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

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

A very nice place with a few rooms. This B & B can be strongly recommended. Friendly and heartily welcome and a fabulous breakfast in a dining room that is worth seeing. We praised especially the bread that was served and when we checked out we got the recipe with oss.10 minute walk to the center of Cobh where you... More

Just got back to Chicago last night, after yet another visit to Elmville House July 31 and Aug 1st. I found it by accident in April 2013, then went back that Sept to treat my sister, and now again after a few weeks with mom in Donegal, I couldn't go home without another visit. This is, without a doubt, a... More

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
