Stayed here overnight recently. Lovely welcoming check-in. Lovely room with fantastic view overlooking park and sea. Could sit in the comfortable chair and stare out all day. Even though the radiator was on fully, the room was cold. I think it needs heavy curtains in the winter. The same for the bathroom. I took towels off the radiator to let... More

Stopped in here recently for some food and a meeting. A lovely view but pretty poor food. The fish wasn't cooked right. Youghal seems to be forever under construction. Roadworks everywhere. I'd say it's s lovely place to be in the summer. I'll give it another go

Sometimes you accidentally stumble on something so wonderful, you wouldn’t change a thing. This is certainly true of the Walter Raleigh Hotel in Youghal, Co Cork. My husband and I were in Cork for a family wedding and from the moment we arrived and were greeted so warmly by the manageress and staff, we knew we were in good hands.... More

We stayed here as a family and we could not fault it from start to finish. We had a slight problem with booking but the manager dealt with it and explained it. Lovely well appointed family room with 1 double bed and two single beds with views of the sea. Room was very clean. Food in the bar was excellent... More

Had two nights here, very nice room overlooking the park and sea - very pleasant. Room well refurbished and very clean. Quiet despite being on front of hotel. Tea and coffee making facilities, but no biscuits - maybe a drive to address obesity! Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good and efficiently served, and nice dining room...

On Sunday we had lunch in this hotel while watching the Gaelic football match between Dublin and Donegal. We had excellent viewing -music was turned off for the match and we loved our meal - fish cakes followed by lamb -excellent stuffing . The pièce de resistance was however the lemon curd roulade which was described by a waitress as... More

The welcome from Grace Ryan the owner was lovely, her staff are lovely and helpful and friendly. The décor suits the building, light and classic. Our twin room on the 3rd floor was accessed by "the lift with attitude". It encourages you to take the stairs. It works, it's reliable but it's slow. It's not a criticism, just an observation...
