No rush, peace and calm to drink in the abundant historical past within and without the walls of the church

“History Junkies will love this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

The collegiate church and graveyard is a film set waiting to be discovered. The church itself is very interesting...but do spend some time in the amazing graveyard which reflects the lives of the higher social classes from times past.

“Beautiful 13th century church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

We stopped in Youghal specifically to see the walls, and stopped to see this lovely church and the adjoining cemetery. I love the contrast of the stone walls and the beautiful wood beam arch ceiling. There's also some gorgeous stained glass windows. If you're in Youghal and don't have time to do the entire Heritage Trail tour, we recommend that you at least stop to see the walls and St. Mary's.

“Most fascinating building in Youghal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

We spent three hours in this historic church and grounds which span over 800 years of Irish history. Absolutely fascinating with very enthusiastic local caretaker/guides who can answer every question about the history of the place.
