Sligo Great Southern is in a great location, just beside the railway station and 12 minute walk into the town. Bedrooms, bed and linen, fantastic. Breakfast, lovely buffet selection. Enormous foyer and lounge areas, great for coffee and people watching.

I paid €135 for a single room for one night without breakfast and so was looking forward to a bit of a treat. It was not to be. As I entered the room, I could feel the chill. I made sure the radiator was fully open as it was just luke warm - it clearly had only just come on.... More

My husband and I stayed here recently. The foyer looked lovely and on first impressions so did our room. Unfortunately there were some glitches along the way.

This family owned old royal style hotel is a very cozy and warm place to stay in Sligo with a perfect location right next to the bus station not fahr from the centre. Very nice old style room with a huge bed, stuff very friendly. Be sure to take a bus right opposite the hotel to the Strandhill beach.
