Great Location; Even Greater View!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, son in law and Grandson (16) and I stayed at the apartment week of June 2, 2018. Big, Beautiful terrace looking out over the water - just gorgeous view. The apartment was lovely. Equipped with just about everything you'd need, including washer/dryer. The owners are a lovely couple (he's English, she's Irish) - who were very accommodating. Since there were four of us with luggage, they lined up their local taxi driver for us, and also met us at the airport w/their car so we could all arrive in Cobh together. That was so thoughtful of them. They even told us what pubs and restaurants to go to, and all lived up to our expectations. We could walk to just about everything, including the train station so the location of the apartment was great. It was our first trip to Ireland, so we were left with wonderful thoughts of Cobh, the residents in town, and of our lovely hosts, Ken and Mairead Andrew. It was a great trip.

Owner's Response: Hi Linda, Thank you for your wonderful review of The Waterfront Penthouse in Cobh and we're delighted you had such a great time on your first trip to Ireland. Hiring a car is not always the preferred option of visitors from abroad who are apprehensive about Irish roads but it is perfectly possible to get around using other forms of transport as you proved on your busy trip. We do hope to see you again sometime and please bring with you the fabulous weather you enjoyed during your break in early June. Ken&Mairead.

We stayed in this stunning Penthouse Apartment from April 16th for 5 days

It’s was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in

The apartment it’s self is fitted to a very high standard with comfy beds , 2 lovely bathrooms and 3 large bedrooms

The views are breathtaking from every window overlooking the harbour

We were even lucky enough to see a cruise liner dock and 2days later depart

Ken was a very gracious host and is on hand to give advice or help if you need it

When we visit Cobh again we will definitely rebook this property which says it all.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, Thank you for sparing the time to review The Waterfront Penthouse and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay You arrived in a howling gale and left in glorious sunshine so you definitely experienced all the weather Ireland has to throw at you. And yes you saw the first liner of the season in port which was on a re-positioning cruise from its winter in the Caribbean before spending the summer in Europe. Hope to see you again soon. Ken&Mairead.

Wonderful apartment - stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, peaceful and carefree week staying here. The apartment had everything we needed to feel at 'home' and is kept to a very high standard by owner Ken. We were five adults and had loads of space. The harbour views are a definite highlight and the apartment is only a couple of minutes walk to shops, restaurants and tourist attractions.

Amazing views and beautiful, spotlessly clean apartment!

  • 5 of 5

There were initially three of us on this trip (myself from Houston, my friend from St. Pete, Florida and my cousin from Suffolk, England, but when we posted photos on Facebook, a fourth (another cousin from Suffolk) couldn't resist and jumped on a plane to join us! We loved the town so much that we spent most of time as locals, enjoying the beautiful walks and views from every part of town (okay, yes and the pubs which were delightful!). The apartment was so lovely with everything you need to cook a few meals in, which we did and a dishwasher, washer and dryer! There were at least 3 small grocery stores close by with everything you need! We recommend the Harbour Steak House as they were so lovely and went out of their way to make our meal very memorable! We bought a puzzle while we were there from a charity shop (only 3 pieces missing!) and finished it the night before we left. We left it for others to enjoy and put together! We loved sitting on the sofas putting the puzzle together in our spare time and gazing out over the view. We really enjoyed waving to all the cruise ship passengers as they past right by our balcony. And a special thank you to Ken who was so very welcoming and helpful! Ken, we absolutely loved our stay in this gem of a place in a gem of a village ad loved meeting you and want to give you a huge thank you for everything! We all hope to come back and visit you again!! We all miss the gorgeous views, amazing town and the lovely apartment....will dream of it for years to come!
