Stayed at the Great Southern for two nights in Sept 2016 when in Sligo for a wedding. Although the room was a bit dated it was very spacious with a double and single bed in it. Bathroom could have done with a bit of modernising but it was functional (even the wobbly toilet). It has Wifi which was very reliable.... More

This hotel was perfectly fine for the night we stayed. However, it was not as expected. Our room was incredibly small, with centrally controlled heating. There was a smell of pipes in the bathroom - although this gradually improved throughout our stay. We ate in the bar and the service was quite poor. The bar staff chatted amongst themselves while...

We had lunch in this hotel recently and were disappointed. We arrived at 12.30 and the place was very quiet but service was extremely slow. The food was not hot - there was quantity but not great quality. The hotel is convenient to the centre of town and there is plenty of parking but I would not return.

Following our 70 mile cycle, we arrived at 3.30.pm. The secure location for our bikes was ready as promised, our 12 rooms were ready for us and I must say they were first class. Our deal included an evening meal which was served promptly with no complaints from any of our group. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

Stayed here when passing through, very dated needed some overdue love and attention as could be lovely, desperate need of a refurbishment, be careful of the rate you pay! Good location to town centre.

Not having a car or electric picnic tickets I searched Ireland for fun places to go that could be accessed by rail. This hotel popped up in Sligo as right next to the railway station and Sligo looked like a grand place to visit. I was not disappointed by either expectations. The hotel is literally a hop skip and jump... More

My parents stayed here recently and ended up in a dark and pretty horrible room. They asked to move on the first night of their 3 night stay, but were told no rooms were available. This wasn't a cheap deal either. I have suggested they stay at the Glasshouse from now on. The staff in the dining room were pleasant... More
