This was our first time in Ireland so we really didn't know what to expect.
From Cork Station it was a short and really fascinating train ride to Cobh -
riding along by the beautiful natural Cork Harbour.
On arrival in Cobh we walked the short distance form the station - Watersedge is placed superbly next to the station!
Adjoined to the station is the Emigrant Memorial/Titanic exhibition hall - housed in the old station itself.
The staff were welcoming and we were very pleased with our room (#2).
It looked out at the back onto the harbor waters and it was easy to imagine the Titanic moving past this spot to the mooring in the harbor.
The room itself was neat, clean and comfortable with the usual tea/coffee making and the ensuite shower was clean and bright.
We had a meal in the bar which was fairly priced and which was of good standard.
The breakfast bar offered a wide range of options - a house special omelette was simply wonderful and the Irish breakfast was appetizing and full.
(How could anyone think of lunch after that?!)
The staff were always helpful and we had breakfast in our room one morning which was delightful.
The town of Cobh itself is just a short walk away and we walked there one evening - taking in the Lusitania Memorial, the church on the hill and the richly flowered surroundings - many hanging baskets which added charm to this beautiful town.
The local people we spoke to were friendly and welcoming - as indeed we found wherever we went in Ireland.
We are so pleased that we chose Cobh and Watersedge itself - a lovely and memorable visit!
We would like to come back to Watersedge in the summer when to sit out on the deck at the back of the room would be surely wonderful
