“A fantastic apartment with breathtaking views”
Reviewed 1 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The apartment was even more gorgeous than the photos and the views of the sea a constant delight. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and beautiful. A complete delight. Thanks Mairead and Ken!

“Fully recommened - a gem in Cobh”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this wonderful penthouse for one week in August, and I can truely recommend everybody who wants to stay in the Cork-Area to consider this apartment. We were 5 people (4 adults and one child), and we had more than enough space, as there are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen / living room area, a small cabinet for the washing machine & dryer, and of course the terrace overlooking Cork Harbour. Almost every day we were greeted by big cruise ships or cargo ships, which were quite a sight.
The apartment is spotless, nicely decorated, everything you need is there. It's very centrally located, all the restaurants, pubs and supermarkets are within walking distance. It is also very quiet, no noise that will disturb a good nights sleep (which is very important for me).
What made the stay even more enjoyable were Ken and his wife, who not only offered us lots of adivse and recommendations but also you can tell that they care about their guests and that their stay is nice. We stayed in several apartements during the last years, but this was the first were we found kitchen essentials like salt, oil, mustard, tea, coffee etc. readily provided, furthermore laundry detergents, dishwashing liqudis and more. We were even more impressend when we discovered a lovely bouquet of lilies provided by (I guess) Ken's wife.
Overall, an thoroughly enjoyable stay in Cobh, if we come back some time we will definitely stay at this Penthouse again.

“Lovely comfortable apartment, the sun terrace is fantastic”

The apartment is great. I travelled with two teenagers and my husband. It is large, quiet, and well stocked. The sun terrace is a big plus as we spent many afternoons sitting out and watching the ships and boats in the harbour. Boys my boys even appreciated the view and i have great holiday memories of spending time out there chatting. Cobh is great and we enjoyed the live music on the weekend as well as the church bells playing classical or traditional irish music, very clever and all heard from the sun terrace.
Ken was away when we visited and the woman who showed us the apartment was not welcoming or helpful so we had to muddle through. I think a list of shops, where the bins are, how to operate the oven would have been more useful. We were also given one set of keys and i had to go to the car park to pick up bin liners when we got there.
We had a lovely time despite this start and would like to visit Cobh again stay in Ken's apartment as he had been great throughout the booking and obviously takes great pride in his apartment. Well worth the money and would recommend to a friend.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

It looks like one of my group has already reviewed this once, but I just want to reiterate how stunning and well situated this apartment is. Cobh is a lovely place to visit and the standard of this apartment and its view were 2nd to none.

It was easy to travel around County Cork from this location and it is a very easy journey from the airport. I would definitely be back.
