We celebrated two family birthdays here, with 10 of us staying overnight for two nights. Every aspect of the stay was fantastic - the food was out of this world (not only the taster dinner, but also the breakfast), the rooms were beautifully furnished and lit, we had access to a beautiful living room with open fire, the service was...

Maybe it was what we chose but we were both a bit disappointed with our meals. My fish pie was predominantly potato with less fish than I was expecting and my husband had a similar experience with his dish which was very potatoey too. That said it is a very nice place and the staff were attentive and helpful. Maybe... More

Ok I'm living in youghal so I'm probably a bit biased but it really is worth the stroll it's such a beautiful walk. I love walking out a long the promenade and then heading out a long the boardwalk especially in the winter on a day like today

Aherne's tasting menu is €65 per person and unbelievable value at that! It's 9 courses with Oysters, Scallops, Hake, salad, Fillet Steak, cheeses, dessert, tea and coffee etc. There is complementary wine and port with at least 5 of the courses. It is a taste sensation and is more than worth a visit!

We booked a table for a girls night in the bar. The food was great, hot, tasted beautiful and couldnt be faulted. I must mention that the seating arrangements are basic. The tables are too small or maybe just too close together, not somewhere to go to catch up withsomeone or a date unless u want to share your conversation... More

We were taken here by friends in Youghal. The word on the street is that the seafood is among the best in County Cork. Unfortunately, my fiancée and I don't eat seafood. Instead, I had the chicken breast, and she had a stir fry. Both were great. We will definitely come back next time we're in Youghal.

Had a very pleasant lunch here recently. Seafood Chowder, Hake Scampi and a couple of nice chilled white wines. Service was efficient, friendly. Nice bar set up. Fire flickering in the corner. Will visit again.

This is a wonderful restaurant in Youghal in Co Cork. A group of us visited recently and we has a great night. Early bird menu available with an excellent choice. IT is well priced. A open roaring fire was to greet us. Staff very helpful and attentive. Steak done to perfection We will be vack
