Tra Ban Restaurant
Anthony Gray loves to take the flavours of Sligo, the West Coast and the Wild Atlantic Way, and to put them on a plate for you in Eala Bhan, his stylish Sligo restaurant. There is lamb from Sherlocks of Tubbercurry, there is John Flynn’s fresh fish, there is Feeney’s Sligo pork fillet, and he doesn’t mind stepping over the county border to source the superb black and white puddings of Kelly’s of Newport. It means the cooking in Eala Bhan is logical, fresh, focused and super-tasty. Mr Gray brings great energy and welcome to the room, and every traveller on the WAW should make the turn into Sligo town to eat well at Eala Bhan. And if you can’t make it into town, then make sure instead to visit Tra Bhan, Mr Gray’s sister restaurant at Strandhill, which you will find up above the Strand Bar, in this surfer’s paradise. Once again, the cooking makes the most of the coast, but there are also excellent steaks, and families should note that there is also a clever, healthy children’s menu which is particularly smart and imaginative.
