We stayed here on a whim last Saturday night and were totally blown away. We checked in to our well appointed townhouse suite shortly after 2 pm. We had a huge room with private access, kitchenette, loads of space and beautiful antiques. The colour scheme was not exactly to my taste but I appreciated that the room clearly had a... More

Stayed with my family for 2 nights. Had an amazing seafood meal in the evening, not particularly cheap but the quality and friendly service was well worth it. No complaints about the food. Hotel is simple but the only issue I had was the double bed was so bad I slept on the floor, changed beds with kids next night... More

Many decades ago I remember tasting my first mussels in garlic butter in Aherne’s……and the impression remains. In May this year we stayed overnight for a family get together.Decided to go for the fillet cooked “blue” as the main course. And true blue it was…...to perfection. The benchmark for all future blue adventures but I don’t expect it ever to... More

Stayed in Aherne's after our drive down from the North of Ireland, a very warm and welcoming place to stop with well appointed large room. We had our evening meal and that was just super in every aspect, both food and service great. Breakfast was a little shabby in it's presentation and indeed it's content but by no means the... More

Great food. Friendly service. Spacious room. Aherne's served as Youghal headquarters for our golf tour for three days in June. Both breakfast and fresh seafood dinners were delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. A great time was had by all.

We loved our stay which included a 3 course dinner and breakfast. The rooms were clean and cosy, service was very friendly and the food was fantastic at a very affordable price. I am looking forward to visiting again.

... Aherne's is a good choice. As other reviewers have noted, the seafood in the bar and restaurant is excellent. It is fresh, local and very well prepared. The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable. What makes the place, however, are the owners and staff. They are friendly, talkative, well-informed and hospitable by instinct. Sit by the fire in the... More

I have seen Aherne's Seafood Bar in the Bluebook for years but never got around to visiting until last week when I was in the area. Place looks tired and can't vouch for the hotel side HOWEVER the seafood in pub and restaurant was really excellent. Not fine dining, but freshly cooked seafood with lovely sauces and good sides (available... More

Stopped off at Aherne's yesterday and I must say that the quality of sea food was top class. Service was quick and efficient.... if i have one small criticism it would be that when customers are leaving and paying their bill it would be nice to be asked if everything was ok or even to say thank you!

We stayed here again and it was as good as ever. The bedrooms are spotless and very well equipped. The breakfast was of the highest quality, the best of local ingredients. The management are friendly and professional . We ate one dinner here and I would give it full marks. We will return .
