“Quintessential Irish pub - Atmosphere and Music!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2014 NEW

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!

“Food?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

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 any live bands though!

“Great vibe, nice bar staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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 the bar so that one very elderly gentleman could do a breathtakingly beautiful a cappella song. The pints were tasty and reasonably priced; the bar staff were friendly, responsive and efficient. And the overall feel of the place was very warm and inviting. I would definitely go back and would recommend it to others as a place to have a drink and, if you pick the right time, listen to some music. We did not eat there so I can't comment on the food.
