“Community Radio Feile”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Youghal community radio hosted the 2014 Feile. Over 120 people arrived from community radios from all over Ireland. The staff at the hotel will excellent. Efficient and helpful. The rooms first class. The new owners of this hotel have put a lot of time and money into it's refurbishment and it she's. The food was excellent. Breakfast cooked fresh they even had poached eggs. Yum. This would be a fantastic location for a wedding or any gathering. The Walter Raleigh has really set the standard for hotels and food in Youghal. The only down side is there is no train that goes to Youghal. You need to either drive or take the train to Cork City then a bus/coach. It's well worth the journey. Youghal is an historical town. The weather can be hit and miss but then again you don't to Ireland for the weather. The hotel is situated across the road from the beach which is some 10k long. There are lots of water sports available. Sights to see and the best 99 ice cream you'll get anywhere. There are lots of cake and tea cafés in the town. As well as a large choice of restaurants including the famous Ahearns which has a long established reputation as being one if the best fish restaurants in Ireland. Lots of Traditional bars with live modern and trad music. We were in a lovely nightclub in Clancy's bar where we had the best curry and salads rice etc. all the food was so fresh and they pull a great pint of Guinness. There's a nightclub downstairs.
Stay in the Walter Raleigh and experience the real Cork. Youghal not regret it.

Stayed at the recently refurbished hotel on the weekend of 23rd to 25th May and what an enjoyable stay it was. The overall appearance of the hotel is bright and inviting. The rooms are bright and airy with great views and even better beds. The staff were warm and welcoming and great food. We had a group meal on the Saturday night and had a very attentive gentleman look after us. Well done on great refurbishment.

Stayed here for four nights. The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was very good. The bar was relaxing. The hotel was recently refurbished. The only fault I found was the wifi. The only place it was available was the lobby and was very poor there. I will return to this hotel and I hope by then there will be wifi in the bedrooms.

Several of us booked in for 2 nights B&B and 1 evening meal as we attended the local Classic Wheels show. About 15 of us stayed on the Saturday night and had a very good meal, pleasant surroundings and great attention from the staff. The rooms are clean and modern and newly decorated as is the rest of the hotel.All in all a very good stay. Only criticism would be the absence of marked parking spaces which resulted in several cars occupying 2 spaces making parking a problem in the hotel car park! Get out some paint. Highly recommended, keep it up

Room Tip: good sea view from front

My mother and I stayed here for 2 nights while we visited family. We have stayed here on numerous occasions and the last being the first time under the new management. This was one of the best stays we had. Recently renovated the hotel has taken on a new life. It is brighter and more spacious than before. Our room had the most amazing view of Youghal bay. All members of staff were friendly and efficient, they dealt with our requirements in the most professional manner and with a smile.

We stayed at the Walter Raleigh for three nights over Easter while visiting relations in Youghal. wow, it could not be more different from what it was before. it has been beautifully renovated and the décor is fresh and airy and very elegant. everything is pristine, we wondered if we were the very first people to stay in our room ( we asked, we weren't.) the food was delicious and the staff were lovely and super helpful whenever we needed anything. the room rate was extremely reasonable and we will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: this isn't a negative but it's worth noting that the hotel is on the roadfront and there is...

Myself, husband and two children recently stayed at the Walter Raleigh Hotel. What a transformation! The hotel has been completely refurbished and is absolutely fabulous. We had a beautiful family room with sea views which was spacious, clean, bright and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was really lovely, and the full Irish Breakfast was freshly cooked to order. We particularly liked the way the fried eggs were served with a tiny circle of yolk at the top - they looked like a volcano and the kids were delighted with them. The staff were all so nice and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed our stay so much, we are planning our next visit to the Walter Raleigh within the next few weeks. Looking forward to seeing you all again and thanks for a lovely stay.
