Oakhurst House is a traditional Victorian home that existed long before the Titanic set sail on her maiden voyage from Queenstown across the Atlantic. You are now staying in this historical home very close to the very same Harbour that was the last port for the S.S. Titanic.
The washroom is modern and spacious, shared between the 3 guest bedrooms.
We provide a tea/coffee facility and free wifi (available only in the living room and dining room area at the moment).
There is free parking available in our driveway for our guests.
To facilitate your peace and quiet, none of our rooms have TVs. However, you may watch TV in the lounge area.
Full breakfast is served between 8-10am. We will accommodate with advance notice any special dietary requirements, such as: vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, etc. Contact me for more details prior to arrival.
Interaction with Guests
On arrival, we meet and greet our guests and are available 24/7 for any queries. We then take a breakfast order and let you rest /relax.
We then see you the following morning for a beautiful morning spread.
We would also highly recommend a tour around St.Colman's Cathedral, the Crypt below it and the old Bridewell Prison. We can arrange a discount on the tour. They also dig into the history of the Lusitania Ship that was bombed during the war off Cork. Let me know on your arrival and I can organize it for you.
Have a look at the guidebook for more local tourist information after booking.
It makes for a perfect weekend break with no transport required, being only 8 minutes' walk from Cobh centre and train station.

Eileen and her husband are wonderful. Staying with them for more than a week, I started to feel extremely comfortable spending time in their wonderful house. After a long day of work or sightseeing they offered me a beer and we sat in front of the fire chatting or watching TV. Eileen will go far to make sure you are comfortable, if you need anything just ask! Room I stayed was with a view to the bay - it is spacious, and very cozy! Breakfast was altered to be vegan for my needs. Eileen bought me almond milk and tofu, and made sure I have all I need. Me and my wife and our dog had a memorable time.
We had a enjoyable time. Eileen is a superb hostess very caring, and offers lots of information. The bed was comfy and the food was great. Interesting historical home that is well cared for. I would stay here again!
Oakhurst House is perfect, exactly what we were looking for...short walk into the two and the house its self is wonderful....Eileen couldn't be nicer and gave perfect directions when we got lost :)
Eileen has been great to work with. I accidentally booked the wrong date and she was so accommodating in switching the reservation. I haven actually stayed in the place yet but i am expecting great things. So far, i would 100% recommend staying with Eileen.
Eileen was great, very welcoming and friendly. The room and bathroom were very clean, the bed was comfy, and my room had a wonderful water view. Breakfast was delicious. Eileen even offered to drive me to the airport for half the price of a taxi. I had a short, but enjoyable time in Cobh. Thanks, Eileen!
This was another place on our trip that we wish we could have stayed longer. Eileen is a wonderful host, and you can tell she takes a lot of pride in her home, and enjoys having guests and introducing them to Cobh. The house is very impressive, and Eileen really makes it wonderful. You can't ask for more. The view from our room was breathtaking. Eileen made breakfast in the morning, which was wonderful, and she encouraged us to check out the Roaring Donkey pub, which was a huge highlight of our trip. Thanks Eileen!
Eileen was such a motherly host. Her house is welcoming and beautiful. Breakfast was delicious! If you need advice about Cobh, she will point you in the right direction. I am definitely going to come back and stay longer!
