Visit Youghal Co. Cork.

Our third Irish Heritage Town to focus on is the most easterly town in Co. Cork.

Youghal is a seaside town, less than 2 hours drive from Lisheen Castle with great historic interest, blending a modern town centre with obvious medieval influence. It also has the added attraction of beautiful beaches and waterside amenities.

There is much to explore in Youghal and a good place to begin is at the Youghal Tourist Office & Heritage Centre, where you can take a guided walking tour of Youghal town and learn about it’s unique heritage.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Youghal Irish Heritage Town | Lisheen Castle[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Youghal Irish Heritage Town | Lisheen Castle[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Youghal Irish Heritage Town | Lisheen Castle[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_empty_space][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]Youghal Irish Heritage Town | Lisheen CastleThis summer the combined enthusiasm of local organisers/ athletes and Cork County Council have come together to bring the inaugural full-distance IRONMAN Ireland competition to Youghal.
