We arrived at Bella Vista--and found the parking-very hard to find a good spot, as there were unusual parking areas that could damage the car underneath if you went too near a raised bank, and we were told that we could park on the main road!! would not feel our car safe there however, so parked the best we could....

Spent a long weekend in The Bella Vista Hotel & couldn't have wished for better location. Amazing view over the harbour & a lovely place to just walk around. Lots of places of interest right on the doorstep & only 30 minutes into Cork City. The staff definitely get top marks, they couldn't have been anymore helpful or pleasant. The... More

My friend and I travelled from Canada to Cobh for the Lusitania memorial and stayed at the Bella Vista Hotel. From the moment we set foot in the door, it was more like going home than staying in a motel in a far away country. The owner Kevin Murphy greeted us warmly and personally took our suitcases to our room.... More

The Bella Vista is not a bells and whistles type of hotel but it IS a very comfortable, bright and welcoming establishment. I shared a large 3 bed room with a couple of friends this weekend and while the room was a bit worn it did have a lovely view, enormous bathroom with an excellent shower and free WiFi. On... More

We stayed as a family in one of the self catering suites and the children were thrilled with their 'little house'. Everything about the place is lovely, from the friendly staff (who even ran out to get safety pins for me), and... More
