Sligo is home to the first hotel in Ireland with a sensory room. The Clayton Hotel have little haven away from the hustle and bustle of the busy hotel. The Sensory room is specially designed for children and adults with additional needs and provides a positive, calming, effect. I’m told it can also be used by members of the Club Vitae leisure centre and also hired out for use by members of the public. You can find out more about the room here.
Cordner’s Shoes in Sligo town have just recently opened a sensory room which is the first of its kind in Ireland. It is a specially designed room which comprises of a range of stimuli to help set the tone for a more calming shoe fitting experience. You can contact Cordners Sligo on 071-9143267 if you have any queries.
