We didn't spend much time in the bar as we where here for a party elsewhere but when we arrived we where given a warm welcome and shown everything. Room was very clean, quite and the full Irish breakfast went down great! Highly recommend Skelly's if you are in the area

We ate in the bar a number of times, the menu has excellent meat and fish, with a good variety of choices. My sister, a vegerarian, is... More

As a group of 7 we booked in advance but a delayed flight meant we had to change our plans. A quick phone call and this was no problem for Skelly's and they changed the booking. When we did visit we'd asked for several twin rooms but as they couldn't accommodate this they gave every one a single room -... More

From start to finish I was looked after by an absolute gentleman called Seamus and couldnt have asked for more. The rooms were spotless and spacious (I was in room 1 the first... More

A group of us booked into Skelly's to celebrate a special birthday with dinner and an overnight stay. We were given a very warm welcome and Pat and the staff gave us a wonderful time with a very personal touch. The dinner was excellent, we were given our own private dining room, and the staff were very attentive and personable.... More

Visited here from the USA to see my wife's relatives in Ireland - Really good food and good variety on the menu in Skelley's restaurant - desserts were great! And the usual good choice of beers in the pub - the pic of the fireplace on their website says it all - true Irish hospitality. Worth veering off the beaten... More
