Youghal, Co. Cork

Youghal (Irish: Eochaill) pronounced Yawl or Y'all is built on a steep riverbank on the estuary of the River Blackwater on the coastline of East County Cork. The name of the town derives from the yew woods (Eochaill) which were once plentiful in the area.

This bustling and picturesque town is regarded as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. The historic walled seaport town of Youghal adjoins a fine 5km blue flag beach and, because of the many historic buildings and monuments within its ancient town walls, has been designated as an Irish Heritage Port by the Irish Tourist Board.

Fishing in the River Blackwater (noted for salmon, trout and excellent coarse fish), golf, sailing, angling, pitch and putt and yachting are just some of the facilities that are located either nearby or in the town.
