St. Mary’s Collegiate Church & Gardens


St. Marys Collegiate Church & Gardens occupy an area of almost 5 acres and are protected as a national monument. The gardens can be clearly identified on the earliest maps of Youghal. The Pacata Hibernia Map of Youghal (c. 1590) shows the lower garden as a series of geometric beds surrounded by paths.
