We stayed in Cobh for several nights in September and were pleasantly surprised with the lovely accommodations. The best part was the wonderful hospitality offered to us by Pam, who welcomed us with tea as well as directions into town and info on the area. We felt welcome and pampered and would recommend her home to anyone. Thank you for...

Wonderful accommodations, excellent host who takes her time to ensure you see any or all sights of interest in the area, plus somewhat of a history buff of Cobh. Pam found us when we arrived in town, got us quickly to her place and treated us like royalty, or good friends. If in this area, stay with Pam, you won't...

I visited here yesterday for afternoon tea with a friend. It was an experience to sit in the beautiful drawing room with silver and bone china to a tea tine treat of little sandwiches, homemade scones with jam and cream and little cakes. It was all presented on the traditional way and our hostess Pam made sure we had a...

We were welcomed by John as we pulled up to Knockeven in the driveway. Pam and he run an amazing home and could not be more friendly and helpful. We were served delicious tea and scones upon our arrival, and had a wonderful chat with the two of them. The house itself is gorgeous and our room, meticulously decorated in...

Highly recommend a stay at the Knockeven House and Cobh. Pam and John were welcoming and warm with lots of suggestions for dinner and sightseeing in Cobh. Breakfast was excellent with homemade scones and bread. Add this to your list of places to go in Ireland.
