Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Youghal, Ireland - Updated 2021

airbnb Youghal, Ireland

Youghal, the gem of Ireland’s Ancient East, is one of the best examples of a Norman walled port in Ireland today, combined with a modern seaside holiday resort. It is the place where Walter Raleigh first introduced potatoes into Ireland, the location where Cromwell left the country from, and Ireland’s medieval trade hub. Youghal is a unique place teeming with historic character, perfectly complemented by sandy beaches and waterside amenities. Its Blue Flag beaches and historic attractions make for an ideal family holiday destination.

The rich history of the seaside resort may not be instantly apparent, especially if you coast past on the N25, you’d think it’s simply a humdrum Irish market town. But take a little time to sniff out some of its once-walled past and we are sure you’d love the place. Relish the magnificent views of the wide Blackwater estuary and don’t forget to snap some Instagram-worthy photos to share with your family and friends! Before you embark on your exciting trip, check out the top 9 Airbnb vacation rentals in Youghal, Ireland first!
