Stayed for 2 nights. Fantastic food - tasting menu was well thought out, well portioned and with a great selection of wine. Combined with great hospitality made for memorable mid week break. Will definitely be back again.

A delightful, family run, small town hotel with homely firesides, a relaxing warm welcome and fabulous food, including the amazing 8 course tasting menu and large clean bedrooms. A most relaxing and enjoyable 3 nights in Aherne's. Highly recommend.

This is really a five star property and is listed in the Irish Blue Book. We had a lovely room and opted to include dinner with our stay. Dinner was outstanding. Every bite was delicious and the owner was on the premises to be sure that everything was to our liking. Breakfast the next morning was equally good. This hotel... More

We visited Youghal for a weeks holiday, eating at Ahernes mid week. The seafood was absolutely amazing. It's a long time since I was spoilt for choice on a menu. I would definitely recommend! Ann the hostess was absolutely lovely, well mannered and tentative with an incredible knowledge of the menu. Well worth a visit

We spent one night in this lovely small hotel. It has spacious clean rooms and very friendly staff. Lovely freshly cooked food in the bar/restaurant and the breakfast was wonderful - fresh juices, fruit, yogurt etc. Lovely sitting rooms with open fire.

Free parking and nice accomodations at this hotel, in somewhat remote seaport fishing village. Actual location in on main street of Youghal but a bit away from port itself. Facility is bit chopped up with many rooms and doors between the restaurant, pub, conference areas, upstairs sleeping. Big rooms with clean bathrooms. Plenty of light from windows but no view...
