“WOW!”
Reviewed June 10, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The ‘wow’ factor you get on entering The Penthouse just gets better when you turn into the living area and are treated to its panoramic view out over Cobh harbour. The owners have conveniently installed a custom-made Captain’s Table that ensures no-one misses out on the breathtaking sights that stretch out before you. Superliners breeze past the large open balcony area, accessed through French windows from the lounge, while dozens of other vessels ensure a constantly-changing panoply of sights. The ever-changing light adds to this sensational effect.
Peel your eyes away from the harbour action and you’re in very comfortable surroundings of white walls and wooden floors, with leather settees, a fully-fitted modern kitchen and three double-sized bedrooms, the master one en suite, and a separate bathroom. All are fitted out to the plushest standards.
The lift ensures easy access from either the ground-floor car park or street level and it’s only a five-minute walk into the heart of town, or a few minutes more to the fascinating Heritage Centre and nearby station - for a 24-minute train ride to Cork. While the Heritage Centre will give you a taste of Cobh’s colourful past, the harbourside Titanic Bar & Grill (inside the old White Star Line offices from where the ill-fated liner’s last passengers boarded) gives you an authentic flavour of the town’s vibrant present. Excursions to local hostelries like The Rob Roy or Roaring Donkey are also not to be missed!

Hi,
Many thanks for taking the time to post such a wonderful review of The Waterfront Penthouse.
The views are really what make the apartment so special for many of our guests and with so much going on in Cork Harbour it's a great place to while away the hours.
But glad you managed to venture out and discover two of our favourite traditional Irish pubs.
Come back again soon !

“Wonderful place, wonderful city, wonderful people”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This penthouse was wonderful. Breathtaking views everywhere you look. It was so conveniently located that all the restaurants and great pubs were just steps away.
Great Irish music and friendly faces at all our favorite pubs. If you want a true Irish experience I would strongly recommend you visit Cobh and if you have the opportunity, stay at this wonderful penthouse. The owners make you feel right at home. We loved it.

The apartment was even more gorgeous than the photos and the views of the sea a constant delight. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and beautiful. A complete delight. Thanks Mairead and Ken!

Thanks for taking the time to review The Waterfront Penthouse,Cobh.
It's great to know your family enjoyed spending the Christmas holiday in Cobh and you even had some pretty good weather for this time of year too,although not as nice as your home back in Spain.
We hope to see you all again soon.
