such as the Kinsale 7's Rugby Tournament, Live at the Marquee, Cork Jazz Festival, early flights from Cork Airport and many more.

Located two miles south of Cork city centre, the suburb of Douglas has a population of more than 20,000. But locals say that, despite its size, it has a village feel.

Cork is all about sailing, and Douglas is within easy reach of the Royal Cork Yacht Club in Crosshaven, the centre of the universe for yachties.
Douglas RFC, founded in 1902, was one of the earliest Cork Rugby clubs and is well-supported by the locals.

Douglas has two golf courses - Douglas Golf Club at Maryborough Hill and Frankfield Golf Club, where there is also a range. There's also a pitch and putt club, and GAA clubs in the area include the Douglas GAA and Nemo Rangers hurling and football clubs. Nemo Rangers were historically associated with Turners Cross, but moved to a new location in the Trabeg area of Douglas in the 1990s.

Local soccer clubs include Tramore Athletic FC, Grangevale AFC, College Corinthians AFC and Douglas Hall AFC. Other sports clubs in the area include Douglas Tennis Club, Fr. Mathews Basketball Club and Douglas Gymnastics Club. Douglas Community Park runs parallel to East and West Douglas Villages, takes up a five-acre area between the two villages and is a fine local amenity.

Douglas is well-placed for access to the holiday towns and villages of the Cork coastline, including Kinsale, Schull, Baltimore and Skibbereen. Ballymaloe is half an hour away, and there are terrific restaurants, cafes and artisan food producers close by.

The East and West Villages of Douglas are home to numerous shops, supermarkets, pubs, boutiques, restaurants, and a five-screen cinema. Douglas has two shopping centres - the Douglas Court Shopping Centre in the East Village area, where the anchor tenant is Dunnes Stores, and the Douglas Village Shopping Centre, which spans between the east and west villages, and has branches of Tesco and Marks & Spencer. There's a weekly farmers' market on Saturday, with over 40 stalls selling local produce. In Cork City, the English Market is open all week and an excellent resource for foodies.

Due to the increasing number of fraudulent transactions online, a message from all guests wishing to book this listing is required to ensure it is a genuine booking. Any bookings received without a message may be cancelled within 24 hours. Thanking you in advance. Gems Place is a 4 bedroom property, 3 rooms of which are available to book, the 4th room is occupied by the owners, who are a working couple. We have also recently added a newly renovated apartment to the rear of the house which is completely self contained. We want all guests to have a restful and peaceful stay whether it be for work or holiday, to ensure this a curfew time is set and party goers are discouraged from booking. In addition all guests are requested to close doors quietly at all times but especially during the "quiet times" of 10 pm to 6 am. Check in times are set for 3 pm to 9 pm daily and this is an important fact that must be agreed to before booking as rarely late requests will be allowed. I'm a Corkonian born & bred so I know all the magical places to visit locally in what really is the true capital of Ireland. If there's anything you need to sort out during your stay, just ask, either myself or my partner, Brendan, we're here to help and to try and make your stay as enjoyable & hassle-free as possible.
