We had our wedding here on 6/5/22. From the moment we walked in the door to view the hotel we were won over instantly. Our wedding was amazing and it’s thanks to all the staff especially Michael Jason and Tomas. The food is just exceptional I’ve never had nicer. The hotel is spotless from the rooms to bar to bathrooms. The views are spectacular. We couldn’t recommend this hotel highly enough especially if your considering your wedding here. They all went above and beyond for us nothing was too much. Wish we could do it all again and rest assured we will be regulars of this special place from here on in. Thanks again guys x

One of the best decisions we made after we decided to get married was to have our Wedding at the Walter Raleigh Hotel. The Assistance from the Manager Michael in the lead up to the weekend was "absolutely" superb. The food, service and catering over the whole weekend was second to none The location of the hotel on the Youghal seafront is spectacular, all of the rooms are unique very well furnished and stylish. Nothing was too much trouble from any of the staff, just to mention a few of the team, Leon, Sabrina, Tomasz and Jason we thank you and all the other team members for all your hard work. We walked in as strangers but left as friends. Rosarie & Finbarr

Well what can I say about this hotel!!! We’re just back from a two night stay for a family wedding and none of us can speak highly enough of it! We had the best weekend which was made even better by the staff at the hotel. From the waiters and waitresses, to the girls and boys attending to the bedrooms, all the way up to the managers, they were fantastic! They had three weddings over that weekend and must’ve been shattered, but there was nothing that was too much trouble for them. The bedrooms are so comfortable and the food was beautiful. Don’t want to say too many more nice things about the Walter Raleigh in case I can’t get a room again!!!!

I recently stayed in this wonderful hotel with 9 girlfriends. From the moment we arrived until we left we were so well looked after. The hotel was recently refurbished to a very high standard . We all had beautiful rooms with wonderful views of the sea. All toiletries were from The Irish Company which was very impressive. The food in the bar was just gorgeous, we had lunch and dinner in the bar and every one of our dishes were nicer than each other. The staff are so helpful and welcoming in particular Jason and Michael. The hotel is in a great location across the road from a small beach and less than 5 minutes from the town. It is excellent value for money and we will definitely be returning

We spent last night in the Hotel and enjoyed our visit. The place was recently redecorated and is very nice. Our sea view room was perfect, the view was lovely for our breakfast in the room. The food was very good. The best part of our time in the hotel was time spent chatting to Leon in the bar. He's a super guy, so friendly and attentive. He gave us great advise on local attractions. He gave us reason to revisit Youghal. Sometimed you meet someone doing a job they are born to do and Leon was one of those. Thank you so very much. Olive and Liam Ivess

We recently had our wedding at The Walter Raleigh and we can honestly say that we had the best day ever! Amazing food as always, lovely staff, gorgeous decor and a well stocked bar ;) Michael, Emma, Jason and all the staff couldn't have looked after us any better, we would highly recommend any couples looking for a wedding venue to go for a walk around. You will get a lovely homely feel whilst also receiving 4* treatment and you really couldn't ask for better views from the bridal suite.
