This home has been in the family for almost 70 years. It was purchased by the eldest daughter for her parents after emigrating to America and was occupied by the matriarch of the family until her death at 101. The 'American grandchildren' spent most summers in the home living the carefree Irish existence and continue to travel back with their spouses and children to share their love of the home and the town.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 out of 5
I came across this place after our previous reservation in Cork ended up being a scam. Communication with the owner was quick and very helpful. We should have booked this place to begin with! It is maybe 20 minutes into Cork if you want to go there but this place is all we wanted and then some. Very unique place on a street that goes straight down to the water. The waterfront is maybe a minute walk and there is food and drink right there. I recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in this area!

LOVELY, COMFORTABLE HOME IN AN EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from our stay in Ireland. I traveled with my two sons, their girlfriends, and my aunt and uncle. This 4-bedroom home, which was accurately described on the website, served our needs perfectly and provided us with plenty of living space that was not only lovely but also very comfortable and clean. The entire home is neatly decorated with four nice bedrooms, two on the second level along with a large bathroom and two on the third level. The bedrooms at the back of the house provide a wonderful view of the cathedral. The front bedrooms have a view of a small park across the street. The living/dining room provided us with an excellent gathering place in the mornings and evenings, unlike a hotel. The kitchen is very neat and tidy with all necessary appliances. There is also a very small half-bath on the main level which is very convenient.

If you are looking for a place to stay that is only a couple of blocks away from the Cork Harbour, this home is in the perfect location. As you walk out the front door and look to the left, you can see the beautiful harbour and a lovely archway that leads to the main downtown street, full of various businesses, a grocery, restaurants, the Titanic Experience, and, yes, Irish pubs. After visiting the downtown area, you may find the walk back "home" a bit challenging as it is a steep, uphill walk, but we found it fun and invigorating! Great exercise!

More businesses, a grocery, and pubs are located up the hill and over a block or two from the house. In addition, Cobh is conveniently located for day trips to a variety of other locations, such as the Blarney Castle, the city of Cork, Jameson Whiskey (Midleton), Smithwick's Brewery (Kilkenny), Thomastown's Jerpoint Abbey, Waterford Crystal, Rock of Cashel, plus many more!!

I highly recommend this home for families or a group of friends/couples. Persons who are unable to walk up and down stairs should not consider this property as there is not a bedroom on the main level and only the half-bath. However, those who can handle the stairs but find the steep hill too challenging can easily drive (parking is available on the street directly in front of the house) or take one of the many taxis available.

I loved working with the owner who provided us with amazing customer service, along with many tips and recommendations. We loved our stay in this home and would definitely stay there again if we get another opportunity to visit this lovely town and country.

CHARMING - ALL THE AMMENITIES OF HOME.

  • 5 out of 5
Cobh is a friendly small town. Pubs and restaurants were terrific. The town is located close to many day trip destinations. We took several trips and were happy to have a home base to return to.
The house has old time charm while providing many modern amenities. The kitchen is fully accommodating to fix a feast. The bathroom is spacious with the best shower I have had in Europe.
The house provides the visitor the opportunity to do as much or as little activity to make your trip memorable.
Definitely enough room for a family holiday.
I would definitely return with friends and family.

LONGWEEKEND IN COBH.

  • 5 out of 5
Me and my family lived in this fantastic lovely house 4 days in beginning of april 2013. A spacious house for us which was 9 people. Galley equipment for cooking and all other standard that ensure a comfortable stay. We all loved this house and I recommend to rent this house that has a lot of history in itself. Cobh is a good base to stay if you want to discover the southwestern part of the beauty of Ireland.

Cheerful greetings from Thomas Bergman and her family from Sweden.

Cobh (formerly Queenstown) is a beautiful seaside town in County Cork and is steeped in history. It was the last port of call for the Titanic and still maintains that original pier. Visitors can participate in the Titanic Experience and visit the museum. Cobh was also where most immigrants left Ireland to begin their journeys to the new world and has a wonderful Heritage Centre highlighting this era. Assistance in genealogical searches is avaialable at the Centre. A short train ride away takes you to the beautiful historic Fota House and Grounds as well as the amazing Fota Wildlife Park where the animals run free. St. Coleman's cathedral is an awe inspiring example of neo-Gothic architecture dating back to 1868. The cathedral features a beautiful 49 bell carillon which is the largest in Ireland and Britain. If you are looking for breathtaking scenery this is the place. Short walks will take you to the waters edge and beaches and to beautiful rolling hills displaying the famous Irish 40 shades of green. Sailing, harbor boat trips and sea angling excursions are available. If golf is your thing the Cobh Golf Course is minutes away or in an hour or less you can be golfing in the spectacular Fota or Old Head of Kinsale Golf Courses. A short train and bus ride away and you are at the famous Blarney Castle where you can kiss the Blarney Stone and get the gift of the gab! Many events take place during the year including commemorations of the Titanic and the Lusitania in April and May. Summertime includes the South of Ireland Festival of Piping and Drumming and the Cobh Peoples' Regatta. September brings the Blues Festival and the International Sea Angling Festival and October boasts the world famous Cork Jazz Festival.

By car you can take many day trips from Cobh to explore the beauty of Ireland. You are only only 1 1/2 hours away from the quaint town of Killarney and the Killarney National Park. Killarney is minutes away from the amazing Ring of Kerry which is a beautiful drive through the mountains.

The majestic Cliffs of Moher are only 2 1/2 hours away as is the beautiful seaside town of Dingle and its famous dolphin Fungie!

In 1 1/2 hours you can be taking a tour of the Waterford Crystal Factory where they have worldwide shipping if you can't pass up making a purchase.

The whole area of West Cork is only a 1 1/2 hours away with awe inspiring natural beauty.

If you want to travel by train, make the 5 minute walk to the Cobh Train Station where you can travel to Cork and catch connecting trains all over the country.
