We detoured to Cobh - driver's back was in spasm (me).. Turned into the first B&B we saw.. what luck! The place is amazing. Modern, spotlessly clean with a hostess with the mostess. Olive was a delight, ultra helpful. Breakfast was fabulous - hospitality was great. Only downside... B&B rooms are in the basement of a glorious old house (mansion).... More

I booked Elmville purely on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. This is a beautiful house situated on the harbour shore and a very pleasant 10 minute waterside walk to Cobh village. Olive is a warm and friendly host - also very patient guiding us to Elmville via repeated phone calls after our GPS failed (it can be... More

We were recommended to Elmville by the tourist office when we arrived in Cobh so had no prior booking. It was the last night but one of our trip to Ireland and was definitely the highlight of our accommodation experiences. Guest are accommodated in the downstairs area where access is by a code operated electronic pad so no worries about... More

We were in Cobh for a family party. I booked Elmville on the strength of reviews on Trip advisor and we were not disappointed Olive is charming, friendly and welcoming in that particularly Irish manner. The house is splendid and dates from Victorian times when the British Navy had a base in Cobh and the officers all had fine houses... More

This is the nicest B & B I have visited in all my travels. Olive is the perfect hostess and her home is beautiful and impeccably maintained. We really enjoyed Cobh and benefited from Olive's advice on what to see, dining suggestions, driving directions and all. Emville was recommended by a friend who has stayed there several times, and I... More

The house itself might be beautiful, but since the guest rooms are in the basement, you do not get to see much from it. We had to wait half a hour before someone arrived to let us in, and were not impressed by the rooms. Being in the basement, the view is either a wall or a lawn, and nothing... More

Stayed in the Elmville House in July 2014 - Olive (Owner) runs a beautiful property with stunning views over Cobh Harbour. The has been lovingly preserved and is very fine example of the Victorian era's décor and design. Breakfast was a wonderful experience - hosted in the beautiful formal dining room. Overall - a great place to stay, great people,... More

Breakfast excellent and we enjoyed conversations with other guests around the big table too. All in all a... More

A friend of mine recommended Elmville to us and so we had originally booked this place to stay, but due to unforeseen circumstances our arrival was delayed by a few hours. Olive was unable to stay up for our after midnight arrival, so arranged for us to stay at another B and B in Cobh, (Knockeven House). There was no... More

We had a fab welcome from Olive and could not have asked for a better stay! She's an absolute gem and nothing is too much trouble. The Victorian house is totally immaculate and clean and tidy. Breakfast was lovely and there is plenty to do around Cobh. I would highly recommend Olive as you cannot be treated any better in... More
