The Northwest Restaurants

Donegal mountain spring lamb, Glen Bay crab, Donegal Bay oysters and mussels, Lough Swilly wild salmon, Enniscrone lobster, freshly baked scones, crusty homemade brown bread, and Guinness cake are just some of the delicious reasons why you will not go hungry traveling through the Northwest. Sligo town has established itself as a sort of last stop for food lovers, with a number of tempting shops

promoting local produce that are well worth a visit. In 2012 an Italian Quarter was established in Sligo, and its cluster of restaurants and cafés serving up well-above-average food in memorable settings has created an epicurean vibe. It's even come up with its own culinary-and-arts festival, Sligo Food and Cultural Festival, held each May, and brimful of activities. You're likely to find the finest food at the higher-quality country houses, where chefs elegantly prepare local meat, fish, and produce in a hybrid Irish-French haute cuisine. In Donegal town, be sure to ask for what are officially Europe’s top sausages, made by McGettigan’s butchers. McGettigan’s hickory-and-maple pork sausage won the 2012 European Championship title for sausage making, while the pork, curry, and banana and mango sausages picked up a Grand Prix of Excellence award.
