Youghal Clock Gate Tower – Guided Tour


A visit to Youghal Clock Gate Tower is by means of a guided tour. Give yourself an hour for the visit in total, but the tour usually takes about 50 minutes. There are 4 floors to visit, and each of the floors is set in a different era..each has it’s own story but of course all are connected through time. This tour is different to others though you will have been on, Guaranteed! Don’t expect a whole load of graphic panels in small print to read! Instead, the sounds and smells of the era will paint the picture! The use of technology too is really clever and innovative with ipads and screens used, but only to bring this moving story to life!
Floor 4 has proven to be a real highlight for visitors to date...Youghal native, John McGrath tells his story on screen. It’s amazing to watch the reactions of visitors as they try to hide the wiping away of a tear from their eye as John recalls his life in the Tower. John’s story is captured in a really evocative video lasting just over 5 minutes.
Then for the icing on the cake! Access to the rooftop! Only 7 people at a time, and it’s a tight squeeze, but really well worth the view on a fine day!
