“Spectacular Views and outstanding accommodation”
Reviewed 5 November 2018 for a stay in October 2018

Our first time to Cobh and we were delighted with the accommodation. It lived up to the billing with out a doubt. located on the top floor with an expansive porch and spectacular views of the surrounding sea and town. The place was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We highly recommend it.

Cobh is a lovely town with a combination of small town charm and character and the flat is right on the edge of town for easy strolling into and out of town. The train station is a 15 minute walk along the waterfront and the trains into Cork run often and are convenient. This accommodation provides the best of both worlds; a small village with all it's charm and the large town experience of cork a short (30 minute) train ride away.

Hi Eric,
Thanks for taking the time to review The Waterfront Penthouse and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay.
We never got to meet as we were away on our own holidays but it sounds like you had fun in Cobh - as you correctly point out it's a nice friendly town with a big city just a short train ride away.
We hope to see you in Cobh again sometime.
Ken & Mairead.

Hi John,
Thanks for leaving a great review of The Waterfront Penthouse and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us.
Connie Doolan is a couple of minutes walk from the apartment - not many people know that some years ago it was put up as first prize in a worldwide competition run by Guinness which was won by an American who came over to run it for a while before selling it on.
It's cosy with a great pint and only a short stagger home !

“Fabulous, immaculate and stunning views”
Reviewed 19 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Just had a fab week in this wee gem. Stunning views from large terrace. Ample room for family of 6. Modern and spotlessly clean. We were warmly welcomed by Ken who was nearby if needed. Brilliant location and lovely Cobh right on the doorstep. Would definitely recommend it. Thanks Ken.

“Spacious, well-equipped with a beautiful view over the bay.”
Reviewed 7 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We found the Waterfront Penthouse a great place to stay. It is clean, spacious and well equipped with a beautiful view over the bay and is a stone's thow from the town centre. The beds were extremely comfortable and all bedrooms were a good size, especially the master bedroom, which has an ensuite bathroom. Being supplied with necessities such as tea, coffee, milk and a variety of condiments and spices was a nice touch and much appreciated. It also has off-street parking.
The owner, Ken was most helpful, pointing out the local restaurants and pubs, and promptly bringing round an odd item that we found we needed.

Hi David,
Thanks for taking the time to review The Waterfront Penthouse and we're glad you enjoyed your stay in Cobh.
The views from all the rooms are spectacular and the sun tracks right across the front of the apartment throughout the day.
Even in winter the sunrises are fantastic - so we're told !
Hope to see you back again soon.
