What a stunning location. Basil Sheils is situated opposite a river out in the country. Lots of places to sit outside and inside with the choices of the restaurant, lounge/bar area. Basil Sheils is by far one of my favourite places I've been to dine. The food was spectacular and the service was fantastic. All staff were so friendly and were quick to serve you. I wasn't intending on having a big meal but ended up having 3 courses as ever course was delicious. We will definitely be back here.

We had our wedding here in August 2021. From the day and hour we booked, the staff, especially Geraldine & Michelle, they could not do enough for us. They kept in touch and asked exactly what we wanted. Nothing was too big or too difficult, sheils agreed to all our requests and made it happen. From start to finish our day was exactly what we wanted, the staff were so attentive and friendly, the head chef Connor & crew completely blew us away with his food (everyone raved about every dish) simply beautiful food. Wedding or not the food is too die for! It's lashed from start to finish on our wedding day and the staff were so accomadating and made sure this made no impact on our day! The atmosphere was relaxed, which was our main 'want' for our day, and we couldn't help but make a run for it to the bridge for some photographs in the beautiful surroundings. We could not recommend Basil Sheils enough if you are looking a wedding venue or even just to go for dinner or a night out. We had the best day, & Sheils made everything so easy and stress free. Thank you to all the staff.
