About this listing
A double room situated with views of the Blackwater and Knockmealdown mountains with ensuite bathroom in a sensitively converted traditional Irish cottage. Private sitting room, garden, near michelan starred restaurant, The Cliff House, beaches...
This really is a unique space. Irish cottages are renown for their character and quirky arrangement of rooms, where no two are alike. I fell in love with this style of house 20 years ago when my family moved here from England, but never expected to own one of my own! They are a throwback in time and these days are becoming rarer due to the costs of renovation, something I was ignorant of when first taking on such a project.
We are happy to share our kitchen with you, where we cook on an aga. You may prefer to eat separately in which case there is a little room off the kitchen for breakfast. As a family we rarely use the sitting room, so this is yours for your stay.
Interaction with guests
I would be delighted to make recommendations of where to visit in the local area. There is a great deal to see not least the beaches, and more than a handful of exceptional restaurants to include the Cliff House Hotel, Ardmore (10 minutes away), the Tannery Dungarvan (25 minutes away) and Ahernes (5 minutes away), Ballymaloe House (40 mintues away) and Ballymaloe Cookery School is a 40 minute drive and has a wonderful garden and cafe. In addition there are several very beautiful houses and gardens open to the public along the Blackwater. Stunning and part of a wonderful tapestry of local history. Youghal itself has a faded beauty, from the days when it was a significant seaside resort.
Other things to note
Cork airport is a 45 minute drive from Ballycrompane.
Well....polite and tidy, naturally.

We live in a beautiful part of the world and love to share with our guests. Our home is an old Irish cottage and retains many of the original features mixed in with contemporary design. I run an online business called I am of Ireland selling Irish craft and art. Loved reading, writing and the countryside! Life motto 'Peace and Harmony'
