Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was a somewhat last minute booking for me. The owner of the B&B I had booked earlier had to cancel and I was left scrambling to find a place in Cobh in early November. I wrote Elmville and begged. Olive, the fabulous owner took pity on me and opened her doors for us even though she was closed for the season. The two rooms we reserved shared a bath and I was initially hesitant about that, however, it was no inconvenience at all. There are only two rental rooms on the floor, we were provided with comfy bathrobes and could come and go on the second floor as we wished. A nice arrangement for families especially. The house could not be nicer....built in the 1850's, beautifully maintained and appointed. It is a classic treasure in Cobh and the location is perfect for walking to the museum and town center. And now Olive! All I can say is thank you for opening your doors to our little group and making us feel so welcome. Thank you for the beautiful breakfast in your elegant dining room, the use of your lovely parlor with tea, coffee and treats each day, and the wonderful conversations. We truly felt as though we were staying with family on our holiday.

Loved our recent stay. The pictures of this house do not do it justice and the owner is amazing, she is so helpful and friendly. The rooms are beautiful and the attention to detail is amazing. We had a beautiful room overlooking the harbour and I wished we were staying longer. Do beware that the rooms are not ensuite ( I had just presumed they were) Bathrobes are provided and strangely I didn't mind sharing the beautiful bathroom. There is a lovely sitting room where you can sit and have a tea or coffee (nespresso machine) . This B&B is a gem. You walk through the door and immediately feel at home. The location is also perfect as it's only a few minutes walk into the center of Cobh.

We stayed in room 1 which is a very grand room with a huge ensuite and lovely views of the harbour. It is a flat 10 minute walk along the waterfront to the delightful centre of Cobh. The host Olive does everything possible to make your stay a pleasure. There are beautiful gardens in this staely home with free secure parking. Breakfast is great, both hot and cold available.I think some of the other rooms have shared bathrooms so if you don't like to share check when you book.

We had a lovely warm welcome from our host and from then on we felt perfectly at home, even if it also felt like we were staying in a Stately Home! We had a beautiful room at the front overlooking the waterfront, and it's just a leisurely walk along that waterfront to the town. We'd love to come back. Thank you, Olive.

This has to be one of the best B&B’s I have stayed in. Our host Olive made sure that our visit was just amazing and because she knew it was my birthday, added a personal touch by greeting me with Prosecco. The room was magnificent with a wonderful view of Cobh harbour. It was super clean and spacious. Breakfast was greatly appreciated and really tasty. We will definitely be back and cannot praise Olive enough for her warmness and hospitality.

Elmville House was an amazing bed and breakfast. We splurged for the Master Suite and we feel we made an EXCELLENT choice. Olive greeted us when we arrived, she was super friendly and very funny! She set the tone for the stay by providing a wonderful welcome, and even provided some great spots for dinner in town. The bed was extra comfy, the view from the room was incredible, and having the bathroom attached was a great selection. The breakfast in the morning was prepared by Olive and it was delicious. A traditional Irish breakfast with French press coffee. We could not have been more pleased with our stay. You will not find a better B&B in Cobh. 10/10 will stay again when we return!

A friendly welcome, our huge room and ensuite had lovely views over the estuary. We were warned that stand alone bath was not really working, but large (noisy) shower was sufficient for our needs. We like a cup of tea in our room, but this was only available in the communal lounge, as was the TV. Lovely hostess, very friendly and helpful. Walking distance to town and nearby restaurants, but due to the downpour, we drove. Full Irish Breakfast available, but no fruit or croissants, taken on communal table with German tourists was a little awkward with the language difference.

Our host was outstanding in both touring the beautiful house, sharing the feeling of being Irish and filling us in on the local activities. Our rooms were perfect with great accommodations, beautiful views and amenities. We were conveniently close to the sights downtown to make our evening special.

Stayed here for a party in the town. From the moment we arrived Olive was so nice and welcoming. B and B was clean and beautifully traditional. Olive gave us a lift into the town as my shoes were too high for the 10 minute walk. She had breakfast for us in the morning in a lovely breakfast room where we got chatting to a lovely couple from Dublin. Olive creates an environment where you can meet new people easily. Highly recommend this place.

A lovely experience in a gorgeous old home. Olive is a lovely lady who made us feel very welcome. Enjoyed our chats with her, especially in the lounge one evening when we returned from dinner. There are coffee/tea facilities in the lounge. Our room was so big and lovely upstairs with amazing views of the harbour. Clean and comfy with lovely old style furniture. Olive cooks a fabulous breakfast, and it’s enjoyable to chat to the other guests.
