We are seafood lovers and were recommended Aherne's by a friend and we were not disappointed! We called in at lunch and had a selection of seafood. We will definitely be back whenever we are around this area again.

We liked this small comfortable hotel/pub-with-rooms where we had dinner in the pub which was very well presented and of a high quality. Our room which was a mini-suite was well furnished and comfortable. Breakfast was very enjoyable even though it took about 10 minutes before the staff realized we were there! All in all a good experience for a one night stop-over on our way west.

A wonderful use of a Blue Book voucher saw us spend a weekend in Ahernes in Youghal. We ate in the bar the first night and had the tasting menu in the restuarant the second night.

You come here for the food, plain and simple, and specifically the seafood. When the chef proprietor can identify the specific boat that each piece of fish was caught from, you know you're in a place where fish is really taken seriously. Over the course of the two nights we ate oysters, scallops, crab, brill, monkfish and black sole, all treated with the utmost respect and properly cooked. Too often fish is overcooked and smothered in sauces, David in Ahernes truly understands how to bring out the flavours of his fish and we will definitely be returning.

As an aside, a 9 course tasting menu with 7 different wines for €60pp is most likely the best value meal available in the country at the moment.

Myself and my girlfriend spent 2 nights at ahernes in youghal. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and together with the beautiful traditional decor created a lovely warm and homely atmosphere for the duration of our stay. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. We had dinner in the restaurant on our second night and I cannot compliment the food enough. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Aherne's to anyone looking for a relaxing break in Ireland.

We stayed for two nights on an anniversary trip.
The welcome, the friendliness, and the comfort, were only surpassed by the quality of the seafood, the best we can remember tasting anywhere.If it were in Dublin, I think it would have a Michelin star
Beautifully furnished with functional antiques, truly comfortable beds, comfortable residents lounge with a fire going all the time. Breakfast was also high quality, free-range scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, and their own beautiful home-made brown bread - yum!.
Well worth travelling from Dublin for - and the new motorway to Waterford shortens the trip. We'll be back

We have been going to Aherne's Restaurant on and off since we discovered it in 1978 and have never had a bad meal there. The sons of the founders have carried forward the torch of quality and graciousness lit by their parents. Always a delight to return. Consistently high quality is a more difficult badge to earn than all your Michelin stars, and they continuously work to earn it at Aherne's

Room Tip: Ignore ratings other than restaurant. We have not stayed there but cannot un tick the ratings above!
