Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been travelling to Sligo for almost 40 years to visit family and have visited O'Grady's pub n many occasions but never stayed there. The B & B rooms are large, clean and value for money if a little basic. What is different about them though is the tremendous welcome you get and the generosity and friendliness of Jerry, Anne, Mrs. O'Grady and everyone else associated with the property. We had a wonderful weekend with a fabulous last night with Family & friends enjoying the hospitality that has always been the hallmark of O'Grady's Bar. Grat value for money - keep it up Jerry, we'll see you again soon!

We had a wonderful weekend in Coolaney, Co. Sligo on 3rd February. Apart from the beautiful Sligo Way which is very picturesque and unspoilt, we were blown away by the old fashioned Irish hospitality we enjoyed at O’Grady’s B and B. It was amazing to see Mrs O’Grady herself still working full time behind the bar, her senior years did not show in the slightest as she pulled pints, lifted trays of glasses and chatted to customers, she is unbelievable! The star for me was Mary who I understand has been helping out at O’Gradys since she was very young and despite working full time in London always helps out when she is home. Mary is the epitome of Irish hospitality, warm, welcoming, friendly and cooks a great breakfast! Definitely worth a return visit and a high 10 recommendation!!! The Mulrooneys & Martin from Portlaoise.

Wonderful experience staying for 4 days in the charming village of Coolaney. Stayed at one of the modern and comfortable self-catering houses provided by O'Grady's pub/B&B/market. Had a beautiful backyard and private parking. O'Grady's market next door provided all we needed for meals, snacks and the Post for mailing. Playground for children just a block away and a river walk area also a block away for walking, running or relaxing in a beautiful park. Short drive to Sligo and all the area has to offer. Jerry O'Grady and family offered hospitality beyond anything I have experienced. If we needed something and couldn't find it locally, Jerry helped us get what we needed. Highly recommend.oo

We stayed here in the self catering houses the week of our wedding. The houses were great , loads of room spotless, very up to date and everything you need. All the family are very helpful, we even got helpful contacts for babysitting etc before we arrived.

I stayed at JJ O'Gradys over St Patrick's weekend as part of a walking weekend of the Sligo Way. Anne, her Mam and family could not have been more hospitable. We had fabulous breakfasts both mornings which set us up for the days trekking. There was unlimited access to a fridge, tea/coffee/snacks etc and even a tumbler drier for our wet walking gear. And believe me it was wet! We came back to the BandB on the evening of St. Patrick's Day absolutely dripping wet and very muddy, and Anne was there to greet us helping us to dry off for our next day's walking. She never once looked askew at us as we trailed through her house but helped us use her radiators, tumbler drier etc and even cleared out the hotpress so that we could dry out our boots etc. We ordered food from the local Chinese (being too tired to entertain the notion of heading out for something to eat) and Anne let us use her dining room, providing us with plates, cutlery etc. There was also a great pub and grocery shop attached which was perfect for stocking up on provisions for our lunches for next day. I was only sorry that I was too wrecked to engage in the festivities and the great singsong coming from the bar on St. Patrick's night. This is the ideal place to stay if you are thinking of walking any of the Sligo Way - fantastically located for that purpose and the facilities are ideally suited for recharging your batteries between walking days. Accompanied by a most authentic display of hospitality and warmth (despite the families obviously very busy lifestyle), I could not have asked for anything more. Staying here contributed in no small way to the success of what was a wonderful weekend walking the beautiful Sligo Way.

Stayed here for 2 nights on the 1st and 2nd of July to take part in the 36km Sligo Camino walk.This is a first class family run B&B in the Heart of what has to be the most idyllic, beautiful and peaceful village in the west of Ireland.The rooms were clean and spacious with quality beds for a good nights sleep and the breakfast was very tasty with lots of choice and first class service. Everything about this stay is pure quality and is very reasonably priced for the pure joy in discovering this Perfect and Pleasant family B&B in Beautiful surroundings in the middle of Yeats Country. The Camino walk starts just across the main street from this B&B,Shop and Pub.

Great shop when in the area on business, spotless clean, friendly staff, and very afordable considering it is a small rural business, however on a few occasions I have found stock to be out of date, perhaps this is something that can be looked at, apart from that it is a great and thriving business by all accounts.

Just spent three days in Coolaney at the O'Grady family B&B and would stay there again. Rooms were clean and spacious, the hosts friendly to talk to and informative about the Sligo area which is just minutes away, and delicious Irish breakfasts each morning. The pub downstairs is quiet and convenient to slip down and have a pint in the evening after a day seeing the different sights of Ireland!

I've just spent a wonderful weekend in the family run B&B of the O'Grady family in the very picturesque village of Coolaney, Co. Sligo. Jerry and Anne were great hosts who could not be more welcoming. The room was very comfortable and clean with a spacious double-bed and en suite shower. I enjoyed a few pints and good conversation in the bar which is attached to the B&B along with the family shop. Jerry and his mother provided great customer service tending the bar. Anne cooked up a delicious breakfast with a choice of cereal each morning and always greeted her guests at the table with a friendly word. I found the peace and quiet of the village very conducive to a good night's sleep. It might perhaps be a little too far off the beaten track for some people and the bus service is somewhat irregular, but a very friendly local taxi-man called Paddy provided an excellent service to and from Sligo at a reasonable price. The town was the host of the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann(the world renowned celebration of Irish culture) for 2014 and I experienced this wonderful event over the course of Saturday and Sunday(August 16th and 17th). Overall I would recommend this B&B to anyone hoping to spend some holiday time in Co. Sligo without reservation.
