Sligo. Who knew?

Sligo is the place to be for hen parties. Did you know that Sligo is now one of the most popular places to come for a hen party in Ireland?  Move over Carrick and Kilkenny, Sligo is here to stay. With our fabulous beauty spots, including Strandhill and Rosses Point Beach, and many pubs, clubs and bars all in the town centre, Sligo has something for every kind of Hen.

Let’s start with the nightlife here in Sligo, because ultimately that is the most important thing right?

Sligo has 22 bars all within a 5 minute walking distance of each other. Now that is a lot of bars to get around for the pub crawl. We also have 2 Late Bars and 2 Nightclubs.

Every night of the week, there is live music with trad bands, rock bands and DJ’s throughout the town. But the town ultimately comes to life at the weekend. On a Saturday night, you can be guaranteed to have a fantastic night out to remember, be it on a date, with friends, or with friends you just have yet to meet.

Following on from the night out, the next morning, why not visit one of our many beaches here in Sligo? Choose from Strandhill, Enniscrone Beach, Rosses Point Beach, Streedagh Strand, Mullaghmore Beach, Culleenamore and Dunmoran Strand. All of our beaches have fantastic views and most you can go for a swim in too. Strandhill or Rosses Point are just 15 minutes from Sligo Town and have excellent public transport links. Why not take a spin out to brush off the cobwebs on a Sunday morning? You can also try some water sports such as surfing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding (SUP).

The land of musicians and poets. If you are looking for something more cultured, you don’t have to go very far here in Sligo before you will find someone with a connection to one of the members of Westlife. In fact, you might even see one the members themselves, especially in the Blind Tiger. There are 2 Art Galleries, 2 theatres and lots of historical points too to come and see. After all we are the home of WB Yeats.

Last but not least, let’s talk about the many dining options we have here in Sligo. From casual eating to fine dining there is every type of cuisine here in the town centre or out further afield. We are famous for our fish here in Sligo so why not take a spin to Eithna’s by the Sea in Mullaghmore or perhaps if you’re more of a meat person, then Anderson’s Sligo is your place to go for Monster Burgers and juicy steaks cooked to your liking.

But none of that matters if there is no accommodation available, am I right? Well luckily, Sligo has plenty of room in the inn. There are 7 large hotels in Sligo that can accommodate big groups for Hen and Stag Parties. There are also many Self-catering options available to you.
So whether you’re a partier, a foody, the adventurous type or looking for something more cultured, Sligo has something for every kind of Hen Party.

5 Star Google Review:
We had the most brilliant time at my sister’s hen party in Sligo, the package the Garavogue put on was not only great value for money but first class food drink and service. A big thanks to Yasmina for all your help with everything it was enjoyed that much that one of the girls will be returning for her own hen in March. This was my first time in Sligo and definitely somewhere I will visit time and time again the people are so friendly and welcoming and just a lovely place to be.
