The town of Cobh was a beautiful destination and Deirdre's location is perfect. A short 20 minute walk and you are out of her relaxing neighbourhood and downtown at the waterfront. Her home is large and comfortable, the bedroom cozy, her gardens wonderful. Deirdre was always helpful when we asked for directions to various places and suggested a great place to eat for dinner which lived up to her embellishments. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. And when we arrived...puppies were everywhere to revel in, a new litter that Deirdre was dutifully caring for until they all found new homes. Thanks for everything.
We are a couple who stayed last weekend at Deirdre's and we had an amazing time. The room was beautiful, the bed so comfortable, with nice view to a peaceful town.
We found all facilities, she was really helpful during the time we stayed there, and also when we are heading to another town.
Definitively, an Airbnb to recommend to everyone.

We originally booked the luxury double room, the room was not, what I would call luxury. Deirdre kindly moved us to the family room this room was beautiful nice and bright, plenty of room. New bed excellent very comfy.
The location was great easy to find, Cobh is a lovely town, the people are the friendliest I have ever met.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately Cobh had gotten battered by torrential rains and we had received some water damage in the luxury room. Thankfully we were able to give you a complementary upgrade to the beautiful triple room and are very happened it all worked out.
Hope you are having a great summer and we look forward to seeing you again. Deirdre and Staff
Staying at Deirdre's place was an amazing experience for us and helped us get the best out of visiting the beautiful town of Cobh. The room is really cosy and has a great view. The breakfast option was also a good choice. Not only the room, but also the entire Robin Hill Sanctuary is an amazing place to stay and me and my wife hope to visit Deirdre's house in the future. Oh, I've forgot to mention that the staff is really helpful, warm and friendly. Great place in Cobh!
Great place, we were received with a very warm welcome and great hospitality. Thoroughly recommended.
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dierdre Macksey's rental, and would go back there in a minute. Our hostess is charming , friendly and will do anything to accommodate her guests. Would have sent this sooner, but just got back from our trip. The rental is lovely, antiques to enjoy, situation is great. Just loved her and her place. Mary V. Kane
