5 star ratingHistorical tour, Youghal A wonderful morning spent in St. Mary's Collegiate Church this morning with our tour guide Wayne. This is a hidden gem in Youghal, and is well worth a visit. The wonderful architecture and history of the building along with and interactive experience is suitable for all the family. Easy to access and navigate, a lovely way to spend a few hours in the town of Youghal, our Ladies group thoroughly enjoyed it.


5 star ratingWonderful Experience We went in to the Church this morning for a guided tour as a Ladies Group and we had such a lovely experience. The Church is beautiful with so much history. Wayne, our guide was absolutely fantastic, full of knowledge, friendly and so patient with the group. There was no rushing around and we got to soak up the wonderful atmosphere. We will definitely be back and will be recommending the guided tour to all! Thanks so much 🙂


5 star ratingMagnificent experience The Audio tour was is amazing full of history and delivered brilliantly with humor and emotion. The Audio is a great addition easy to follow and very insightful.


5 star ratingSo much to discover! When I went in, I wasn't really in the mood for the whole touristy thing, but I got talking to the receptionist (Angelica?) and since I didn't want to do the audio tour, she recommended the "treasure hunt" map. It was perfect for me, because it made me look at different features of the church that I might have overlooked, if I had just gone on my own exploration. I will have to come back and do the audio guided tour! Thanks to Angelica for taking the time to chat!


5 star ratingBeautiful church Packed full of history, allow yourself time to explore the nooks and crannies of this amazing historical building


5 star ratingA must-see in East Cork Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed our audio tour, we would like to see you again and maybe you could enjoy our guided tour which will be back after the 20th September.


4 star ratingEnjoyable gardens and historical church A very well kept and interesting church with a load of history and helps tell the story of Youghal so definitely a must see.


5 star ratingWould take this tour over and over again There is nothing I can write that will prove what a gem this is and absolutely fantastic experience if I do nothing else this has made my holiday and would recommend the audio tour for €8:50


5 star ratingA quiet beauty and serene stillness pervades this beauty. Outstanding visit - just a pity we missed the official guide but the secretary (?) did her best to inform us and answered most of my (rather nerdy detailed) questions adequately. She was in fact most gracious and helpful.
Hope to return soon - but will phone ahead to ensure guide is on hand.


5 star ratingBrilliant Extremely accessible and understandable audio tour that delivers a historic account in a modern way. Staff very helpful and kind. Surrounding gardens are tranquil and well worth the walk around on a nice day. The tour flows well and ties all the different eras and areas of the church together. The brochure you're provided with let's you create your own experience and includes key features from outside the church as well as inside. Lived in the town for years and learned so much. Would highly recommend.
