Aakanksha Surve from Irish Daily Mirror shared her experience of our Taste of Sligo Tours. We are delighted with her feedback!


Our foodie journey started off at the Eala Bhán Restaurant where we were greeted by Grey, a lively and ambitious character.
Much to my delight, we were presented with glasses of prossecco as he took us through the delicious treats that were in store for us that day.

Our meal started off with a hearty amuse bouche with wild garlic and celeriac served in tiny espresso cups.

We were then served light and crispy Kataifi prawn with saffron aioli nestled on top of real sea rocks.

This was followed up by duck breast served with duck pate and caramelised onions.

The duck breast was tender and cooked to perfection, but my favourite part of the dish was definitely the caramelised onions.

They were just the right kind of sweet and sticky.

Anthony then whisked us off to Hooked where we enjoyed a refreshing glass of fruity IPA from a local brewery Lough Gill and delicious fish and chips.

The charming Le Fournil Sligo, a French bakery, was next on the list with its award winning salted caramel chocolates and Hennessy truffles.

We also had the chance to sample fresh oysters at the WB’s Coffee House & Deli Bar while learning about oyster harvesting on the Wild Atlantic Way. Sligo Oyster Experience

And our last stop was a whiskey tasting event at Thomas Connolly Sligo with live trad music

“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”
