A rich mix! A taste triumph! A food lovers’ paradise! Welcome to Sligo Food Trail!


Sligo Food Trail treats your palate to an abundance of culinary treasures. You can map your own route to choose the cuisine that you love best. Welcome to foodie heaven!

What makes Sligo such a fantastic foodie destination is the culture that goes hand in hand with your food experience! Producers and Food Trail members take pride in giving you fresh, local, healthy, (and very often) organic food that nourishes your body while the scenery nurtures your soul. 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, the salmon rivers, and the mighty Atlantic Ocean! Sligo’s premiere location on the Wild Atlantic Way means you can enjoy freshly-caught fish in any local restaurant. Alternatively, indulge your taste buds on Knocknarea honey, wild Mullaghmore lobster, Lissadell oysters, and fresh eggs from the foot of Benbulben Mountain. Whatever your food preference, Sligo Food Trail surpasses your expectations!
