Ferrypoint House, Youghal


Ferrypoint House is located in the historic seaside area of Youghal, Co.Cork on the sunny south-east coast of Ireland.
Ferrypoint House stands on a peninsula with the Atlantic ocean to your left and the River Blackwater to your right.

This century old cottage has been totally renovated into luxury accommodation while still retaining it's old world charm. Finished to the highest standards, and impeccably kept, you're be delighted by luxury of this spectaculat holiday home for six. We have a large number of unspoiled beaches spanning the coastline surrounding the ferrypoint offering swimming, sunbathing, coarse fishing, sea angling, canoeing, sailing, scuba diving, wind surfing & water sking. Just across the harbour is the historic walled resort town of Youghal, just 200 yards by boat, but a 6 mile drive around the lovely estuary. Youghal is a beautiful and historic town with lots to see and do. The small seaside village of Armdore is closer, with its fantastic beaches, round tower and 7th century abbey, restaurants and pubs. The surrounding areas of Cork and Waterford are right at hand and present other great days out. Making Ferrypoint Cottage the ideal base to tour the south of Ireland.

There are just two cottages here, and water on 3 sides. set out of the cottage ona onto teh beach to stroll, swim or fish. Ferrypoint cottage offer's both luxurious seclusion, and easy access to the full range of facilities, shops and restaurants of Youghal and Ardmore.)

A fabulous property in a gorgeous location - especially if the sun shines! The quality of the fixtures was excellent. The one slight downside was that the bathroom is in need of a revamp (although clean and perfectly usable) a bigger shower cubicle and the addition of a bath would be a bonus. The single bathroom is also a constraint if more than 3-4 people are staying. The owner - Pat - couldnt have been more helpful. He travelled to Cork to buy a baby bath for us to use :-) We would definetly recommend the property.

The fabric of the property, the fixtures and furnishings were all of a high standard and presented many interesting features. The house was presented warm and very clean. The location is virtually unique with super views through 360degrees. The central heating maintained a more than adequate temperature despite the bitter cold February East wind. This was supplemented by the massive wood burning stove which was fueled throughout the week with drift-wood from the adjacent beach. The collection of the wood was in itself an interesting task. (We will bring axe and saw next time!). Overall a very enjoyable stay which we hope to repeat.
Lovely house, with wonderful views. Owner very accommodating and friendly. 1 shower for 4 bedrooms may be a problem, but was ok for us The house is better than the photos and description. I would definitely stay here again
We read a review saying that the pictures on the internet did not do it justice and we agree. It was an amazing property and we enjoyed the surrounding little towns as they were easy to get to, had lots of character and the people were very friendly. We enjoyed meeting the owner as well and hearing about the heritage of the cottage.
First Class in every way, the accomodation was comfortable, well equipt, warm and homely. The location has to be a unique position and I will be recommending this for anyone and everyone who wants to visit Ireland. We had a most enjoyable stay and we were fortunate to meet the owners Daughter who on finding that we were out of coal went and collected some to return the same evening.
Beautifully maintained century cottage to use a base for seeing south-east Ireland. Could easily be my own home. Should bring your own telephone. Would return in a heartbeat. The directions to cottage were clear and easily followed. Youghal is a lovely seaport town.
This house is in a beautiful location. It is very tastefully decorated and well maintained. The perfect place for a relaxing holiday.
