On the Sligo Food Trail we’ve got plenty on offer for little ones at Christmas. It’s lovely to take time out leading up to Christmas Day and spend it with the little people who make the magic of Christmas come alive.

Time out while shopping
Christmas shopping can be tough going on all of us – but twice as tough when you’re just being towed along behind an adult. How about taking a little break to recharge the batteries?

Afternoon tea fit for a princess
Cawley’s Hotel in Tubbercurry have a fabulous wind down option for shoppers – it’s Afternoon Tea with a Festive Twist. It’s available all through December and a nice note is the ‘Princess’ option where the smaller guests can enjoy hot chocolate rather than tea or bubbles.  They can even try a non alcoholic mocktail which looks just like a grownups drink! Perfect for all the family.

To market to market
Take the kids along to one of the lovely Christmas markets taking place in Sligo this year. You’ll love the atmosphere and the entertainment – and you’ll keep your money local too! Read all about them here.

A chocolate favour
Le Fournil have the most incredible range of chocolate favours – everything from a Christmas bauble to a stiletto. Children of every age are going to love these!

A dozen winning winter warmers
Try one of these wonderful hot chocolatey drinks – they taste so good you’ll think you’re on the ski slopes!

Baking cookies for Santa
Call into Black Sheep Bakery at the Strandhill Market and buy your ready-to-go Cookie Dough so you can bake fresh cookies on Christmas Eve for Santa with minimum fuss. Tell Sarah we sent you! Check for market dates here.
