Youghal is a beautiful town so far with an immense amount of history. Tomorrow we’ll have a chance to explore more, but a few things have already been learned in the last few hours.
- Youghal is pronounced ‘Yawl’. Or at least according to some flier we saw today. I don’t think it’s as easy a pronunciation as the y’all that Americans may be familiar with, but similar.
- There is more than one bus stop in Youghal, and only one hostel. The hostel is very close to a bus stop, but on the opposite side of a very long town from the first bus stop. If you get off at the first stop, near ‘town centre’, you will enjoy a log walk.
- Beamish is not a bad stout. In fact it was interesting enough to try again, even though my brain is wired for Guinness. It was also €0.60 cheaper than other stouts at the time of our visit, so that may have played a part.
There you have it. Another post is forthcoming detailing other things I’ve learned today, but these have just appeared in Youghal.
