Spent 3 days at Cobh in this wonderful B&B. Olive is most charming and helpful, the house is beautiful en well maintained. Breakfast is abundant and very tasty, served in a very atmospheric room. A quiet place, located within walking distance of the lovely town center of Cobh. Nothing to complain about. Will surely return here.

We ended up making a reservation at Elmville at the recommendation of another B&B owner who was unable to accommodate us at the last minute. From the beginning, we had difficulty contacting the owner on the Internet to make and confirm our reservation. After 3 attempts to contact her through her site on the web and not getting any response,... More

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay here in May - loved it and also the town of Cobh. Olive is a wonderful host and has a beautiful house not far from the downtown - a short walk along the water. The delicious breakfast was served in a beautiful room with candles and music. I hope to go back again... More

The B&B accommodations were just perfect, and the hospitality provided by the owner, Olive, could not have been more cordial and accommodating. The B&B home is really quite luxurious. Highly recommend this site.

This B&B is in a grand old home. It's located on the harbor and is within a short walk from the White Star Museum and the Cobh Heritage Center - very conveniently located. The only reason it doesn't get a higher rating from me is because it had the weakest shower I've ever had.

My friends and I stayed with Olive for two nights and when we didn't have the cash to pay for our stay she offered to drive us into town (we didn't have a car) so we could get cash from the bank. She was also very helpful in pointing out what to see and where to eat in Cobh. I... More

Olive and Elmville House set the bar high for B&B's. The home itself is grand and beautiful. Olive's attention to detail (candles and soothing music at breakfast!) is second to none and her hospitality is amazing. When we arrived too late to drop off our laundry at the launderette in town, Olive insisted on doing it for us! She is... More
