Elmville is a very elegant house and gardens on the outskirts of the main town. A warm welcome from the owner and the use of a pleasant basement room. No drink making facilities or TV were available within the room, although both were provided within a separate lounge. Wifi was available. Breakfast was adequate and presented in a grand dining...

Stayed here last weekend. The owner Olive couldn't have been more welcoming to her beautifully decorated and extremely clean home. Our room had a great view over Cobh harbour. A full Irish breakfast was provided and cooked to order, served at one large table so you had the opportunity to meet the other guests, so interesting.Olive does not accept cards... More

Beautiful Victorian house set in its own grounds. Excellent room which was nicely decorated and very clean. Wonderful breakfast which was served in the main diningroom. We will be returning the next time we are the Cobh area.

Olive is a really nice owner of Elmville, she does a great breakfast and makes you instantly feel at home. Rooms well furnished and very clean, comfy beds and views of the bay of Cobh. We were 4 ladies visiting our friend who lived in Cobh and we were able to walk to her house and back from Elmville. Truly... More

Charming B&B with the most welcoming host, lovely Olive O'Brien. Everything about this place makes you go back in time, as architecture, furniture and decoration are carefully selected to compose a perfect picture of Victorian times. Beautiful gardens to relax and appreciate stunning views of the bay complete the experience. First-rate location, near central Cobh and all the attractions in... More

The title of the review says it all. Our host, Olive, was delightful! Parking was easy right at the side of the house. Our room, although on the lower lever, was clean and bright. Breakfasts are served in a wonderfully restored Victorian dining room on the main parlor level and are plentiful and delicious. The fresh brewed pressed coffee was... More

We have just made our twelfth (I think) visit to this splendid establishment since Olive O'Brien took it over 17 years ago and it is, as always, the highlight of our annual holiday in Ireland. This is B & B with STYLE. You may find a B & B to equal this but we challenge you to find a better... More

This B&B is an old but very well-maintained Victorian home with a large dining room upstairs and rooms on the ground level. Our rooms were a bit more spacious and updated than most other B&Bs we experienced in Ireland. The owner, Olive, is a gem and was responsible for one of our best nights in Ireland, thanks to her pub... More

Beautiful Victorian home. Room was lovely, clean and well appointed. A delicious breakfast served in an elegant dining room. Our hostess, Olive, was gracious and very helpful. Town within walking distance. Would recommend.
