My wife and I were in Skibbereen over the weekend and had a beautiful meal in this pub. Staff were friendly and helpful, the menu was quite broad and the food we did order was delicious. I had the fish and my wife had the burger. Both meals were big hearty portions, the food was fresh and tasty, and my... More

The Eldon is a big place just a few steps from the centre of the town but quietly out of the way of the hustle and bustle which means that not a lot of people visiting might not realise its there! Luckily it was recommended to us by the woman who owned the BnB we were staying at. The menu... More

The team of Chris and Mr Long as they call him has left nothing to imagination!!! The décor, the charm, the taste and the buzz ....all melts down here at the Eldon. Eldon is not only a hotel, a restaurant but history in motion. The only hotel that connects the republic of this Island to the turbulent past and to... More

As a favourite dining spot of ours, one can always guarantee excellent quality food. Their menu is extensive catering to all tastes and is particularly accommodating for coeliacs as gluten free options are labelled on the menu. We have always found the service to be prompt and both the waiting and bar staff are particularly friendly and helpful.The Eldon is... More

It was a quiet evening with only 3-4 other tables having food in the bar. The service was very slow considering how quiet it was. We shared crab cakes to start with chilli jam. The crab cakes were fine. The jam was a bit sickly sweet. The side salad was absolutely doused in dressing and was unfortunately a portent of... More

Terrible food and staff that couldn't care less about it. If you're ever lucky enough to end up in such a beautiful location as West Cork and Skibbereen so obviously are,when it comes to meal times,avoid the Eldon. They're rolling with a pretty basic menu that you would think would be hard to mess up...Well I thought so anyway. I... More

Went here for lunch recently and was very pleased overall with the food and service. Got breadsticks and vegetables with hummous to share for starters which were both beautifully presented and delicious! Then we had the best pizza we've had in a long time ! They were made with all fresh ingredients and you could really notice the difference !... More

We were visiting west cork for the bank holiday and dropped into the Eldon to eat. Its a gem! There was a group of us and a great menu with something to suit everyone- we shared the bread sticks and dips to start followed by the best pizza ever, cooked in a wood fire stove, others had BBQ pork chops...

Went for a meal on a Saturday evening in the Eldon. Staff are genuine and friendly, food is excellent quality and competitively priced and there is a very nice setting within the pub. It started getting loud later on but we were finished eating at this stage. Overall a good all round venue for food and drink in Skibbereen,
