“Absolutely Brilliant Stay in Top Quality Apartment”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very well organised accommodation. Gemma met us and confirmed the arrangements for the stay when we arrived in Ireland. Everything was of great quality, modern and homely - with Panoramic views of the Bay of Youghal. The bed and bedding was extremely comfortable, in a great location. Would visit this venue again.

“Absolute home from home !”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is the second time we've stayed at the Old Monastery and From the moment we arrived and received the friendliest of welcomes from Gemma, we knew we'do made the right decision to come again.
The quality of the apartment is superb and makes you feel so relaxed from the moment you arrive. After the most relaxing weeks stay, we both agreed that's there's absolutely nothing we could think of that would improve the apartment.
Thanks again to Bill and Brenda for letting us have the apartment and hopefully we'll get the chance to stay again.

“Beautiful apartment, convenient location”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This apartment feels really luxurious - has all the old world charm of deep window seats and high ceilings but also has all mod cons, sky tv, dish washer, wifi. I traveled with my husband and 2 young children, the apartment maybe isn't the most suitable for young children as it's so nicely decorated it can be a bit difficult to relax when you're shouting at your 9 year old to please sit at the table and eat that jumbo hot-dog smothered in ketchup and not on the white sofa! On the other hand, it's ground floor so you have your own patio for bbqs and the garden ends at the actual sea wall which entertained my two no end looking for jelly fish and waving at all the passing boats. To be fair they seemed to feel the apartment was perfectly suited to them and would go back tomorrow if they could. Youghal is a nice size town for walking around and all the restaurants are within walking distance which makes it nice and easy after a long day sight-seeing. Would definitely recommend it. It's a lovely spot!

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed 25 April 2015 for a stay in May 2014

Went with friends for a long weekend and had an amazing time. The apartment was wonderfully comfortable (loved the window seats in the sitting room - perfect for reading and enjoying the view from) with an excellent kitchen, large and luxurious sitting room, and comfortable beds. It was a short walk into the town for eating out, convenient for shops for picking up supplies, and within easy striking distance of lots of places to explore when the weather was good. When the weather wasn't so good it was such a lovely apartment we were quite relieved to have the excuse to stay in, and big enough that we weren't on top of each other. Thoroughly recommended.

“Stunning Apartment”
Reviewed 21 April 2015 for a stay in June 2013

The Old Monastery certainly has the WOW factor. Everything is quality from the furnishings and fittings to the views across the river to County Waterford. The luxury is combined with a peace and tranquility that descends on you the moment you enter the apartment. Situated in the town of Youghal, you are only a stones throw from the shops, bars and restaurants where you can experience the real Irish craic. A truly magical place for anyone wishing to escape the stresses of life.
