Ken and Mairead were absolutely lovely to deal with. Very welcoming and stayed in touch prior to the let and answered all our questions. The apartment with out doubt if absolutely fantastic, the beds are so comfortable, the showers were amazing, everything is of a high quality. The views over the harbour are second to none and at night the apartment is so peaceful. Based on the edge of town, this is a lovely location and close to all shops, The Titanic and other amenities. Highly recommend and would happily stay again.
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!
Ken and Maraid were great hosts, stocked fridge with Guinness, milk and chocolates - the three essential food groups. Penthouse lovely and clean, spacious, extremely well equipped with a stupendous view.
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.
Apartment and view fantastic, beautiful town, lots to see and do, can't wait to return. Thank you Ken
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!
