Elm ville House, Cobh, a stately mansion, over looking the harbour, dates back to the 1850s sailing days when it was built by the British Admiralty. It has been extensively renovated. Our room #5 was a good size, heated and had excellent lighting, compared with some other B and Bs. There was a shared TV and coffee making lounge, as... More

Host Olive was excellent, welcomed us and sat and talked about our trip and our next destinations, providing information of things to see and directions. The location of the B&B was a nice walk into Cobh town centre. Accommodation & breakfast was 1st class. Recommend a stay if in the vicinity.

We booked two nights in Elmville as we were attending a wedding in Fota Island resort and couldn't afford to stay in the hotel. The place is in a superb location, walking distance to pubs, restaurants and shops. The rooms are comfy and clean. Olive is a lovely hostess and couldn't have been more helpful. I've read other reviews where... More

Sadly we only had one night at Elmville with Olive as the whole house and wonderful hospitality offered just added to our fantastic time in Cobh. The house was stunning and we really would not have found a better place to stay as a family of 7. Olive was a great hostess who could not have done anymore for us,... More

My daughter and I couldn't have dreamed of a nicer place to stay while in Cobh for 2 nights. The home and grounds are absolutely stunning! Our hostess, Olive, was such a delight. She made us feel right at home the minute we stepped through the door, taking us on a tour of the house and answering our questions. She... More

Ignoring the fact that Olive had forgotten about our reservation, the house is beautiful and superbly located. Unfortunately, we could not enjoy the house as the bedrooms are in the basement. Whilst they were very clean and comfortable, they were cold and the view is limited to the grass. Breakfast was good but the toasts were offered at the very... More

This was was a lovely B&B with nice sized rooms that were exceptionally clean. There was a nice guest lounge with coffee, tea and cookies. This is located at the far end of Lower Road from downtown, but it is an easy walk to the center of town. You can walk along the road or cut down to right along... More

We chose this B & B from trip advisor reviews, and we found that it is just as nice as everyone says. When choosing this house remember that the bedrooms are all in the lower level -- not quite a basement, just a lower level with windows. The room at the front of the house is especially nice with a... More

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
