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.

Eileen takes care of her guests in a friendly and professional way. Rooms are very pretty and charmful. It was our last night in Ireland, we apreciated it very much and we recommend this B&B !
Eileen was a marvoulous host, very kind and gentle, she prepared us a great irish breakfast and also gave us a lot of information of the area, also helped us planning our next move in our trip. Her daughter also was very helpful and kind, she gave us also several tips for our journey to the north of the country. The house was a little bit difficult to find, but we finally made it. The location is wonderful, with views of the coast and a wonderful garden.
Great B&B. Great spacious rooms. Nice breakfast (lots of efford!) . Superrrrr kind hosts. Lovely house. Superb location. Small walk to the centre.
I enjoyed my stay here! All in all.. Perfect!
Oakhurst B & B was delightful! It is such a beautiful home; so comfortable and elegant in a great location with gorgeous gardens. Eileen and her family are charming hosts. The breakfast was fantastic as well. Highly recommended!
We had a fantastic 3 night stay at this property!!! Eileen was welcoming, informative and very accommodating. Her knowledge of Cobh and surrounding area was very helpful to plan our vacation. The property is in a great location with a stunning view of the bay and within walking distance to most Cobh attractions and resteraunts. Our family of 6 adults found the home spacious and within walking distance after an evening of pub crawling.
Breakfast was above and beyond any restaurant, exceeding all expectations. The hosts continually went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, after only 3 nights I felt like I was leaving family
Absolutely fantastic! We stayed with Eileen and her husband in late June as a stop on our Irish roadtrip. Eileen is a gracious, kind host—she was full of recommendations on what to do in Cobh (and beyond!), and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the town. The B&B is spacious and pristine, and only a short walk to the town centre, making it a perfect spot to use as a home base. And not to forget about the breakfast—we were completely spoiled by the wonderful meal. We throughly enjoyed our stay here, and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to spend time in Cobh!
Got in late but still received a warm welcome and a cup of tea! Eileen cooked us a wonderful breakfast, told us te best way to see Cobh and shared all the great details of her home!
