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

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
