Living in Youghal

Irelands Finest Coastal Resort

There are a number of reasons why people choose to live in Youghal, Co Cork, but on top of everyones list will always be the beauty and peacefullness of being near the sea.

Whether living in the town centre, alongside the historic quays and buildings, at the top-of-the-town looking across Youghal Bay to County Waterford or in the Strand area with its links to the town's great maritime history, Youghal is a place of great natural beauty and history.

The choice to live in or visit Youghal is supported by its close proximity and easy accessibility to Cork City and International Airport (45km), Waterford city and airport (90km) and Rosslare Ferry Port (190km).

Youghal's educational facilities include three primary schools (one Gaelscoil) and the amalgated state-of-the-art greenfield secondary school which opened in September 2006.

Youghal is known for its modern and progressive sporting club and facilities which include GAA, Soccer, Cycling, Tennis, Athletics, Rugby and Golf.  A brand new swimming pool complex is now open right on the beach!

The newly refurbished Mall Arts Centre on the picturesque Blackwater River hosts local performance groups such as Youghal Musical Society, Youghal Little Theatre Company, High Spiritis Youth Performers and Dancing Through the Ages who put on exciting shows throughout the summer.  All of Youghal's established clubs and groups are always open to new members.

At the Visitor Centre in the Market Square, The Tourist Office and Youghal Heritage Centre are to be found.  From here you can take a guided historic walking tour of Olde Youghal.  For any newcomer to Youghal, this is recommended, as it gives a flavour of where this ancient town has come from and a warm feeling living in communion with the past.
