Our house has recently gone through a complete transformation and yet maintaining all original features. Recently refurbished to high standard, our house now has the "Waouh" factor and you will enjoy a great stay not only in the house, but also enjoying the views to the harbour and the cathedral. In the early mornings and late afternoons , you can enjoy the liners arriving and departing from the port below, while you enjoy your morning coffee or in the evening perhaps a glass of wine.
Situated in the middle of this picturesque street, West View, is one of the 23 houses built in the late 1850's and designed by Queen Victoria's Architect.
The house is on 3 levels and features:
- 4 bedrooms including one on the ground floor;
- Two traditional style bathrooms with a stand-alone bath, a separate shower, a wash basin and toilets;
- A very spacious and full of light modern kitchen with a large table;
- A separate dining room/ living-room;
- A downstairs shower-room with wash-basin, shower and toilets;
The house has everything you wish for a relaxing stay and has all the equipment to make your stay even more comfortable: tea & coffee provided washing machine, bed linen and towels, and high speed WiFi.
Spending 4-5 nights or a full week in the house is ideal as not only will you enjoy fully the house and relax there, but also you will make the most of what Cobh and the area has to offer to you. You can easily spend one day in Cobh, visiting the Cathedral, the Heritage Centre, the Titanic Museum and walking the Titanic trail. On another day, you can visit Cork city, just 25mn away by train (the train station is situated less than 10mn walk from the house), or in Fota Island (The Gardens, the Zoo or a day at the golf!). From Cobh, you can also have day-trips to Ballycotton (walking along the cliffs, visiting the Stephen Pearce Pottery (and having a nice piece of cake from their cafe), visiting the Jameson factory in Midleton, kissing the Blarney stone in Blarney Castle, and you can also in a day drive to Killarney and come back to the house!
There is so much to do in the area, and don’t forget to enjoy the great food and atmosphere in the local restaurants, and of course enjoying a nice pint in one of the local pubs!
