Cobh is a 25 min train ride from Cork and the hotel is a 6-7 minute walk from the train station. The hotel faces the harbor across the street from an attractive public park alongside the water. The rooms are large enough, especially those facing the harbor, with views and light well worth the extra price paid. The rooms are comfortable, attractively furnished, although with dated furniture, the bathroom properly fitted out and well supplied, and good hot water. The several floors of the hotel are served with only one elevator, which can only provide for three adults without luggage at a time. It also serves as a utility elevator for the household staff who will be shifting clean/dirty linen and suchlike. The hotel is well maintained throughout, but keep well in mind the age and history which will explain some perceived lack of modernization by some. The breakfast is excellent, served buffet style in a dining room and served by very helpful staff. The bar is a congenial, chatty place, small, with a larger adjoining area for sitting and eating. The food is basic, sometimes good. There is a dining room in the rear of the bar area, more formally laid out and with a broader menu. If there is heavy rain, the dining room will suffice to save the trouble of going out elsewhere.
