The vibrant and growing town of Midleton is situated approximately midway between the town of Youghal and the city of Cork, in the country of Ireland. A Midleton holiday is guaranteed to keep you busy as there is so much to see and do in the town as well as the surrounding area, making the destination a perfect choice for a number of travelling groups. With so much to see and do, a Midleton holiday rental cottage is a Godsend when it comes to feeling comfortable and relaxed after a busy day.
Visitors on a Midleton holiday will be pleased to hear that there are plenty of activities to fill up their days whilst away from home. In terms of physical activities the likes of golf, fishing, walking, cycling, swimming and horse riding are readily available in and around the town. Midleton is also home to the Midleton Distillery, a complex of 18th century mills and warehouses where great Irish whiskey is made to this day. The distillery has the world’s largest pot sitting proudly at the reception of the heritage centre.
If you have enough time on your trip to venture into the neighbouring county of South Tipperary, then it is worth spending the day in the village of Ballingarry. Visitors to the village will be able to get a sense of true Irish history as it is the place where the Young Irelander Rebellion took place in 1848. Ballingarry has an old farm house known as the “Famine Warhouse” where most of the action took place during the rebellion and from where an annual walk starts from to commemorate the event.
By booking a Midleton holiday rental cottage, you are guaranteed to be privy to some wonderful weather. The majority of visitors head for the town during the summer months, between June and September, as it can be as much as 19 degrees Celsius during the daytime. If you do not enjoy the warmth so much, then it is best to book a Midleton holiday for the cooler months of November, December and January when the temperature falls to around 10 degrees Celsius. The annual rainfall amount for the town is around 35 inches.
