Self catering in Cork City at Christmas

Greetings from Atlanta!

We will be traveling to Ireland for the Christmas holidays. We will spend that last few days in Cork City before getting our daughter settled at UCC where she will be studying for the spring term. We would like to get a self catering apartment. There are 5 of us. We would like to be close to UCC so our daughter can become familiar with the area.

Will it be possible to get a self catering apartment for less than a week?

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Hi Patti.

I have stayed in 2 apartments in Cork, the 1st one was at Northgate House Apartments at 25, Kyrls Quay (at the top of North Main St) they have 1 & 2 Bedroomed Apartments to hire. With the 2 bedrooms you have a choice of having one with either 1 or 2 Bathrooms in it, they are very nice apartments very clean rooms. It would be a 15 minutes walk to UCC from there.

E-Mail : northgate@eircom.net

The 2nd Apartment I stayed in was at Garnish House which is 2 minutes walk across the road to UCC. But I do know that they have a House across the road from the Main House which if you booked early enough ( they get booked up very fast) I know would suit you & your family you would have the whole house to yourselves but as I said it gets booked early for Christmas. Here is their website check it out :


E-Mail : garnish@iol.ie

Good Luck with your search & enjoy your Christmas In Cork.

Another one in a good location would be http://www.collegeview.ie/. I have no knowledge of their quality but they seem to have a connection with Killarney House, also on Western Road and comes in at #26 of 47 among Cork Hotels.

Also have a look at this one. It's a few mins walk from UCC. Acton Lodge is a guesthouse but they have one self catering cottage on the grounds and it looks very nice.
