St. Mary's Collegiate Church

Welcome to 'Voices of St. Mary's Collegiate Church'. We hope you will enjoy exploring our church and discover more about its story in our interactive exhibition when you come to visit! Since its foundation in 1220, St. Mary's Collegiate Church has been at the heart of the town of Youghal. For over 800 years, the stone walls and wooden roof have provided sanctuary and solace through times of war and famine, as well as a calm presence in times of prosperity and peace. There is so much to discover her and as you look around you will see where parts of the church have been altered over the centuries. Despite these changes, the craftsmen who constructed the building in the 13th century would recognise it today. Christian worship continues to this day and Church of Ireland services are regularly held here. The church came into the care of Cork County Council in 2005 and now hosts a wide range of community events and performances, as well as welcoming visitors from all over the world!

Really loved our tour of the St Mary Collegiate Church -- our tour guide, Wayne, was very friendly, welcoming and filled with interesting information about the Church and the surrounding areas. Would highly recommend this to anyone interested in Irish history, wanting to spend time in a unique and impressive historical building, and/or wanting to learn some interesting facts about an Irish town that played a big role in history!

Regal Cinema

One of Ireland’s oldest cinemas, the Regal Cinema in Youghal reopened its doors in summer 2018 following a year-long renovation. The refurbished cinema has 2 screens showing the latest Hollywood movies and old classics on state-of-the-art 4K digital technology. The stunning cinema also has a luxury mezzanine level in screen one, a multi-purpose space for events and, for a truly unique experience, cinema goers and walk-in guests alike can enjoy a glass of wine in the new Regal Wine Bar & Café. Built in 1936, many of the cinemas original architectural features have been meticulously restored and some eye-catching, art deco style touches added throughout making this a wonderfully nostalgic cinema experience.

I just absolutely LOVE everything about this cinema! The decor, the staff, the older movies they play its all amazing.. I am always recommending this cinema to people. I travel 25 mins to get here and it is so worth it! My sisters and I went to all the Harry Potter movies when they showed them in Sept and Oct. We looked forward to them every Monday and have to say we were disappointed when they finished. I love sitting in the balcony and bringing in a glass of wine or a hot chocolate it is such a treat. The staff are all so friendly and helpful they couldn't be nicer. I could honestly keep going on about this wonderful place but don't take my word for it go see for yourself you will not be disappointed!

Moby Dick's Pub

Youghal is a very historic walled port town with numerous interesting sites to see. It is also a modern vibrant town with blue flag beaches. In the heart of it all is Moby Dick’s Pub with its unique water front setting. Little wonder then that John Huston and Gregory Peck based themselves in Moby Dick’s Pub for the duration of the film.

Shirley our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and a wonderful guide. She has a deep love for and understanding of history which only adds to the tour quality. The Tower is very well laid out with each floor depicting an era of its life. The top floor with the family history and video from John McGrath who lived in the Tower is fascinating. Well worth your time and money to visit this amazing place. Would highly recommend to anyone is this area.
