No doubt, Fabio's ice cream are the beat in the country. Hand made and a good selection of flavors, also dairy free and other free type...plus good coffee. Fabio's is my number one a must visit place in Sligo town.

I love this little shop, cant walk past without looking in and checking on the new flavours. The pistachio is a personal favourite of mine. Can seem a little pricey but worth it.

Elegant ice cream - strawberry had a most intense flavour liked that it was not too sweet and thoroughly enjoyed my treat of the week!

Becoming an addict! After talking to Fabio himself, it's clear the man is an expert with integrity and pride in his work . I've been a good few times now, and every ice cream I tried has been yum! This ice-cream place is tiny, but very friendly and chilled (literally).

I find tesco soft scoop has more vanilla taste than Fabios vanilla. It's just not cutting it for me. It needs more cream, more fat and more sugar. Although it was nicely presented. E4.50 for 3 scoops a bit pricey. It's Sligo.

This is one of my most favourite places in Sligo to visit. We travel over an hour to reach Sligo and Fabio's is the highlight. The mascapone, fig and white chocolate is my favourite. I had two scoops in a cone. The owner said it was a serious icecream. He recognised us from one of our other visits here. He... More

Fabulously tasty Artisan Ice cream and coffee, simply and expertly served in little diner style place near the river. Ice cream doesn't come better than this
