Mariele could not have been nicer or more aaccommodating. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a good stay in Cork. The apartment itself was small and a tad quirky. For example, the bathroom, although en suite, was down a short flight of stairs. But the bed was confortable, and having a washer AND a dryer was a huge plus, since we were in the middle of a five-week road trip and welcomed the opportunity to do laundry. The location was brilliant -- just a few blocks to the bridge to the city center.
