Welcome to our unique, contemporary Lux Bus. Our double decker bus is clean and spacious complete with its private attractive outdoor space hosting a BBQ, dining area and covered in SNUG with stove fire so no matter what the weather you can get the full experience from this memorable stay. We allow upto 4 adults or 6 if its a family with children. The Lux Bus is the perfect base for adventures around Cork and we welcome families, couples and groups upto 4. THIS IS NOT A PARTY BUS!

The space
With plenty of space for 4 adults or 6 including kids this is one place that is not just an accommodation but also an experience. When you book you reserve the entire bus with your very own private outdoor snug, seating area, stove and BBQ. With private parking for upto 2 cars (additional parking available on request) and minutes drive to lots of activities this is the perfect place to base yourself.

***Just to note this is not a party bus and parties, noise and visitors are strictly not allowed. We kindly ask that the bus is left in the same clean state that you found it in. The outdoor area must be vacated by 9pm ***

Nestled in the beautiful town of Cobh with countryside views is the unique and luxury double decker bus. Within close proximity to the heritage town and minutes walk to public transport this is a hidden gem which one must experience. It is the perfect base location when visiting the Munster area and its extensive attractions. The bus is a stand alone accommodation so you will have sole use of the bus and its private outdoor space during your time with us. It is always cleaned and disinfected to a high standard including light switches, door handles, switches etc.

This vintage London bus has been converted to an extremely high standard with attention to detail and all mod cons one would expect from a holiday stay. Our bus has everything you need for your stay but please feel free to ask if you have any special requests we may be able to help you with.

As you can expect from a bus, there is a stairs on board and the ceilings upstairs are 5ft 9inch which lower than normal. To keep the bus as original as possible we did not change the height of the ceiling upstairs so this is something everyone should take note of. The shower is based upstairs so will be lower than normal.

Every room has its own Smart TV complete with Netflix and YouTube etc. There is Wifi through out, but if you want some screen free time there is also a range of books and board games. We have a cosy fire on board as well as electric panel heating and a Dyson hot/cold portable heater, but should the weather be nicer, there is a lovely outdoor area complete with table and chairs for your private use. The Snug area comes complete with a solid fuel stove and purpose built BBQ (fuel not provided). The SNUG area is a fantastic place to hang out all year round but is especially nice on those rainy days when the rain is tampering down on the roof and your sitting with a book, a chat or a drink and that nice warm fire.

Where you’ll be

County Cork, Ireland

The Lux Bus is situated a 4minute drive from Cobh town, so having a car is an advantage. With beautiful peaceful countryside views it is upto you whether you relax in style or explore the many attractions of the area.

There is a shop, pub and laundry facilities within a 7minute walk along a country road. This is also where the Cobh Connect bus stop is situated which takes you to Cork City in 20mins. Just to note this road does not have a footpath so caution should always be taken and we provide high viability jackets for your use.

A 2 minute drive away you will find SuperValu, Aldi, Lidl and a petrol station.
