Description

A perfect Family Holiday home from home, with space for all the family to enjoy, breathtaking sea views and just a short stroll into town or to the beach. You don't need to use your car unless you want to visit other special places and sights in the area.

4 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.

4 Clifton - Luxury accomodation for all the family

4 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

4 Clifton - Luxury accomodation for all the family

4 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.

4 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.

4 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.

What's New for 2016?

We love the fact that our Guests usually rate us as 5 Stars. But, even so, we are always trying to improve - to make 3 and 4 Clifton the very best seaside self-catering in Ireland. Our latest additions are:

Upgraded Superfast Broadband

Our previous broadband was good, but we have upgraded as soon as we could. Our broadband now runs at around 30MB/s which is really quick, particularly here in Ireland. And its still free, of course, for our Guests.

Insider's tips

Our Guests have always asked about the area and we've tried to offer advice before... but now we've taken that to whole new level. Martin has spent ages selecting and compiling an exhaustive list of all the places we recommend that you see, things to do, places to visit, places to eat, beaches and activities. We've also added some selections that have been highly praised by previous Clifton Guests too. It's a personal selection for our Guests and so we call it the Clifton Club Directory, you can find it on our website.

Personalised Itinerary

Our Clifton Club Directory has dozens entries and will continue to grow, but there are too many things to do for one holiday, and our Guests are different ages and want different things. And so we have created a Personalised Itinerary Service for our Guests (free of course). When you book with us we'll ask your about your Group, their ages and interests, etc. From your replies Martin will personally select a suggest Itinerary of places to see, things to do, places to eat. He'll even help out if there is something in particular you want to organise. Your itinerary will be sent to you before you arrive so that you can plan your trip.

Bike Storage

Some Guests like to bring their own bikes, but the we had nowhere to store them. We are creating a bike storage area for each house, so that your bike can be stored secure and dry and out of the way. PS: We love cycling around here, there are lots of easy routes and plenty to challenge the more adventurous. You can hire bikes locally too, all details are in the Clifton Club Directory.

Further details

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.

You will find a link to our private website and online booking in the contact details below.

Further details outdoors

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.

Location description from owner

The Province of Munster 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.

Youghal

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.
