Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The woman at the tourist office was super helpful: making a call for us to a boat charter company, urging us to see their history exhibit, and pointing out places to visit on the map. It is located by the water and we had to ask two people before we finally found our way there, but it was so worth the stop.

I am not happy to write about it, but my last experience from visiting Youghal was very disgusting !!! Dog poop on the footpaths ,street ,beach and boardwalk . My child was playing with the sand on the beach and had hands dirty with the poop .Bicycle tyres dirty as well . Everyone should be able to enjoy this beautiful place ,but it is hard when you have to be careful not to step on the poop .This place is like minefield of poop ! It looks like dog owners are complete ignorants. Time to do something about it ! They should start thinking about other people especially kids and people on the wheelchairs . At the moment this place is not safe !

Youghal is a scenic town located by the sea. The historic walk is easy to do. It takes you around the historic area and where Sir Walter Raleigh lived. The churches are fascinating and have a lot of history attached to them. There is also a lovely garden to visit and seaside area. We thought it was great.

The historic quarter of Youghal is well worth a look around. There is a faded glory about it all . From the clock tower to the Catholic church to Raleigh house to the alms house and walshes tower is a short circuit and should be done by all visitors to the town

The Heritage Trail is a great way to see a quick slice of the history of Youghal. Among other sights, you see the city gates, the old jail, and the walkway to the cells. There is a garden (complete with cannon), and of course the city walls. A nice hike with informative placards with historical information.

Best way to see the historical sites, of this wonderful town. With map in hand (which we got from the info centre) and the downloaded App. We proceeded on the heritage trail which we found, to be incredibly interesting, (allow plenty of time to take it all in). The highlight of the trail was exploring The Raleigh Quarter, (an in depth self guided tour of St Mary's Collegiate Church and area). Definitely a must do when visiting Youghal.

I hope you sang that title because I just cackled like a maniac at my own joke.
Anyway. The heritage trail is a great way to get to know the town, old and new. Fine weather would probably be preferable but we were there on an overcast day and still got good views over the town. We went into the Clock Gate Tower and St Mary's Collegiate Church. Walking through the College Gardens, we marvelled at just how well Youghal's historic sites have been preserved. That those gardens can be seen on the oldest maps of the town is a small wonder and something to be proud of.

The views were amazing. If I have a criticism it is that the sign posting along the route could be better
