This hotel is an example of all that is excellent in
Three of us stayed in The Old Imperial Hotel when visiting Youghal last weekend and had a superb evening there. The hotel is situated a short stroll away from the seafront and after a glorious walk in the sunshine by the quays, it was back to the bar for a refreshing drink before dinner. The bar was friendly and welcoming and service quick. Dinner was spectacular, There was a wonderful range of starters, mains and desserts, and even one of our number well known for his fussiness about food and wine was rendered speechless with admiration. The service was seamless, having the unity and continuity of a great play, neither too fast nor too slow with;each course presented with perfect timing. Wine glasses were refilled invisibly, and the ambiance for dining was perfect.
Our rooms were picture perfect, with lovely views over the garden, very peaceful and quiet, with comfortable spacious beds and with quirky charming personal touches, which made for me an extraordinarily pleasant stay.
Breakfast of itself was worth visiting this excellent hotel, carefully prepared for each of us to order. And a special word of praise for the welcoming reception staff.
We will be back.
