booked a meal for myself and my fiance , it was our first time there having moved to the area over a year ago. firstly didnt know where we were going when we arrived, ended up behind the bar trying to get to bar, we were asked out of the way by a member of staff as we asked for directions... Then when we went into a small pokey bar room we were seated at 2 seater table alongside an occupied 2 seater table where there were people eating right next to us with a big awkward screen between us, there were 2 other big tables free in the room in hindsight i should have asked then to be moved but we moved our table over a bit instead as i didnt want the couple next to us to be embarrassed either if you know what i mean.. we ordered steak and monkfish with risotto which actually burned me when i went to eat it.. fish was like rubber, I can only assume it was microwaved it was that hot and bland, steak was nice to be fair presented with half burnt potato chips, but these dishes were not cheap 30 E each like! got a baileys coffee after which came in the smallest of wine glasses and that was like nearly 9E.. anyway when we went to complain about the whole experience it was basically dismissed and we were told that there was a christening on and they were busy etc.. also we our covid certs were not checked until we were sitting down waiting on our food, I found the managment/owners staff rude, food was basic and plain and could have done much more to make our experience enjoyable, we wont be back, also please get rid of your wooden board with the specials and deserts which is plonked on a chair in front of you disgraceful,,,

Very disappointed with my first visit to your restaurant on Saturday 31st July. In hindsight the alarm bells should have rung when I received at least 3 phone calls about my booking. Twice I had to ring back as whoever rang hung up quick so I had to ring back not recognising the number. Chaos even with staff re booking.On arrival to a practically empty outdoor area we were led to our table for 4 with 3 just seats. Staff had to get another seat despite reservation being made for four people days in advance. No cutlery or glasses on the table. Nothing ready. Very sparse table. Two of the party ordered from the 'specials board' monkfish scampi with sautéed potatoes and a few scraps of limp salad on the plate for €29 was disgraceful. Very basic would have at least expected a nice tossed salad bowl served separately. The steak was the same poorly presented with the veg consisting of onion and mushrooms. The salmon gratin was nice. Staff seemed to be under pressure. We were so looking forward to this meal but left totally deflated by the experience. No atmosphere whatsoever even a bit of background music to create some ambience for diners. My son-in-law picked up the tab in honour of my husband's birthday which upset us as we all agreed it was terrible bad value.

If you want modern bland decor and a swimming pool for the kids, then go somewhere else. If you want a place with character run by very friendly people, then this is your place. The tasting menu is very, very good and at €75pp including paired wine with each course, it's incredible value. I can count on one hand the places that I would consider returning to. And this place makes the grade.

From start to finish the experience was incredible with spacious rooms, friendly staff, safe environment, and incredible food. We did 2 nights and on the second we did the incredible Tasting Menu which was a stunning 8 course meal matched with the perfect wine and the food was Devine! Everyone was so helpful and Anne especially provided superior service and even cooked some of the dishes on the menu herself! Definitely the place to stay in Youghal as you can easily walk around town and see all the historical sites and never have to stray far from the hotel. We will definitely go to Youghal again and definitely will stay as Aherns for the comfort, food and incredible service.

We stayed for 3 nights over the August bank holiday. We had a lovely room with a small balcony. The hotel is small with lots of narrow corridors. The staff are lovely very friendly. We ate every evening in the restaurants and the food was really good. If you like seafood, which we do, it will be right up your street. The room was very spacious, (it was called a junior suite I think). The bed was big and very comfortable the shower was very good as well. Youghal is a lovely town with great history. The beach outside the town is great for a walk on the boardwalk. We had a lovely weekend.
