The Heritage Trail is a great way to see a quick slice of the history of Youghal. Among other sights, you see the city gates, the old jail, and the walkway to the cells. There is a garden (complete with cannon), and of course the...More

I hope you sang that title because I just cackled like a maniac at my own joke. Anyway. The heritage trail is a great way to get to know the town, old and new. Fine weather would probably be preferable but we were there on...More

The views were amazing. If I have a criticism it is that the sign posting along the route could be better

Walk around, visit the cathedral, beautiful. Nice gardens next to it. It is one of the first towns we visited after landing and it is all I expected to find in Ireland.

The Collegiate Church of St Mary is outstanding, but the rest of the Heritage Walk is also very interesting.. We also particularly enjoyed the alms houses, Red House and the city walls.

Really beautiful setting for this cathedral with its wonderful carillon which is over one hundred years old. It's a steep uphill walk but the views of Cobh are breath-taking. Well worth the visit.

Yes in theory John however alot of it is based around the streets of Youghal, as you would expect, which can be narrow in places with alot of moving up and down onto the pavement, and busy. Also a little hill up to the... More
