“Great Family Break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Stayed in the Quality Hotel Youghal on the 24 \ 25th March in their seaside view apartment. We stayed here with our 3 children for a weekend break. The apartment was spotless and was ideal for our needs. The apartment had a sea view and although the weather was cold the views were fantastic. Staff were friendly and the food good in the bar. Good value on Sunday with two main courses for 15 euro. In this climate nice to see value especially bringing a family away. Pool was lovely and warm and again cant say enough about staff. We went on a B+B deal and i can say we were looked after, This is the third quality hotel we have stayed in and i would certainly return. Youghal is only 5 mins away to the shops and Perks indoor entertainment centre. Will be back again. Thanks to the staff.

Room Tip: Stayed in 2 Bed apartment. Perfect for families

We stayed here for our Easter break, 2 adults and 2 children in the hotel. Our room was spacious and cleaned every day.
The food in the restaurant was beautiful and we all were very impressed.
Kids club was fantastic as it ran from 11 - 3 each day and meant us adults could visit Middleton distillery up the road (20 minutes) in peace. The kids club was ran by fully trained staff and the children loved it especially the Olympics;) They also had cinema club each evening for them from 7.30 -9 which meant we had two hours in the evening to ourselves which was an added bonus.
I had a spa treatment - 85 euro for full facial, hot stone back massage and aromatherapy bath - wow unbelievable value (ladies will know exactly what i mean here ;)) i was delighted with this and felt totally revived by the time i left.
The staff were really friendly and could not have been more helpful. My son forgot his teddy 'fluffy' which he had since he was a baby (his ten now) and when i rang the hotel they looked for it and found it and posted it to our home. I cannot tell you how much this meant to us, it showed how much they actually cared.
We loved our stay here and will definitely be back, though next time when its warmer to enjoy a beech walk in this idyllic location.
Thank you all so so much for everything.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a balcony (sea view)

Just back from a three day midweek break in one of the four bed holiday homes at the Quality Hotel Youghal. I travelled with my husband, three children and my mother for an Easter midweek break. The holiday home was incredibly well kitted out with ample space for all. Three bathrooms.!! The pictures on the website do no do them justice. They were immaculate and very well maintained. Great open spaces for the kids to play and kick ball, around the houses and at the front of the hotel. The staff at the hotel were very obliging and helpful. Kids loved the movies in the evening and of course wanted to swim all day in the leisure club. We didnt eat at the hotel but would recommend the Capri Bay in Youghal. House was easy to heat with all included in the rental. It is the best house that we have ever stayed in on a hotel. Great location for the summer, right on the beach, and will recommend it to any family or friends considering a family break in Ireland.

Really pleasantly surprised by the quality hotel in youghal. It's absolutely perfect for a family break. We went during Easter holidays for three nights self catering in a two bed apt. The rooms are clean, beds are comfy the kitchen has everything you need and the view is spectacular. The pool has a small children's pool that our three boys loved they played happily for ages. The beach was great we wrapped them up in Wellies and they had a ball running up and down in the rock pools when the tide was out. There's loads to do within a relatively close distance ... Fota, blarney castle, the titanic experience (not for the very young). The staff in the hotel couldn't do enough to help us and were always smiling and cheerful. We had a ball and will definitely be back.

We stayed for 4 nights over Easter 2013 in a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom holiday home. As we are a large family (6 in total), it was nice to have the space. I can admittedly be a little fussy when it comes to cleanliness, but everywhere was very well cleaned, just before we arrived. The showers stalls were very clean, the floors were vacuumed and mopped, the linen on the beds was fresh, and the kitchen area and everything in it was like I'd have at home. The settings for the heating and hot water were fine - after the days out with the VERY cold wind, it was nice to have a warm place and plenty of hot water to come back to.
Ample parking both directly outside accommodation and at leisure centre.
It was great to have access to the leisure centre and the astro-turf pitches.
We didnt eat at the hotel, but I can recommend The Cod Father and Capri Bay (++++) in Youghal, which was only about 10 minutes drive away.
The wind curtailed our outdoor activities sightly, but we still spent a bit of time on the beach - you need to time your visit as the high tide leaves very little beach.
The only thing negative that I would say is that the floor boards squeak quite a bit - it was not too much of an issue though. I can also imagine that a noisy family/party next door would sound quite close....
All staff that we talked to at the reception and around the accommodation were very pleasant and helpful.
Overall a great stay and I would both return here and recommend it to others...

My husband and i and children stayed in one of the 4 bedroom holiday homes over the Easter weekend. I have to say i was very pleasantly surprised with the house. Very clean and spacious and it had all the essentials we needed for a short break away. I have a few complaints about hotel and one quite important one when you have small children, there were no child locks/ safety catches on the windows upstairs. I had a 3 and four year old sharing a room and the hotel should make this a priority when the homes are mainly for families. There is a games room attached to main hotel and most of the arcade type games were broken and very worn and tatty...not something you would expect from a quality hotel!
There was entertainment for children....but definately not geered towards 11 and upwards.
In saying all this....i would recommend The quality hotel...Staff were friendly and helpful and the leisure centre is a must.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel, and being a parent I can see where you are coming from on the issue of upstairs windows. We would prefer to have restrictors on the windows but we are forbidden from installing them by the Fire Officer, as they deem the windows to be a means of escape in the event of a fire. Ironically the Fire Officer insists that we have restrictors on the windows of our apartments, and all apartment windows have them. I am glad that you were in the main happy with your break and that you would recommend / use us again in the future. Regards Allen McEnery
