We arrived in Sligo on Dublin on Sunday 21st August for a four day walking holiday. It was my wife's birthday so something special was required for dinner. I had read about Eala Bhan on Tripadvisor and booked in for an 'a la carte dinner' at 7.00pm. Living in south county Dublin we have lots of good restaurants locally so... More

Great food, but unfortunately spoiled by the loud background music played. The waitresses are helpful & attentive. The waitress with the heavy rimmed glasses & blond hair was stunning, & went out of her way to be gorgeous

The restaurant was very busy and noisy and the tables packed in tightly. We thought that the food and service were underwhelming and not at all memorable. Given the excellent reviews on tripadvisor, we had expected something much better and were somewhat disappointed.

Just returned from a wonderful evening in this excellent restaurant. Knowing how generous the portions are, we opted for main course and dessert only. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the accompaniments also perfectly cooked and delicious. Our cousin's seabass was first class and the bed of rice was very tasty. We had the trio of desserts and each... More

Eala Bhan means 'White Swan' in Irish, so as expected there was a definite poetical feel to the place.This restaurant is nicely situated in Sligo town, along by the river. On the fine evening there were charming red tables and chairs across the road at the riverside. The décor is very nice - cool and calm colours with quotations from... More

Was a bit concerned about going here as we have been to their sister restaurant in Strandhill a number of times (Tra Ban) and not been impressed. But the food was good, the service was good and the prices were about right. Definitely try their Black & White Pudding Lasagne.....very delicious! The only issue was the heat in the place.....needs... More

Dined here as a couple on a Saturday evening. Restaurant was buzzing when we arrived at 7pm. We were told that our table needed to be vacated by 8.15pm. I felt we should have been informed of this when we booked and not when we were seated at the table. The food and service in this restaurant was fantastic. Starters... More

I have eaten in Eala Bhan many times for different occasions, birthdays, family & friend catch ups, Christmas etc. The food & service is excellent. In particular the early bird menu is amazing & extremely good value. Absolutely worth making a booking for ,which I would advise to avoid disappointment as it runs from 5pm-6.20pm. There is something to please... More
