Words fail to describe the food and people at Fantasic Flavours Ice Cream Parlour. The owners are very nice and friendly with the wife speaking fluent German to our guests and making them feel welcome. The décor is delightfully creative and shabby-chic with everything from the jerseys of the local teams they sponsor to a wooden North American Lacrosse stick and antique baseball glove hanging in the window and authentic old posters of Youghal hung on the walls.

As for the food? We enjoyed our cheesecakes and cappuccinos while our guests devoured the artisanal ice cream the owners make themselves in the shop.

We were so delighted we got a tour of the kitchen and the husband showed us how he made a special batch of Guiness ice cream with chocolate and the aroma was incredible. In all, the décor, friendliness of the owners, cleanliness of the shop, variety of flavours and very good pricing left us all delighted. The owners really understand good service and good food.

Visited this morning with my daughter. Walked in and was greeted by a lovely guy sitting behind the counter, he was working away at something making Icecream I guess. Nice clean little place, so far so good. Quick plesent service, got our ice cream and I can safely say it is the best Icecream I ever had. Fantastic. I'm no expert but the icecream in a little shop in Youghal is the best I have ever had anywhere in the world. Good on ya man great shop and you have a lovely manner. We have visited two times now and my only regret is I cannot get to this shop more often. I must ask next time if he will sell bulk take home containers.
