My wife and I traveled around Ireland for two weeks in celebration of our 30th wedding anniversary. Our favorite place was Youghal and Aherne's. Youghal is a historic city and a true pleasure to tour on foot. The beach is beautiful and we enjoyed a long walk. Aherne's is excellent. Our room was beautiful and impeccably clean. The sitting room with the fireplace was a lovely place to relax. We ate in both the restaurant and bar. The atmosphere, service and food were superb in the restaurant. The night we dined a very talented pianist played throughout the evening. One evening we ate our meal late in the bar. Again the food was excellent. The bar is warm, friendly and a great place to spend an evening. The seafood as well as all the food we had was excellent. The hotel is well situated for walking around Youghal. We thoroughly enjoyed the town. We enjoyed walking along the harbor and talking to the fisherman. The town's history is fascinating and the historic sites are well marked and explained. The tourist center museum is a good place to start. Johnny, Kate and the entire staff are warm, gracious and made our stay memorable. We will recommend Aherne's to our friends and family and plan to return. Michael and Jean

Myself and my Wife (early 30's) stayed in Ahernes on the 14th and 15th of October 2011. We didn't know what to expect, as we would normally stay in a "bigger" hotel. From the second we arrived, we were made to feel totally at home. The level of service we received was genuinely the best we have ever experienced in a hotel in Ireland. We ate in the restaurant on both nights, and in the bar for lunch on the first day. The food was amazing, again, with brilliant service levels. The room we had was large, airy and spotlessly clean, with a balcony overlooking the courtyard.
Everything Youghal has to offer is right on your door step, making the hotel the most ideal place to stay. This was our first time in Youghal, and it certainly won't be the last. We have decided to make our trip to Youghal a regular thing, with Ahernes being our first choice to stay.
If you are looking for a hotel to stay in around this area of Cork, or somewhere to use as a base when travelling around Cork/Waterford, you can't look past Ahernes.
Thank you to Noreen, Paula and the rest of the team in Ahernes for an amazing weekend.

Lovely little place , very welcoming, mixed generations on stay , my parents (60's ) & my kids 6& 8 . All felt relaxed and comfortable. I travel a lot and this place makes a change from modern, faceless hotels. Food lovely, staff very friendly . Rooms a little tired, tv, hairdryer& showers and toilties all need to be upgraded (but maybe that's my modern demands taking hold:).Would recommend to a friend anytime .

This little place was recommended to us by a new friend in Dublin who told us about the Blue Book Ireland hotels. What a great find. Our room was spacious, comfortable, great king bed and good breakfast. Noreen was a lovely reception lady and warm and friendly. Owner John Fitzgibbon was friendly and recommended our next night's stay which was also good. Definitely a good hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor bay view room!

They have two luxury rooms where pets are allowed and for anyone doing the s.w route from rosslare this is a must stopover location. Busy bar and seafood restaurant are both worth a visit, good walks and nice town and beaches to discover. Internet not yet available in all rooms and breakfast could be improved. However the rooms and the lounge are exceptional and I doubt anyone would be disappointed with their stay. We will certainly return, the sooner the better!

We stayed for 3 nights in June, our first time in Youghal. The accommodation was excellent, with old furniture full of character and oversized bed. A very relaxing atmosphere, with a marvellous open fire in the sitting-room area. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and very helpful with information and directions for places of interest.
Breakfast was superb, served by the management on 2 of the 3 mornings. We had booked for dinner on 2 of our 3 nights, but the food was so good we booked again for the 3rd evening. The food was delicious, with a great range of fresh seafood - our favourite (there was also fish on the breakfast menu each morning).
If you are looking for a modern spa-type hotel with leisure facilities and swimming pool etc, this is not the place, thankfully, but if you want good old-fashioned Irish hospitality and excellent food, you will not be disappointed.
