We really enjoyed our week in the Waterfront Penthouse in Cobh and was made to feel really welcome by Ken on our arrival.
The apartment has everything you need for your stay but of course the best thing is the fantastic view of Cork harbour. It was great just to relax and watch what was going on in the harbour but it was really impressive to see the huge cruise liners come to town, turn around and “park up”!
Cobh is full of history if you go out looking for it with a visit to Spike Island highly recommended. We also took a trip on the road train from outside the Titanic Experience which is also worthwhile. The driver is great and gives an entertaining commentary as you go around with loads of information about Cobh, many of the buildings and lots of history (and a few funny stories thrown in for good measure!).
Some parts of the town look a bit tired but try and look past that and you will be rewarded with some great places to eat and drink and some really friendly hospitality.
A family holiday with 4 '20 somethings' was always going to be a challenge!
Any worries I had quickly disappeared once we arrived at the Penthouse, Cobh. The owners have made this so visitor friendly, with everything that you could need in the kitchen, lovely fresh bedding and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The apartment is HUGE and there was plenty of space for everybody.
Cobh has lots of great pubs and the White Star Visitor Centre is a must if you'd like to learn more about the Titanic and it's passengers. Cobh is also a great base and we visited many places including Kinsale, Killarney, Blarney Castle, Cork and Garyluccus Beach to name a few!
We hope to visit again very soon :)
We just spent a lovely weekend at the penthouse. The accommodation is hotel standard - crisp white cotton sheets, fluffy towels, fantastic showers and tasteful solid wood furniture.
The real star is the view..never a dull moment watching boats, tugs, ferry and even cruise ship.
Stayed here last weekend . Beautifully appointed calm space .
The situation is fantastic with panoramic views of harbour , the terrace on a sunny day was idyllic.
