“Outstanding Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

I stayed at Skelly's last night and shall be returning again next week. From the moment I walked through the door I received a friendly warm welcome from the staff and the manager Seamus & owner Pat were fantastic to chat to. The rooms are of high quality whilst the price is very competitive. I could not fault the place whatsoever. Fantastic place & wonderful people.

Stayed at Skellys twice now so no prizes for guessing I was obviously impressed the first time, or else why the second visit? A warm welcome, excellent accomodation, clean comfortable and extremely tasteful decor in all rooms. Breakfast was very good and choice of menu out of regular times was also very good. Management and staff alike were friendly and accomodating. Everything one would expect from a well established family run business, and more !

Room Tip: Book in advance.

Spent the weekend in this great family run B&B. Rooms were lovely, clean, cosy and warm and the breakfast was the best we had in Ireland. We had dinner on both nights: the food was fantastic and the portions extremely generous. There are daily specials cooked by Patrick's wife Patrice, who hails from Brazil, and the food can be served in the restaurant or in the bar beside the huge peat fire. The locals are friendly and there is great conversation and stories in the bar at night! We were really sorry to leave on Monday morning.

We proberly wouldn`t have found this place if we hadn`t been told by someone where to go, even though its on the main street. From the front it`s an off licence. When i enquired about accommodation and booked a room we were led through to a bar. From there you walk through to a lovely dining room/ restaurant and the upstairs accommodation, which was beautiful, like something out of a magazine. The owners wife, who has the credit for the rooms has done a lovely job. The two brothers who own Skellys told us the history and even today they are still the undertakers as well! Well worth a visit and stay.
