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.

Amazing views and beautiful, spotlessly clean apartment!

  • 5 of 5

There were initially three of us on this trip (myself from Houston, my friend from St. Pete, Florida and my cousin from Suffolk, England, but when we posted photos on Facebook, a fourth (another cousin from Suffolk) couldn't resist and jumped on a plane to join us! We loved the town so much that we spent most of time as locals, enjoying the beautiful walks and views from every part of town (okay, yes and the pubs which were delightful!). The apartment was so lovely with everything you need to cook a few meals in, which we did and a dishwasher, washer and dryer! There were at least 3 small grocery stores close by with everything you need! We recommend the Harbour Steak House as they were so lovely and went out of their way to make our meal very memorable! We bought a puzzle while we were there from a charity shop (only 3 pieces missing!) and finished it the night before we left. We left it for others to enjoy and put together! We loved sitting on the sofas putting the puzzle together in our spare time and gazing out over the view. We really enjoyed waving to all the cruise ship passengers as they past right by our balcony. And a special thank you to Ken who was so very welcoming and helpful! Ken, we absolutely loved our stay in this gem of a place in a gem of a village ad loved meeting you and want to give you a huge thank you for everything! We all hope to come back and visit you again!! We all miss the gorgeous views, amazing town and the lovely apartment....will dream of it for years to come!

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.
