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. Seemed to be a family run... More

Dear Angela923, Thank you for taking the time to review you visit. We are glad you enjoyed your meal and service.

We spent one night at the Old Imperial and really enjoyed our brief time here. We were given a family room (#1), that included one double bed and three singles. And there was still room to move around. The bathroom was very spacious too! I met two of the women who worked at reception and they were so nice. Our... More

We made the plan to go to Youghal last Wednesday because of the RTE show At Your Service which featured the hotel last year. I brought my elderly Dad there for lunch.
