“Just okay”

Stayed in Skerries in order to avoid Dublin city stay. Not real impressed with Skerries so would not choose that area again. The property is cosy and cute and owner Valerie extremely nice.
No washing machine/dryer but did not care.
The owner rents out an upstairs apt . And although the property has a pretty view of the water, felt intrusive to sit or enjoy the view as you are then right in front of a large window of the owners. So if you are not uncomfortable with sharing, it will work.
Just beware that this is not a stand alone rental and so could not give it more stars due to the nature of the set up.

We have stayed at Sunset Craig in Skerries on several occasions and have just returned from another lovely visit to this delightful town just north of Dublin. The apartment is perfect for us , peaceful and comfortable and with all mod cons . It is within walking distance of beaches , pubs , fine restaurants and shops. Sunset Craig is literally on the waterfront with a breathtaking view of the rocks and the sea and you could spend all day staring out of the windows at the little fishing boats and birdlife. Valerie , the owner, is friendly and accommodating and ensures we have all we need to feel at home . A haven to return to after a busy day sightseeing.

Don't look any further if you are searching for a place in Skerries. Stayed 5 nigfhts here and wish we could have stayed longer. This is the best, a gem. Beautiful apartment. Stunning views. Sitting on the deck watching the yachts etc. is so peaceful. Easy walk into Skerries to the pubs, shops etc. Then there is Valerie. The best host you could wish for. So helpful in every way, d
She goes over and above to make you feel welcome and assist you. Wil defintely return here on next visit to Irealnd. Hilary and Ron

Sunset Crag - the name is exactly that. Fantastic sunset views over the erratic Irish sea. A quaint locality equates peace and harmony with stunning vistas. Skerries is a delightful little fishing town where each day a new story is written. Whether it be the wild winds that come in and rough up white peaks as you rug up to escape the bellowing whispers or a stillness that is quite profound that makes the sea look like a reflective glass. All this and more is possible as you reside in the cutest little attic conversion. With a separate main bedroom you are able to have as much privacy as you want from others who may be tucking up on the lounge gazing out at the mystic sea. Combined with mod cons and the delightful Valerie who is available to answer any request Sunset Crag is a fabulous choice to have your getaway.
