The picturesque town of Youghal occupies a commanding position at the estuary of the river Blackwater in County Cork, Ireland. The town grew up along a strip of flat land beside the river where there was good access to the water at a defensible site. The earliest settlements in the Youghal area were probably small religious foundations. Just west of the present town is the oratory at Kilcoran which may have been associated with the important monastery at Ardmore, 11km (7 miles) east of Youghal.
