Our quaint little cabin was comfy and humble. The stove takes a while to heat up, but everything works just fine. The host gave us a good pub recommendation with a good view of the bay.
Lovely relaxing atmosphere.will definatley be back soon.1st time having a spa also which was great.
Thanks deirdre.see ye again!
We stayed in the cabin for just one night. The place was comfortable but took some adjusting to the tiny shower. Find the place was complicated because lat/long coordinates were incorrect. Overall the cabin was good and clean. Bed and furniture were good. Good value and good location.
Thank you James it was our pleasure having you to stay. We have the correct co ordinates on our welcome letter. The sat nav co ordinates are incorrect and we have been trying to rectify this situation for quite some time now but it is out of our control. With very best wishes
Thank you so much everyone at the robin hill house! We loved the grounds and the little cabin we stayed in. Deirdre and the rest of the staff were so helpful and friendly! Get a massage while you're there, it was great!! The cabin was a little far from downtown, but it was a beautiful walk!
One of the highlights of our trip! The cabin is really comfortable and cosy, and Deirdre and her staff were so friendly and welcoming (Deirdre even gifted us a homeopathic jet lag remedy when we told her we were due to fly home the next day). Definitely recommend the optional breakfast in the main house. They also offer discount on massage treatments, we both practically melted into the couch we were so relaxed. Walking distance to the beautiful Cobh harbour front, restaurants and bars. Absolutely prefect way to end a long month of travelling.
Deirdre and her wonderful sister greeted us like old friends, chatting and having the crac......the summer house was everything you would need for a visit to Cobh....just lovely
Our host and other employees were very welcoming and helpful and seemed genuinely happy to see us! The neighborhood was quiet and pleasant. We loved breakfast each morning - yum!!! We also enjoyed the privacy of the cabin - really cute. We also enjoyed our two hour muscle massages a lot!!!! Wished we'd have played croquet... Beautiful lawn and garden. Thank you Deirdra and staff!!
