This is a wonderful restaurant in Youghal in Co Cork. A group of us visited recently and we has a great night. Early bird menu available with an excellent choice. IT is well priced. A open roaring fire was to greet us. Staff very helpful and attentive. Steak done to perfection We will be vack

The first time we ate here we found the insulting and sarcastic waitress who forgot items we had ordered to be quirky and amusing. On our second visit the rudeness was not funny. As for the food my medium rare had to be sent back as it was rare and cold inside. No second drinks without calling for service and... More

As we travel through Ireland many locations that we visit this years were places that our families visited over 30 years ago, some might be still owned by the same people, other's will have been bought by new owners. This sometimes makes it easy to allow for small mistakes to slide, if you have fond memories of a place, you... More

Several weeks in advance we had booked the restaurant for 8pm. As we were early we first had a drink in the bar. it was very... More

Visiting Youghal in September, and having chedcked out Aherne's on Tripadvisor, we decided to try it for ourselves and so myself, my wife and a friend went into Ahernes at lunchtime.. With just 4 American tourists at one table and a elderly couple at another, we waited for the unoccupied lady standing behind the bar to acknowledge us. After a... More

We ate at Ahernes .during a brief stop on a recent holiday in Ireland. We ate in the bar area, which was welcoming and unpretentious. Our waitress was a. very. pleasant mature lady. My husband had the two course set meal, which he said was delicious and I had scallops with roast Mediterranean vegetables. This was one of the best... More

Ate here over the weekend and was disappointed after hearing so many good things about the food. I felt the menu was dated and while there was plenty of seafood to choose from it did not live up to expectation. It was really pricey too for the size of the servings. Basic sides accompanied the dishes with a green salad... More

We visited Aherns for dinner on a Saturday night. We booked via email and received a very prompt response. There's a lovely bar for a drink beforehand with an extensive wine and whiskey list. The dining room was beautifully decorated and had a great ambience with piano playing in the background. A nice size menu with a little for everyone,... More

Expansive menu of fresh fish with locally caught items. Pricing at highend. Large portions delivered with 3 course selction - a lot of food to consume for one person. Service is very fast, very helpful, and dining area well lighted with rich feeling. Also enjoyed fabulous breakfast as part of B&B Townhouse lodging.
