Youghal

Youghal was once the seat of power in Munster and was one of the privileged ports to import wine into Ireland without forfeiting half of the profits in taxes.

Famous landmarks include Youghal Clock Gate Tower (the symbol of the town today) built originally as a castle, then a prison, and a family home before finally becoming a tourist attraction which you can tour, St Mary’s Collegiate Church & accompanying medieval gardens. The home of Sir Walter Raleigh, famous for introducing the potato to Ireland, and the Youghal heritage only found on the Happy Feet Walking Tours. The town is also the home of Ireland’s only Town Crier who greets tourists on a daily basis.

A charming town with more than 1,300 years of history a must visit!
