Simply Sligo – Gift Ideas

Sligo have a great variety of shops and markets, OK so we don’t have Marks and Spencer but we do have some unique places to shop. I’ve decided to do a post of gift ideas….all of these are aimed at me to be honest! I’ve decided if I like them, some of you will.

Pancake Day in Sligo 2017

Today was a good day. It was Shrove Tuesday/pancake day so that helped. I haven’t had anything sweet for a while so today I kind of lost the run of myself.

Seedy Balls

Now before you think I’m being rude it’s a recipe 😉 I can’t think of what else to call them and that’s what they are 🙂 I was inspired by the Beltra Market Goodies on the #SligoFoodTrail last week so thought I’d have a try at these.

Flavours of the World in Sligo

Yes once again it’s all about food! Saturday I paid a visit to Beltra Country Market. It’s one of my favourite markets in Sligo – with such a friendly atmosphere – and of course Marguerite’s Famous Beetroot Burgers!

Sligo Food Trail Harvest Feast

Now and again I’m lucky enough to be invited to a special event. Yesterday was one of those days and this was an event that will be very hard to beat. I got to try some of the most fabulous food – all produced in Sligo and enjoyed the company of some lovely people.
