Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this wonderful family run boutique townhouse. We stayed here over New Year with some good friends who have been here several times. The atmosphere was great and we had a brilliant time, and laugh (with the locals, hosts and other guests). The food is top class and this is a good...

Fiancee and I very much enjoyed this place during our visit to Youghal. We were taken here by friends who live in Youghal. Good drinks, good food, and good atmosphere. Definitely a place worth returning to.

Called on the spur of the moment, early evening. Ordered the prawns off the "special" menu on the blackboard. They were ok. Bit rubbery and tasteless. The potatoes were good, and so was the Guinness! With hindsight, seafood on a Monday might not have been the best choice. But still, for an eatery known for its seafood, it could have...

A few friends and I met for dinner in Aherne 's recently and found the whole experience somewhat underwhelming. The food was good but not exceptional, the surroundings in what looked like a little side bar did nothing to enhance our dining experience.

Stayed in Aherne's in January 2017. Made to feel at home. Service with a smile. Room comfortable. Evening meal very tasty.Lovely home made brown bread. for breakfast. Home cooked shortbread served with cup of tea. Menu had a good choice. This restaurant is well known for its fish dishes. Service was prompt in the restaurant.

We were delighted with our stay. Got a break from the kids in a really relaxing environment that is very olde world with very good attention to detail. We had the tasting menu which was outstanding and the breakfast was to the highest standard. The staff were so friendly too! I would highly recommend!

We had an overnight stay in the townhouse in very comfortable accommodation, as it was January dinner was served in the bar, we took the recommendation of the staff as to our choice from the menu. Starters of garlic prawns and smoked salmon, then a seafood platter for 2. The food was excellent and beautifully presented.
