Sligo Food Trail

The Sligo Food Trail is an exciting mix of producers, markets, cafes, restaurants, breweries, gastro pubs and accommodation providers who have come together to build a food tourism package for county Sligo. Through their work over the last number of years, the members have developed  the county’s food offering and continually showcase Sligo as a food destination.

The Sligo Food Trail has a range of packaged experiences which range from craft brewery tours to tastings, surfing to seaweed harvesting and exploring to jam-making. There is an experience out there to suit everyone.

Cawley’s of Tubbercurry and Wild West Adventures have joined together to create some exciting packages for you to enjoy.
