Default Moving to Youghal

Could be buying a gaff in Youghal. Priced out of the city. Is it on the up again? Is it a dead end town? Few nice pubs and cafes? Anyone any insight who's living there now? Is a commute to the city do-able?

I like the idea of the big beach, fresh air, nice scenery and the opening of the greenway there. But a bit worried that it's a still dead-end place that will never recover...

IMO Youghal is on the up. They've one of the top cinemas in the country now, an excellent local radio station in CRY Youghal, and there are nice spots for food as as Clancys and Aherns. Good big Tesco up the Waterford end of the town with lots of parking, and there's a SuperValu right in the centre of town.

The Walter Raleigh is thriving and was recently sold by that Meath fella who was running it, it's the place to be if you have an event or just want a good Sunday lunch.

The place is lovely, but as for the commute question, forget about it. That road between Cork and Youghal is an absolute disaster. Anyone travelling to Cork from Middleton, Killeagh, Castlemartyr, Youghal, Dungarvan, or Waterford uses it, and it's congested 100% of the time. I use it a lot and its a fucking pain.

The commute is a problem alright. I could swing one day from home but that's about it. Probably not much to do but hera I'm aman of simple pleasures.

Looking myself as I'm planning to return home in 2020 finally.

West Cork seems to have some great homes for reasonable prices. East Cork seems pricier for some God knows reason. May be easier to get to the city from West aswell.

I bought a house in youghal in 2014 and have never looked back. Exceptional value for example our house was originally 380,000 when they were built and we paid 167,000. Bought at the right time and one of the lucky ones. I commute to little island every day and it takes 30 minutes in the morning and 35-40 minutes going home in the evening. It could take that long to get from the city to carrigaline with the traffic in the evenings.

Youghal is a great place but the greenway is a stupid idea.

Extend the train and let people leave their cars at home.

Complete agree that the greenway is a stupid idea as the train tracks are still in place. Also a green way is suppose to be scenic whereas the proposed route between midleton and youghal is just ditches and fields either side.
