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

Loved our stay in Cobh

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely property that was well equipped. Fantastic views over the water.

Property was very clean, beds were comfortable. While there was a TV in the Master bedroom, it could have used a second TV in the one of the other bedrooms as we were 2 couples traveling. Ken was helpful and available for question.

There were some very good restaurants in the town, Gilbert's Bistro, the Titanic and the Waterside

I would highly recommend this beautiful apartment.

Owner's Response: Hi Ann, So glad you enjoyed your stay at The Waterfront Penthouse and we're delighted to hear you liked Cobh so much as well. The question of TVs in every bedroom is a difficult one as we frequently have families with children staying who prefer not to have them in the bedrooms but we'll take soundings from our future guests to see what the general consensus is. We hope to see you again at some time in the future. Ken & Mairead Andrew.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our stay in Cobh! Not only was Ken amazing with his correspondence, but he was so helpful and kind upon our arrival. The apartment is the most amazing place we've ever stayed in Ireland! You cannot beat the view and the apartment itself is clean, updated, and super comfortable. The pictures do not do it justice! We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Cobh. My only regret is that we didn't spend more time there! Thank you again for everything Ken!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to review The Waterfront Penthouse in Cobh and we're delighted you had such a great time during your stay. We think the view is pretty special as well - it looks out of the mouth of Cork Harbour and for many Irish emigrants who left to travel to the United States it was the last view they saw before seeing the Statue of Liberty in New York harbour. We hope to see you again soon in Cobh.

Perfect Location-Clean & Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic penthouse in a perfect location close to shopping, restaurants and pubs! Gorgeous views all day and night. Everything was clean and fresh when we arrived. The penthouse is very spacious, well equipped and furnished with everything we needed. Ken, Mairead & their son Conner met us upon arrival and were all extremely friendly and helpful. They also made a point to let us know that they were just a phone call away if we needed anything (which we didn't). We took day trips all week long to area sites and made it back in plenty of time to relax before bed! This is the perfect home base for your Irish vacation/holiday! Thank you Andrew family! We've had a wonderful time and would highly recommend your lovely penthouse! - The Galloways (Merritt Island, Florida, US)

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to review our property and we're chuffed to bits you had such a great time at The Waterfront Penhouse in Cobh. We're glad the great location was handy for the many interesting things to see and do in the area and you also found time to play the famous Old Head of Kinsale golf course. And the weather was also vaguely like Florida during your stay too ! Come back soon.
