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 Boardwalk in Youghal makes a very pleasant walk. It is 1.9 km long, so a walk down and back in 3.8 km, or about 2.4 miles. The boards are nice and springy underfoot, and with the beautiful view and sounds of the sea, it gives an enormous feeling of wellbeing.Highly recommend!

    This is a truly outstanding experience. A lovely cinema supported by locals and with exceptional staff that pull out all the stops for their visitors. 10/10 will visit again.

    St Mary's Collegiate Church, is the wonderful church of the wonderful medieval city of Youghall. The Walter Raleigh's home (Myrtle Grove), near the church, the Clock Tower, the original medieval Walls tell a fascinating story of this welcoming, full of history, city.

    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.

    My kids are 6 and 1. Great for kids above the age of 2 maybe 3.
    Amusements are good however only downfall is that the rides that need staff to monitor them or work them are really under staffed, we had to wait for the ride opposite to finish for the girl to come across and work the ride we were queuing for, this happened a few times... I was here 3 years ago and it was the same.

    We ate in the diner here, food is actually nice here, we were pleasantly surprised as places like this don't normally have good food. But I would give the food 5 stars for a kids place.

    We went into the player, we were charged €12 between the kids for 1 hour. Eldest had great fun, there's very little for kids under 2 in here. Very little only 2 small areas with very little in them. I was sitting in area at the end of the play area as the youngest made her way down there and there where no older kids in that area but we were asked to leave by a member of staff, when I said if older kids comes we will leave and she said adults aren't allowed in any of the play areas. So we then left. Really don't think kids under the age of 2 should be charged especially when there only allowed in 2 areas with very little in them.

    'Please look after these walls before its too late.
    The Town Walls are in need of a lot of TLC. Appparently the person in charge doesn't think that clearing the huge stinking piles of garden rubbish dumped from nearby residents is worth shifting so the appearance of the Historic Listed walls is really bad. The rusty scaffolding and fencing with trees growing inside is also not a credit to the caretaker of the walls. The access gates through the Sally Walls were closed for 3 years until the person in charge was challenged about the decision to keep them closed. The steps up to the walls are in urgent need of repair at the bottom from Ashe Street and they also need cleaning because when wet the green moss makes them dangerous. Signposting to the walls is also missing at the top of the steps. Apart from that, they are pretty impressive but in parts in danger of collapse because of all the Russian Vine which has been allowed to climb over the wall unchecked.

    Really sets out clearly the history of Youghal and helps in planning a visit to the town. Good visual material and some interesting artefacts. Walking tours are organized from the centre.

    Amazing place with a huge range of handmade crafts, jewellery, natural balms and candles, spectacular art, vintage clothing and accessories and many, many more. If you are looking for a gift, that is the best place to go. If you want to treat yourself with something special, that is the best place to go.
    I loved the welcome atmosphere of the gallery. The artists who run the place were very passionate and purely happy. I will come back there for sure!

    Nice idea, giving play area and green space to North side of town. Once in there it's a bit bland and not much to see or do
