Interaction with Guests
I'm very happy to meet and greet my guests when at all possible. If I can't make it a member of my family will be happy to do so.
Cobh is a lovely town with plenty of places to eat or have a few social drinks. A trip to the Heritage Centre is worthwhile. Also you can go on boat trips around the harbour or try out the Titanic Trail. Fota Wildlife park is a 7/8 minute drive or can be accessed by train (almost directly outside the front door). For those who enjoy a night out and don't want to worry about their car, a taxi into Cobh town will cost between 5 and 7 euro.
Rushbrooke Railway station is just two minutes walk from the house bringing you directly to Cobh Heritage Centre (in a couple of minutes) or to Cork City (in 15-20 minutes). The rail links make this house a perfect location for those travelling without a car.
Other Things to Note
There is on-street parking outside the front door or within 30 yards. There is a communal green which can be seen from the back of the house and is immediately accessible down a couple of steps. It's lovely to bring a cup of tea/coffee there and simply enjoy the view or give the kids space to play outside.
Rule number 1 - Enjoy your stay:-)
No smoking in the house.
I would really appreciate the following being done before guests leave:
Ensure kitchen is left clear of all dirty dishes etc (ensure dishwasher is NOT turned on as you leave the house as it may be a few days before I get to clean for next holiday let).
Put all rubbish in the bins provided in the utility area. There is one for recycling and one for general waste. (anything perishable should be left in the fridge)
I would really appreciate all lights and appliances being switched off - EXCLUDING the fridge:-).
This place is just fantastic . Stayed for a wedding in the local area and Liz was so helpful from the start. The house is in a great position for travelling around and was bright, stylish and very clean. We had a great view of activity on the river and access to a lovely little play space for the children. Thoroughly recommend staying here, just brilliant. Thank you Liz, a 5 star host !
We are a family of 6 (2 adults, 4 boys) travelling around Ireland. We had a wonderful time staying in this house. There was plenty of room for us all. Our boys loved the green space at the back of the house and enjoyed playing soccer with some Irish lads. This place is a great base for seeing the local area and the house had everything we needed. Great communication from Liz too. Highly recommend!
Our stay at Liz's home was delightful! It is nicely decorated and has a well equipped kitchen and a washer/dryer. The view over the water was great. We loved having the sky lights in the upper level to enjoy the water view. The walk to the village was pleasant. There is a train station just down the street, but we never needed to use it. Liz was great about giving good directions and we were met right on time to check in. We would definitely recommend this beutiful home for a relaxing vacation.
We had a wonderful stay in Cobh! The house was newly renovated, very clean, and spacious. We are a family of 5 - with three teenagers. The space was perfect. All the beds were comfortable and having two full bathrooms was great. Whenever my youngest had enough family time, you could always find her in the reading nook on the second floor.
We rented a car and the location in Cobh really worked out for us. The house was roughly 20 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes to Cork, 30 minutes to Blarney Castle, 20 minutes to Midleton and 45 minutes to Bally Cotton. All nice drives. Easy parking in front of the house.
Liz responded to my emails quickly, met us at the house and made sure we were settled, showed us the local grocery stores, and increased the wireless access for us (see previous note re: three teens) for a small fee.
All in all, we would highly recommend Liz's home.
We loved staying in the cottage. The entire house we clean and comfortable and nicely appointed. Very quiet. Short walk from the train station made getting to Cobh and Cork by train very convenient. Liz was very responsive to questions. We would be happy to stay again if we are in the area.
We were very well looked after here - we were provided with everything we'd need in the house, there was tea, coffee and biscuits upon arrival, and we were given information on the local area (local shops, bars, transport etc.). The area has beautiful scenery, and good links to Cork.
Liz was super helpful and wonderful with communication (even when I wasn't). The house was very clean and in a great, quiet location. I felt right at home and was extremely grateful for being able to stay in such a great house. Thanks for all your help and great hospitality Liz!
