I have nothing but praise for the exceptional service offered by the management and staff of the Old Imperial Hotel in Youghal.

We were very kindly accommodated in Room 8 (The Bianconi Suite) - which is well appointed, absolutely beautiful, and... More

The hotel is ideally situated on North Main Street in Youghal with all local amenities in easy walking distance. There is convenient, free car parking to the rear of the hotel which is not an extra charge. Importantly I found all staff to be friendly and efficient and their repartee with other guests obvious.
