Have stayed in the Old Imperial in Youghal four or five times all together it’s always my go to place to stay, rooms are beautiful, and clean, service and staff are polite and have great customer skills. Food is excellent. Booking here is never any problem and are prompt in getting back to you with any questions you have. I can’t speak highly enough of this Hotel and will be staying many more times in the future!!

Rooms were comfy, shower was very good, food and drink was great and staff were very friendly! Very cosy and I will stay here again next time in Youghal. Only thing they could do is make the shower panel higher as the shower is so powerful (this is a good thing!) it makes the whole bathroom wet!

Our B and B room was spacious, clean, bright, beautifully decorated. Love the amenities including a tea service in our room. Prior to staying in the Old Imperial Hotel, we've frequented their restaurant/pub when visiting relatives. So it was fun, this time, to stay in the hotel as well as eat in the restaurant. The restaurant boasts a perfect Irish pub. The restaurant menu is full with a variety of specials. Our room overlooked Youghal's Main Street. The restaurant was cheerfully decorated for the Christmas season.

I was with my family of 16 for our annual Christmas eve meal get together at the imperial and was left very disappointed. We were put upstairs in a room with another large family which was a very tight squeeze with no Christmas atmosphere then at only 4pm most of the food on the menu was already gone. what was left was very poor. When we finished eating we asked for a table down stairs to have a drink but were told the bar was closing in 10 min.if we were told this when we booked we could have went earlier. Thankfully the brilliant staff especially lauren made a bad choice on our behalf a better night.
