“Great Hosts”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Both Margo and Pat treated us like family. We enjoyed out intial convesation with Pat, as Margo was not yet home from babysitting for her grandchildren. When I asked Pat to describe "hurling", he asked us to wait a minute, and soon returned with his "personal" hurling stick which he had used many years ago, before the time when the player wore helmets. We loved hearing those stories. When Margo returned, we continued our conversation as if we had been family who had not seen each other for a long time until we needed to get out to dinner before they stopped serving. One of their dinner recommendations was the Imperial Hotel Bar/Pub, which was excellent and moderately priced. We were the only guests for the night we stayed and our room was very nice and the traditional Irish breakfast was perfect. We would love to stay with Margo and Pat again if we ever returned to this area in Ireland

Room Tip: Our room was great, so no other suggestions.

Margot and Pat were great hosts. They answered all our questions and provided us great travel tips. We had very nice rooms at a good location in Youghal. I would highly recommend it.

We planned on staying one night to start the 8 day driving trip of Ireland and when we got there asked if we could spend a second night. Margot was very accomodating and we were able to stay. We had a nice room and Margot & Pat were very knowledgeable about Youghal and how much history was there. Free WI-Fi is always nice & the breakfast to order was much appreciated. We went to Mass at the oldest continuous church in Ireland, St. Mary's Church of Ireland and after went to a Midievel Faire on the church grounds. We toured the Church Cemetary & walked part of the remaining city wall.
Margot, hope your trip with your new GPS navigator worked out for you.

Unfortunately we stayed only for one night, but this is really a wonderful B&B! We slept very well, we had a tasty breakfast and there was free WI-FI connection! Could we ask for more??

We had a good nights sleep in comfortable beds and got a breakfast that kept us going until late afternoon . The owner Margot were very charming and we felt like visiting a good friend.
A good choise if you plan to stay in Youghal.

Margot and Pat, the elderly couple that run this B&B, are so friendly that they make you feel at home...we even sang Happy Birthday to Pat...and I would do it again!

We chanced upon St. Martin's on our third day in Ireland and are glad we did. The owner, Margot Barry, and husband Pat were the friendliest, most helpful folks we met on our two week trip. They are extremely knowledgeable about Youghal and area and willing to fill us in on local history, places to see etc. The Bed was good, the Breakfast great, the house and grounds were neat as a pin and we were encouraged to make ourselves at home. If we were to return to the Emerald Isle we would make this our first stop.
