The closest I can find is Rushbrooke Park which is the adjoining road.

You have to enter it as;
    Select country = Ireland.
    City = Rushbrooke.
    Road = Rushbrooke Park.


I'm using a 920 with 8.15 maps Western & Central Europe.

TomToms are not designed to find House names (if this is one!)
You can search for a City or Town Name, or a Street name in those cities/towns, or a postcode.

So.... a search for "Cobh" should work.

Remembering that you have to switch the search country to "Ireland" (easily forgotten - I just did! Maybe that's why you couldn't find it...).

"Cobh (Mount Crozier)" is listed, with about 32 street names.
This is on v805 map, the v810 map and the v815 map which you would get as a free update to your new 930 IF you install v8 software BEFORE you accept the map update. The v815 map on my 940 allows you to see all the street names available, whereas the 805 and 810 on my 720 need you to enter a first letter.

To find your exact destination you need better address details i.e. a street name. The fact that probably every local person knows where it is, is not enough for the poor TomTom!

A quick 'Google' found a Rushbrook Hotel which looks like it is on Harbour Hill and a "Curves Health Club" in Unit 1 Rushbrook Manor, so it may be an industrial estate?

Rushbrooke Park is found under Rushbrooke on a TT 815 Map.

The location you want, I believe, is N51.8499, W8.3151

Edit: I'm presuming it's a Hotel!

Hi again, the address i wanted you to find is just a road name, its not a hotel or a house name..
looks like TomTom cant find it then, the Garmin finds it perfectly.... just a bloody shame about my unit keep restarting!
the temptation to swap my Garmin Nuvi 765T for a TomTom 930T is getting stronger...though still not sure, it seems most sat navs have problems now and then

Can't you just get there once and then add it as a POI or a Favourite?

Cheers

Dennis, sorry, meant Wayne, what is wrong with your 765T? Have been interested in one of these for a while to replace my 730T but have heard mixed reports of screen refreshing speed etc.
