My husband and I stayed in a two bedroom apartment in Carleton Village along with my parents recently. We booked the apartment through the Super Value holiday deals, so we got the week here for €300. Our first impression wasn’t great as the hallways are a bit dingy and smell a bit damp. However the apartment itself was lovely, bright and airy with beautiful views over the ocean from the living room and master bedroom windows. The bedrooms are a good large size; the ensuite especially is very large. The beds were comfortable although there were only blinds in the room, no curtains, so there was some bleed through of light in the mornings. The kitchen/dining/living area was a good size; the kitchen was very well equipped. Although a bit cramped if there was more than one person in it, it was cleverly designed to maximise space. The furniture in the living room was comfortable, but the TV was small and received a very poor picture, it was pot luck if we got any stations at all and if we did the picture was borderline unwatchable. The curtain in the living area was very shabby and looked like it was going to fall off the rod at any moment. The whole apartment was very clean.
The apartment is situated above the town, it is quite far out if you are driving, but there is a short cut if you are walking, but be warned, it does involve a steep climb. All entrances were guarded with gates which required pin numbers, so it did add a little bit of security. The pool, putting green etc was closed for the season so we didn’t get to try those.
Overall we thought this property was good. A little attention to detail would make it great. Putting up some curtains, sorting out the TV and making the entrance a little more inviting would have had me giving this place a 5 star rating. Still, for the price we paid, we thought it offered good value. Youghal is a nice town and convenient for visiting east coast of Cork.
