Come to stay in one of the most delightful & historic towns in Ireland. Cobh (An Cóbh) (Queenstown from 1849-1920) and its harbour is famous for being the last port of call for the ill-fated RMS Titanic, the naval importance of Cork Harbour, Spike Island Prison, Haulbowline Naval Base, the RMS Lusitania and many other fascinating pieces of Irish History.

With many pubs, restaurants, museums, areas of wildlife and easy access to loads of family related fun, Cobh is the perfect destination!

The space
There is a standard double bed in the main guest bedroom, on the ground floor at the front of the house. The bathroom is reserved only for guest use. Our rooftop garden is perfect for a relaxing breakfast in the morning sunshine! Facilities also include unlimited Wi-Fi, unlimited hot water and a Nespresso coffee machine.

The house is part of a Victorian terrace of townhouses built in 1865 and the guest area encompasses the ground floor. Our house was originally used as living quarters for British Army NCO's and their families, the street at that time was called "Barracks View". The barracks is now no longer here, but in its place is a small serene public park. Our house, which was originally part of the Fota Estate, later became tenement housing and finally a residential property.

West View, along with "The Crescent" (historic houses in an adjacent road) is reputed to have been designed by Queen Victoria's personal architect as a favour to the local land-owner, a friend of Victoria.

We have lovingly restored the property, retaining as many of its original features as possible, making it a very calming and comfortable place to live and stay.

The bells of St. Coleman's strike the hour, with chimes on the quarters, between 7am & 11pm.

Rosarii & Andrew are happily married and living in a beautiful historic house in Cobh. Living by the sea is important to us, but we'd prefer to live under it being passionate divers! We've travelled extensively - spending 5 years wandering around Africa, Asia and India - working from time to time as dive instructors to keep the show on the road. Although back in Ireland since 2009, we always have itchy feet - in the last few years we've travelled to Bali, Philippines, Borneo, Bonaire, Egypt and Cuba - great dive destinations of course :)
