Stayed here over Christmas and was blown away by it. While very basic rooms, the standard is top notch. Breakfast was great, staff were sound and would definitely stay again. It's just a pity threes not much to do in Youghal anymore. Highly recommended

To say I was disappointment is an understatement. The beverage tasted like a bland, watered-down version of the fresh stuff. Similarly, the 'homemade' scone was equally as...
