We called in here on Monday afternoon for an ice cream but we were disappointed, there was very little ice cream to choose from maybe they sold it all at the weekend

Fabio is always happy to chat and explain and answer questions, and his ice cream is among the best ever. Shame there's not more space to sit and enjoy...

Fabio's ice-cream is the REAL Italian ice-cream. Produced on the premises and served by Fabio who is a warm friendly character. You are assured of no artificial colourings or flavourings, only fresh dairy, fruit, and quality ingredients in his ice-cream. Interestingly he also offers gluten/nut/fat/egg/dairy-free alternatives. The sorbets were ever so tempting looking as well. We tried several ice-cream flavours... More

Absolutely delicious ice cream - the mint was the nicest I've ever had! I also ordered the focaccia sandwich to go and it went down extremely well I've been dreaming about one ever since! I wish this quaint little shop the best in business as its a little gem hidden in Sligo town

My wife and I called in to try this out, having heard great things. We were not disappointed. I tried the Bull's Blood flavour (dark chocolate, orange and spices) with a scoop of Pistachio. Fantastic! My wife opted for Berry Mix with Cherries and Cream. I don't like cherry flavour usually, but this was so refreshing, I was hoping she... More

Flavours burst onto your tongue. No synthetic chemicals or fats just pure unadulterated old fashioned ice cream.
