Renovated to the highest standards 3 Clifton offers modern luxury and comfort whilst retaining many original Victorian features.

just across the road
There are 2 spacious double bedrooms with queen size beds, 1 twin bedroom and a bunk-bedroom that's perfect for kids. The bedrooms are fitted with solid oak furniture and other luxury touches. Quality towels are provided for all guests (although you will need to bring your own beach towels) and beautiful bed linen wraps you in luxury while you sleep to the sound of the lapping waves.

like at home :)
The huge lounge occupies the middle floor with double aspect windows facing the sea, there are sofas beside the fireplace and a large window seat/day bed to relax upon as you soak up the views. There is a large flat panel high definition TV, DVD and Video players, plus multi-channel sattelite TV. You'll also find free Broadband wireless internet access too, which operates throughout the house and on the terrace too.
On the ground floor the modern kitchen diner provides every essential luxury and the space to dine in style. The kitchen is equipped with an electric double oven and ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge, toaster and kettle. There are plentiful worktops and cupboards and all the cutlery, crockery, utensils and cooking pans you might need. In the dining section there is an extendable table that will seat at least 8, plus an easy chair, window seats and flat panel TV providing another relaxing seating area.
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 on the first landing. On the ground floor the utility room at the back of the house has a washing machine and tumble dryer and a large fridge freezer.
Outside there is a huge terrace, with seating for 8, providing a fabulous setting for breakfast or a BBQ.
The house is approached by a paved slope and is elevated above the road affording fabulous views over the river and out to sea (NB: the entirety of the slope can be seen on one of the pictures above, its just a short rise to the house, not a hike!). There is ample parking right below the house on the road. The road is broad, and at one time it was a major route on the south coast, but Youghal now has a bypass and the road only carries some local traffic - it's never busy and at night its almost totally empty. There is a complete extra lane on the near site, used for parking, so you will always find a spot outside the house.
3 Clifton is a 3 storey house, and there are 42 low-rise stairs to the top, arranged in 6 short flights of stairs. Our children had no trouble with the stairs even when they were toddlers and 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 select to use the bedroom on the middle floor so that they don't need to climb to the top at all. However, we do not recommend 3 Clifton for the infirm.
The quaint town of Youghal is just a stroll away and you will find many bars, pubs and good quality restaurants 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 something to your taste. A great attraction of Youghal is the beautiful, long unspoiled beaches - 2 of The nearest beaches are less than 5 minutes walk away. There are secluded coves even closer, great rock pools to explore and the diving rocks next to the Lighthouse.
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 mini-market 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. Just 10 minutes walk along the promenade or 1 minutes drive from Clifton is the brand new public swimming pool, gym, sauna, water slide complex. Open 7 days a week there are 3 pools to suit babies, new 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 most nights on a pay as you go basis.
