Michael O’Shea, the marvelous owner of this beautiful B&B, took our room reservation by e-mail six months in advance without requiring a down payment. “Just send me your name and address and a phone number,” he advised. We sent a confirmation e-mail a couple of weeks before our arrival and were assured by Michael that we were indeed booked in... More

What a great B & B! I traveled to Cobh from Kinsale. Arriving at Ard Na Laoi we were greeted by smiling Michael who not only escorted us to our room but insisted on taking some of our luggage up the stairs. We were in Cobh only a few nights, but Michael proved to be an excellent host. He certainly... More

We took the train from Cork and easily walked here. Also, easy to walk around town with this as the starting point. Proprietor Michael was so welcoming. We loved our room and the shared living room with a beautiful view of the water. Full Irish breakfast in the morning was delicious. Highly recommend!

With our Aussie friends in the front seats trying to find a place to stay I stepped out of the car right in front of Ard Na Laoi. So I said "why don't we stay here?" Luckily there were rooms available. We took one of the rooms facing the bay and our friends took the other. What a wonderful place.... More

We had an absolute great time. Spotless, quiet and friendly. Michial was such a joy to talk and have a bit of craic! Will most definitely return. This is traditional bed and breakfast so don't expect fancy but the place is comfortable and spotlessly clean

This was a great B&B. The hosts were welcoming, warm and helpful. It sets right on the main road and while there was no assigned parking, there was no charge for rental cars that parked on the street so we were able to park a few doors down from the front door. The view from our room was magnificent as... More
