We celebrated a birthday party at Skelly's during the weekend and spent amazing time at Skelly's. Pat and other team members are simply amazing. They were all very helpful, chatty and great hosts. The pub is definitely an experience which you should not miss out if you are in Midlands.It carries many stories and family traditions which is not easy... More

A group of us booked into Skelly's to celebrate a special birthday with dinner and an overnight stay. We were given a very warm welcome and Pat and the staff gave us a wonderful time with a very personal touch. The dinner was excellent, we were given our own private dining room, and the staff were very attentive and personable.... More

Visited here from the USA to see my wife's relatives in Ireland - Really good food and good variety on the menu in Skelley's restaurant - desserts were great! And the usual good choice of beers in the pub - the pic of the fireplace on their website says it all - true Irish hospitality. Worth veering off the beaten... More

The bedrooms need to be cleaned. A small TV would also be nice seeing one might not get much sleep due to the noise from the bar. Can't believe that such bad B&Bs are still allow charge €70 for a room. Stay clear.

Loved the fact I could pick my own wine from the shop to have with my dinner! dinner was delicious but the breakfast was outstanding and... More

We have stayed at Skelly's on quite a few occasions now and we are always happy to stay there. Pat and his team of restaurant and bar staff are always very helpful.

I have visited Ireland more than 20 times and feel qualified to report on this fine establishment. The people who run this B&B are really wonderful service oriented. Pat Byrne and his wife cannot do enough for the visitor. The rooms are comfortable. The breakfast just the best you can find. Do not hesitate to stop here...you will feel at... More

If you are in or near Longford, Skellys is the place to go (and not just for the summer Helium Ballon Festival! which we missed). The B&B is quiet, clean and very comfortable (spacious, clean rooms and showers!) and breakfast, if you go the whole hog, will fill your heart's desire. Best of all, the owner, Pat, was on hand...
