This was my favorite hotel on our trip through Ireland. We had a two room suite on the water with a deck where we happily drank wine and watched the sunset. The service was excellent and breakfast was good. This town was so charming and our morning walk to the cathedral was beautiful. I would definitely come back here.

Popped in here earlier this week after doing the Cork Harbour Boat tour. The inside of the hotel is great with many nautical items of interest. Food is most excellent with a good choice on offer at a reasonable price and view of the harbour from the terrace is ace.

Nice hotel, really nice if you are on the water. We were not but friends were and you can watch ships come in, which was cool. Breakfast was very good. Wish it would have gone just a hair later...10:30/11 am. Eggs Benedict is a must! Overall good hotel and very conveniently located.

Waters Edge is many ways, flatters to deceive. It has a very good location on the seafront by the cruise terminal and on paper looks ideal for that short stay in Cobh. Our check in was fine and as 2 couples, we got one room overlooking the water and the other opposite, overlooking the street. We initially thought we had... More
