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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I’ve been on TripAdvisor for many many years and have always been honest with my reviews. After reading so many of the outstanding reviews I was convinced on the Knockeven House but I should’ve gone back further to 2019 to read a correct review. Although Pam is delightful and the breakfast and homemade scones are very good , the house has seen better days. It’s just a little tired and needs some sprucing up. Please don’t get me wrong. It was clean and comfortable but not a five star at this time. If we are not honest, how can you truly trust the reviews.

Despite booking this accommodation over six months in advance, the hostess called frantically a month or so before our trip because she had overbooked. I cannot imagine we did not book first; however, we were booted out to a standard hotel - clean, friendly but noisy and sterile - definitely not the same environment we expected with a traditional Irish bed & breakfast. The host made the accommodation and our payment transferred over - I really expected she would have chosen a similar accommodation in which to place us. I’d have to say a no to this one purely out of a lack of reliability and a lack of care in choosing a back up plan.

Pam’s welcome and care made this one of our favourite nights on our road trip. She made a reservation for us to eat out, chatted with us, made us tea and apple pie on arrival and cooked the best breakfast we had in Ireland with home made scones and soda bread. The room was large, clean and had everything we needed. The bed was so comfortable. The whole house is beautiful and so near to all you need in Cobh. We wanted to take this place and Pam with us everywhere we went!

Pam is just a wonderful Host: accommodating, generally helpful ( especially with dinner reservations ) knowledgeable and truly LOVES Cobh ! The breakfast is quite good, our room had a beautiful view out of the enormous windows. Bed was super-comfortable, and the linens are first class. You can walk in to town ( it took us 25 leisurely minutes ) but Pam will offer to drive you AND pick you up. Train stop into Cork is a 5 minute walk from the property ( we did visit there ) and were very happy that we chose Knockeven House as our base. Cobh is charming and much quieter than Cork - which is a city - with all the noise and crowds. Would definitely return to stay with Pam :-)

We had a great time at the Knockeven in House. The house is beautiful and you couldn’t asked to be treated any better. Our rooms were large and well decorated. Just lovely! The traditional breakfast was very good and cooked to order. Our hostess did all that she could to make our stay perfect. We were really glad we chose the Knockeven house for our stay in Cobh. We decided that next time we will have to stay longer.

My husband and I spent just one night but was enough to enjoy this lovely vintage B&B house. At Breakfast time Pam, the lady who runs the house, took care of every single detail to make our experience very classy and tasty, we loved it! She was very nice and knowledgeable, she share with us useful information to take the most advantage of our return drive to Dublin. I definitely recommend this place. If you have time, spend sometime in her living room and check the books and magazines on the tea table, she has a particular interesting book with the collection of photographs taken by Reverend Father Francis Browne during his short trip in first class at the Titanic from England to Queensland (today Cobh). Take a glance of the book and then go to the Titanic Experience Museum at Cobh downtown!

The home was lovely, the rooms spacious and the linens luxurious. The best thing though is the wonderful owner Pam. She is so kind and gracious, making us dinner reservations, giving us tips on sightseeing and feeding us a fantastic breakfast. Wish we had allowed for more than 1 night in Cohb but hope to be back some day to stay again. If you are going to be in the area do yourself a favor and stay with Pam.
