this establishment has a great reputation and we thought we'd be sure of a good coffee. well we were wrong. I don't remember a poorer cappuccino anywhere. It baffles me that a cappuccino could be so badly prepared.

Delicious seafood is still to the fore at this restaurant. The service was attentive and we had a great white wine to accompany our meal.

We hadn't been in Youghal in quite a few years, but always loved Ahearns, and we were not disappointed, it is still as good as ever. Friendly service, excellent food, we won't leave it as long again

We had a family gathering here recently and it was perfect. From the open fire in restful common area, the big, clean and comfortable rooms, everything was very good. But the star of the show was the 'Tasting Menu' dinner we had,it was fantastic ! No question it was the match of anything I've had elsewhere (generous wine pairing also).... More

I visited with some friend recently as we all had vouchers...and we were all delighted! The rooms were very large and comfortably with all the extras you'd need. The evening meal was amazing! Each course was beautifully presented and ever so tasty. The staff were really friendly and breakfast was delicious too. I'd definitely go back!

We had a fantastic three night stay and could not pick fault in any way. We ate in both bars and the bar food was first class. On the Saturday evening we wined & dined in their restaurant whilst a piano was played in the background, very pleasant. We were due to leave early on Monday to catch our flight... More

On our arrival we had a great and pleasant chat with the Barman/Waiter. We went for scallops, prawns and fish dish's. I was doubtful about getting scallops but they were really excellent and the risotto rice and spinach was just right to go with it. The Prawns dish was really good with lots of it and big too. The fish... More

We celebrated two family birthdays here, with 10 of us staying overnight for two nights. Every aspect of the stay was fantastic - the food was out of this world (not only the taster dinner, but also the breakfast), the rooms were beautifully furnished and lit, we had access to a beautiful living room with open fire, the service was...

Maybe it was what we chose but we were both a bit disappointed with our meals. My fish pie was predominantly potato with less fish than I was expecting and my husband had a similar experience with his dish which was very potatoey too. That said it is a very nice place and the staff were attentive and helpful. Maybe... More

Ok I'm living in youghal so I'm probably a bit biased but it really is worth the stroll it's such a beautiful walk. I love walking out a long the promenade and then heading out a long the boardwalk especially in the winter on a day like today
