With my wife, we were entertaining an elderly relation, who is wheelchair bound.
The staff could not have been more helpful and Derval in particular was most kind in accommodating our guest.
He loves the wings which were by all accounts excellent. He also tried the Crowder which I had too as a main and it is I think the best I ever had. He loved it too.
My wife really enjoyed the wings too, and the mushroom soup.
This was our second visit and we have already promised to return with our guest "asap".....

Great bar in Skerries Harbour. On a sunny day you will find everyone standing outside and over at the railings admiring the view and enjoying the buzz.

My daughter had a family birthday get together in Joe Mays upstairs function room on 6th May. It was a perfect evening thanks to Joe Mays who had a huge part in ensuring my daughters milestone birthday was memorable and fun for everybody from old to the young kids.
Skerries harbour view from Joe Mays Function room is beautiful, the room is spacious and accommodates absolutely everything from private bar (if required), music system, private bathrooms, room to dance and comfortable chairs for the older party attendees. The pub downstairs is tranquil and relaxing during the day and on weekend evenings becomes vibrant and sociable. Whilst the downstairs bar is very separate from upstairs function room the staff are still very attentive . The service Joe laid on was top class, the room was freshly cleaned and pristine with wine glasses laid out sparkling and complementary jugs of kids refreshment drinks . I was really surprised with the food, i was expecting typical pub food patters and what we got was top of the range food, fresh chicken croutons , chicken wings in a delicious spicy sauce with garlic dips on the side and potato cubes in a tasty herby marinade, only down side was that I wasn't expecting the food to be so good to advised guest to have dinner and expect finger food so nobody was hungry enough to enjoy this great food and the platters were so generous that we also had lots of leftover. Joe and his staff are exemplary, nothing was a problem and their 'can do' attitude was a breath of fresh air and took all the stress out of organizing a milestone bday where your main aim is a happy birthday and a good time for all the guests who took the time to travel to skerries to share the celebration. Thank you Joe May and your great staff for an excellent venue 10/10, the best!

You wont be disappointed if tou are a fish lover as portions are always fresh and plentiful as evidenced by the waiting times for a table.

It's always worth it to stop in to Joe's for a pint. They have one of the best pints of Guinness in Skerries, and a nice relaxed atmosphere.
It's location on one of the only westerly facing harbours on the east coast of Ireland, mean that it's also a great spot in the summer for sitting outside with a pint watching the sun set.

Joe May's Pub is a very popular pub with the bikers who come for the Skerries 100 in the Summer. It is where all Stoops customers are sent while waiting on a table for their restaurant. It is also a very popular venue for the locals who just want a chat & a quite drink. It is nothing fancy but it has a good atmosphere with lovely views of the harbour in the Summer when almost everyone sits outside.

Joe Mays' hasn't changed that much in forty years. Still has the wooden benches and wooden stools in the bar areas. The view is stunning ( Hate that word but it is!!!) from the front bar. The bar people especially David ,Joe, Linda and Mick are top class and chatty . If you are a tourist , you have to have a pint in Joes or you cannot say you were in "Skerries!!
