The best thing about this B&B was the owner who was the warmest, kindest, most hospitable and charming hostess I've ever met. A true lady in every sense of the word and very gracious person who went out of her way for her guests. The B&B experience was unusual in that the house is a period property and as a... More

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
