Outdoor Parties in Sligo

Party Smores

Outdoor parties are always a blast. You get to enjoy the fresh air, space and freedom of an outside event with your friends or family members. Plus there’s no such thing as bad weather (mostly ;0) – just wear waterproofs so you can get muddy together. See below for some ideas this autumn and winter in Sligo.

  • Smores and walks in the woods. Wrap up warm, bring a disposable bbq and feed the troops with toasted marshmallows. Bring torches if you go at dusk for extra atmosphere. Please leave no trace.
  • The best outdoor children’s party we ever went to was in The Glen. The hosts bought flasks of hot chocolate and arranged a treasure hunt. The kids loved it (so did the adults). Wear wellies!!
  • Arrange a surf lesson with one of the fab Surf Instructors in Strandhill. Then grab some chips from Shells Cafe or a cake from Mammy Johnson’s to eat on the Sea Front.
  • Visit Atlantic Way Alpaca Farm for a lovely experience with their Alpacas.

Indoor Party Venues

Of course, indoor children’s parties are a safe bet when it comes to weather. And with the added convenience of someone cleaning up after you there is no need for stressed parents! Here is a list of some of the best in Sligo County.

Get some craft supplies in from Hobby Shop and get the children busy making things. Like stone pets or Pom poms. Mr Price has a great selection of masks they can paint to then play make-believe with.

Pet Rocks

Have a disco! Children LOVE to dance. So block out the windows in one room, get your disco ball out and let the tunes roll. Best fun ever. Disco balls are available from Argos in Sligo.
