  • "House is perfect, had everything we needed and more!"

    . Really nice secure garden for kids & dog to play in. Beautiful location, right beside the beach. Lovely views & walks in all directions.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Seagaze in April."

    The house was very clean and all beds were made and towels provided. The host left us a generous pack of welcome goodies. Seagaze is in a great location for visiting many tourist attractions within about 30-40 minutes drive. Our kids especially enjoyed visiting Leahy's open farm, Fota wildlife park, Spike island (departure from Cobh) and the Titanic experience museum. Other days we just stayed local, e.g. there are lots of lovely second-hand shops in Youghal so the kids stocked up on books and we went for a lovely meal of fish and chips at The Quays in Youghal. Overall, it was an enjoyable stay.

    It is located a very short walk from the beach which has beautiful walks, a huge variety of birds and endless walks. Our dog was very relaxed there and loved the spacious back garden too. The house provided all we needed for our stay. Thank you for a great short break.

  • "Beautiful comfortable + clean 'home from home'."

    Lovely enclosed back garden for our dog. Welcome basket was such a lovely touch after such a long journey from the UK. Everything we needed was there. Denise is lovely to deal with. The only thing that could have caused us a problem was that the barrier on the way in is limited to 2 metres- luckily we hadn't brought our roof box. Electricity went off for 14 hrs but that wasn't anyones fault. Already booked for next year as loved it there just by the sea.

  • "The house is in a lovely quiet estate and right on the beach ."

    We enjoyed stunning sunrises and could watch the moons reflection on the sea, beautiful. Lovely sized back garden with picnic bench. The bedrooms were spacious and the sitting room large. We found the kitchen small. Quick drive into Killeagh or Youghal for shops/eat out . The boardwalk starts at the Quality Hotel which is a short drive (or a walk along the beach) to get to & is a lovely stroll. Lovely swimming pool near by for the kids also. They are currently working on a greenway walk which won’t be too far from the house also (easy to access on bikes from the house) Denise left a lovely welcome hamper which was a nice touch. She was very friendly and easy to contact.

  • "Seagaze was an absolutely idyllic location."

    My sister and I spent a week in this beautiful beach house in December. It was perfect, Denise the owner had lights, heat and a beautiful Christmas tree on for our arrival. There was a very thoughtful and delicious gift basket on arrival, milk in the fridge so very thoughtful. I have a yorkie and he was at home in this lovely house. The back garden was perfect to let him out as totally enclosed. We could see and hear the Ocean from the living room, kitchen and bedrooms. What a view every morning. This was a perfect location for what we requested, house walking distance to beach. It was minutes walk to beach. We walked the beach every day and throughly enjoyed our stay In this beautifully located home. There were 4 super sized rooms ideal for family stays. Thanks Denise, hopefully we will be back again soon.

    Thank you, Catherine, I'm delighted you enjoyed it, hopefully, you will be back! Property Owner

    Close to the beach and great views of the sea. Youghal is not far away where you will find a beautiful strand. Plenty of shops also in Youghal etc. We had a really great time in East Cork. Waterford is an hour away by car and well worth a visit. We were spoilt for choice for beaches. Denise is a lovely host and the cottage was very comfortable.

  • "The key holder was wonderful she bought a welcome pack and was so helpful about the area and suggestions for days out, the house is spacious and well equipped and the garden is lovely on warm days, if you visited as a big party the kitchen might feel a little cramped but with so many fantastic resonable restaurants in the area why cook, point of note the access road has a height bar of 2metres which is about the height of a big 4x4 so roof boxes might be a problem and youghal is shut on Sunday although unlike the UK, supermarkets are open till 9pm."

    Have already recommended this cottage to a family member looking for a holiday.

  • "We had a little difficulty in finding the house, but once we were there we found the owner to be very friendly and welcoming."

    The house is well equipped and extremely comfortable, but one minor problem is the size of the kitchen, which is rather small compared to the rest of the property. Also the proximity of the house to the beach was a real bonus, and if you are looking for a relaxing holiday it is ideal,close enough to the town of Youghal for all amenities, but a quiet and relaxed location. Mrs. Roche the owner excelled herself when she located where our ancestors had lived in Cork city. She accessed this information from the Irish census and we managed to go and see the location for ourselves, which made our holiday extra special. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property and would be more than happy to stay there again.

Haven't got a bad thing to say about the booking(if only the weather for the weekend was as good!). The owner was also very polite & helpful.

The property

Youghal 4.5 miles.

An excellent, detached house perfectly situated in the South of Ireland with sea views, just a few miles from the popular coastal town of Youghal in County Cork.

Only a stone’s throw from the beach, this detached holiday home is in a fantastic location for families and friends to get together, and you don’t have far to go to dip your toes in the Irish Sea!

The house has four comfortable bedrooms spread over the two floors and downstairs you will also find a well-equipped kitchen, complete with a dining table.

It is the perfect room for whipping up a tasty breakfast and prepare for a day of exploring.

Take it easy in the sitting room and plan tomorrow’s adventures, or curl up with a good book, relax and enjoy your escape from everyday life.

With the sun out, open up the patio doors and let the refreshing summer breeze in through the house, sit out on the patio with a cooling drink and let the younger ones run around in the big back garden.

The town of Youghal is close to hand with plenty to discover!

There are small beaches, which are perfect for keeping an eye on the children while they splash in the sea, a range of shops, restaurants and pubs featuring live Irish music, plus the greyhound track where you can try and spot a winner.

With Cork city less than an hour away, and County Waterford around a 15-minute journey away, there is plenty to do and see.

Plan yourself a road trip and make the most of the South of Ireland from the comfort of this fantastic holiday home.

About the location

Situated on the estuary where the River Blackwater meets the sea is the seaside resort of Youghal in County Cork.

Swim or stroll along the sandy beaches, take a cruise along the Blackwater River, take a guided tour of the town or simply relax and enjoy the pubs, cafes and restaurants. Youghal is also home to an excellent 18 hole golf course and the Aura Leisure Centre with a gym and 25 metre pool.
