  • "We really enjoyed our stay in Summerfield lodge."

    The location is perfect and Barbara and her family could not have been nicer. Very welcoming and gave us some great tips on restaurants and things to do. Youghal is a gorgeous town and a great base to tour East Cork and Waterford. Would definitely return.

  • "The cottage is always clean and tidy when we go to Summerfield Lodge and always has a great welcome awaiting from Barbara."

    Even though it was cold outside the lodge was really warm and stayed that way all week. A great place to make as a start touring or just stay in Youghal as there is always plenty going on, even on the bus route to Cork and Waterford. Great stay and we have USED IT FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS or more.

  • "This little gem of a lodge is a perfect base for two when exploring the south of Ireland - a well connected spot, with Youghal itself an interesting wee seaside town."

    The long beach and boardwalk are excellent for bracing daily walks to prepare for sampling the many restaurants offering good hearty Irish produce! We had a great time here. The lodge is carefully decorated in a modern style with muted colours and relaxing ambience. Everything I wanted was in the kitchen - from a garlic press to a potato masher - and all the basics were in stock ; oil, salt, pepper ketchup etc. There was even washing powder and conditioner for the washing machine. This attention to detail made the Lodge stand out amongst others we have visited. Additionally, there is good mobile reception and dependable wi-fi - not always the norm in Irish cottages! We were warm and cosy sitting at the table in the picture windows enjoying the most fantastic views out to the sweeping bay, with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The owners made us very welcome, and were close if needed but never intrusive. Barbara’s gift basket of scones, butter and jam laid out for our arrival set the tone for how warm and welcoming we found this place. A fabulous holiday lodge!

  • "Our hosts, Barbara & Peter Murray, were lovely people who made sure we were happy with our accommodation and everything in general."

    We were greeted with a scone, butter and jam some milk and tea, which was very welcome after our mission of a trip to get to there. They were on hand but never intrusive and were informative of the local area and further afield. The apartment was small and compact but was just right for two people and we had enough space for the two weeks we were there. The only thing lacking was a DVD player but we brought our own along as we came by car. The views were wonderful and we ate our meals looking out and enjoying them. Youghal was a charming seaside town that has seen some difficult times but is determined to thrive and it does very well. The beach is good and there are notable places to eat and drink. The town is well served by three large supermarkets. We had wonderful weather during our stay and even managed a few days on the beach. We love Ireland and the Irish people are so friendly and welcoming. We hope to go back one day.

    It is very close to the transition area (easy walk) and an ideal spot. The apartment had everything we needed-including off street parking, laundry, and heat. Barbara met us with scones, jam and butter. She and her family are extraordinary and we are grateful for the opportunity to enjoy their hospitality.

  • "Summerfield Lodge was everything we could have wished for."

    Barbara and Peter made us very welcome and had left us butter, jam and milk for something to eat on arrival and a lovely vase of flowers which I really appreciated. The cottage was very well equipped and extremely comfortable and quiet. Everything you could want for a restful holiday. Youghal itself was a very nice, interesting town and a walk along the boardwalk is a must. We would highly recommend this property and would love to use it again.

  • "Youghal is a lovely town in Ireland on the south coast with lovely scenery close to the seaside and with great history."

    We were able to visit towns in Waterford and Cork easily by car. Accommodation at Summerfield Lodge cottage was fabulous and comfy, fully fitted with all appliances so we could self cater buying supplies at Youghal. We had lovely sea views from the cottage and friendly owners Barbara and Peter offered every assistance and good chats so we had a great 5 days there as part of 3 weeks in Ireland. We will definitely recommend this place to friends in Australia.

  • "We enjoyed the proximity of the property to the beach ."

    The proprietors Barbara and Peter Murray were very welcoming and can't do enough for their guests . There's a pub called Farrells next to the guest house with the the most welcoming staff and customers . The town of Youghal is a very pleasant walk or drive from the guest house . It has wonderful cafés, restaurants and pubs and is steeped in history . I would recommend a visit to the medieval church and gardens . We will make a return visit very soon .

  • "In my opinion the way the cottage was portrayed on your website was misleading."

    It gives the impression of a decent sized open plan kitchen/lounge when in fact it is absolutely tiny. The 15" screen television is wall mounted nearly at ceiling height and the sound was poor. There were cobwebs throughout the cottage. The cleanliness of the "ensuite" shower and toilet was of a very poor standard. The floor was filthy, the shower screens and tile grouting were covered in mould and there were cobwebe all over from the top to the bottom. I met Mrs Murray once, just briefly, and did not feel welcomed at all. The only good point was the bed was extremely comfortable and the bed linen and towels could not be faulted. I think it is fair to say, therefore, we will not be considering a return visit and would never recommend this property to anyone.

  • "We managed to choose one of the hottest weeks of the year!"

    The beach was wonderful and only a short walk away. Also only a short walk away the greyhound racing was a new experience for us which we really enjoyed. Lots to see and do around Youghal itself - steeped in history. We also visited Dungarvan, the Jameson Distillery at Midleton, and Cobh, where The Heritage Centre and the Titanic Experience are both well worth visiting, especially if you have ancestors who emigrated. Only disappointment was there was no fish to catch!

    At 2 miles out of town I think you would have to be a very quick walker Also there is nowhere to hand your Coates apart from over the back of the chair and they kept slipping off Apart from them two issues this is a very nice place to stop and the owner is very very pleasant and knowledgable

    Could not fault the cottage. Barbara and her Husband are great hosts. Will hopefully be returning. A very nice touch were the scones and jam, plus flowers. My wife and I are keen walkers, so the 2 miles too town was not a problem. There are 2 convenience stores within a 10 minute walk also. And the views over the bay are great.
