Youghal lace (or Yougal lace) is a needle lace inspired by Point de France developed in Youghal, County Cork, Ireland.

Youghal lace was a top quality commercial product that ended with the First World War. Lace Making was taught in Youghal from 1845 by the Presentation Sisters. Among the finest pieces of lace made in Youghal was a train for Queen Mary worn on her visit to India in 1911 as its Empress. The skill of Lace Making is still retained in Youghal to this day. There is no written record of either the stitches or the general technique at the Convents themselves, but the puzzling obscurity is illuminated by four important survivals:

1. A sampler of 43 stitches, preserved at St Clare's Convent in Kenmare.

2. A court train made for Queen Mary and worn by her at the Delhi Durbar of 1911.

3. Two books of designs drawn in Chinese white on paper tinted beige, pink, azure, crimson or midnight blue.

4. The Needlecraft Practical Journal no.106, published by William Briggs under the Penelope trademark, c1909.
