This establishment appears to be very family friendly. Overall a lovely experience, with a... More

We stayed for four fabulous days. The staff is outstanding. Paul and Jesse were exceptional. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The pub and restaurant were also great! It has a great patio to sit out in the evenings. The city is great too!

Great choice of food and very tasty. Well worth a visit if you visit beautiful Youghal. Try their home made burger,very well prepared. The staff were very polite and helpful. The restaurant itself is very cosy. Nice place to relax and enjoy some good food.

I had a excellent red lentil curry. It had rice, Chutney's and Nana bread. It was truly very good. Others had a burger with melted cheeese and bacon and Coke- Barb-q Chicken wings. Could not fault any aspects of the meal. The two glass's of wine was nice so was dessert and it was good very value for under 65Euros.... More

Had an early evening dinner in the bistro with family. Was unassuming from outside but pleasant and comfortable in side. All four of us had a super meal served by pleasant knowledgeable and attentive but not overbearing staff. All the meals were well cooked and were just enough. Would return without a doubt, our eldest son still is raving about... More

The food is really good here plus there's a great selection. Service is excellent also. Kids eat free when adults order a main course which makes it very affordable. Undoubtedly the best food in Youghal. Highly recommended.

Excellent value. Great food with 2 or 3 course options and no charge for the kids food. Very Friendly staff who took the time to have a chat with all the patrons. Kids loved the food especially the apple crumble.

Paul and Dan were everywhere, ensuring the great... More
