Beautiful old Irish Pub with great live Music. The Pub is bit old fashioned but just this is characteristic for Ireland and so lovely. Love to come back some day.

Very small bar with local musicians and different bands singing. I visited during a night with banjos - great craic and music! The kind of place where people know each other, come to learn how to play from each other and even if you travel alone, they'll 'adopt' you for a fun evening.

Within 5 minutes of arriving Michael was over chatting to us and giving us tips on places to go in Sligo, delighted we stumbled upon here on my birthday- was a night to remember! Small, but a great atmosphere, particularly with the live music.

I've visited Mc Garrigles on and off over the last 15years and can honestly say it's a Irish pub that hasn't really changed its identity much over that time. The staff are friendly, the drinks are good, the clientele is non pretentious, the fire is good during the winter months and the bathrooms are truly awful in every way but... More

McGarrigles is one of the best venues for impromptu live music in Sligo. On my most recent visit Quentin, (a guy with a guitar, a digeridoo, some electric drums and a ukelele) was brilliantly improvising something between nu-folk and drum and bass.
