No matter how booked out Sligo is these days this hotel will always have a room for you and for good reason. Our small Irish group were there recently and dealing with the staff was like dealing with American border control. Willful, unhelpful, and downright belligerent attitudes from the top down. On the plus side there was a big group...

While the hotel and bar food was lovely, the bedroom was freezing. When we first entered the room, the cold hit us right away. It was a cold day outside and colder in the room. We checked the radiators and turned them up as high as they could go. They heated for a little while and an hour later the...

I popped in for a coffee around 5pm. A few people having drinks. I was attended to straight away. Lovely cosy bar with comfortable soft sofas. Nice relaxing background music. Nice dim lighting. Couldn't fault anything.

Had a Christmas party here with some friends, the main room was spacious and really nicely decorated. Food was tasty and well presented. The staff were very organised. The band playing that night were Rackhouse Pilfer, not your traditional Christmas type band but they rocked the place. Just a little advice for people staying though....there is no residents bar, might...

I've read some reviews about the Southern and some are unfair. It is an old hotel and must have been very impressive in its heyday as a Grand hotel. The decor is old but not shabby. The only meal we had there was the buffet breakfast which was great. My big problem and it is a big one is that...

Sligo Great Southern is in a great location, just beside the railway station and 12 minute walk into the town. Bedrooms, bed and linen, fantastic. Breakfast, lovely buffet selection. Enormous foyer and lounge areas, great for coffee and people watching.

We stayed here for one night as we were attending a function in the hotel. We were offered more favourable rates because of the function. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quite large. The hotel was somewhat old fashioned with high ceilings and elegant decor. There is a large lobby area with a real fire making it...
