Having just read previous reviews regarding the property, I was amazed to think that I had been to the same place! Granted that the day we stayed was a sunny Saturday by the seaside, but we found it extremely difficult to park nearby and everytime a space opened up it was quickly taken. To be fair Michael was a welcoming... More

I stayed there 5 years with a friend and we had a brilliant time at Michael's B&B and knew I would be back when returning to Cobh. And here I am again and it is still a fantastic place where to stay, very well situated, a few steps only from the station and the tourist office and still close the... More

Michael is a very personable B & B operator. He made sure that our stay was great in every way. Fantastic view of the harbor, hearty breakfast to start your day, comfortable rooms, prime location, accommodating to food allergies...what more could you ask for! We also loved the generous lounge area to gather and meet others. We highly recommend this... More

We stayed one night here and everything was just perfect. Nice, clean and spacious rooms with a lovely little ensuite bathroom. The full Irish breakfast was good and served with a smile. The host was very friendly and ensured a good atmosphere.

The room had a lovely view from the top floor that overlooked the waterfront, and is centrally located so that you can park your rental car on the street for free and walk the town. The room was simple and clean as well as reasonably priced. The bed was comfortable and we had a good night sleep. Free wifi. There... More

The owners were friendly and easy to talk with. The bed was comfortable and bedroom was quaint. Plenty of room to move around. We were visiting off season and it was fairly priced, and conveniently located to restaurants and landmarks. A delightful place to stay!

Perfect location I think, across street from harbor and Tourist Info. but at edge of central town. We stayed 2 nights here, second in top floor room that looked out onto the harbor. Michael is friendly, a wonderful host and tries to please. Good rates and breakfast. Highest recommendation.

We definitely confirm what "24thIDTraveller", "wanderlusterYYZ" and "katmnz" wrote about this B&B. We very much enjoyed our stay there at the beginning of September 2015 and highly recommend it. On top of that we could park our car in front of the entrance, which was very convenient, and we could get glutenfree bread for breakfast.
