Sea Adventures

What to do in ballycotton.

Ballycotton gets its name from the Gaelic Baile Choitín, (Town of the Small Boats). The village is in East Cork about 40km from Cork City and is set on a rocky ledge overlooking Ballycotton Bay with its many sandy beaches.

Bridging the gap between the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East, Ballycotton is a real hidden gem along the jagged coastline of East Cork. With breath-taking scenery, a wonderful Cliff walk and a number of restaurants and pubs, cosy accommodation, exciting sea angling trips, this historic fishing village has something for everybody.

Ballycotton Lighthouse is one of the original Great Lighthouses of Ireland which are open to the public and Ballycotton Sea Adventures provides exclusive tours to the Lighthouse from April to October each year. It could be organized in English and also Polish language.

If you have already visited the lighthouse, you can try other activities eg. fishing. There are two types of fishing: one is a short tour for unexperienced people, we called it evening fishing tours   and the second one is for experienced fishermen called Deep See Angling.  These activities you can book online.

We also can offer tours to the Ghost Ship or perhaps whale watching and maybe even private charters for groups.

If you want to offer someone any of Ballycotton Sea Adventures Activities, you can buy a voucher and give it as a gift to your friends or family.  Then the owner of the voucher has to call us and we will block the places paid with the voucher

Online booking is NOW available. Just hit the “ book now ” button.

Elpa_Cork Oct 2021

An Outstanding Day on Ballycotton Island Lighthouse Tour "An outstanding day out in exceptional weather for this time of year (October). The tour is well run with an excellent guide and boat captain. Safety is of primary concern so we were all issued with proper lifejackets before departure. The history and social living conditions of the lighthouse keepers on the island are very well explained. Ballycotton holds a treasured place in Ireland's marine history and our guide was able to point out the Smiths Reef where the SS. Sirius ran aground and was lost in 1847. This caused the lighthouse to be built on Ballycotton Island rather than Capel Island off Youghal which is further East. Overall an outstanding tour. Well done to our guide, Heather and our captain Paddy. Go Raibh Mile Maith Agaibh. Liam and family"

James S Aug 2021

One of the best things to do around Cork. Great family experience "Had a great tour on a fantastic sunny August day with amazing views from the island. Hazel was a brilliant tour guide and paid extra attention to my inquisitive 5 year old and equally curious 3 year old.

It’s a perfect way to spend an afternoon in Cork. The boat trip is nice and smooth - not too long! The island and lighthouse tour is really interesting."

Paula Galvin Aug 2021

Eddie the expert guide. "Eddie our expert guide was a delight on this tour. A wealth of knowledge combined with a fine sense of humour made this a wonderful tour, thoroughly enjoyed by ourselves and the other five occupants of our boat. Eddie had been a lighthouse keeper, not only in Ballycotton but in lighthouses the length and breadth of the country so he was able to tell us some great stories about his time. It is such a shame to see this lighthouse and the two cottages being left to become ruins but we did manage to climb the two staircases of the lighthouse and imagine what it would have been like in its glory days, all gleaming brass and ship shape. Thank you Eddie for sharing your passion of lighthouses with us!"

11 Of The Best Things To Do In Youghal (And Nearby)

There are plenty of things to do in Youghal, regardless of when you visit.

This magical seaside town is also the most easterly of the many towns in Cork and, for some strange reason, it often gets missed by those visiting the Rebel County.

While it’s name and location is elusive to many, this hidden gem in the Ancient East has been a popular tourist spot since the mid 19th century.

In the guide below, you’ll discover heaps of things to do in Youghal, from incredible walks and historic landmarks and to plenty to see and do nearby.

The first section of our guide tackles  our  favourite things to do in Youghal, from coffee from Priory to rambles along Youghal Beach.

A visit to the Clock Gate Tower is arguably one of the most popular things to do in Youghal and you’ll find it in the centre of the town.

Standing at 24 metres in hight, this historic landmark boasts a rich history that dates back over 700 years, and you can learn all about it on the tour.

The tour offers a unique sensory experience in the Merchants Quarters where you can smell spices and see smooth silks. You can also see the gaol cell and catch panoramic views from the top of the tower.

3. Gulp down a lungful of sea air with a walk on Youghal Beach

Youghal beach

Youghal is home to some of the best beaches in Cork . The great thing about Youghal is that there are actually 4 beaches. Claycastle and Redbarn beach actually join together creating a 3 mile stretch.

This is great spot for a ramble and there are lots of spots for a picnic or to kick back with a coffee. Public car park and toilet facilities are conveniently onsite too.

Front Strand Beach and Claycastle Blue Flag beach are also both within walking distance of the town centre. 

4. Step back in time at The Raleigh Quarter

Youghal raleigh quarter

Situated in Youghal’s historic centre is Youghal’s Raleigh Quarter . This hidden gem was restored over many years and gives visitors a powerful insight into the town’s turbulent past.

You can take a tour of St Mary’s Collegiate Church, either self-guided with audio or with a tour guide/storyteller. You can also visit the interactive interpretive centre, where you can see the timeline from 1,220 to present day.

If you head to the 13th century town walls, you can get some panoramic views of the town and there is an ancient graveyard trail to explore. Or you can just relax in the medieval gardens.

5. Take a cruise along the beautiful Blackwater River

There is no better way to enjoy the Blackwater river than by climbing aboard a boat and sailing down it. “ Maeve Og ” is a 28ft half-decker fishing boat that also operates as a tour boat.

You can start the voyage from Youghal jetty which is opposite the Youghal Visitor Centre and then head north up the river, past Rhicrew and then towards the old bridge.

You will also get a glimpse of the castle runs of Templemichael before reaching an unspoiled area full of natural beauty.

If you’re looking for unique things to do in Youghal, you can’t go wrong with a river cruise. The whole tour lasts around 90 minutes though the boat can be chartered for longer trips.

Ok so you can go to the cinema just about anywhere but what about Irelands oldest cinema? Built sometime in 1936, this stunning cinema reopened back in the summer of 2018 after a year-long renovation.

There are 2 screens which show the latest Hollywood blockbusters and the old classics as well. Movies are projected on high definition 4k digital technology.

The cinema comes with a luxurious mezzanine level in screen 1, occasionally used as a private space for events. Film fanatics can also enjoy a glass of wine upstairs in the new Regal Wine Bar & Cafe.

4. Head for a swim at Aura

The leisure centre comes with state of the art facilities and an extensive selection of exercise equipment if you fancy a workout. The indoor aerobics studio offers a diverse range of classes like pilates, indoor cycling and boxercise.

The 25 metre swimming pool is the real draw here. If yo’re not a member, don’t stress as you can pay as you go.

The Blackwater River Valley

  • September 22, 2022

The Blackwater River Valley has long been a destination for discerning tourists eager to seek out something new or different. In the early 20th century, the river was known as the ‘Irish Rhine’, as it was a beautiful river to traverse by steamboat from Cappoquin to Youghal, often such boats would have had a band playing to entertain the passengers. Triangulating the river are the towns of Lismore, Dungarvan and Youghal, all popular destinations on their own. Furthermore, the number of unique historic houses in such a small geographic area is bewildering. These include Lismore Castle, Salterbridge House, Cappoquin House, Tourin House, Dromana House, Strancally Castle, and Ballinatray House, all with their own enthralling histories.

So why is The Blackwater River Valley still described as a hidden hideaway?
