Arriving in Cork is quick and easy. Cork is a small airport and arrival is unfussy and quick. New security measures will now mean that you have to  show your passport (or Photo ID) - they didn't bother with that until recently. Baggage return is quick, but if you only have hand luggage you'll be outside the airport within 2 minutes of leaving the aeroplane.

Youghal is just less than 40 minutes from the Airport. Compared to the rest of Europe, Ireland has fewer cars per head of population, and traffic is therefore light. The N25 is the main route across the south of Ireland, and runs from airport hill right into Youghal. You can hire a car easily at the airport, or if you prefer you can be met by a Youghal taxi.

Car hire - for most independence - or longer stays. Car hire is best to be arranged before you travel, and the best deals are usually found on the internet. Cork is a major - all season - tourist destination and therefore all of the major car hire firms are represented at Cork airport.

Currency - For British visitors - you'll need your Euros. Just like the rest of Europe, Ireland is in the Euro zone so you'll need to change some money. Its easy at the airport, but even easier to use the cash machines in Cork Airport, or Youghal high street - they all accept UK bank cash cards. Your credit cards will be accepted as widely as they are at home.

Language - English everywhere. Although you'll see Irish language signs, and might even find an Irish language TV or Radio station, English is the language of choice for almost everyone....But be prepared, some of the common words have subtly different meanings in Ireland!

Weather - Mild climate. Ireland is known for its wet climate, and its true that certain parts of the country are among the wettest in Europe. But Youghal sits in the Irish Riviera on the south coast and is warmed by the gulf stream. In winter we never have snow, and rarely see frost. Throughout the rest of the year the climate stays warm, sometimes wet, and sometimes hot. Basically the weather in Youghal, is just like it is in Cornwall.

Booking Direct - Saving Money. Youghal has an international reputation and you'll find that you can book at your local travel agents or with hundreds of on-line travel agents. BUT to get the best deals and real local knowledge you need to book directly with us on our secure booking system.
