  • "Loved our little cottage; perfect location, so peaceful."

    The beds were comfortable and after a long drive and ferry journey, the welcome bottle of wine was great. The kitchen was well equipped although we would recommend the additon of an oven glove and a wooden spoon! We were sorry to leave.

  • "Fern Cottage was scrupulously clean and very comfortable."

    Situated on a quiet country road with beautiful countryside views from the garden, it was nice just to be able to chill and listen to the birdsong or take the dog for a walk without having to drive anywhere. Hosts Hugh and Tara left a most generous welcome pack in the fridge, we were even given some freshly dug potatoes from the family farm.

    It's in such a peaceful,beautiful area just surrounded by countryside & of course the wildlife that goes with that.The bungalow is in lovely condition & has everything you need for a wonderful stay. Hugh & Tara were very helpful when I was there locking myself out the house with the dog locked inside sorted me with a spare key in minutes. The free view TV was nice in the evenings & the WiFi is of a good speed. Very nice gesture as well being left the ingredients for a full Irish breakfast or two, was much appreciated.

Situated on the estuary where the River Blackwater meets the sea is the seaside resort of Youghal in County Cork. Just across the water from this popular coastal destination is County Waterford, making this a wonderful spot to explore both counties. The historic 12th century town walls still remain and Youghal was once a busy port town and today you can enjoy a stroll along the prom and gaze at the boats docked in the harbour.

Youghal is also home to an excellent 18 hole golf course and the Aura Leisure Centre with a gym and 25 metre pool.
