Self-catering Easter breaks: One holiday, three ways

3 and 4 Clifton are beautifully restored Victorian townhouses available for self-catering holidays in Irelands premier coastal resort. Both houses are appointed, furnished and decorated to the same exacting standards and each house can sleep up to eight guests (9 including a baby). The houses are usually booked individually but make a fantastic base if you want self-catering Ireland holiday home for a group of up to 16 guests. These are great holiday homes, overlooking the sea, a 2 minutes walk to beautiful beaches and just a stroll from the historic resort town of Youghal in County Cork, on south coast of Ireland: what we call The Irish Riviera. 3 and 4 Clifton are available for self-catering Ireland holiday rental and you can Book Online on this website.

3 & 4 Clifton are listed (heritage) properties built to the highest standards more than 130 years ago, Clifton is simply the best address in Youghal. Situated an easy, short walk from Youghal town and its famous beaches. Clifton faces the promenade and lighthouse where everyone else strolls to enjoy the view and take photos. Read the Reviews and you'll see that our self catering guests rave about the sea views, particularly from the window seat in the main lounge of each house; where you can see 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 houses, and you can while away the hours watching the ebb and flow of the tides, the fishing and leisure boats and the wildlife. Of particular delight is the chance to see pods of dolphins who visit Youghal Bay on bright sunny summer days, when the sea is calm, the tide is high and the mackerel shoals afford them a feast.

We hope that you find all of the information you need on this website, and don't forget you can check self catering availability, prices and book online too. If there are any other queries, or special requests, please don't hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to welcoming you here.
