Qype: Rivergate Cafe in Youghal

YoughalEating & DrinkingRestaurants

We had lunch in an attractive harbour town called Youghal. 2 euros bought us unrestricted on-street parking, so we had plenty of time to explore, and during our explorations, we discovered that we could have parked in any off-street car park for 3 hours for nothing.

We chose the Rivergate Café and Restaurant, where I had a lasagne, and very good lasagne it was, too. I was producing oregano-flavoured burps for hours afterwards.

The café is attached to the Rivergate shopping mall, but you can approach it from the outside, where there’s a car park. So, it draws customers for both shoppers and the ‘passing trade’. It therefore gets rather busy, especially around lunchtime, but the standards, or the cheerful service don’t seem to suffer.

Check out my review of Rivergate Cafe – I am nomadkeith – on Qype


  1. Hi Keith,
    It’s unreal that you have to pay for parking just about everywhere, but at least this time it wasn’t as expensive, and you didn’t have to rush.
    The lunch sounds very nice.
