“Lovely apartment with a stunning sea view”
Reviewed 4 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We had a wonderful, peaceful and carefree week staying here. The apartment had everything we needed to feel at 'home' and is kept to a very high standard by owner Ken. We were five adults and had loads of space. The harbour views are a definite highlight and the apartment is only a couple of minutes walk to shops, restaurants and tourist attractions.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 23 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

I booked this penthouse inspired by the views on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed.Wow, amazing views, what a fabulous place.Tastefully decorated, modern, comfortable, spotlessly clean. Glowing white bedding and towels. Powerful showers. A two-minute walk to the centre of Cobh. It could barely be any better. Ken's communication was faultless, a personal welcome with tips and hints for our three night stay most welcome. Ken also went well beyond and personally made our stay even more comfortable. I think my family will remember our stay and Ken's hospitality fondly for many years to come. Five stars, simply not enough.

“Fantastic view”
Reviewed 6 October 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We really enjoyed our week in the Waterfront Penthouse in Cobh and was made to feel really welcome by Ken on our arrival.
The apartment has everything you need for your stay but of course the best thing is the fantastic view of Cork harbour. It was great just to relax and watch what was going on in the harbour but it was really impressive to see the huge cruise liners come to town, turn around and “park up”!
Cobh is full of history if you go out looking for it with a visit to Spike Island highly recommended. We also took a trip on the road train from outside the Titanic Experience which is also worthwhile. The driver is great and gives an entertaining commentary as you go around with loads of information about Cobh, many of the buildings and lots of history (and a few funny stories thrown in for good measure!).
Some parts of the town look a bit tired but try and look past that and you will be rewarded with some great places to eat and drink and some really friendly hospitality.

Hi Heather,
Thank you for taking the time to review The Waterfront Penthouse and delighted to read that you enjoyed your time in Cobh. During the season cruise liners come past so close to the apartment you can almost touch them
And as you say Spike Island,which is directly opposite the Penthouse,is well worth a visit and was voted Europe’s leading tourist attraction at the prestigious World Travel Awards 2017.
We hope to see you again soon.

“We love The Penthouse!”
Reviewed 3 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

A family holiday with 4 '20 somethings' was always going to be a challenge!

Any worries I had quickly disappeared once we arrived at the Penthouse, Cobh. The owners have made this so visitor friendly, with everything that you could need in the kitchen, lovely fresh bedding and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The apartment is HUGE and there was plenty of space for everybody.

Cobh has lots of great pubs and the White Star Visitor Centre is a must if you'd like to learn more about the Titanic and it's passengers. Cobh is also a great base and we visited many places including Kinsale, Killarney, Blarney Castle, Cork and Garyluccus Beach to name a few!

We hope to visit again very soon :)

“Sail on by...”
Reviewed 21 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We just spent a lovely weekend at the penthouse. The accommodation is hotel standard - crisp white cotton sheets, fluffy towels, fantastic showers and tasteful solid wood furniture.
The real star is the view..never a dull moment watching boats, tugs, ferry and even cruise ship.
