This bnb is by far the best place you can stay in Cobh & i've stayed in many, including The Commodore Hotel. The views from the rooms at the front of the property are quite spectacular, especially if a cruise ship is in port, as the rooms offer an unobstructed view of the entire harbour. The location is excellent, almost... More

B&B owner was very nice and accommodating. Had us fill out breakfast cards and had it ready when we all came down to eat the next morning. Breakfast was included--which seems like a given but we actually stayed at a couple B&Bs where the breakfast wasn't included. The first thing you notice right away about this place is the view....

We received a very friendly welcome. The breakfast was extensive and lovely with very friendly service. The room didn't match our expectations and the bathroom was incredibly small. The location was close to the Titanic Exhibition and a superb restaurant named Windmill

We've been very warmly welcomed by Tracy and her son. Got tea and biscuits. We could choose the room we want and we really enjoyed this wonderful place with harbour view. The breakfast was delicoius and freshly made. It was perfect with an infant. Got everything we needed.

We had no reservations. This was suggested by another B&B owner. Got there, friendly greeting, tea and cookies were brought up to our room in just a couple of minutes. Had a wonderful view of the harbor. Offered great advice on where to have dinner that evening. Room was spacious, bed was comfortable. Close to the center of town. Great... More

We have enjoyed hour time at the Ardeen. It is on the hill in Cobh with a fantastic view over the harbour. The breakfasts are excellent, rooms clean/tidy and it has a great feel to the place. Tracey is a fantastic host. Reccommend to stay, great place.

Had a great stay at the Ardeen B&B in July '13 for two nights. Tracy was a fantastic host and the breakfast was one of the best of our trip. Our room was on the top floor with an unbeatable view of the harbor and the ships coming in and out. I'd highly recommend this b&b.

Nice rooms with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Just some minutes walk into the city center, next to the Titanic museum. The breakfast was one of the best on our last Ireland trip. We had a nice view over the harbour out of our window.

our stay at Ardeen was fantastic. Tracy greeted us and provided tea and cookies, and also helped with our luggage. The rooms were very nice and comfy with a great view of the sea from our window. There are a lot of stairs, so might not work for some. Also, the town is very hilly and walking is a necessity.... More
