Top Five Outdoor Dining Sligo

Sligo is home to many great restaurants, but there’s nothing quite like enjoying a meal outdoors on a warm summer day. Here are five of the best outdoor dining spots in Sligo.

Stoked Strandhill

If you haven’t watched the sunset from the terrace in Stoked you are missing out. Not only is the food sensational here, but the ambiance and customer service is top notch too. The views look out over the Atlantic and are best observed from the counter seating around the edge – especially if you’re in a small group. There is also a cover in case of rain. Soak it up and enjoy.



Located behind The Strand bar is an array of food vans serving great fare. A more relaxed dining vibe, there are outdoor benches to sit at while you enjoy your chosen dinner. From here, you can watch the sufers hit the waves. Choice includes, Firedough Pizza, Tosta and Mammy Johnston’s Treat Van.

Eala Bhan

Situated right along the Garavogue River, fine dining restaurant Eala Bhán is always bustling. The ambiance of the Town is lovely in the summer evenings, especially along the river. People watching with an ice cold glass of white at it’s best.

The Driftwood is beautiful inside and out. Whitewashed wood and leather inside but outside you have views to the ocean and Knocknarea. It’s truly lovely. With an array of fresh seafood and local meats, the food matches the view.
