“Perfect Location !”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This is a perfect location. Perfect, coming from the train station, perfect to see the harbor ( just across the street). Great location to walk to city centre and have places close to eat and great pubs close to enjoy as well. Michael was a great host and helped us out with an early breakfast when we had to leave early one morning to catch a tour. We enjoyed relaxing in the TV room also. While we were there, it happened to be a day when there was a bag pipe band competition in city centre. What a sight, we loved it !!

In April, I was traveling with my daughter Had a wonderful stay in Cobh, much thanks to Michael! Upon arrival he offered to take our bags; our room was upstairs. He was so kind, warm and inviting- he even offered to drive us to a local place that had good music! Our room was large with 2 beds, and a perfect view of the ocean. Everything, including the en-suite bathroom, was spotlessly clean. There was even a telescope in the common room to look out over ocean or at the starts. We both slept wonderfully- comfortable beds. Michael made us a full Irish breakfast in the morning and good strong coffee to start the day. Very reasonably priced, and perfect location on the Cobh waterfront. Would definitely recommend!

This is surely one of the best B&B I have ever seen! Dear Michael, thank you for making my drem come true - I have always dreamt of waking up looking at the sea! The rooms are so cozy and warm, just like home!)) the sitting-room with a telescope is absolutely fantastic! The breakfasts are great! All the house has such an atmosphere of home comfort that it's very difficult to leave! Not to mention that it takes only several minutes to reach all the most important places of Cobh!
Thank you again for your care and kindness, Michael!

My friend and I stayed at this wonderful B&B in October 2013 for only 1 night. We had 5 days in Ireland, we spent 2 driving around it. This was one of our stops. I found this through Rick Steves' book and I confirmed the greatness of it through Tripadvisor. We went during an off-peak season, there was only one other person in the B&B. We stayed on the top floor which had 3 beds, 2 twins and 1 queen, the bathroom was en-suite and very clean. This is a great room for a family or to share with a couple of friends, as we did. We had a beautiful view of the water too. Oh, he also has a hair dryer, no need to carry yours. On the second floor was a sitting room, very big. You can coffee & tea and just relax watching the view.

Breakfast, an important factor for me, was very generous and delicious. Michael, the proprietor, is a quiet, professional and respectable man, he waited on us. He was also very prompt in returning emails.

I highly recommend this place. The location was perfect too. I'd stay there again, a little longer, it's so relaxing. Hopefully I'll get back to Ireland soon.

Location is excellent, especially for travellers like us who cone in on the train, it is mere minutes away from the station. We were met at the door and given a warm welcome. Our room, which was comfortable and spacious faced the ocean and the vie was superb.
The breakfast was very basic but tasted fine . Wifi is very poor and as we had reservations to make was quite frustrating .

If you want something central and near the train station this will work

My husband and I stayed at Ard Na Laoi and it couldn't have been any better. Mike was the perfect host. The location was ideal. We parked right out front and were able to walk to the museums and restaurants. I would definitely stay there again.

Directly on the harbor and a lovely place. Mr. O'Shea greeted us and we proceeded to the fourth floor (we had requested a good view of the harbor) up 55 steps, but worth every one. The room was very clean and roomy, the bathroom and shower great.

The B&B is within walking distance of the museums and the Cathedral. There are numerous restaurants and pubs to choose from and some great shopping as well.

We were able to watch the sunrise from our windows and it was awesome! The activities in the harbor were fun to see as well.

Breakfast was wonderful, again with Mr. O'Shea tending to our wants. I would definitely return and probably will next summer!!
