Youghal at a Glance

The town of Youghal dates from early Christian times and mirrors many facets of Irish History, blending the heritage of centuries with a modern Seaside Holiday Resort. Situated on the South Cost of Ireland, at the mouth of the River Backwater, it is only 30 miles east of Cork City. The Town Walls of Youghal date back to the 13th century and are among the best preserved in Ireland. The Clock Gate, built in 1777, to replace the Medieval Trinity Gate, straddles the Main Street, and Tynte's Castle is a 15th century Fortified Tower.
The remains of the 14th century Benedictine Abbey - St. John's Priory, The Red House, a fine 18th century Queen Anne Style Town House and the Alms Houses, built in 1610 and still in use, are all situated in the town. Myrtle Grove is the 16th century house and home of Sir Walter Raleigh, and St. Mary's Collegiate Church is one of the oldest churches still in use in Ireland, dating from 1220. The main street of Youghal has attractive 19th century shop fronts on the original Medieval Sites. The Heritage Centre Exhibition tells the story of Youghal from early times. Walking Tours of the town, following in the footsteps of Sir Walter Raleigh, Edmund Spenser and Sir Richard Boyle, are available daily in season at 11a.m. and lasts approximately 90 minutes. Youghal boasts one of the finest and safest beaches in Ireland, with E.U. Blue Flags Award. Youghal has a wide variety of sports, clubs and venues. A visit is a must to Youghal Visitor Centre, Market Square, Youghal.


Hi Mary

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful experience of staying with you. I'm so glad that we decided to stay in Youghal for a night and even happier that we stayed with you. Your house was just perfect for us, your breakfast was one of the best I had in Ireland, and you were just so sweet.

Hi Mary

What a wonderful break we had in Youghal. helped by the most welcoming host of Glen House B and B, we couldn't have asked for better hospitality. The breakfast was amazing and Mary catered to our specific timings as well as our tastes. The room was large and had a beautiful view looking out to the sea. Our host also acted as a tour guide, advising us of restaurants and pubs we must see as well as the best towns, villages and attractions.
Perfect stay with a perfect host.

Thanks again Mary.

The host was simply spectacular. She greeted you with the biggest smile and made you feel right at home. I had to leave early in the morning and she was more than accommodating to my needs. I would recommend that anyone passing through stay with her.

What makes a Bed & Breakfast an experience you won't forget? 1. A host who makes you feel at welcome from the first second. 2. An accommodation that makes you feel comfortable from the start. 3. A hearty breakfast tailored to your taste, that makes you want to stay for many more days. 4. An immaculate cleanliness and order that make you enjoy the house. 5. Decent furniture, neatly decorated, a comfortable bed, what else. 6. Extra hints to explore the area, simply someone who makes your life easy. All the above and a lot more, Mary has to offer in her fabulously located home, in which she kindly accepted us. A highly recommended B & B in one of the most spectacular towns we have seen in Ireland, not only as of the beach, but as of the long history that is still evident. We are looking forward to our next visit. See you Mary!
