Good Spot!
Sep 2020
While touring around on our staycation decided to pull into Wexford for the night with no booking made. Quick search online we decided to call in to Jim McGee’s to see what it was like. We were sorted with a double room straight away by a very friendly host in the bar. The room was no frills but was just what we needed after a long and weary day exploring. A great price (cheaper to book direct with them) and the room was spotlessly clean and had absolutely everything you could need. Room only, they don’t do food but it’s very near the main hub.

Super stay!
Aug 2020 • Couples
We had visited Wexford last year and stayed here- we enjoyed it so much we returned again this year. The location is fantastic just a few minutes walk from the heart of Wexford town. Central location to visit other areas and attractions. The staff were all amazing and really friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and spotlessly clean with cleaning and towel changes provided daily. Tea/coffee making also available.
I would recommend a restaurant in the town called Nosh n Coffee for breakfast- we visited multiple times as we were so impressed on our first visit- monster breakfast was delicious and the paninis were delicious.

Great spot but questionable 'lady' at the bar
Nov 2019 • Business
The best Jim McGee's I've ever stayed in, rooms are spotless, bar is amazing and food top quality however I ended up spending the night with a lady I met at the bar and something just didn't feel right.

Stop in for a drink; meet the locals!
Sep 2019
Two of our group headed up to this pub after a dinner elsewhere. We sat at the bar and had a beer each - and enjoyed our most "local color" experiences of our 2-week Ireland trip.
The bar owner greeted us from behind the bar, and came over to speak with us a half dozen times over maybe 30 minutes. He introduced us to several locals at the bar, who obviously were nightly patrons. We engaged them and him in conversations, and found that their English was so "Irish" that frequently only one of us would catch what had just been said.
The local nearest to us was up at the Karaoke microphone singing "Ring of Fire" as we left - but everyone was talking so much that virtually no one was really listening.
Definitely stop in here for a taste of real small town Ireland!

Excellent place
Sep 2019 • Couples
We really couldn’t recommend this place enough, value for money was excellent and the staff were very friendly, when I go back to Wexford this will be my first choice. The bar was lovely and cosy with so much character. Rooms were very clean and cosy. Only drawback was no breakfast but they recommended the red kettle cafe which was lovely.

Lovely quaint pub not far from town centre.
Staff very welcoming upon arrival.
Booked 2 rooms and were side by side as requested.
Rooms themselves were well appointed and very clean. Shower was awesome.
The pub downstairs is full of old charm.
Would I stay again????
Definitely

24 of booked into here for a 3 night stay . Rooms lovely and the owner Jim was most friendly and helpful always . That is the only reason he has a successful business . The lady who takes the bookings and checks you in was the most miserable and rude lady who should not be front of house customer facing . We have run hotels for 25 yrs and have to say was disgusted at her behaviour . We may have been a little noisy at times but that was to be expected . She made everyone of us feel uncomfortable . We went to her to tell her to cancel 4 of us from a booking she had made for a restaurant . We were told bluntly that we could not cancel . Big mistake ! Nobody tells us we can not do something . After that we were blanked for two days by her . We then asked her if we could use blue tack to put pictures up we were greeted with a blunt no . But once again the wonderful Jim came to the rescue . Do not let this review put you off staying there as it’s a wonderful place just a militant lady who is in the wrong job !!!!

Traditional Irish Bar with Great Accommodation!
Jul 2018 • Couples
I have visited this Bar on many occasions and have always found the staff to be welcoming and very efficient, the locals are friendly and engaging and if they like you, they may offer you the name of the winner of the next race on the television!
Both the Bar and it’s accommodations are very close to the centre of Wexford and it’s an ideal place as a base to explore the surrounding area.

On this occasion For the first time I stayed in their accommodations, having a Kingsized room.
All the accommodations are ground floor, modern, well appointed and exceptionally clean with parking directly outside of your room, the room was an excellent size and all are on suite, the bed was enormous!!

Jim McGees doesn’t do any food so for breakfast you can use Whites Hotel which is only 100m away, they give a discount if you are staying at McGees’s.

Wexford is terrible for parking these days so make sure you tick the box for your parking slot when making your booking

Nice traditonal Irish bar; avoid the back room.
Jul 2018 • Friends
Visited this quaint, reassuringly old-fashioned bar, which mainly caters for local people, on a recent weekend stay in lovely Wexford town. Immediately felt welcome and at home in the front bar area which is well-maintained in an "oldy-worldy" fashion and probably hasn't changed much in decades. The pints of stout were very reasonably priced and served cold and delicious; the service was prompt and friendly and the clientele were chatty and welcoming.

The only negative experience was when we decided to venture into the pool room which is located behind a snug at the rear of McGees. Disappointed to report that the welcoming atmosphere in this area was pretty thin on the ground. We waited our turn for a game on the table and when we got started it soon became clear that the resident pool sharks did not appreciate our presence and were not shy about letting us know this. I needn't go into detail here, but, needless to say, we did not stay long, finished up our drinks and left.

While we gained a very favourable impression of McGees overall, the experience in the back-room area was unfortunate and left a bad taste in the mouth. I would return for the authentic Irish bar experience, but I wouldn't be going anywhere near the pool-room at the back.
