What People are Saying

A food lovers dream

"The culinary delights offered by the Taste of Sligo Food Trail makes it a foodie's dream. There’s something very satisfying about eating a delicious meal made from quality and fresh ingredients while supporting local businesses"

Aakanksha Surve from Irish Daily Mirror

Sligo should be your new destination for foodie holidays

"Every step of the way, Gray's genuine relationship with local producers is clear, and it makes the food taste that much better knowing it's been farmed, fished and made with love for the city.

At every pitstop, I savoured the samples and knowing the story behind them left a sweeter aftertaste"

Erin Lindsay, Image Magazine

“All I can say was that it was incredible!”

" I had imagined it to be the way it was but think it was even better. The quality of food and service was second to none. I loved the mix of the suppliers talking on the trail as this broke it up a little. Both Eala Bhan and Hooked looked superb, the food was delicious and the Oyster Experience was superb.

Paula, Radisson Blu Hotel

"Sligo is unspoilt… it’s pure wildness"

"Visitors are in for a treat as they dine along the western coast in Ireland, especially at places like Hooked – which has just been announced as the recipient of the Bord Bia Restaurant of the Year 2019 in association with Georgina Campbell’s Ireland Guide"
