The guys from Gastro Gays Food and travel blog visited us in Sligo for a little TASTE OF SLIGO and shared a lovely review:

“Sligo is unspoilt… it’s pure wildness… and Hooked (on Sligo Food) – to give it its full title – is all about celebrating everything that Sligo has to offer and the wealth of food producers we have in this part of Ireland,” Anthony Gray tells us as we pull up chairs in the central table of his restaurant in the Abbey Quarter of Sligo City. An established restaurateur, with Eala Bhán up the road as his other restaurant, Anthony has an infectious enthusiasm for running restaurants and an undying love for his home county paired with the utmost commitment and dedication to the local food and drink suppliers.

Sligo is getting a reputation for itself of late, if you haven’t noticed, climbing sharply in everyone’s estimations as a bonafide food destination in Ireland. And why wouldn’t it be? Take one quick glance under the surface of this North West precinct of the island and you’ll see that Sligo is quietly a slice of scorching hot property. The Wild Atlantic Way has opened up the western seaboard of our island, creating one of the world’s most popular tourism routes, and food tourism is an integral part of the Wild Atlantic Way experience. 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”
