We had our wedding in Ballycotton in July 2013, and had a meal for 15 people in the Schooner Tavern the night before. Mike, the owner, is very friendly and accommodating. The food is hearty pub grub, huge portions and quite reasonably priced.

Myself and my partner stayed here over a weekend and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The bar is lovely, with a great selection of beers and drinks. The food is hearthy and tasty! Fish goujons in particular were delicious with the lime and basil dip! Our room was warm, clean and served our needs! The couple who own the... More

Owner was very friendly. He gave us books to look at about the history of Ballycotton and was able to recommend things in the area. There was a wood burning fire and delicious beer. All the local patrons were friendly.

My wife and I have just had another very relaxing time with Brid, Michael & family over the Halloween long weekend, which we extended. As usual, it was a delight to stay here and as usual the home cooked food was just great. Ballycotton is a wonderful place if you want the quiet life, ie, far removed from the maddening... More

After riding a motorcycle around the circumference of the island and staying at numerous small town taverns, this was by far my favorite stop. Mike and Brid are probably the warmest people I met on my trip to Ireland and that's saying something. Great people, beautiful place and great food. The room was clean, nice and had free wifi. Mike... More

Place is spotless, the menu range is great, quality of food is great. The steaks were like butter and the onion rings were home made, finger licking good. The scampi is to die for, no nouveau cusine here, they fall the off the plate with the quantily of them. The side salad is so fresh, dressing lovely not too heavy.... More

Myself and my partner and our 4 kids have been here here twice and we will return again. Decor: Very very nice wood finish throughout the bar with big screens at either ends. It's very comfortable and encouraged a longer stay for a beer or 2 extra :) (wife was driving!) Staff: Very polite, very welcoming and kid friendly. What... More

Have been known to have a drink and some food in The Schooner with Mike and Brid every now and then. Lovely people,friendly and helpful. They have been known to lend books to their customers. Both the beer and the food are good and the company is always interesting from the regulars to the 'drop ins'.

Dropped into the Schooner on two occasions. The first time the place was buzzing and the atmosphere was fantastic. Even though lots were going on the service remained high quality and very personable. Even though we were from the other side of the world we were made to feel like locals. The next time there was just us and Michael.... More
