Welcome to the sunny southeast and our beautiful apartment in Youghal where nothing is overlooked but the sea. The sun shines in the South of Ireland far more than anywhere else in this beautiful country. We call it the Irish riviera. The people are very friendly and laid back, and you will feel at home immediately.
The apartment is on an elevated site with spectacular views overlooking Youghal bay. It is part of a 4 star Bord failte holiday complex which boasts an outdoor heated pool( July and August), professional tennis courts, childrens play area, croquet lawn and bowling green all on site. Childrens club available during July and August. It is a ground floor apartment and is in a quiet part of the complex. The patio doors open up onto a large open green area with the view of Youghal bay in the background.
In the immediate vicinity of the complex ( walking distance) there is : an 18 hole golf course and 2 blue flag beaches.
Youghal town centre with its many fine restaurants and historic features, is a 10 minute walk away. Youghal is a great location from which to explore the entire southern region. Cork City and airport (they think they are the capital) are a half hour's drive away. Visit its museums: The Titanic's last port of call was Cobh county Cork, and there is a wonderful multimedia museum in Cobh dedicated to its memory, or indulge in its wonderful shopping. Visit Fota island wildlife park where animals roam in wide open spaces or play a round of golf in Fota Island golf course (half an hour's drive) or at Youghal golf links (just outside the holiday complex)
Cork is the gourmet capital of Ireland, and if you are a serious "foody" you will not want to leave. Visit trendy gourmet kinsale and Darina Allen's famous cookery school and restaurant at ballymaloe house. And of course do not forget the heritage town of Lismore and Waterford City(45 minute drive).
There are two wonderful sandy blue flag beaches within walking distance of the complex.They stretch for miles and are very safe for children. Lifegaurds are on site all day during July and August. There are numerous water sports available on the Blackwater River, and you can rent a boat and go shark fishing and whale watching. Go mackerel fishing off the pier in Youghal (last year we were picking them out with our hands).
The area is a paradise for walkers/hikers in the nearby Knockmealdown and Comeragh mountains. Finally, at the end of the day, which may have been as hectic or as relaxed as you wanted it, relax and have a guinness in one of the many traditional pubs, take in the atmosphere of a real Irish music session, and wonder to yourself whether God could have improved on this place.

Well worth it!
Well worth it!
Nice place, well kept, neat little town with a lot to experience. The only downside for us was that we prefer to prepare our own meals so as to save some money and the under-counter refrigerator was way to small to hold food enough for the 4 of us. Oh well, it just meant more trips downtown to go shopping. Not a problem since we liked to go downtown and it's a short walk.

We were so happy with the apartment in Youghal, and we easily recommend it as a base to explore southwest Ireland. The apartment was large, clean, and the view was great. We enjoyed playing with a neighbor's dog who visited one morning. As previously mentioned, it was great to come "home" and cook dinner. And starting the mornings with a leisurely breakfast before venturing out made for great days. And the town of Youghal; I wish I had more time to spend there. We plan a return trip to Eire in a couple of years, and hope to stay there again.

Can it be one week since we left beautiful Ireland? We may be home in the States, but our trip to the Emerald Isle has left indelible impressions etched in our memories. One of the strongest we have is our stay in Youghal. From the moment we walked through its front door, we felt right at home in the apartment. Bright and airy, we could spread out (rather than feel cramped in a hotel room) and relax after a fun, long day of sightseeing. Even though we were on vacation, it was rather nice to whip up a home-cooked meal on occasion. Being a family of 4, we appreciated having 2 spacious bathrooms. One has a tub/jacuzzi/shower; the other a shower stall. As an added convenience, it was great to have access to a (combined) washer/dryer. The pictures don't do the view outside the patio door windows justice. Situated high on a hill, you can gaze out over the breathtaking expanse of sea, and marvel at the changing weather. I will say this - the sea is a sight you never will get tired of viewing! Youghal (pronounced "yawl" for those of us unfamiliar w/ Gaelic pronounciations) was charming; the people warm and friendly. There are 2 grocers nearby, and you'll find many shops & boutiques down the main street. When we chose to eat out, we were not disappointed w/ the area restaurants. Our daughters, rather picky eaters, found plenty of fare to satisfy their tastebuds. In addition, Youghal is well-situated in the region, making it easy to get to many points of interest in Waterford, Cork, and Blarney. Even the western part of the country is w/in acceptable driving distance. About the owner - he was wonderful...so friendly and accommodating. He answered all our questions, made sure we were comfortable, and went out of his way to help make our stay great! We highly recommend choosing this location for your stay in south-central Ireland. Situated as it is overlooking the sensational sea and its convenience to a variety of sightseeing destinations, you really can't go wrong! Enjoy!!!
