News Update re Covid-19
As we are all aware, government measures are currently in place to curb the spread of Covid-19 which means that hotels will not be allowed to reopen until the 20th of July. Here, at the Quality Hotel Youghal, we have been seriously considering the options for the health and safety of our guests post July 20th. We have now taken a tough decision and decided not to open our Hotel, Self-Catering Apartments, Restaurant or Bar for the 2020 Summer Season. Club V Leisure Centre will re-open for members as soon as Government guidelines permit.
Our decision was not taken lightly and was reached through careful deliberation and feedback from customers. We looked at the demographics of our guests, which are primarily Irish families and we had to take their safety first. We realised that it would be impossible to guarantee adherence from children to the necessary measures and social distancing requirements that would prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Nevertheless, our Holiday Homes ARE available to rent from the 20th July. With just our Holiday Homes on offer, we feel that parents will have a much more relaxing holiday break. They will have the wide-open spaces and fresh sea air of Redbarn Beach to enjoy and great family time to look forward to – without having to continually monitor their children’s smallest action. It will be good old-fashioned family fun, like building sandcastles, going for walks on the beach, scampering through Glenbower Woods or even visiting Fota Wildlife Park (which is now open for registered bookings ) or other attractions that may be open, such as Leahy’s Open Farm. There are also a number of take-away options available locally to ensure that everyone gets a holiday!

Our Holiday Homes will be deep cleaned and sanitised before arrival and best practice will be observed in relation to all contact with members of the team. Our primary focus is the health and well-being of your family and our staff. Your safety is paramount to us and we will take every action possible to ensure your safety. We ask you to look out for each other and stay safe.
Special Notice – Our Holiday Homes are AVAILABLE NOW for employees of businesses and industries who need to stay in the area.
For any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. 024 93050. During these temporary measures, our emails and phone lines will be monitored from Monday – Friday, 10.00am – 2.00pm.
Thank you for your ongoing support and patience during these extraordinary times. We wish you good health and well-being and look forward to welcoming you to Redbarn in the future when this has passed.
Finally, to the workers on the frontline, we cannot thank you enough for your dedication.
From Allen McEnery, General Manager, and all the team at the Quality Hotel Youghal.
