“Top Class Accomodation, Stunning Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 for a stay in July 2013
people found this review helpful

This was our first time in Cobh, and the penthouse looked good in the photos although we were one of the first groups to stay there, so we didn't have any reviews to go by. All I can say is that this is one of the most well finished, well located, comfortable and enjoyable self catering accommodation in Ireland.

The apartment has 3 large bedrooms (one with ensuite), another bathroom, a good sized living/dining/kitchen area and roof terrace that overlooks Cobh bay and Spike Island.

Firstly the standard of finish throughout the entire apartment is high quality - wooden floors, comfortable beds, all high quality fixtures and appliances.

The beds are of good size and very comfortable, with bedside tables and large chest of drawers in each bedroom. Every room was well lit and had wonderfully wide windows so you could wake up and look out onto the bay.

The bathroom had a powerful and hot shower, is very tasteful and modern in design and also brightly lit including an illuminated mirror.

The kitchen has a full hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, full sized fridge and freezer and oven with all the utensils you would need. There is also a beautiful hand made high level table so you can sit high when eating to enjoy the view whilst eating your dinner (although the weather was so good we ate out on the terrace).

The living area has a flat screen TV with freesat, two big comfortable sofas and plenty of space. Oh and there is the all important Wifi wireless internet.

There are patio doors onto the roof terrace which had metal patio table and chairs that you could sit out and enjoy the superb harbour view. We saw a cruise liner, ferries navy ships and container ships passing through during the day.

One thing I must point out is that it is very quiet at night - it was very warm when we visited, nearly 30 degrees during the day and we had all the windows open at night to keep cool, and the place seemed to stay relatively cool but also the town of Cobh seems to be nice and quiet at night especially that end of town.

There is a car park at the bottom of the complex which is private, and there is a lift to get up to the 5th floor to get to the apartment. You do have to climb a final flight of stairs to get in.

Walking from the apartment to the centre of Cobh only takes about 5 minutes so it is ideally located.

All 3 couples raved about both Cobh and the apartment, we enjoyed it that much we stayed an extra night and are hoping to book again later in the summer.
