We left our hotel this morning under mostly cloudy skies, although a bit warmer. As we passed a gigantic limestone quarry, our tour guide, Charlie, said that most of Ireland was "a thumping clump of rock". We were warned that the roads would become bumpier because of it.
Our first stop was at the Cliffs of Moher, beautiful rocky cliffs …
On Friday, we set off for Sligo, with a few stops along the way. On our way there we had some time to kill, so we got off at the coastline. Right at the edge there was moss that was super bouncy and really fun to jump on! I thought these cliffs were much more beautiful than Cliffs of Moher, and we got to get really close. Right off the cliffs was a …

The next stop was well out of my way, but I just couldn't pass it up. I detoured along the Sligo coast to a town called Enniscrone, or Inshcronne, or Inniscrone. I saw all three, depending on which street sign or map I was looking at. A teeny-tiny little seaside village, I was headed there because it was home to one of Ireland's oldest seaweed baths. I finally found the bathhouse, which was a fantastic old, turn-of-the-century building. Kind of like ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sligo Park Hotel
Found this hotel fantastic
found this hotel fab the food was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. stayed in one of the rooms down stairs and it was brill. they had a plazma tv on the wall and the bed was fantastic stayed for 3 days and they hovered and cleaned the room every day. the walls are a bit thin as you can hear every sound but the saervice was great would def go back
Im shocked to read the good comments about this dreadful hotel.Do we not have standards anymore? it was like walking into a room in the 80's, the decor was horrible, previous occupants had left us desserts in the drawers,rubbish,old newspapers and the cleaners decided to leave them with us..god knows who they even belonged too but I was not impressed. The reception staff were the most ignorant people I've ever met and made you feel so unconfortable about asking for info, room service, checking out, checking in it was all just a horrible experience and I couldn't wait to leave. The walls were like cardboard we could hear the kids screaming in the room a few doors up, TV was practically on the floor, furniture was so outdated. I know I might sound petty but for the amount they charged I expected royal treatment. It was not at all like it was advertised on the webpage, pics are very different to what the hotel is acutally like. I was never more happy to leave this hotel and stay in another hotel up the road for half the price and we really were treated like royalty.. Please check out other hotels before just booking this, I would have preferred to have stayed in a B&B instead of the hotel that night.
This hotel annoyed me so much it was over priced and the staff were so ignorant. My room was freezing and i asked to be put into another one but the reception i got was even colder.
The food was terrible deep fried everything. There was a hen party in the room next to us on the saturday night and the noise was horrendous.
My complaints just fell on deaf ears I will never return to this wretched hotel again.
I was really amazed to see the poor ranking of The Sligo Park. We are a group of friends who travel from the UK to Sligo every year. Our party which numbers up to 13 people are all well travelled professional people and we love the hotel.
A Fine Experience
We highly recommend the Sligo Park. The hotel is in great condition in well looked after gardens. The staff are friendly and the food is good. We really had a good time in the leisure centre.
A great weekend at the Park
I recently stayed at the Sligo Park for a weekend and could not recommed the hotel highly enough - the staff are friendly and helpful to a tee and the food was excellent. The bedroom was perfect - duvets on the bed a personal favourite that does not happen in enough hotels. My wife and I enjoyed our trip and cannot say a bad word about the hotel and look forward to getting back to the Park again.
We booked to stay in the Sligo Park for a party of 4, including one child (2 yrs old) in early August, through a USA based website offering "special rate". The photographs posted on the website give the impression of a warm, modern and tastefully decorated hotel, but let me assure you the Sligo Park, in our humble opinions, was none of these things. On arrival we were met by a business-like reception crew and it was mostly downhill from there. The outside temperature was approaching 30 degrees celsius yet the room did not have air conditioning, and quite amazingly did not have an extractor fan in the rather bijou bathroom. The "family room" comprised one double bed and two singles but its overall size was definitely more suited to double, or even single occupancy. The room was very off-putting overall. The lobby was okay and restaurant served what could be described as decent food, but overall staff, particularly reception staff, were unhelpful. When settling up time came the bill was considerably in excess of what we had understood it to be, and compared with other 4 star hotels in the region it didn't really compete in terms of value for money.
The hotel is a large modern building without any character, in a not particularly attractive location. Due to the intrusion of a stairwell this was the smallest hotel room we have ever had. With just four coat hangers and two empty drawers, it was not suitable for double occupancy. The toilet seat was disgraceful, with the stops on one side missing so that it tipped over when you sat on it, and the surface was heavily pitted where something abrasive had been used to clean it.
Nice, but nasty.
This was quite a nice hotel, but I'm sorry to say that the service was the worst I have seen in many, many years. These people need a lesson on how to be nice to their residants. Extremily rude at times!
Not a bad wee stay!!!
Stayed in The Sligo Park Hotel one Saturday night in February 2005. Overall happy enough with my choice of venue. The double room we had I must say was very impressive with a huge floor to ceiling window, great colour scheme and a spotless bathroom. The hotel bar was quite busy on Saturday evening. We got breakfast delivered to our room...came on time...warm...plus everything ordered was there and more. Unfortunately we didn't have sufficient time to avail of the leisure facilities. Parking was not a problem.
