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.

    A visit to this beautiful, historical house is a must for fans of Irish history. Paul was a great tour guide, lively and personable. The tour itself however was perhaps a little rushed. The numbers on the tour were also quite large - I would suggest too large. It's also a pity that the house isn't in state ownership - as it's privately owned, the entire upstairs is off-limits.

    The coach house has been turned into tea rooms, and although the space itself looks pretty, on a cold, wet and windy July day, the high ceilings and bare walls meant it was cold and uncomfortable to spend a few hours in before our tour started. There were also limited refreshments available - just a couple of traybakes, and tea and coffee.

    The most friendly, informative and useful heritage center visited in our 3 week travels through 6 counties. Padraig was a delight....bright, helpful and helped us so much with our ancestor search. I would highly recommend anyone who is visiting the Sligo area to search for their Irish roots to stop by this heritage center.

    A fabulous market with a great selection of stalls, definitely well worth a visit. It’s great for home made baking and lovely hand made crafts. I particularly liked the stall that had a great selection of crocheted items.

    I was in Sligo for one month, the first week I was there I visited the Model and I found it fascinating. Recently they opened two other exhibitions and of course I had to go back and see them so I visited The Model one more time. The two new exhibitions are amazing and the cafè there is lovely. The staff is polite and very helpful. The building is completely accessible, with automated doors, a lift and corridors wide enough for wheelchairs.

    Visiting from out of country and saw tickets available for traditional Irish music concert. Bought tickets online easily. Website very good.
    The theatre itself is very welcoming and has a welcoming quality about it. Staff are friendly and helpful. Theatre itself is very cozy and it feels like you are with close friends seeing a show together.

    Really enjoyed our experience.

    While I wouldn't describe it as a turn-of-the-century gem, it certainly pleases the eye. The presbytery building with the statue of the bishop and a gabled window is very well detailed. The interiors of the church are quite dark, due to quite small windows located mostly up in the main nave. Very interesting coloured mosaic floors.

    The museum was setting up for an exhibition so only 1 room was accessible with 24 pictures from the collection but it was free due to the limitations. Nevertheless, it was worth seeing.

    My daughter and I strolled in and tried on some hats, initially for fun but I tried a beautiful Italian trilby style hat and I had to buy it, it’s hardly left my head since. The interaction with the staff was great, we initially wanted to browse on our own but when deciding to buy the fantastic staff explained the product and we went through a few options before committing. I have bought a jacket there 15 years ago which is still in perfect condition, the quality of the products there is very high and made to last.

    I spent a good hour here and learned a lot more about WB Yeats. There was a great deal of Yeats memorabilia around the place. The on duty staff, Yeats enthusiasts as well were really helpful explaining things I was unclear about. This was a good use of €5 and I hope this place continues to develop as it helps us to come to grips with Yeats’s life and times.

    This church is built of dark grey stone that when wet gets even darker. So it is not one of the more beautiful cathedrals but nonetheless is impressive.

    I went to the first session of the Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership 'Skate for your Gear' last night. I was terrified at first, but It was brilliant! Neville was so good, kind and patient with us all. He explained everything and guided us safely through our first tentative steps. I cant wait to go back next week :) Thanks so much Neville.
