Indoor and outdoor activities, a 20 metre pool with kids pool, and large family rooms and suites – choose the Clayton Hotel Sligo for family breaks in Sligo this year.
I recall many Instagram stories of family breaks in Sligo last year, and all with glowing reports of the Clayton Hotel Sligo. It was not only the distinctive building and extensive grounds that impressed me. Upon arrival children were greeted with a kiddies welcome bag and treats, as well as a voucher for recently opened Aunty Shiela’s Sweet shop.
The Leisure Centre, fairy trail and mini-golf course are big draws, and a Kids Club will be operating during Mid Term and Easter holidays. It seems its not just me that is impressed with the Clayton Hotel Sligo’s facilities – it receives excellent reviews from guests on TripAdvisor and was a Travellers Choice Award winner in 2021.

I have highlighted some of the Clayton Hotel Sligo’s family friendly facilities below, as well as some of the activities that are available nearby.
There is a 20 metre swimming pool and a separate kiddies pool at the Clayton Sligo Hotel. Both pools and the pool area are heated, and parents can enjoy a work out in the gym or some relaxation time in the sauna, steam room, and Jacuzzi afterwards.

Sinergie Restaurant offers more intimate dining, while Bulben’s Bar & Bistro has more casual atmosphere, as well as delicious cocktails. Family meals can be added to this offer for €70, based on a family of four, where children dine from the Kids Menu.
The newly-opened traditional Aunty Sheila’s Sweet Shop is another great addition, and stocks a wide selection of specialty sweets, some of which are not usually found in Ireland.
