Chemical free/ eco friendly house. Your room has a comfortable double high bed with fresh bed clothes and bath towels always.
Castlemartyr village has the famous Pat Shortts Pub,which recently became the hunted hog, but boasts it's the best after wedding venue in cork. Lovely food and drink to be found inside. Then there's the beautiful hotel/resort which do a lovely breakfast if you feel like treating yourself, and the green woods for long walks. Your room in our house is after being upgraded with a luxurious extra deep Millenium deluxe double bed and soft cotton bed clothing, very well illustrator with wooden furniture. We are as chemical free/ eco friendly as possible so be sure that you won't be surrounded by nasty chemicals in your room, using our cutlery, kitchen, or soaps and shampoo in the bathrooms. We have made sure that you don't have to spend an extra penny to follow our way of life so we provide you with natural products for personal hygiene, soap bar, natural deodorants, shampoo and skin humectants if needed.
Our son is 2 and we are expecting another in December! Don't know if it's a boy or girl yet so all very exciting. We also have a lovable house dog named Diesel who enjoys a lot new visitors, a garden where my husband is constantly working to build the perfect pond and retreat for the birds; and my kitchen where you can enjoy good and interesting meals.
As any other home with kids, it can be messy at times, but we make sure that the sharing areas are tidy and clean all the time.
We are very keen to Rudolph Steiner's ideas (Waldorf education) therefore you might find our home a bit less noisy than any other home with kids since there's no use of TV, radio, battery toys while our son is awake.
As you might know, Ireland's best reputation is its green sceneries thanks to the rain :-D so we use the halfway upstairs to dry out clothes, hoping that doesn't bother you, we welcome you in our home.
new power shower,
clean bed clothes
That is completely up to you, in the past we have played board games with guests, gone for walks, lots of eating out and take aways. And sat and watched tv together. Then other guests like to stay in the room and work all day, which is completely fine. Each guest is different,
We do make a big emphasis on the products we use to clean the house in general and personal hygiene. We try our best to be as chemical free/ ecofriendly as possible and we appreciate that you follow the rules in order to keep our home and common air free of nasties. The use of aerosols, sprays, after shaves, lotions is highly contaminant to our home environment, so please avoid the use of these products at least while here.
We might be able to drop you to the city in the morning if you wish to make some tours, we can pick you up from Cork airport as well in your arrival, as long as we are not working or busy with Kai.
We will be more than happy to invite you to discover the surroundings with us during our free days.
We are very easy going, we just ask not to lose the key to our house. As we live in a small quiet neighborhood, we will appreciate no noise at night time.
We don't like the use of toxic chemicals in our house, no aerosols, bleaches, hair dying products, perfumes or after shaves; if you are planing to use them we kindly suggest to use something else or ask you to do it outside home.
We provide you with laundry soap if needed and we would like you to clean after cooking if using the kitchen. This most consists of putting your things in the dishwasher so it's really not that bad.
Also we make emphasis on turning off lights when not being used.
For long stays, please keep clean your room, and occasionally empty the dishwasher, as we said we don't charge cleaning fees and this is our home, we trust you will leave your room and the house as you found it first time.
Hello! We are a Mexican-Irish family and we love getting to know people, places and their stories.
I enjoy a lot cooking and painting, while my husband enjoys fishing and gardening; Kai our baby enjoys people in general, bird watching and playing with Diesel our dog; while Diesel enjoys bird watching, eating from Kai's food and running around the house like mad.
These all together makes our home a very pleasant place to live in!
As guests or host, we respect privacy and we enjoy quiet time a lot, but if you want to have a chat and eat with us daily, we will as well love it!!
