It’s good to get away.
Even if your destination is just a half an hour down the road, leaving the daily grind behind for a night or two can give you a whole new outlook on life.
Now that foreign holidays are a faraway dream for most of us, this summer is all about nabbing some nostalgic holibobs… and where better to relive the summers of your youth than in Youghal?
If you want to make it fancy, you can book one of two stunning rooms at Roseville House, a magnificent Georgian residence built in 1838.
There’s something charming about stealing away for a night in any cosy bed and breakfast, but Roseville has all the extra touches that make it a stand-out stay.
We’re talking spacious bedrooms with king-sized beds, walk-in rain showers, flat-screen TVs and crisp white Egyptian cotton bed linen – exactly what you need after a day of exploring.
There’s even a hidden larder cupboard stocked with cereals, snacks, teas and local ground coffee and complimentary water and fresh milk in the fridge and guests are provided with a Roseville Breakfast Basket of local bakery bread, cheeses and yoghurts delivered to your room on the morning of your stay.
Each larder is equipped with a fridge, toaster, crockery and cutlery and a hot breakfast is also available from the Room Service Breakfast Menu on request.
Explore the heritage town of Youghal
Enclosed within a charming walled garden, Roseville is a casual stroll from all the restaurants, shops and bars in town.
There’s loads to explore around East Cork and if the weather cooperates you can spend the day on the sand, dipping in and out of the sea or strolling the Eco Boardwalk.
Visit the Youghal Gate Clock Tower for a bit of history (inside 700 years of local stories are brought to life through a sensory experience that includes smelling the spices in the Merchants Quarters, checking out the gaol cell and winding the enormous clock) or book a cruise along the stunning Blackwater River with Captain Tony Gallagher on ‘The Maeve’.
I’m sold. How do I book?
Roseville reopens in June with rooms fro €130 for two sharing. You can book your stay here. Call 021 2019 637 for further information.
