The Family Fun Continues Inside

As the saying goes, life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass – it’s about learning to dance in the rain! While we can’t promise you won’t have a little rain on your Youghal holiday, we CAN tell you that we have a wealth of wonderful things to do indoors, so that you and your family can holiday on regardless!

So, for those rare wet days, here’s our pick of favourite under-cover activities and attractions:

1. Take a Guided Tour of St Mary’s Collegiate Church

Head for Youghal’s historic Raleigh Quarter and explore the wonder and majesty of this famous national monument that dates to 13th century Ireland. One of Ireland’s oldest churches, St Mary’s Medieval Church is a showcase for incredible architecture, with beautiful woodwork and ironwork, tomb sculpture and a Bishop’s Throne and Pulpit. Your family will love the ‘Voices of St Mary’s’ immersive experience, which brings to life the story of the Church as the fictitious Roe family shares their cherished family memories. Then take a walk through the historic graveyard to the ‘sally port,’ and explore the gorgeous St Mary’s College Gardens.

2. Visit Youghal Clock Gate Tower

Have a “Hear, See, Touch” experience at Youghal Clock Gate Tower! An incredible, immersive tour comprising audio visual displays, exhibits and important historical artefacts lets you travel through time to witness the life-stages of this iconic building. Costumed Guides will take you across four floors of history – from the 16th century to the current day – culminating in the spectacular roof-top viewing platform. You’ll definitely need your camera for this one!

3. Enjoy the Fun at Perks Entertainment Centre

Discover over 70,000 square feet of INDOOR entertainment and fun unlimited – guaranteed to keep everyone happy and busy till the showers pass!
