Happy Mothers Day!
"Sheriff of Buttingham" - early onto the coach again - the seat rotation is causing a bit of a stir in the mornings now! The Elisabeth Taylor sisters made a bit of a ruckus because someone was where they thought they were meant to be sitting lol people were calling out all over the place and I tried to explain it to the …
Alice-patrick stayed here on Aug 30, 2013 during their trip titled: Throw caution to the wind-Patrick.
On the way to Sligo we drove along the Royal Canal to Mullingar. In Boyle we walked through the ruins from the 12th century Cistercian Abbey. We drove through lots of lush country side to our hotel in Sligo bay. We had the afternoon free to shop and look around Sligo.
Yesterday we drove from Dublin to Sligo on the border with Northern Ireland. We stopped off at Boyle for a photo stop of the 12th Century Cistercian Abbey ruins, then onto a town near the river Shannon for a cruise on the Shannon. Not much to see on the river but a guy on the boat played a lot of different Irish instruments which was pretty cool. …
I am getting slower and slower updating this blog. It seems that as the days go by, it gets more and more difficult to find both the time and the energy to sit down to do it - not to mention the internet connection. It was quite a relief to get out of Belfast and into the countryside. Bob told us the story of the Giant's Causeway and Finn McCool on …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Loved staying in some real nice B&Bs these past several day, but a real hotel with a king size bed. Alice struggle getting out of it this morning. Nice place, right next to Bus Station.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Sligo Southern Hotel
We stayed in 2 twin rooms for 2 nights in May 2005. Reservations had no record of our booking when I rang to confirm 7 days before travelling.
We stayed here a couple of weeks ago as we were attending a relations wedding. The food was delicious and the staff were efficient and friendly.
Our room was decorated beautifully and we had a flat screen tv! I most certainly will be returning.
Would not stay there again.
Dirty coffee cup on the sink, very high price, run down (wall paper behind the front desk torn and hanging).
Bound to be a better place in Sligo.
We stayed at the Southern for two nights due to a family wedding. I was apprehensive after reading the reviews on here and I am quite hard to please when it comes to hotels. I found the Southern really excellent. The rooms were gorgeous, decorated beautifully and very clean. The staff were great, very helpful. Our room was spacious and had a view of a little courtyard. The only criticism I would give is that on the Staurday morning we had to wait 2 hours for an iron and ironing board to be brought to us. We kept ringing reception and they were very apologetic but had lots of people waiting to use it, perhaps as it was an August Saturday and lots of wedding guests were there. The next morning it came withing 10 mins of us asking, but perhaps they could invest in a few extras!
Did not stay here but gave 1 months notice of cancellation but they still kept Eur 40.00 deposit which is outrageous for doing nothing!
Would not recommend any company that treats its customers this way
Not good value for money
Stayed in room 434 (double) which is at the back of the hotel and faces the railway line which had a few train movements throughout the night, there was also a lot of hallway noise with doors banging and the like. The room itself was okay with one very small double bed and a single bed, not much floor space to open a suitcase if all beds are occupied. The heater in this room was also broken. The room is a wifi hotspot which is charged at 10 euro an hour (and I thought 10 Australian dollars was expensive). The rate was 130 euros including breakfast, breakfast was reasonable without being spectacular. This hotel is located on the edge of the town centre. In summary this hotel was okay but when rated for value for money it can only manage 2 out of 5.
You will love it there.
The Sligo Southern is great, the new rooms in the front are fab, the staff are very effecient and welcoming. You will need to go on a diet after staying there as the food is great.
Would highly recommend this hotel for relaxing and there's a great bar across the road with live music.
It just takes 5 minutes to walk into town The last thing I will say is go there..and enjoy it.
we stay at this hotel once a year we have been since 1998 and every year has always been better that the one before. i would incurrige anyone who is thinking of staying in sligo to stay at the southern hotel u will not reget it
Five Star Southern Hotel
I stayed in the Southern Hotel for 6 nights in November 2003. All the staff from the receptionists to the bar staff, waitrses and chambermaids could not have been more proffesional or helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff of the Southern Hotel. The hotel itself is imaculate, and the food in the restaurant is a experience in itself. It also boasts a great fitness centre which the guests can avail of. I was very sad to leave the Southern Hotel.
anybody staying in Sligo, do not hessitate to book into this wonderful hotel.
