Olive is a very welcome addition to Skerries, as it is an Italian style deli as well as a cafe. Food therefor is deli style with delicious coffee and cold meats and cheese. Atmosphere is great, with outside heated seating as well as indoors. Well worth a visit.

This place is great - wonderful athmosphere - excellent tasty food - scones are delicious - can be chilly outside but they provide blankets to keep you cosy - and it is wonderful to sit out the front and watch the world go by - its relatively expensive but you don't mind paying a bit more for such quality ..

Could be a great place, good (if expensive) food, but service is slow. It shouldn't be difficult to get simple food like sandwiches and salads out to customers quickly, but they seem to take forever at times. Not able to handle it when the place is busy. If they get their act together, this will be a great place. I... More

This is one of those spots that you hope you will come across. It has such charm, good food and nice people and full, and with people waiting for a table, oh! if only every town had one, come on next year, sorry cannot get back till then.

Olive is probably the best place in skerries to have lunch- lively soup and Panini's and generally good service and atmosphere. A decent selection of cakes and treats too, if you're just having a cuppa. It's a little more expensive than I'd like, but it's good tasty food.

My partner and I had lunch in Olive today, we sat outside under the patio heater and shared a platter of cheeses, olives, relish and a selection of cold meats with delicious crusty bread. It was extremely tasty and we were even given extra bread free of charge without asking by a very courteous and friendly staff member. While it... More

Olive made a fantastic picnic for us all (12 of us) to help celebrate our friends 50th birthday. We came over from UK and had a great day on the beach with the BEST picnic ever! The food was wonderful, beyond our expectations. The best Pate and tapenade around ! They delivered it in a beautiful wicker basket with all... More
