I do have a top 5 burger list. The long - lamented Oz Burger would still be no. 1 were the Oz Cafe still with us. But the Schooner Burger, in this millennium at least, is a deserved holder of the no. 1 spot and the keeper of the crown. 100% home-made, served in a firm bun with

Great service from a local who gave some great pointers for attractions. Meal was above average for everyone. Usual children's options and good choice for adults. About average price wise and no complaints.

We stayed there for New Year's Eve. Very friendly staff who looked after us so very well. Plus excellent pub and dining facilities on site. Ballycotton always worth a trip and will hopefully soon stay there again.

The room we were first located in was changed to a room in the back of the B&B. The reason was the staff learned we were overtired from our flight over to Ireland and a band was going to be playing across the street that night. The room we had was called the family room and had

I looked at Johnbarry12 review on Tripadvisor/The Schooner Tavern. First I will say before sending in a rushed review on your phone when your obviously angry always check your spelling cos review you left sounds possibly wrongly that you were so angry you didn't think you just wrote a scathing review and pressed send or you had few pints and the typing fingers were not steady. Either way your entitled to your comments but I am beginning to think its almost too easy to review nowadays when everyone has a mobile and can do it instantly and majority are not thinking first before doing it. Look if food is poisonous or facility is filthy dirty or owner is unbelievably rude well then review. BUT in lot of cases now people are angry because they are left waiting for food or they order the wrong thing and they find they do not like it or they clash with owner or staff. That is not a reason to lodge a scathing review. Think before you hit send button. Remember your most probably going to affect either good or bad a business in this case I know its a family business. Peoples livelhoods are wound up in this business, the staff jobs, the suppliers business. Your review will have an affect on all of this not to mind upsetting owners etc who may be working all hours to keep business afloat in tough economic times. Ask the questions....did you talk to the owner if you had genuine complaint first before reviewing thus giving them a chance to reply or replace your meal if that is the problem, did you have a really genuine reason to complain, was it the owners fault or your own....if you chose battered chicken and you hate batter well that is not owners fault e.g. Think logically and rationally before sending any review and only when your sure then send. I have eaten in Schooner Tavern many times when I have visited Ballycotton. The food is not Ballymaloe cuisine standard, no fancy salad dressings e.g but its good normal family food. Good steaks, really fresh fish from family boats fishing daily off Ballycotton, fresh fish gougons and real chicken breast gougons, etc etc. The food is good, place is spotless, staff are chatty and nice and nice owners who work very very hard here to keep their pub as a going concern. Its hard to please the public and very few get it right all of the time but these people try so give them a break.

"ask for a room towards the back if you are a light sleeper"
"The owners will tell you honestly about each of the four rooms."
"All four rooms are lovely."
"All rooms are good....its not a hotel its a B&B above a pub but separate entrance you get your own front door key. Its in a stunning village with lots of amazing cliff walks, fishing opportunity, swimming spots .... fab pubs just wonderful place. We go with friends and stay overnight......went recently on a well behaved hen night and it was brilliant.....meal in Schooner and music in Blackbird across the road......cannot wait to go back....should have reviewed sooner."
"Large family room at rear with bunk beds for teenagers ( Lower double upper single) two double beds"
US$102 - US$182 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
