The beautiful, wonderfully maintained Knockeven House B&B, is located just outside the picturesque seaside town of Cobh in County Cork. The railway station is only three minutes from the house and trains go to Cork every hour and take 40 minutes.

Knockeven House B&B is a wonderfully maintained home just outside the coastal town of Cobh. The spacious rooms at Knockeven House B&B are luxuriously decorated and feature a TV in each. Set on the outskirts of the town of Cobh, the B&B enjoys peaceful surroundings, while remaining close to a range of amenities. Formerly known as Queenstown, Cobh town centre is four minute drive or a half an hour walk from Knockeven House. Cobh is easily accessible by air, sea, train and bus. The railway station itself is only three minutes from the house and trains go to Cork every hour and take 40 minutes. Cork Airport is less than 30 minutes drive.

This residence is just off the N25 and close to Cobh, which boasts a range of renowned seafood restaurants and pubs. A huge attraction is the Queenstown Story Heritage Centre, where the final Titanic passengers boarded the ill-fated ship. Another (particularly for family stays) is Fota Wildlife Park. There is a popular guided walking tour of Cobh based around the Titanic, while Spike Island has an impressive star shaped fortress, which can be accessed by ferry service. Cork Harbour is a top angling destination and is right at your doorstep in Cobh. Golfers can make for the stunningly scenic challenge that awaits them at Cobh Golf Course, just a short drive from the home here.

After exploring the delights of east Cork return to Knockeven House to relax. This 1840 house offers the perfect respite from the hectic pace of everyday life, to the finest traditions of Irish country house hospitality. Splendid oversized guest rooms are individually decorated with impeccable taste and style. All rooms are en suite and bathrooms are filled with fluffy white towels, terry cloth robes and luxury molton brown toiletries. Breakfasts are memorable feasts with fresh fruits, homemade preserves and home baked breads.
