If you’re looking for something special to do this Sunday for your mammy, read on. Here are top 5 picks for Mother’s Day ideas in Sligo, no matter your budget or what your mum enjoys, there’s something for everyone in Sligo.

1. Afternoon Tea 

Eala Bhan Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is a great option for Mother’s Day. No need to cook, just sit back and enjoy a beautiful array of tea, cake and sandwiches. There are plenty of great options in Sligo for afternoon tea: a decadent delight at Eala Bhán, a treat in Tubbercurry at Cawley’s Hotel… and that’s not all. Read our post on afternoon tea here in Sligo for more information.

2. Spa day

There’s nothing quite like a spa day! Whether it’s a seaweed bath, facial or back massage, Sligo has lots of beautiful spas for a relaxing afternoon. Voya in Strandhill offer luxurious seaweed baths by the sea – why not bring her for a seaweed bath, then lunch at Shells and a stroll along the beach? Check out our post on Sligo spas here.

3. Walk

Clear off the cobwebs and go for a refreshing walk. Ok, it may not be everyone’s idea of a Mother’s Day, but think about it this way – you can go for a lovely lunch somewhere afterwards! Here‘s a list of fabulous scenic walks in Sligo.

4. Staycation

If you and your mum want a change of scenery, there are lots of lovely homes-away-from-home in Sligo. From hotels to B&Bs and hostels, there’s loads of choice for a night away. Check here for a list of places to stay in Sligo. Or, if you fancy treating your mum to breakfast in bed, why not pick up some fresh baked bread and pastries from Le Fournil, and some Hooked sausages for a really special treat? We’re lucky in Sligo to have so many fantastic food businesses to make a cracking breakfast/brunch in bed.

5. Drinks

If your mum is more young at heart, a few drinks might hit the spot! There are some great pubs and cocktail spots in Sligo. Lillies and The Blind Tiger do amazing cocktails, or if you want a more relaxed tipple The Swagman have great craft beers (and excellent food too!)
