This became our pub of choice during our week stay in Sligo recently. Not only was the Guinness and Atmosphere brilliant, but the choice of bars and music on a Friday and Satuday night was excellent.
We also visited on a Bank Holiday Monday, and the group that were playing were one of the best bands i'd ever seen in a pub, the place was rocking, kicking out time around 1am was also a positive.
For a great pub/bar/music/food experience i couldn't recommend this highly enough.

I recently visited Mc Garrigles for lunch again, haven't been for a while and have to say standards have been well maintained since my last visit. The food was excellent, house wine served by the glass was well chilled and delicious. Food and drink was not over-priced and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Staff were friendly and accommodating. If all restaurants/pubs could get these 3 simple things right - they will never have a problem attracting customers - well done and keep up the good work.

McGarrigles is one of Sligo's trendiest and well-known pubs. I love the nightlife there, however, it is actually my favourite place for a good healthy lunch whenever I am in Sligo. The lunch menu is full of tasty options, from a small bites to a proper lunch, and the specials are always changing but the price remains reasonable. You can get local seafoods, game or poutry, mouthwatering salads and soups, usually with an inventive twist. As a surfer I try and avoid over-produced or fast foods and the food in McGarrigals is always wholesome. It is a real change from the usually pub grub you get in Ireland. It is nice to see a Sligo establishment focus on good food as well as great nights of music and craic. The staff are great, there is never a problem with the service and there is a nice clientele along with a warm fire, perfect for visitors and regulars alike. The pub serves a pint of stout that is cool and creamy and it is a mecca for visiting musicians. Plus, some of the hottest Sligo bands have evolved from the lively music scene in this main street pub: from the funky grooves of Sunday M.A.S.S. to the soulful bluegrass of Rackhouse Pilfer. One thing is for sure: There is a lot of Sligo pride in Tricky's fine establishment.

Fabulous atmosphere. Tiny venue that was rammed to the max on Easter Monday when a great live band (blue grass music) were playing. The barman in our hotel recommended the bar when we asked for a place to go to listen to some live Irish music. We were very pleased to be directed there.

Today I visited McGarrigles for about the fifth time, it is on O'Connell street in the centre of Sligo. It is a warm and friendly pub with a mixed crowd in dining, young trendy arty slightly to old to be student types, business people on lunch breaks, young couples and older foggies like wife and I. Nice fire and a good welcome from the Danish barmaid (yes really).

My wife revisited the beetroot salad to her sheer delight and I had the special, steak sandwich. The steak in a sandwich can often be of a lower quality so you can imagine my delight when my pink as ordered meat was soft, sweet and succulent beyond my highest expectations. The manager (possibly owner) told me they source it locally from three brothers-a beef farmer, an abattoir owner and a butcher-so the staff practically went to school with the beef, absolutely the best steak sandwich anywhere.

The Guinness was good (Danish lass had to be educated as to what a Weiss Beir is not matter)
the service is prompt and pleasant and it is a most relaxing place to lunch, get there early as it is popular and deservedly so.

Only drawback, young families with toddlers goin 'Woo woo' and babies going 'Wa Wa' I had to negotiate three, yes THREE buggies to get to the door, it's a pub for fecksake! That apart it's a great place and the food is just wonderful.
