Great little cafe in the centre of Skibbereen. Nice setting friendly staff and good food. Outside seating during the summer to people watch in bustling Skibbereen.

I formed a love affair with the Full English Breakfast very early in life and (be it English, Scots, Welsh or Irish) I know a good cooked breakfast when I see one. Full Irish was the order of the day and at 10 Euros that included 2 rounds of toast, a large pot of tea and a decent slice of... More

I went into Apple Betty's on a break from work and to meet a client. The coffee is very nice and the atmosphere is friendly. The cafe is in a great position, right in the middle of town. Nothing else to say about the place, it's just really nice!

Whenever I am in Skibbereen I just have to recharge at Apple Betty's. A good cappuccino and whatever cake looks the best that day. Always tongue-swallowing good. Take for instance "death by chocolate"... absolutely divine! A good selection of lunches - more than just delicious soups, salads and quiches - to choose from, quiet comfortable place to sit and eat.... More

Very cosy environment. Foods are lovely. Definitely recommended for a laid-back afternoon tea or just for a casual bite.

We arrived in Skibbereen after a rough sea crossing from Liverpool and the early morning drive down from Dublin. We had scrambled eggs with bacon, toast, marmalade and coffee. The food was well prepared and was served promptly. Everything was to our liking. Apple Betty's Cafe is very popular with the locals and all diners are greeted warmly.

My friend and I called in here on the afternoon of the O'Donovan brothers' homecoming, just for cake and coffee. Quite a lot of tables in the sunshine outside as well as within the coffee shop were taken, and there was an encouraging queue at the sandwich counter. The narrow width of the shop front is deceptive as there is... More
