Source Sligo Restaurant, Wine Bar and Cookery School - A Must Visit!

Source Sligo has recently opened on John Street, Sligo with instant praise from food lovers, wine buffs and cooking enthusiasts.

A three storey building in the heart of Sligo Town tastefully houses a large open- plan Restaurant on the Ground Floor, a subtle and relaxed wine bar on the First Floor and a state-of- the- art Cookery School on the Top Floor.

Each floor adheres to the Source philosophy of producing locally sourced quality food in a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Indeed the interior reflects this ethos by combining elegance with a home-grown retro feel. Owners and operators Ray and Eileen Monahan believe that the concept of developing a Restaurant and Cookery School is also a testament to the quality of produce available in the Sligo area and promoting this produce is something that they are passionate about.

The Cookery School runs classes for fun, for knowledge and for education from the, “Can’t cook and won’t cook to those who are passionate about baking or those who may constitute the dinner party brigade. Eithne O’Sullivan the Cookery School Manager explains “the Come Dine with Me evenings are proving very popular as are the family-focused classes like One Pot Meals. We also run special private classes for groups of 12 or more and these can be tailor-made to suit any group from “Hens who would like to cook Mexican” to groups who would like to learn about cooking special meals i.e. for diabetics or those with special needs

Head Chef at the Restaurant, Gerard Reidy, is originally from Kerry and is renowned for his love of Irish food. He has spent many years cooking internationally and representing Ireland cooking for notable politicians and officials. His passion for good wholesome food is evident from the delectable menus and specials on offer each day.

After a day of eating, cooking and chatting, there’s only one last thing to try, the exclusive wine collection. Relax in the Wine Bar upstairs with background music provided by the in house pianist. Mull over the wine list which includes a range of 12 different wines from the owners vineyards in France. Then sit back and enjoy the views over Sligo town towards the tabletop mountain Benbulben.

Cooking Classes can be booked individually or as part of a course.
