Fodor's Review

Part of the social fabric of Sligo since it opened more than 150 years ago, Hargadons Bar preserves its unique historic character and local chef-owner Joe Grogan maintains high standards in a much-loved institution. Wood paneling, cozy snugs (small booths) for private powwows, marble-top counters, and little glass doors on hinges make this place especially conducive to that intangible Irish element, the craic. Check out the walls, covered with historical black-and-white

photos as well as fading invoices from the bar's early days. Hearty food at great prices is served at lunchtime, and the evening dinner menu (4–9 pm), featuring oysters, mussels, burgers, steak sandwiches or chicken wings, lists local suppliers. The bar specializes in Irish craft beers with Shandon Stout and Eight Degrees among a wide selection. On Friday night musicians often hold center stage with a range of country-rock, pop, folk, and Irish traditional. Walk through the bar and in separate premises at the back you will find the well-stocked Hargadons Wine Shop in Johnston Court.
