Watch this excellent short video that showcases the new Sligo Food Trail:
Sligo’s premiere location on the Wild Atlantic Way means you can enjoy freshly-caught fish in every local restaurant. Alternatively, indulge your taste buds on Knocknarea Honey, wild Mullaghmore Lobster, Lissadell Oysters and fresh free-range eggs from the foot of Benbulben Mountain.
Whether your touring the Wild Atlantic Way from Cork to Donegal or just getting away for a day or two, you'll discover that as you drive through County Sligo you’ll witness an outstanding landscape which yields the fresh ingredients that create its exceptional cuisine: the lush green fields under the majestic mountains, the working farms, the rivers, the salmon and the mighty Atlantic Ocean!
Take some time out to stop, discover the people and the places and experience some of the great food and food-connected excursions, day-trips, classes and fun things to do that the new Sligo Food Trail has to offer all over the county!
