A really nice restaurant where the food was really good with excellent service - especially the dark haired lady from Lithuania, possibly the manager. She was extremely helpful and gave sound advice about the town of Sligo; where to go, what to avoid etc. The restaurant's name is a Scottish Celtic poem sent by a soldier to his love one... More

We enjoyed a great lunch here on the Friday of the recent Fleadh. The Menu appeared to be shortened somewhat to deal with the higher turnover but the food was still good. Service was quick and despite it being very busy we didnt feel rushed to move on. It was great to sit in comfort, enjoy good food and a... More

We ran into the owner (unknown to us at first). We asked a stupid question if the restaurant was any good. He said it was. He was more than right. Great food and great service.

Arrived here on a very busy Sunday night. There was a lovely welcome and the staff member went to some trouble to find a suitable table. There was reasonably priced menu for two or three courses. We opted for the two course menu which was around €20. The goat's cheese, vegetarian risotto and fish and chips were all good. (The... More

We visited Eala Bhan 3 times for dinner during the week and I have to say, the standard was up to their normal standard. It was SO busy in Sligo, thousands of visitors and Eala Bhan was no exception. There was such a buzz in there & the menu was condensed for the Fleadh period but yet you still got... More

Absolutely, totally and utterly disappointed. Booked for the Early Bird offer and secured the booking over the phone. Got to the restaurant to be told that they weren't doing the Ealrly Bird, , ratherthey were doing a Fleadh menu that consisted of exactly the same choices as the Early Bird but was €5 per head more expensive. Decided that we... More

Hi Stuart, we took your booking months in advance of the Fleadh before realising closer to the time that it would be impossible to take bookings that week. Regarding your comment about the early bird being the exact same; I can assure you it is not , it includes starters from our A La Carte and Sunday lunch menu and... More

I have being to Eala Bhan in the restaurant and thought it quite a nice place but the gourmet street stalls that were placed in water lane during the Sligo Fleadh were excellent. I went on my lunch one day just to try the gourmet burger and the service I received was second to none; there was a man there... More

This was a complete surprise. In Sligo on a big festival weekend and had no advance knowledge. Picked Eala Bhan on a whim. We were blown away. First surprise was a demitasse of amazing soup. Complimentary, served with the bread. The duck trio starter was very good. The mushroom encroute beyond good. My wife. Who is a great pastry chef... More
