Beautiful house about a 10 minute downhill walk to Cobh towncenter. (get a cab for the way back. Pam was a delightful house and was very welcoming and answered any questions we had for recommendations. She also had the most amazing homemade scones I have ever tasted. I would stay at the Knockeven house just for those!

Very spacious accommodation finished in a rather dated style. The host is very welcoming and offers to assist where possible. The breakfast is OK. The house is located near the centre of Cobh but a bit too far to walk.

The house has a wealth of original period features and in a lovely quiet setting yet walking distance to Cobh for attractions and evening meals. We stayed for 3 nights - not really long enough to see everything in... More
