The owner was very accomidating and sweet. She was entertaining and her hubby made a great breakfast. The house was very nice but I just about froze to death. It was so cold in our room that I had to sleep with extra clothes on and with the blanket over my face just to keep warm. Had difficulty connecting to...

Ardeen B&B is a good choice to stay at. The view to the harbor is stunning. There is TV and internet connection in every room and in the common area as well. The city center is around five minute walk, while Cork is around fifteen minutes by car. The traditional Irish breakfast in the morning was delicious. You can spend...

A nice old row house with three floors awaits you, as well as a vibrant and helpful proprietor! The Ardeen sits a couple streets above the main road by the harbour front which also affords you a perched view. It is also located close to free parking about a block away at the massive church overlooking Cobh, or if you...

I stayed at Ardeen B&B on 11th January and I would recommend it to anyone. The house itself is lovely and overlooks the harbour. Aoibhinn was so helpful and friendly. I was very delayed in my arrival and ended up getting in at 11.45pm but that was no problem to her at all. The reception area has a small kitchen...

Thanks Ciara for your brilliant review and I hope you did enjoy your stay in Cobh Cork even if it was for work. Late or 24 hour check-in is one of the joys of B&B world!!!!

A beautiful location in the heart of Cobh overlooking the bay and nestled under the impressive Cathedral. Food, comfort and hospitality of real quality. Aoibhinn offers a home from home and gave a first class guide to Cobh present and past. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Couldn't give a high enough recommendation.
