How To Get There
By car from the East, West, South: Take the N4 to Sligo town. Continue through the roundabout. On entering the relief road take the second turn right to Sligo town (note: this turn is the one before crossing Hughes Bridge and the N15). This turn leads to Lord Edward Street, continue along onto Wine Street. The hotel is on the left-hand side on Hyde Bridge.
The building and décor strive so hard to be cool and hip, and succeed. It's such a pity then that the breakfast is limited to the so-called traditional Irish and even then doesn't rise above the average hotel version of that fare. Could do better.
Brilliant stay at the Glasshouse, as usual. Room spacious with everything you'd need as well as a fantastic view of the river. Food in the bar was excellent. Breakfast was amazing with a fantastic selection. Can't wait to come back.
5 out of 5
