Walter Raleigh Hotel, Youghal
Very Good8.0
Rainy day but great room.
We were given a room with a great view that made up for the bad weather that day. Both our room and the food were very good.

The hotel was fresh and friendly--the staff were warm and helpful, the location was great--everything was terrific. Will go back as soon as I can!

Updated Hotel with lots of charm
The Walter Raleigh was an excellent and affordable place to stay while visiting friends in the area. While the rooms were a little on the small side, the hotel was recently updated and had charm, comfort, cleanliness, walkability, excellent service, and a beautiful view. The breakfast in the morning (included with the room) was also excellent. I would definitely stay here again when in the Youghal area.

Give This Classic Hotel a Try
This is a lovely renovated hotel. We stayed in a family room with beds for four people. Usually, we are prepared to be squished, but this room was incredibly spacious. While the hotel is older, that doesn't mean dirty or run-down. Lot's of character and wonderful staff. The bathroom was recently renovated and gorgeous, although some counter space would have been nice.
