I wandered into McGarrigles looking for an Irish pub experience on a cold, rainy Sligo evening in December. I was welcomed by a nice Irish Whiskey, along with a quartet of musicians playing lovely Irish fold tunes. A definate stop along the pub crawl in Sligo!

I went to this pub last night with the hopes of eating some of the great food I have read about. We were told they do not serve food. After eating somewhere else, we did go back and have a couple pints of Guinness as we did enjoy the atmosphere. Very cozy and were playing goo music. Seems we missed... More

We stopped in because we had heard there was going to be some music. Several hours later, we left, having heard amazing music from an ever-changing array of locals who came out to play (for themselves, not for us) and who clearly were having a terrific time. The musicians treated each other and the music with great respect, even shushing... More

We called in to this place because of the rating on Tripadvisor. The place is quirky and rather old-fashioned - not very large but right on the main street. We wanted to see what it might be like to eat there. We realised that food is only served through the day, not in the evening, i.e., dinner. We were served... More

This bar was recommended to us and a visit here much anticipated for drinks and food. What a let down. A pint of Guinness and a mediocre glass of white wine was 10.40 Euro - ouch. The chef had gone on holiday to the Philippines so no food. A bleak fire on a cold night, other people came in an... More

Went on a Monday night expecting things to be quite quiet but it was packed to the rafters! There was live music and the band were excellent. Great atmosphere about the place too.
