Just had to come on and share our wonderful experience of Carleton Village. Both myself and my husband have spent two lovely weeks in Youghal with our 17 month old toddler.
We booked a fortnight 'off peak' at the holiday homes and secured a great rate with thanks to the help of some Super Valu tokens we had. On arrival we were given an complimentary upgrade to a 4 bedroom villa and a stair gate was provided. Car parking is ample and the village is well lit at night. A security code is required allowing only those resident to enter the village.
We had read the reviews here before going and have to agree with all the great compliments about this holiday village. Spotlessly clean on arrival, copious amounts of towels available, good quality furniture and fittings, bedlinen attractive and suitable and ample supply of kitchen utensils with all mod cons. The outside landscaping is very well maintained too.
The holiday village was quiet, we didn't see anyone else holidaying in the village during our stay, there are some families and young professionals residing there long term but these residents are quiet and bar hearing one neighbour having a hard time starting his old banger of a car each time he was going anywhere we had no complaints about noise or disturbance.
Our toddler had plenty of fun in the playground daily which is clean, well maintained and safe. We had a game of tennis on the courts which are in great condition and open all year round. We had been informed on booking that the kids club, outdoor pool and seasonal reception would not be available during off peak season and we had no problem with this.
Toddler was also very happy in the home, layout was safe for children and comfortable. The Jacuzzi bath was an extra treat.
Naturally spending two weeks at the holiday home we wanted to cook at home a lot, our oven temperature didn't work satisfactorily on our first night there, a text to the owner to report the issue was all that was required and the oven was repaired and in perfect working order within a few hours. Communication with the owners is great and the welcome information pack provided in each home is very informative and useful.
We availed of the discount price for residents at the local Aura pool/gym and at Perks funfair in the town. We found Youghal a useful base from which to explore East Cork.
We would certainly stay here again. We will take great pleasure in recommending this holiday village to other families.
