We eat in Ahernes regularly and it is always consistent, the food is a showcase of Irish food at its best. The seafood is among the best we've had, excellent oysters, prawns, scallops and a great choice of all fish. All dishes are perfectly cooked and prepared, We particularly recommend the rock oysters and prawns in garlic butter. The restaurant has the added bonus of a great pianist and she has an excellent selection to compliment the beautiful food. The staff are helpful and very friendly. Visiting this restaurant is a must.

Had lunch in this restaurant. We had seafood and fish starters and mains all of which was excellent. Our children had chicken goujons,sautéed potatoes and veg from the children's menu which we usually try to avoid as our experience in Irish restaurants/pubs is that they are usually frozen goujons and chips even when told they are claiming to be 'fresh'....but we were happy to find all their food was freshly prepared and really good. The service was also faultless and if we are down in east cork again we will certainly be visiting Ahernes again. A really enjoyable experience!

Like a pint of Guinness or leprechauns come to mind when one thinks of Ireland
Aherne's in Youghal is as traditionally Irish as Ireland itself
Aherne's is a must see whenever in Ireland
The food is sublime and the service is unfaultable

Crab claws and garlic prawns to die for! Generous portions. Super staff who gave a warm Irish welcome. Couldn't fault it.

We had lunch off their specials menu and were not disappointed! The mussels were cooked to perfection, plump and flavorful. The soda bread that accompanies every meal is a house specialty that they sell by the loaf for take away, and it is so delicious I can see why. Our Youghal Bay wild caught salmon was some of the freshest tasting salmon I have ever had. A goat cheese and beet root salad came with ample mixed greens and was delicately dressed.We had no room for dessert, sorry to say. I only wish we had the time to eat there again.
