What makes Sligo such a fantastic foodie destination is the culture that goes hand in hand with your food experience! Food Trail members take pride in giving you fresh, local, healthy, and (where possible) organic food that nourishes your body while the scenery nurtures your soul. Artisan foods–such as cheeses, chutneys and honey–are plentiful at farmers’ markets and festivals, so you can enjoy a picnic with your loved ones while immersing yourself in the countryside.
As you drive through Sligo, you’ll witness the outstanding landscape which yields the fresh ingredients that create its exceptional cuisine: the lush green fields, the majestic mountains, the charming farms and the mighty Atlantic Ocean! Indulge your taste buds on Knocknarea honey, wild Mullaghmore lobster, Lissadell oysters, and fresh eggs from the iconic Benbulben Mountain.
These are just your appetisers! Throughout Sligo, food producers, restaurants, cafés, gastro pubs, brewers, and farmers’ markets have combined their talents to give you one of the most sensational food experiences in Ireland: the Sligo Food Trail. You can weave your own path, select your favourite delicacies, taste a locally-produced beverage and make your own special memories.
