Fodor's Review

Cosmopolitan modernists will love this funky, six-story riverside hotel—it elevates accommodations in Sligo to a brash new level: just take a look at the towering exterior, which has been designed to resemble a ship docked at the harbor. Inside, each of the floors has an alternating color scheme that may not be to everyone's taste: three floors bright orange, three floors lime green (with color-coordinated linens), and in the corridors a swirling, gaudy carpet design

that some find a little disconcerting. During 2013 public areas were refurbished and a more sedate color scheme was introduced in the lobby and café-bar. Four executive suites were also redecorated. Candlelit meals in the stylish Kitchen restaurant include spicy Toulouse sausages and Thai chicken curry. Some of the hotel's early sparkle may have worn off a little but it's still worth a visit to breathe in the cutting-edge architecture and enhance your color senses.
