Youghal

Youghal, where the past meets the present at the mouth of the River Blackwater, is an historic walled port and a modern seaside resort. Youghal Visitor Centre offers a unique starting point from which to explore the exciting history of the town. Guided walking tours direct the visitor through the most notable areas. Following in the footsteps of Sir Walter Raleigh, Edmund Spenser and Sir Richard Boyle, the visitor is taken through the medieval streets. Spanned by the 18th century clock tower, these have Victorian shop fronts standing shoulder to shoulder with 13th century and 16th century dwellings. (Youghal - meaning Yew Tree).
