If you get to Sligo you just have to try it. Beautiful Ice Creams and the staff are really friendly. Not to be missed.

“A yummy treat for mummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Paid a return visit to Fabios at the weekend with my mother and children and we all had the most delicious ice-creams, coffees and hot chocolates there as part of a Mother's Day treat. Fabios ice-cream is still, I am happy to report, totally delicious .....and we had to check out quite a few flavours ....just to make sure ;-)

Fabio and his lovely trainee assistant were very friendly and we really enjoyed our time there chatting with them.

Special flavour of the day was Spanish Custard, Mum loved her Jamacian Chocolate flavour (must have been the rum Mum!) but my favourite is Fabios Lemon....it's just so lemony and not that sweet, it reminded me of happy days smelling Lemons in Sorrento :-)

Small place but a good few people dropping in for takeaway coffees and ice-creams. If you are in Sligo you really should try Fabios ice-cream.

“Best Icecream Gelato in Sligo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Fabio is a great character, always friendly and fun. He loves what he does and it shows in his icecream. Made on the premises, all delicious, unusual flavours. I have to ration myself or I'd be as big as a barrell
