Shell’s Café

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Myles and Jane run the star of County Sligo, the wonderful Shells.

Dubliner Jane and South African Myles met while working in the Headland Hotel in Cornwall and clicked over a mutual love of surfing. Surfing drew them to Strandhill, and when a local landlord showed them a neglected greasy spoon premises on the seafront they twisted his arm to take over the building immediately, and opened Shells Café just ten days later. Myles leads the kitchen, taking influences from around the world and melding them together. Blackboard specials supplement their menu which includes fine breakfasts, fresh salads, burgers, sandwiches, big plates, light bites, speciality teas and desserts. Over the last four years they have become the star of Sligo County, the star of the Wild Atlantic Way, so don't miss this hot destination, and don't miss their adorable shop.
