Cozy, Friendly, Spacious

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for giving our family such a great place to stay for our first international trip with two toddlers! Even though this apartment is well placed downtown, it is surprisingly quiet. Our kids (1 year and 3 years) fell asleep fine with little to no street noise. Ken and Mairead were so helpful in providing everything we needed for the girls, including toys and movies. The washer and dryer (and provided parking) were a real lifesaver for traveling with kids. Ken provided us with fun things to do with the girls that were close by and you are within an hour drive (or short train ride) of amazing sights.

A small grocery store (with post office) is a five minute walk from the apartment and if you need things like big packs of diapers, there is a Tesco in Mahon which was right in a mall if you also needed kids to expel energy on a rainy day.

We also recommend a short drive to Fitzpatrick's Shop (on the way to Cork) for baked goods and sandwiches for a day out. We got an amazing cake for our daughter's fourth birthday while we were in Ireland.

This was by far our best family trip to date. It was just like being home with amenities, but an experience none of us will forget. Perfect.

So glad we found this gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts, the Andrew's, could not have been more kind or helpful. The flat is immaculate, well stocked and includes a washer and dryer. All the furniture is new and modern and the views of the harbor are beautiful. Cobh is a scenic and quaint village with excellent restaurants and friendly people. Access to the nearby train makes getting around easy and affordable. We have a terrific stay. The host was even gracious enough to pick up us and return us to the train station!

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

First Thank you. Thank you for providing us such a picturesque place to stay. Thank you Malread for greeting us after our late arrival and providing breakfast items so the first morning we could sleep in and awaken to a hot breakfast without leaving the warmth of our penthouse apartment. Simply gorgeous views, impeccably clean, lots of room, and plenty of hot water. Additionally a great hub to see everything in County Cork and Kerry. Just a short walk to the Titanic Experience and the Cobh Heritage Center and numerous restaurants and pubs. Last but not least thank you for sharing your spirit and beautiful country with us.

Beautiful view, clean, quiet, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are true to the real thing. The apartment has a spectacular view and while the furnishings are minimalist, it was refreshing after all the hustle and bustle of travel. The apartment is clean and above all, the beds are comfortable. Ken is a gracious host. He is there when you need him, but not intrusive. We ate at Gilbert's in town and The Quay. Both were very good. Also, Rob Roy's is great for a pint and to listen to some friendly music. We did a day trip to Kinsale which is highly recommended. I recommend this apartment for its location, its cleanliness, and the view. Thanks, Ken for a wonderful stay.

Great harbour views

  • 4 of 5

This is indeed a spacious penthouse apartment with stunning views across Cork harbour. 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.

Owner's Response: Hi: Many thanks for taking the time to post a review of The Waterfront Penthouse and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay. On the question of outdoor furniture we have to take into consideration Ireland's unpredictable weather which isn't always as sunny as the week you enjoyed.As a result because the penthouse terrace is on top of the building and fairly exposed the furniture has to be robust.Anything else would get blown away. We change our towels for new ones once a year and we supply our guests with as many as they need for their holiday. We hope you can come back to Cobh again at some stage in the future. Ken & Mairead
