We enjoyed our stay at this B&B very much. The garden was beautifully cared for. The hosts were friendly, very down to earth and easy to talk to. They have many books to guide and inspire you for visits around the area. We had a great view of the water from our room. The location is great for Cobh, Cork city centre/ English Market, and less than an hour's drive from Kinsale. A day trip to Killarney is doable.
Unfortunately, my hay fever kicked up and we're not sure if I was allergic to something in the garden, but I regretted not coming prepared with allergy tablets.
The breakfast was basic and similar to what you get in the UK. My Irish partner was disappointed that they did not have traditional Irish soda bread. As a vegetarian, I am always hoping B&Bs will offer something a bit more creative - it doesn't have to be fancy, just a bit more variety.
Overall, the hosts were the lovely and welcoming, the location was excellent, and we would recommend this B&B.
