Only 5 minute walk to the train station. 30 minutes from Cork City by train or car. Cobh is a favorite port of call for numerous cruise ships from all over the world. House and famous 'deck of cards' street is on the cover of the 2012 Lonely Planet Ireland travel guide.

Cobh (formerly Queenstown) is a beautiful seaside town in County Cork and is steeped in history. It was the last port of call for the Titanic and still maintains that original pier. Visitors can participate in the Titanic Experience and visit the museum. Cobh was also where most immigrants left Ireland to begin their journeys to the new world and has a wonderful Heritage Centre highlighting this era. Assistance in genealogical searches is avaialable at the Centre. A short train ride away takes you to the beautiful historic Fota House and Grounds as well as the amazing Fota Wildlife Park where the animals run free.

If you are looking for breathtaking scenery this is the place. Short walks will take you to the waters edge and beaches and to beautiful rolling hills displaying the famous Irish 40 shades of green. Sailing, harbor boat trips and sea angling excursions are available. If golf is your thing the Cobh Golf Course is minutes away or in an hour or less you can be golfing in the spectacular Fota or Old Head of Kinsale Golf Courses. A short train and bus ride away and your at the famous Blarney Castle where you can kiss the Blarney Stone and get the gift of the gab! Many events take place during the year including commemorations of the Titanic and the Lusitania in April and May. Summertime includes the South of Ireland Festival of Piping and Drumming and the Cobh Peoples' Regatta. September brings the Blues Festival and the International Sea Angling Festival and October boasts the world famous Cork Jazz Festival.

By car you can take many day trips from Cobh to explore the beauty of Ireland. You are only only 1 1/2 hours away from the quaint town of Killarney and the Killarney National Park. Killarney is minutes away from the amazing Ring of Kerry which is a beautiful drive through the mountains.

The majestic Cliffs of Moher are only 2 1/2 hours away as is the beautiful seaside town of Dingle and its famous dolphin Fungie!

“This was a very commodious stay in a house and town full of character.”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2018

This beautifully maintained old house is located in a town of great historical interest. When I first visited this town in 1970 I found that the melancholic atmosphere was compounded somewhat by a down-at-heel appearance. It is good to find that most of the town has smartened up a good deal. On the other hand the melancholy atmosphere, thanks to the association with the Titanic disaster and the departure point for countless emigrants, is what gives the town its character and many points of interest. The Titanic Centre provides an interactive experience without being excessively morbid, and the memorial gardens are tastefully arranged. The cathedral dominates the town and it is interesting to note that its gothic architecture gives evidence to its association with the Pugin dynasty. Those of us no longer in the first flush of youth find the steepness of Westview something of a challenge, both ascending and descending. This writer's neck, with its wear and tear, was not assisted by the rather uncomfortable pillows, so the delights of blissful somnolence were not easily forthcoming!

Charming, spacious, comfortable house, which was perfect for a family get together. It was fully equipped with everything needed for our stay. The location is perfect, right in the centre of Cobh. Fiona was fantastic, quick to respond to all requests and flexible, which was a bonus! We would come back again for sure!
