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 visited this morning and are regulars and local to Nickies.The food was good as per usual.We enjoy lunch there. It was more than obvious that the manager was on a well deserved break. We found the staff unfriendly, irritable, and totally inefficient. And yes we do understand and allow for Covid working. However, once we were served our lunch the waitress never came near us again. One of us got up and had to re enter the building to order coffees and a dessert.He was snapped at for coming inside. So we waited politely and dare not return inside. We were patient as we thought maybe they were extra busy .We tried to get her attention when she popped outside but also wanted to be fair.However the coffees and apple pie never arrived. So after 30 minutes we decided to give up and go inside yet again to pay. We were greeted by a very abrupt lady who asked what we had to eat and when informed the apple pie and coffees never arrived she shrugged her shoulders and said "we dont serve apple pie". No apology or explanation as to why one would take an order for it if they didnt serve it. I felt sorry for the owner who is depending on all 3 staff in her absence .They really gave the impression they didnt want to be there. I guess the sunshine and location dont help when your working on such a beautiful day. I'd be giving all 3 of them a day off next Sunday if I was their manager. 🤣

This is our first summer holidaying with our dog so our new priority is to find places which will allow her to stay with us while we eat . Anyplace we have come across with outside seating accommodates us . Nickie’s has three or four highly sought after tables suitable for 2 or 3 under canopies on the foot path so very busy but also buzzy and atmospheric Very nice porridge Right in the middle of town and by the harbour so cool views

On many visits to Schull over the years, Nickies is my go-to place for my morning coffee and is also a great place for a light lunch, can recommend the sausage rolls and the veggie wraps amongst other items. But what makes the place is the staff, friendly, chatty, obliging and still recognise you behind a mask in these difficult COVID times. It is hard work for them but they still manage to connect with their customers despite COVID restrictions. Always a pleasure.

There are not many places to get breakfast/brunch along the south west Irish Coast in mid winter. We drove over from Crookhaven on the advice of locals and were very glad that we did. A warm respite in a cheery atmosphere was followed by very tasty Irish breakfast fare. Prices are very reasonable and the service superb. You look out the big windows to the ocean and the sun pours in. Outstanding!

Last sunday,rain lashing down we got an outside seat under the shade, ordered delicious cappuchinos and the most lovely bagels with cream cheese. Sat and watched the world go by. Our waitress was going to university in Galway and was worried about getting accommodation..we hope she got sorted. A really lovely coffee shop.

The club sandwich was delicious, however the cleanliness & hygiene needs much improvement. Sat at a table, staff removed previous customers dishes, etc, then served our food without wiping/sanitising it. Staff members cleaning plates, touching leftovers & then serving fresh food, with no hand washing/sanitising in between. Owner removed dirty dishes from one table & left them at another occupied table. Used glass water jars, emptied & put into fridge, again with no washing in between. No one seems to be assigned any one particular job, everyone busy doing everything, which lacks any basic hygiene. Very obvious if you sit back and observe.

Another lovely trip to Nickies in schull, warm friendly staff, at a lovely location in the heart of Schull. Myself and my young child are frequent visitors. We are always met with a great welcome and the staff has managed the trials and tribulations of a young child (including smashing a glass across the restaurant) with ease. The coffee is top notch, the food is all local and fresh with very generous portions. Cake selection is brilliant and changes frequently. Highly recommended.

Ok, this cafe-deli in Schull is worth detouring for. Outstanding approach to simple food. The Club Sandwich is world class. We travelled 35 mins to pick up some Quiche for dinner and could not believe there was a choice of 3 types. Delicious.

Terrific local cafe with delicious home cooked food. Savoury quiche particularly nice and the cakes are too tempting to resist. Lovely staff enhance the experience and an outdoor table in the sun make for the perfect summer lunch venue!

The best spot around for coffee and cake (love the lemon meringue!). Always welcomed, the staff are so kind and bring cool water for the dogs when we sit outside. Love the lunch menu, the falafel wrap is heavenly 😊 Will be back time and time again!

We stopped here last week for lunch. It was a beautiful sunny day and there was lots of outside seating. We both had lovely quiche with a side salad and coffee. Lovely smiling waitress. Great car park across the road and a fabulous view of the sea with little boats on the bay. We were very happy with everything ❤.

Dropped in for lunch reluctantly, having had a poor breakfast experience here last year. However, lunch was very enjoyable. We had the chicken wrap and the club sandwich, tea, and coffee. Staff were attentive. Will definitely go back.
