Attractions in Sligo


In this blog article we want to highlight 4 Hen and Stag attractions in Sligo town and its surrounding areas.  Since gone live with our brand new website, we soon discovered there are far more Hen and Stag attractions than we first thought.  Here are just 4 reasons on why you



While building our brand new website we soon discovered that Sligo had so many unique Hen and Stag suppliers that offered many unique Hen and Stag packages,  and that Sligo was certainly not short of Hen and Stag party ideas.  We discovered so many we sent some of our team to discover what some of these activities were all about.  

Lough Gill Brewery Tour  The lough gill brewery tour is another one of those must see attractions while on your Hen or Stag tour of Sligo. The Lough Gill Brewery is the first brewery to be located in Sligo Town in over 100 years since Foley’s Brewery ceased brewing on the site of what is today the Velvet Rooms building. Located in the Heart of Sligo.  Lough Gill Brewery strives to think outside the box and brew complex high quality speciality brews. During the tour you get to see how some of the branded beers are made and you will also have a time for tasting ( which is always important )

Deep Sea Fishing  Sligo Bay holds good varied fishing grounds from hard reefs to rocks and sandbanks for world class inshore, offshore, light gear and game angling. Targeted game fishing for sea trout, big skate, tope, blue shark and Giant Bluefin Tuna is available whilst in season. This activity is brought to us by Sligo Boat Charters based in Rosses point, along with the Deep Sea Fishing activity, they also have other to choose from.  This gives guests and visitors a chance to explore a beautiful area of Sligo town while doing a little bit of fishing.

The Garavogue is without doubt Sligo’s No 1 Party destination, with Live Music and Djs 7 nights a week. The Garavogue has recently gone through a refurbishment where they have added 2 more bars and more seating to cater for all party bookings comfortably. Hen, Stags and party goers from all over Ireland book into Sligo’s best party venue every week, which always creates an unforgettable atmosphere every weekend.
