Our favorite place of the trip. Seamus was exceptional. Made us feel so special. We arrived early and they got our room ready, made fresh coffee and later built a fire. Met one of the owners, Pat, very gracious. Breakfast was superb, room was quaint and the shower was the best. We got some great tips and advice. Would totally...

Great stay in comfortable surroundings. Welcoming management and staff who went the extra mile to ensure we had an enjoyable visit. Hospitality was second to none.The room was excellent and afforded a comfortable nights sleep followed by an amazing choice for breakfast, including one of the best Full Irish breakfast I have had (unless I cooked it myself). Highly recommended...

It looks fairly ordinary from the outside, but Skelly's is a real gem. They are in the midst of upgrading the B&B part, and my room was exceptionally large for an Irish B&B, with a large bed and good bathroom. Better yet, downstairs is a great Irish pub with a peat fire, and the dining room is quite nice, with...

I stayed with my wife at Skelly's Guesthouse nestled away behind the Off Licence and Bar in Ballymahon on the 12/13 Aug 2016. The welcome we received from Pat the owner and his friendly staff was second to none. It made me feel proud to be Irish. The double room and bathroom were plush and extremely comfortable. There is a...

All I can say about skellys is the food is amazing, nice warm welcoming atmosphere, really friendly staff. The steak is amazing. I like medium rare and often been to other restaurants where I would not get the steak exactly medium rare. In Skellys it was amazing spot on. We travel up and down the country on business and pass...

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

Skellys is a complete gem of a place. From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were excellent, including a family room. Very comfortable beds, free wifi, great showers. 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...

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 -...

I stayed in Skellys for the last two weeks in September when I was working in Ballymahon and all I can say is its a great spot. 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...
