While visiting my family in Skibbereen for the Christmas holidays. This little place became my regular coffee spot. Their sandwiches are always fresh and scrumptious. Along with their speciality coffees and selections of sweet treats, the cafe is a must when in Skibb. The atmosphere is always jovial and the staff are friendly.

I have been going to Apple Betty's since it opened and have never, ever been disappointed with any food or drink served to me, family or friends. The staff are the nicest people as well. I would highly recommend the chicken, brie and pesto panini - my favourite! Sticky toffee pudding, brownie, Death By Chocolate cake, carrot cake - they... More

Went here last month, hadn't been in years, very busy little spot! Price was pretty good. All salads were in small containers, thus looked & tasted so fresh. Got 2 paninis, felt one lacked more filling. Got the soup & it was sour which was a disappointment. Would have asked for a refund but I didn't want to make a... More

I nearly feel like taking a trip from Cork City down to Skib more regularly for this Chai Lattes at Apple Bettys, the best I've had since Melbourne Australia! Loved their cakes and treats as myself and my boyfriend stopped in three times on our visit for takeaway coffee and cakes!

We popped into Apple Betty’s for a coffee and a snack during our visit to Skibbereen. The staff was very pleasant; not only did they assist us with our meal, but also gave some recommendations about things to do in-town. Reasonably cute atmosphere, though fairly functional in appearance. The cappuccinos were very good. Unfortunately, the baked items disappointed; some bars... More

Dropped in for coffee en route to Clonakilty, and found this to be a vibrant, friendly space with welcoming staff, which is a major bonus when you've been driving a while! Their coffee was very good. We would definitely return.
