The annual Sligo Tapas Trail bringing Spanish flavours to Sligo

The annual Sligo Tapas Trail bringing Spanish flavours to Sligo
A Yeats Weekend celebration from Sligo Food Trail

Sligo Food Trail presents the Sligo Tapas Trail as part of the Yeats Weekend celebrations from 8-10th June 2017. An astounding variety of creative, tapas sized specialities will be offered along the Sligo Tapas Food Trail for just €5 per dish. Sligo’s best restaurants, gastro pubs, cafes and food providers will showcase Sligo’s finest fresh produce and culinary innovation in tapas form so everyone can try some.

Anthony Gray, Chairman of Sligo Food Trail and former President of the Restaurants Association of Ireland is an supporter and commented, “Following the success of Sligo Food Trail since its launch, the annual Sligo Tapas Trail further underlines the strength of local, traditional and organic producers of seafood, meats and vegetables in Sligo.” Anthony’s restaurant Eala Bhán is taking part in the Sligo Tapas Trail along with other Sligo Food Trail members including Le Fournil, Café Fleur, Lyons Café, Knox, Sweet Beat, Osta Café & Wine Bar, Hargadons, The Swagman and more.

Traditionally tapas were a Spanish appetiser or snack often served in bars. It has evolved into an entire sophisticated cuisine featuring both hot and cold dishes, sweet and savoury dishes. The annual Sligo Tapas Trail is a celebration of the finest fresh ingredients, many from local waters and the wild, with a distinctly Spanish twist. Last year the Sligo Tapas Trail was a huge success with locals and visitors alike. It’s expected to be just as popular this time around with more than 30 different tapas dishes on offer.
