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.

Good for where it is
I am basing this 4 star rating on the fact that YOUGAL does not have much going on. It is a VERY quiet but quaint town. We were in town for a wedding and this was definitely the best option of where to stay. Conveniently located in town and thus walking distance from the main street. The people in the hotel are very sweet and make you feel as if you are visiting your aunt and uncle on a holiday weekend. Nothing more.

Newly renovated and clean
After finding most hotels in Cobh were not available, we stayed at this hotel in Youghal as a second location choice. The hotel was very clean and modern. It had the best shower of all the hotels we stayed in during our two week Ireland vacation, a good breakfast and a great waterview. There was plenty of free parking available, which isn't always available at Irish hotels. Even if the parking is free, finding enough spaces is not always possible. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in this area of Ireland.
