PDF Print E-mail

Keeping the kids happy
If the kids are happy it makes everyone's holiday more enjoyable. When the sun is shining it is easy, the beach, the sea and the outdoor activities are all around. But even when the weather breaks there's still plenty to do in and around Youghal.

Youghal is famed for its blue flag beaches awarded for their cleanliness and water quality. They offer fine sand and sunbathing and make a huge open air playground for all ages. Huge open strands and secluded coves, with plenty of space for all beach games and plenty of rock pools to explore. Good swimming and bodysurfing conditions prevail frequently. Lifeguards are on duty on the main strand during peak season.


Perks Family Entertainment Centre
On the edge of Youghal, near to the main beach is Perks Family Entertainment Centre, with more than 40,000 square feet of indoor fun, catering for all ages in all types of weather. This is a huge indoor fun palace including bowling, kids play area, fairground rides, arcade machines, pool tables, Megazone laser shots and gaming machines (adults only). MacPerkies Fast Food Restaurant and Alice's Ice Cream parlour provide a mouth-watering selection to compliment your visit including burgers, ribs, chicken and fish and seating for 80 persons. You can spend the whole day at Perks and still not get around everything.

The state of the art bowling lanes have no complicated rules or fussy formalities. A computerised bowling system keeps the score for you. All you have to do is enter your name. It's easy for kids with bumper lanes and light balls. Free shoe hire.

Megazone Lazer Shots
Megazone Lazer Shots is a high-tech live action lazer game and played in a themed arena with special effects, fog, lazer beams, pulse-pumping music and other players to create an exciting, entertaining adventure. Players score points by deactivating opponents and their Base Stations with their lazer while defending themselves and their team's Base Station from opponents. Before each game, players are led to the Briefing Room where a Games Marshal gives a customised explanation of the rules, the game, equipment functions and safety guidelines. Once briefed, players head for the Vesting Room where they strap on their lazer vests and prepare for action. Heart pumping, senses alert, the door swings open and the action begins!!

Blackbeard's play zone
Blackbeard's play zone offers three decks of fun, excitement and hands on play for young children. Designed on a pirate theme it has plenty for the kids to enjoy with Ball Pools, Slides, Rope Climbing and lots, lots more. All areas are padded for protection. There is a separate area cordoned off for toddlers and parental supervision is welcomed. Height Restrictions Apply: To enter the main play area you must be taller than 3ft 3" and smaller than 4ft 10". The separate toddler area is available for children below 3ft 3". Socks Must Be Worn.

Video & Games Arcade
Video & Games Arcade has state of the art video games including the new EZ2 Dancer, Route 66 and Maze of the Kings. Also available is a selection of Redemption Games.
Tickets won on these games can be exchanged for prizes at the prize shop. Why not try our Pirates Cove Shooting Gallery or challenge your friend with a game of Air Hockey?

Snooker & Pool
Relax and enjoy the quiet atmosphere in the Snooker & Pool Hall with 2 full size Snooker Tables and 4 full size Pool Tables.

Kiddie Area
To the rear of the Play Centre there are a variety of entertainment's for younger children including the Disney Land Ride, Tea Cup Ride, Ghost Train, Aqua Blasta and FREE Crazy Mirror Show.

The cinema in Youghal may be small, but it shows all of the latest films on its multi screens, with daily matinee's and early evening shows for the kids.

Pitch and Putt
Just behind the main strand beach is a wonderful Pitch and Putt course that would be a challenge to all budding golfers. Set on the back of a huge sand dune (Claycastle) the course swoops up and down, over brooks and ponds. Great fun.

Millennium Park
The children's playground at Millennium Park in Youghal (next to Lidl and Tesco) is great energetic fun for preteens with swings, slides and multiple climbing frames and other installations. Great for burning off some energy whilst the shopping is being done.

Fota Wildlife Park
Heading west out of Youghal for 20 minutes and you'll come to Fota Wildlife Park, a treat for the whole family, and entertainment for a full day. Fota is a wildlife park unlike others, as you can walk around with the animals - many of which roam freely about the beautiful grounds. Don't miss it! Families may also be interested in visiting the adjacent Fota House and Gardens, now open to the public.

Leahy's Open Farm
North West out of Youghal for 20 minutes and you'll find Leahy's Open Farm a great trip for families with smaller children. Get up close and personal with a range of farm animals and birds, there are special kiddie play areas, and rides and a restaurant.
