The historic port of Youghal (the old town walls, built in the 12th Century, are still intact) is one of Ireland's heritage towns and is steeped in history. Sir Walter Raleigh was Mayor of Youghal in 1588 and 1589. Youghal is on the southern coast of Ireland on the N25, 35 minutes from Cork Airport and two hours from Shannon Airport.
This area is a golfers paradise; 12 courses are within an hour's drive. The House of Waterford Crystal, Cobh, Jameson Irish Whiskey Distillery, Blarney Castle and the Rock of Cashel are all within easy driving distance. Equestrian activities, hill-walking, fishing, quad-biking and miles of sandy beaches are all available locally.
