Bella Vista - fabulous views spacious luxurious rooms good breakfasts friendly staff. The only minor disadvantage is as Bella Vista is on an upper level in Cobh you either have quite a steep walk up from town center ground level or a slighter longer walk with still with an incline however it is definitely worth it for the views.

My wife, son, daughter-in-law, and I, stayed in 2 bedroom chalet. We had a fantastic stay. The chalet was clean and well kept up. The staff were exceptional! They were always friendly and helpful and made us feel very special. If we ever visit Cobh again, this is where we will stay!

All of the promised amenities were on hand (fitted out kitchen, wifi, etc..etc..). Beds very comfortable. Freshly baked scones were delivered each morning (really delicious). Friendly and helpful staff....

It is situated opposite the cathedral, which you can see from every angle of the apartment. The catedral is so spectacular that you could spend hours watching it and the sea that surround it.
