I discovered this place because I'm staying at the hotel next door! However, this is a warm place with a lively fire place. The wine list is ok and the dinner menu is diverdified. Twice I tried starters and twice I got surprised by their big size! Waiters are always around for pleasing guests... read more

Just returned from a wonderful birthday meal at the skylon. Amazing value €22 for 3 course meal or €18 for 2 course. Wonderful waitress who was attentive but not overbearing. They spoiled my mam for her 85th. Can't wait to go back.

I had a meal as part of a large group so we had to choose a mains from Turkey & Ham, pan fried chicken or lasagne. I opted for the Turkey and Ham which was average - taste was fine but the amount was quite small. The service was very efficient and friendly and the servers were chatty and helpful.... More
