Entry to St. Mary’s has been, and will continue to be free of charge. That being said, a multi-lingual audio guide as well as a truly marvelous guided tour will carry a nominal fee. For the next week, they will be delighted, however, for visitors to sample the audio guide completely free of charge! Perfect time to come back and see what history you can learn!
This project will be a wonderful addition that will only add to the number of options visitors can experience in Youghal.
