House for 8, Overlooking Sea
House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
You can enjoy the view throughout your stay. A short stroll into town or to the beach, you dont need to use your car.
3 Clifton is one of just 6 Victiorian townhouses that were built to the highest standards over 130 years ago. After years of renovation and restoration we created this fabulous luxury townhouse. 3 Clifton is a listed property in a heritage area.
3 Clifton - Luxury accomodation for all the family
3 Clifton has been renovated to the highest standards to offer you luxury and comfort whilst retaining some of its original character.
There are 2 spacious double bedrooms, 1 twin and a bunk-bedroom (perfect for kids). Bedrooms are fitted with solid oak furniture and other luxury touches. Double beds are queen sized. Beautiful linen is provided to wrap you in luxury while you go to sleep to the sound of the lapping waves beneath you.
The huge lounge occupies the middle floor with double aspect windows, sofas beside the open fireplace and window seats to soak up the views and atmosphere. There is a large flat panel high definition TV, DVD and Video players, plus multichannel Sky TV available. Youll also find free wireless broadband internet access.
On the ground floor the modern styled kitchen diner provides every essental luxury and the space to dine in style. The kitchen is equipped with a double oven and ceramic hob (all electric), dishwasher, fridge, wine cooler, toaster, kettle and Nespresso coffee machine (well supply some coffee - but you might want to bring some more with you).
In the diner section there is an extendable table that will seat at least 8, plus an easy chair, window seats and flat panel TV - its another relaxing seating area (you are on holiday after all!).
At the very top of the house is a full size bathroom, there is a toilet on the mid level and a separate power-shower room with toilet too.
On the ground floor the utility room has both washing machines and tumble dryer - although you can get service washes in Youghal town centre if you cant be bothered.
Outside there a huge patio, with seating for 8 . What a fabulous place for breakfast or for a barbeque.
The house is approached by a easy paved slope and is elevated above the road affording fabulous views over the river and out to sea.
3 Clifton is a 3 storey house, and there are 42 low-rise stairs to the top, arranged in 6 short flights of stairs. The stairs should present no issues for an able person of any age. Our children had no trouble with the stairs even when they were toddlers and were helping us prepare the house for guests: a stair-gate is included so that you can keep the stairs off limits if you wish. Older guests should have no problems, and of course they can always selec t the bedroom on the middle floor so that they dont need to climb to the top at all. However, we do not recommend 3 Clifton for the infirm.
3 Clifton - The best address in Youghal
In the days when the six Clifton houses were built Youghal was smaller town and these houses created the space, views and ambiance unavailable in the close confines of the town - they still do.
Any yet the town is just a stroll away, no need to drive or for taxis, its just 1 minute stroll to the nearest pub and restaurant. You can stroll to all of Youghals main town centre attractions within 5/10 minutes.
The nearest beach is a 1 minute walk away too, you are looking down upon it from the house. The main Strand beach is less just 1/2 mile stroll along the promenade. There are secluded coves even closer, great rock pools to explore and the diving rocks. To get to these you cross the road, walk 100 yards to the right and take the steps down to them.
Shopping - well you can stock up in the large supermarkets in town including Tesco and SuperValu. But there is a really well stocked minimarket just a 1 minute walk away, beside the nearest pub, and the nearest beach, and a large grassy park for the kids to run around ( I guess you get the message - you dont need your car).
Just 10 minutes walk (along the promenade) or 1 minutes drive to the brand new public swimming pool, gum, sauna, water slide complex. Its open 7 days a week, 3 pools to suit babies, new swimmers and competent swimmers. The gym is fantastic, with over 50 pieces of equipment, music and sky TV to divert you. Its open to all up to 10pm on many nights - pay as you go.
Read the reviews and most of the guests rave about the views from the front windows, particulary from the window seat on the main lounge. They are right, the views are spectacular - taking in the Atlantic ocean to the South, the hills and mountains of county Waterford to the East, the river Blackwater to the North and the beautiful river estuary right in front.
The river meets the sea directly in front of the house, and many guests happily while away the hours watching the ebb and flow of the tides, the fishing and leisure boats drifting by and the wildlife. Maybe its the latter they they are particularly watching for, because on bright sunny days, when the sea is calm we have had multiple pods of dolphins cavorting right in front of us - its certainly a sight to see. Of course they are not there to give us a show, and they don't come on demand they are not tamed in any way and are hunting the mackerel shoals that are plentiful in summer months and which they have chased into the estuary.

At the back there is little to see, but its very quiet and secluded. All of the views are to the front, where you look out unobstructed upon a magnificent view of the bay. 3 and 4 Clifton where built as a pair and have always shared a patio at the front. We are lucky to own them both and we have maintained the patio for our guests. From it you can sit and dine alfresco, admiring the view as you do.
The houses have a slightly elevated position above the promenade and you can therefore enjoy the views from the patio in total privacy.
While we have our house advertised on this website, we do not run the bookings from here. The reason is simple, we just don't have the time to manage multiple booking systems. All bookings, quotations and availability is exclusively handed on our own website.

The County Cork region
Cork is Ireland's third city and has always been an important seaport. Today the River Lee flows through the city in 2 main channels, so that you find yourself constantly crossing bridges. Some of the main streets are built over channels where ships nuzzled their anchor chains a century ago. The best way to see what the city has to offer is to go by foot.
County Cork is located in the Southwest of Ireland. It is Ireland's largest county in terms of area and contains the island's third largest city, Cork City. Much of County Cork is dominated by the Atlantic Ocean. Visitor attractions in County Cork include The Old Midleton Distillery, Blarney Castle, the Beamish and Crawford Brewery, Fota Wildlife Park, and Bantry House and Gardens. Cork is easily accessible from the rest of Ireland and by ferry and plane. Popular places to stay outside of Cork City but in County Cork are Youghal, Kinsale, Schull, Bandon, Bantry, Skibbereen and Blarney.
The quaint town of Youghal is just a stroll away and you will find many bars, pubs and good quality restuarants and cafes there. Many of the pubs have live music especially at the weekends and Bank Holidays so whether you are looking for Traditional Irish, folk or rock you will find somethign to your taste.
A great attraction of Youghal is the beautiful, long unspoiled beaches - 2 of The nearest beaches are Blue Flag designated and are only 5 minutes walk away. There are secluded coves even closer, great rock pools to explore and the diving rocks next to the Lighhouse.
Shopping - you can stock up in the large supermarkets in town including a large 24 hour Tesco and a local SuperValu. But there is a really well stocked minimarket just a 1 minute walk away, beside the nearest pub, and the nearest beach, and a large grassy park for the kids to run around. Cork City is a vibrant, interesting place to visit whether for shopping or sight seeing and is only 40 minutes drive from Youghal.
