Welcome to Aherne's Townhouse & Seafood Bar

Open Weekly Wednesday-Sunday from 12 noon. 

Our family have been running Ahernes since 1923. 

Originally set up as a traditional pub and shop selling everything from a pint of Guinness to a pound of Butter run by our grandparents Madge & Jimmy Aherne. We now specilise in delicious seafood with boutique accommodation & a warm welcome. Scenic Youghal is the perfect place for exploring the south east with miles of beautiful beaches, local history and visitor attractions like the Jameson Distillery & Spike Island on our doorstep.
