cork b&b - family friendly


my family and i (my husband and i, our 3 kids under 12 and my in-laws) are traveling to cork aug 18-21 and basing our stay here while we explore the surrounding area (kerry, kinsale, waterford). don't know if this is asking too much, but we are interested in a b&b that:

1. is in a safe area

2. has free/cheap/easy parking

3. easy to get in and out of to visit surrounding areas

4. spacious - not too cramped feeling

5. air conditioning?

6. walking distance to pubs, restaurants as we plan on frequenting while the gp watch ;)

i've read a lot of posts on this forum - so great. would the belvedere lodge fit this? fenroyd is booked.

thank you!

I don't know that I would want to stay in Cork City as a base for Kerry, that's a bit of driving back and forth every time you go out. You don't mention where in Kerry you're headed, but it would seem to make sense to stay there rather than Cork if that's where you're visiting. Waterford would also be about 3 hours driving, round trip.

I wouldn't expect air conditioning in a home in Ireland, not sure if you'd need it anyway, you'd be very lucky to have a day in Cork in August where the temp would hit 70 (Fahrenheit) for a high.

Just a thought, but why not ask this in the Cork forum for better advice.
