During our stay at the adjacent Skeffington Arms Hotel, we had two great meals in The Skeff.
Our servers Bronwyn and Tracy were wonderful at making us feel welcomed and well attended to.

We were a group of four and had a very nice Pub lunch for 47 euro -we had the Asian Beef Salad Garlic Mushrooms, Beef Fajitas, and a Steak Sandwich which was mine and it was very good. Located on the Eyre Square in Galway.
Good wait staff and quick service. I am sure we would of returned if we had not left for home.

We stumbled upon the Skeff on a cold,wet afternoon and were charmed by the decor and warmed by the roaring fireplace as well as the vast array of delectable baked goodies they had on display.An Irish coffee and ginger cake was the perfect antidote for our shivering bodies. After reading the reviews, I only wish we had more time to go back for dinner there.
