We stopped in Youghal today on our way to Waterford. The folks in our group wanted Ice Cream and after lunch we were referred to Fantastic Flavours. The owner was very gracious and his homemade ice cream hit the spot.

Highly recommended!!!

We were staying in Youghal for Easter weekend and while strolling down the main street came across fantastic flavours. The kids wanted ice cream so we attempted to enter but the door was locked, we were an hour too early. However Michael was inside doing his work and he opened the shop for us ! Amazing, he was so pleasant and really friendly to the kids. We bought our ice cream and my word, it was the nicest ice cream I have tasted. Top marks for the produce and 200 per cent for customer service. Definitely a must when you visit Youghal. We are going back before we leave tomorrow so my husband's can sample the amazing ice cream and friendliness of Michael.

You asks he gets no matter what flavour. Very accommodating, my daughter didn't realise shop was closed as she saw the two men inside as he saw her try the door he let her in and served her which was very good of him, that is what you call service.
Fantastic flavours is a much needed pleasure in the town of Youghal..
