Activity Trip Youghal

Whiskey, Pottery and Haute Cuisine

Although Cork is just 30 minutes away there is lots to see before you get that far!

The scenic coastal road begins by Youghal's 7 miles of beach and takes you around the bay, through the village of Shanagarry (birthplace of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania State). Here you'll find the gallery of Stephen Pearce Pottery and the Ballymaloe Cookery School , both are worth visit.

Continuing on you'll come to Ballycotton, a lovely fishing harbour and small village.

Next stop is Midleton, the bustling market town between Cork and Youghal, famous for the Jameson Heritage Centre , home of some of Irelands most famous whiskey's. The whole family will enjoy a guided tour through the well preserved old distillery, although the tasting session is for the adults only! Its a 20 minute journey back to Aherne's.
