Knockeven House

Cobh, Co. Cork
Bed & Breakfast

Regal interiors at reasonable prices. Pam’s hospitality is heartwarming - flowers fill the sitting room, breakfast is sumptuous


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


The impressive early Victorian house lifts its pillars to the admiring acres and has a regal interior to match. Red opulence in the main hall, smart golfing wallpaper at the back – a top designer has clearly worked here and it’s a haven for golfing fanatics (the famous Fota Island golf course is nearby). Pam’s warm hospitality will go to your heart. Having owned and run a successful supermarket, she has a genuine and generous talent for serving others. Big bedrooms are richly flounced and draped in florals or toile de Jouy. One has dramatically beautiful long silk curtains and matching throws, another a superb old half-tester bed, all have fine antiques and the smartest white bathrooms with luscious goodies. Downstairs, flowers, old timber and modern windows warm the smart sitting room, mahogany glows beneath your linen table mat and silver cutlery, the breakfast spread is sumptuous. After a spin to the harbour (or a round of golf), come home to a gorgeous afternoon tea. Real value.
