Whether it is for food, drinks or a good night's sleep, the Driftwood is a place for you to come and unwind in a fun & relaxed, family friendly environment!

The bar & cafe area is the perfect place for some light food or to relax and have a drink, with gorgeous views over Sligo Bay & Oyster Island. Paudie's pitmaster background has played a big influence on The Driftwood Smokehouse Restaurant, with smoked meats and seafood playing a central part of the menu, which have been slow cooked in the smoker for up to 15 hours, to give a gorgeous flavour & tender texture.

    We were a group of 10, including 4 children. The menu was excellent, plenty of options for all, and the food was top quality. The kids had great options on the childrens menu and everyone cleared their plates. The staff were excellent, very patient with the kids when they were ordering. Excellent value for money. Highly recommend as a familiy firendly option!

    We were lucky that the special was lobster with garlic butter. It was so tasty. Starters - oysters and chicken wings were delicious. The service was great - helpful and friendly. Overall a great place in Sligo with gorgeous views.

    The food is exceptionally good. The choice on the menu is very appealing. I really like this restaurant and lovely view to enjoy. However, the service was slow to the point of almost ruining the experience. My wife wanted to just get the bill and not bother with dessert and coffee. The problem I could see was they were stretched. They were serving tables and preparing drinks and coffees which made everything inefficient. They were a little rudderless at times. Don't undo all the good work in the kitchen by making patrons wait excessively long to have their tables cleared or wait to pay bills. Terrific food!

    Seafood paella was meant to be for two. Very little fish and not enough food for two. Watery and slightly undercooked. €40 seemed steep.

    Lovely food but were seated near the door. Other guests in and out, slamming the door every time. Maybe the hinge needs to be fixed or replaced, nice place but it takes away from experience when door keeps slamming and interrupting conversation.
