The place is lovely, not stayed in a Boutique B&B before but it was wonderful. Youghal was just one of many stops on a tour of Southern Eire, and the mix of the town and this B&B works wonderfully. Parking right outside is helpful and it's a gentle four minute stroll to the high street and the pubs and eating... More

We have stayed in some great b&b's and this one is right up there with the best. The owners are excellent hosts. We had room 2 and had someone above us but didn't experience too much noise. The room was gorgeous, the bathroom was well appointed with shower gel provided etc. This was the only place out of 4 that... More

This is a lovely old house. My room was spacious, well appointment and had a nice view to the river. However, sleep quality is the most important thing and that is where this BnB is lacking. There needs to be more sound insulation between the first and second floor. I was awoken by the stomping of feet of guests arriving... More

Dear percy28, Thank you for taking the time to make your views known. We were quite upset to learn that you were generally unhappy during your short, overnight stay as we felt we had done everything we could to accommodate you quickly and make you relaxed and comfortable while you were here. As we recall, you arrived exceptionally early (before... More

We stayed here on the last leg of our 2 week tour of Ireland . Lila and David were perfect hosts and we had an immaculate room on the first floor overlooking the bay. Parking fine and safe outside the b & b and plenty of choice locally for places to eat without having to drive. Youghal is a lovely... More

What a great place! Stopped here while touring the south-east, we weren't planning on staying in Youghal, but this lovely B and B lured us into spending the night. It was very tasteful, a beautiful room, spotless. Leila and David were great hosts, very welcoming. We enjoyed a great breakfast, and good nights sleep. I would definitely recommend it to... More

This B&B is far better than any hotel we stayed at during are trip around Ireland . The oversized en suit room was a pleasant surprise. Lila welcomed us with a cheerfully warm welcome and was extremely helpful on pointing us in the right direction for pub and food experience. The b&b was absolutely beautiful, and elegantly decorated. The breakfast... More

Dear Sean, We are really glad that our B&B provided the perfect start to your holiday in Ireland. We really appreciate that you took the time to let others know about Youghal which we feel should be a destination in it's own right as the area has so much to offer. You were delightful guests and we'd love to see... More

We stayed in Youghal on June 2, 2015 and were fortunate to have booked with La Petite Auberge, Such a beautiful and SPOTLESSLY clean B&B. Much larger room than most B&B's and beautifully decorated. Loved the proprietors, so friendly, and yet unobtrusive, Helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. Would love to go back again!

Had excellent overnight stay in this B&B. Really lovely house and decor - comfortable room. Breakfast very good with nice choice, fresh fruit and good coffee! Friendly and welcoming hosts. Very good value too. This is the way a B&B should be run!
