I'm staying at this lovely hotel for two nights on my way back to Rosslare. It is very clean and serves an excellent range of food. You receive two large bottles of complimentary water in your room. I would certainly recommend this hotel/restaurant. The staff themselves are very friendly. The hotel also has its own car park. Youghal is a... More

This was recommended to me by a friend & only for that I would have missed out on it as it doesn't look much from the outside & not the type of place I would normally go, however, following my visit I will return. We were acknowledged on entering & shown a table quickly followed up by menus and water,... More

From the minute you set foot in the bar or restaurant there s an air of welcome. The service is as friendly and effecient. Food is magnificant great menu choice. Centrally located would not hesitate to recommend as you check out this lovely historic medieval town on day or weekend trip.

The Old Imperial doesn't impress from the outside but it's a gem if you're looking for a more authentic experience. Our room had a few rough edges but it was tastefully decorated, quiet and clean. The real revelation is the restaurant, it doesn't look much but the food is really special.I had a goats cheese starter and braised beef with... More

The excellent service we encountered started pre-arrival when we had had to amend our booking to accommodate my 2 grandchildren. Nothing was too much trouble. All the staff were very friendly and made us welcome during our 3 night stay. The hotel was very clean and our room was lovely. The location was excellent too, right in the middle of... More
