Sir Walter Raleigh was one of the most dynamic and colourful characters of the Elizabethan period, but the new owners of his namesake hotel in the lovely heritage town of Youghal could probably give him a run for his money for both character and dynamism.
Grace and Nick Ryan were persuaded by a friend of theirs – a Youghal native – to take a trip down from their home in Meath to have a look at the hotel, which was for sale. Never having been to this Victorian seaside town before, they promptly bought the Walter Raleigh Hotel in late November of last year, closed the premises on New Year’s Eve and began renovation work on January 2nd 2013. They then reopened just three weeks later, having entirely replaced the hotel’s kitchens, and renovated the lobby, dining room and bar to a standard this pretty seaside hotel hasn’t seen since her glory days. The final phase of the refurbishment program was completed in May 2014 with the completion of the final 20 bedrooms and suites.
