We had the pleasure of dining in Aherne's last Friday night. We were welcomed in by Anne the hostess and waitress. We had decided on the tasting menu so had to book it in advance, we were not disappointed, my only regret, I was too full to eat the lovely chocolate pudding. My partner ate his and would.t share. We...

We stopped here for lunch en route from Killarney to Rosslare, I had been several years before with my late mum and wanted to taste the experience of the garlic prawns again. Excellent... I had the prawns and my husband had the open smoked salmon sandwich on soda bread, long live the memory of those delicious prawns in garlic butter...

We spent a great weekend in Youghal in August and I can highly recommend a stay at Aherne's - a comfortable hotel with great staff who made us feel very welcome from the outset. From the minute I booked by phone I knew we had made the right choice. We went for the Jameson's weekend package - and had two...

I was welcomed on arrival by the owner who was very relaxed and friendly. He showed me to my room which was clean and well appointed. The highlight of this hotel for me was looking forward to the seafood restaurant which had received favourable reviews. I was not disappointed !!!! Far from it. Again the service was very friendly and...

I visited Ahernes with my partner last month for dinner and an overnight stay and we were both blown away by the warm welcome we received and the outstanding food we enjoyed in the restaurant. If you are visiting Youghal, this is absolutely the place to stay. Aherne's is a friendly townhouse located within the heart of Youghal so you...

Can't rate This place highly enough. Friendly and top class. Predinner drink in bar and had to ask for the breads to be removed from adjoining table as it was a form of torture not to be able to grab them! Thoroughly enjoyed meal, but breakfast also added to how impressed I am by it. You must stay here if...

I'm not sure whether Aherne's is a Hotel, a Townhouse or a Restaurant/Bar with accommodation? What I do know,however, is that it is excellent and fully deserves it's four stars. We stayed in a Junior Suite which was furnished with hand picked period furniture and had a superb bathroom and a large comfortable bed. It even had a balcony overlooking...
