“Beautiful”
Reviewed August 4, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

It looks like one of my group has already reviewed this once, but I just want to reiterate how stunning and well situated this apartment is. Cobh is a lovely place to visit and the standard of this apartment and its view were 2nd to none.

It was easy to travel around County Cork from this location and it is a very easy journey from the airport. I would definitely be back.

“Perfect”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Cobh Ireland is already my favourite place in Ireland. It has the most interesting Marine history including the Titanic story. This Condo has one of the best view's over the ocean, just breathtaking. It was fascinating to watch the sail boats, ferries, cruise ships sail right by our patio and this Condo was built for the view. Every room looks out at the water.
The place is in mint condition and the owners have impeccable taste. The Kitchen is nicer than my own at home. Every amenity was available and we did cook in some nights. The town of Cobh is full of great pubs and restaurants, both fast food and gourmet. The grocery store is right across the street and has a great selection of wine and beer. We did have a little trouble with the fridge but the owner brought a replacement right away. His wife placed a beautiful bouquet of flowers upon our arrival and they lasted until we left 9 days later.
The owner had us call him to meet up and get the keys. There were 6 of us and only 2 sets of keys which did cause a little challenge. 3 sets would have been better but considering what a wonderful time we had, that was no big deal. Thank you Ken for all your advise and helpfulness. We really felt welcome and comfortable. Your place helped make this one of the best vacations and a once in a life time family get together with very memorable moments. We would recommend your Condo and found the rate to be more than fair. Location, Location, Location...... it has it all.
All the best to you and your wife!

“Awesome views!”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Very spacious and clean flat that overlooks Cobh Harbor. The washing machine and dryer were a savior while traveling across Ireland! We could not have found a better place to stay in Cobh. Within walking distance to anything downtown, very reasonable pricing, and great views! Thanks!

You cannot find a better place anywhere in Ireland! The view is amazing and the apartment is super clean and ultra comfortable! The pictures do not do this place justice. Ken was so accommodating and friendly! We will definitely be staying here again in the future!

“May be the single best holiday location in all of Cobh”
Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The Penthouse was better than advertised. A great space with a terrific views of the harbor and town. Clean, bright, comfortable and quiet. Just a short walk from the town center - pubs, restaurants and rail station.

The owner, Ken, is very friendly and accommodating. He made us feel at home and was very helpful with information on the town.

We stayed in the Penthouse for 2 weeks. We met great people - the pubs were friendly, warm and inviting. Even bumped into Ken a few times.

We will be back!
