There is a big balcony from which to view the whole range of boats from yachts to cargo ships to ocean liners. Cobh has an interesting maritime history and there are a number of interesting museums explaining the histories of emigration, the port and the Titanic. All are within easy walking distance of the apartment. There are decent restaurants and bars to choose from too. There are a number of other interesting places nearby such as Cork (easy train trip) and Kinsale. We had a good week here but the condition of the block which the apartment is within and some of the nearby buildings was disappointing. A lot of refurbishment needed by those concerned. If only they were done up to the standard of Ken & Mairead's holiday accommodation! The owners were friendly and helpful. The apartment was clean, comfortable and tidy - if a little spartan in decoration. Suggestions for minor improvements would be to 1) provide better and more comfortable outdoor furniture for the spacious balcony and its terrific views across the harbour, 2) new/better towels. Overall though definitely recommended.

The feeling of being at a very special place started with arriving there. This Cottage is run by Ann and Brian in a very "private-professional" way. There are a lot of small things making the time real good. And of course, the house itself is lovely, there is a beautiful view all over Cork, it is a short walk down town into a very nice City. We enjoyed our time and would come back to Blarney Cottage if coming back to Cork. Dear Ann, dear Brian, keep on going like you did up to now. Peter and Doris from Hamburg Germany

It is a family-friendly place, where you can forget your stressfull everyday life. Only a small disatvantage ist the fact that the kitchen is not well equipped, if you want to prepare proper meals.
