It is also only an hours drive to Waterford or Cork cities. The house is lovely and cosy with everything you would need for a break away provided, I would highly recommend it for a lovely week away.

The bungalow was ideal for our needs for our son in a wheelchair. The bungalow is not disabled accessible, no wet room or gripper rails, but manageable. Close to Whiting Beach and Youghal closest supermarket shopping. Ardmore is not far from Cork & Waterford. Fota Wildlife Park is a great place to visit with Rare Animals & Blarney Castle is fabulous. The property was clean and spacious. With Internet access from the owners is a plus. Beautiful area, local pubs and restaurants. The weather was also kind to us. Would certainly recommend to family & friends and visit again. Thank you Declan & Helen for a fabulous stay. Graham Kate & Adam

The coach house was so so clean and all the little touches were an added bonus (milk,orange juice,butter,bread,tea,coffee,sugar etc:). We really enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave :( Thank you, we will certainly hang on to your details for future visits :)
