Luxury Rooms & Accommodation in Youghal
At Devon View we provide lovely accommodation and a warm welcome for all our guests. Abbey View, recent addition to our B&B, is a very special and unique Regency house with a rich and distinctive history going back three centuries. Originally built as an Almshouse in the early 18th Century, Abbey View became a school house some time later. In the early 1830’s the building was extended to become a stylish family home with Georgian grandeur and splendour.
Sadly, by the 21st century, the house had deteriorated and was in very poor condition and so began a long renovation and repair process. We painstakingly restored all the original features in order to ensure authenticity. Notably, the original 19th century front door, Victorian tiled floors and a beautiful 1910 stained glass door leading to the grand Georgian staircase. Abbey View has finally regained its wonderful character and glorious charm and now our guests can enjoy this handsome building.
Our beautiful rooms have original fireplaces, magnificent window frames, covings. Each of our guest rooms is unique and each has its own character. All furnished with luxurious beds, high quality bedding and sumptuous mattresses for good night rest and carefully chosen original and modern furniture to compliment it. Bedrooms have free internet access, flat screen TV and tea & coffee making facilities. Our rooms are en-suite with marble tiled shower rooms. One bedroom has a separate private shower room (Room 15). Rooms are located on 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors and are strictly non-smoking. Number of them have partial views of sea and Blackwater river estuary. Our guest lounge is located on the ground floor and is open to all guests to relax by the fire, read or just unwind.
We hope guests enjoy staying in a beautiful, historic house that is both characterful and idiosyncratic located in the centre of Youghal.
