Two couples arrived in the evening, and each had rooms with king beds. Our room was quite large, and very comfortable. The hosts have provided everything one might need, and rooms are lovely. Their breakfast is excellent, with good choices.

Very comfortable rooms, and staff couldn't have done...

We stayed overnight in the junior suite. Lovely spacious room, which caught the evening sun. Breakfast was cooked to order and included freshly squeezed orange juice. A real bonus! Dinner was tasty, with good wine selection. Enjoyable stay and a grat place for some downtime.

I had a lovely big ground floor room to myself and there is also a lovely sitting room with log fire to sit and read and enjoy a G&T before dinner. Both dinner and breakfast were delicious. Highly recommended

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this wonderful family run boutique townhouse. We stayed here over New Year with some good friends who have been here several times. The atmosphere was great and we had a brilliant time, and laugh (with the locals, hosts and other guests). The food is top class and this is a good...

I recently booked an anniversary meal with my husband at Aherne's Restaurant and I am really delighted I did.

Nothing was too much bother for the staff and the meal was served to us with no drawn out delays, just perfect. The...

Fiancee and I very much enjoyed this place during our visit to Youghal. We were taken here by friends who live in Youghal. Good drinks, good food, and good atmosphere. Definitely a place worth returning to.
