We stopped into McGarrigle's for the music and the warmth of a peat fire. We found both and some good company and a nice pint to top it all off.

All around great time at Tricky's! Great music venue at a very central location. Friendly staff. Regular music sessions in the downstairs area (saw some amazing trad sessions in the packed bar). Space upstairs for incredible late night gigs. Tricky knows the Sligo music scene, so it's a great place to go hear live music!

Popped in for a drink. Trad session playing, very lively and a lot of locals which is always a good sign. Great small pub, limited options of drink but I think they were waiting on a huge delivery for the weekend!!!

Live music, tasty pints, great crowd and great craic. Located in the town centre opposite the Italian district. Seems to be a bar for the regulars.

A must visit on a Sunday if you are into your music. We caught the tail end of a trad session which runs on a Sunday afternoon/evening and we stayed for the next band...Sunday Mass. What a treat it was! Top class musicians 'jamming' playing unreal tunes. We will definitely return!
