Overview

Youghal is a very historic walled port town with numerous interesting sites to see. It is also a modern vibrant town with blue flag beaches. In the heart of it all is Moby Dick’s Pub with its unique water front setting. Little wonder then that John Huston and Gregory Peck based themselves in Moby Dick’s Pub for the duration of the film.
