The Waters Edge is charming, right on the water as the name implies. Its a product of Cobh itself, as the town is rather small and not well developed. IMO its the best hotel in town. Restaurant is good, and the service is good. Wi-fi is decent. Not the most updated of places, but nice. Good location.

The WatersEdge Hotel is a fabulous hotel. Spotlessly clean and very efficient. This is our second stay at the hotel and I quite simply have nothing negative to say about it. The rooms are beautifully decorated and have sea views (most of them) and the food in the restaurant is fabulous. The menu is limited but there is something for...

This is truly at the water's edge. When you looks out the window - it seems like you are on a boat. Conveniently located next to the Heritage Center. Big rooms - comfortable beds and linens, welcoming staff. Breakfast is the full Irish or order something else - all included. Lovely lobby with a fire to sit beside.

What’s not to like about the Waters Edge? We have just enjoyed our third stay here. It’s absolutely charming, is in a fantastic location, and staff are friendly and cheerful. There is limited underground parking but we have always been lucky enough to get a space. This time we got a room with windows on both sides so we could...

Stayed at Waters Edge Hotel April 2015. Beautiful location next to Cork harbour with a rich maritime history of Irish emigration as well set out in various interactive historical shows available in Cobh. The hotel is small with extremely limited public area space. There is no elevator. The dining room incorporates a bar and dining area. Decoration throughout is somewhat...

The hotel is in a great location, very central to Cobh and 1 mins walk from the train station. Our room had great views across the harbour. However, I imagine when some of the larger cruise ships are docked this will obscure the view. The general decor of the hotel is good but some of the furniture in the room...
