Hi Des,
Glad you enjoyed your stay at The Waterfront Penthouse,Cobh.We reckon January is a great month to visit even when the weather is blowing a gale because the pubs are warm and friendly and there's always a barstool somewhere with your name on it.
Come back soon !

“Perfect Penthouse”
Reviewed 16 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

A modern, light and spacious penthouse flat with a fantastic view across Cork Harbour.
Well equipped, fabulously comfortable beds, great showers - faultless!
Close to the town (and the pubs) - perfect for six friends on a long weekend in Cobh.

We had a long weekend at the Waterfront Penthouse, it is an amazing place to stay when visiting Cobh.
The location of the penthouse is ideal for everything Cobh has to offer including Cobh Cathedral and the Heritage Centre not to mention a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops.
The Penthouse itself is finished to a very high and beautiful standard providing everything you need for a comfortable stay in Cobh along with a large sun terrace which has arguably one of the best views in Cobh.

“Absolute Heaven”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Just back from a long weekend stay at the Penthouse. What can I say the apartment was fantastic! Ken & Mairead were great hosts and even picked our son up from the airport very kind of them - much appreciated. The Penthouse is in a prime location in the centre of Cobh with amazing views over the bay. Don't need a tv with this scenery!!! A few minutes walk into town centre with all the restaurants, bars, shops and sightseeing. Ken recommended where to go to eat, drink and sightsee. The museum was great enjoyed this very much!
We ate at Tradewinds & The Quays - excellent food. Rob Roy bar was great with the traditional music nite. Cobh is beautiful and the people are very friendly and kind. Near to Fota and to Cork.

The Penthouse is immaculate with everything you will need and more!!! We didn't need anything all you need is here impossible to fault the Penthouse would recommend to anyone we had a great time and thanks Ken for letting us stay longer. Can't wait to go back and relax - once you go here you will not want to go home!!!!

Thanks Ken & Mairead for everything and letting us stay in your beautiful apartment.

we stayed with my sister & husband and sister-in-law & husband. The condo is very comfortable with 6 people altogether. It is newly renovated & not done cheaply.: I might add. The best of everything & spotless. But most of all a view like no other. A gorgeous small town with good restaurants & pubs. The train is nearby & lots of parking.
