The food here was really good and we were entertained throughout our meal by a pianist, although he very subtilly played away in the corner. Luckily I had booked a table earlier in the day as there were 7 in our party, including 2 young...More

Saved this spot for our last dinner in Youghal. Well worth the wait! My friend had the seafood special, wonderful. Service friendly and helpful. Good parking nearby, but a short walk from our hotel.

Very expensive for what was essentially pub grub. €66 for two main courses, a kids meal and a baby bowl. Kids sausages not just under cooked but completely raw. Definitely will not return here.

Seriously do not understand some of the negative reviews, but seems like maybe they did not understand the ambiance. Slow down, relax and enjoy a nice dining experience. A local took us to one of her favorite restaurants and Aherne’s did not disappoint. Be sure...More

We knew we had to eat at Ahernes when we saw all the good reviews, during our week's stay in Youghal. On a quiet-ish weekday lunch time we ate in the bar, and were promptly served with efficiency and professionalism, by the bosses. I really...More
