Eating Out,Guest House / B&Bs
Established in the late 1880's Basil Sheils was one of the last bottle houses (no draft beer) in the North of Ireland. Over recent years it has evolved immensely from the small Traditional Irish Bar to something quite special. The present owner has retained much of its unique character and timeless charm. He developed the living accommodation to provide self-catering and bed and breakfast facilities for both individuals and families visiting the area. There are 2 types of accommodation available. Enjoy our delicious ‘Sheils Fry' in our renowned Forge Restaurant, or choose Self Catering with fully equipped kitchen appliances and bathroom furnishings.
