Welcome to Summerfield Lodge


Summerfield Lodge is located in Youghal in the County of Cork, set on an acre of garden overlooking Youghal Bay and Ballyvergan Marsh, (a natural conservation area). We are on the western side of the town centre overlooking the beach which is approximately 400 metres from our house. Youghal’s famous Clockgate Tower is 1.5Km from Summerfield Lodge. There is ample parking off-street in front of the house for our guests. While we are in a residential area it’s a quiet area. Farrells Pub is a two-minute walk from Summerfield Lodge, should you decide on “one for the road”!

We hope you like what have seen so far, we look forward to welcoming you to our home. We have lived here for 21yrs having sold our farm, our three children have grown and moved on. We have visiting grandchildren most days, so this is very much a family home.

While operating the bed and breakfast just over three years, I am not totally new to the business, having operated Summerfield Lodge as a B&B from 1999 to 2004, I enjoyed it then, while it was very different as there was no internet, guests called to the door or we operated a “Bush Telegraph” system with the other B&Bs in town and it actually worked. We are a small operation with three bedrooms and a cottage for self-catering guests. We do try to go over and above and give a warm Irish welcome, i.e the Céad míle Fáilte (hundred thousand welcomes), so whether it’s giving you help and advice for your onward journey, booking a restaurant or simply giving you a drive to town, we do try to make your stay as hassle-free and enjoyable as possible.
