Conferences in Sligo
With a stunning coastline, world class golf courses and swathes of Irish countryside, it is no wonder that Sligo is a prime destination in Ireland for some of the world’s most illustrious conferences. Sligo has built a reputation for itself for being a business-friendly town which is isolated enough to afford conference delegates privacy while still being close to major business hubs in Ireland.
Delegates looking to stay in a hotel in Sligo near the best sights with business-friendly services and meeting rooms should book a room at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Sligo.
Annual General Conferences
The hotel has played host to a number of Annual General Conferences for bodies like The Marketing Institute, The Psychological Society of Ireland and the Sligo Chamber of Commerce, to name a few. These are some of the comments left by pleased delegates who have successfully held conferences at the hotel:
The Irish Building Control Institute held a very successful Annual Conference in the Sligo Radisson in April 2014. From the very beginning the service and attention to detail offered by Celene Kilgannon and all her team was exceptional. Everything provided was excellent including the Conference Centre, the top class food on offer, and the facilities of the hotel including the rooms and Leisure Centre and the ease of parking. The service we received was top class and Pawel and all his Conference team insured that the Conference proceeded seamlessly for the two days. I would have no hesitation in returning to the Sligo Radisson for a further Event and would recommend it highly for the staging of Conferences.
- Tom Johnson, Conference Director, IBCI
“I recently booked the Radisson Hotel in Sligo for the second time for our Annual General Conference. I was once again blown away with the service. The staff catered for our big numbers efficiently and professionally. The food was amazing and hospitality second to none. I would like to thank the management and staff for our positive experience and I would have no problem recommending the Radisson Hotel, Sligo for any corporate event”.
- Tom Delaney, Prison Officers Association
After the great success of our AGM weekend, I am writing to convey an enormous " Thank You" to both yourself and your staff. From our very first meeting in January you have assisted and facilitated us in every way you could and nothing was a problem. All during the event I was continuously getting comments of high praise from Members and Attendees alike for your staff. Their friendliness and eagerness to assist was been repeated to me over and over. As you know the IWA move the AGM around to different areas of the country every 2 years, but I have already been told by one of our Directors that in his opinion the Sligo Radisson has been the best and most suitable Hotel that IWA have used, and he would not be surprised to see it back in the same location soon.
Once again, a big "Thank you".
- Cormac Monaghan, IWA
Sincere thanks to the Radisson Blu Hotel in Sligo for ensuring that Social Care Ireland Annual Conference 2015 was such an enjoyable experience for all 170 delegates. From the planning stages, right throughout the three day Conference their Team were available to guide and support our organising committee. The friendly, professional and flexible approach of staff was appreciated by all and certainly made coordination of this event much easier. Particular thanks must be given to Berni and Orla who coordinated with us for months leading up to the Conference, and to Pavel who was always on hand to fix any problems should they emerge. I would have no hesitation recommending the Radisson Blu Hotel in Sligo, as a beautiful location providing an excellent standard of food, accommodation and facilities for any event.
- Catherine Byrne, CPD Officer, Social Care Ireland
Two years before our charity’s 65th Anniversary I started searching for the perfect venue to host 150 delegates for 4 days with a very specific programme. We needed a place that could have separate rooms for our meetings, a children’s programme and a crèche host a large number for meals and keep a high standard. The Radisson Blu in Sligo was definitely that place and did not disappoint. From the moment we saw the hotel and where it was situated we knew it would be perfect. Working with the staff was an absolute pleasure and they made everything easy. They met every need and went well above the call of duty to fulfil various requests and did what they could to make everything go smoothly. Every single one of our delegates left happy and no one had any complaints. The food was a joy to eat, the rooms were perfect, luxurious and stunning, the health and fitness facilities were excellent and the manner and conduct of the staff was exemplary. We cannot recommend or endorse the Radisson Blu in Sligo highly enough. We will certainly be using the venue again for our upcoming conferences and special events.
- Mark Kelly, CEF Conference Co-ordinator
I wish to place on record the hospitality shown to all our members during the course of the Convention, in particular to Orla Seery, Berni Chambers, Fidelma O’Malley and Pawel Kruk. The Bar staff, restaurant staff and Chefs have to be commended also on the excellent job they did over the course of the weekend – it was second to none! Our Conference went very smoothly and the feedback we are getting is that it was one of the best Conventions we have ever had. We will have no hesitation in recommending your Hotel to any of our sister organisations for future conventions.

The Radisson BLU Hotel and Spa, Sligo, offered the perfect venue for our National Health and Safety Conference and All Ireland Safety Awards Gala Dinner held in October 2012. The service was excellent and the food second to none. The venue offered the perfect location to host a prestigious, high profile event in the form of a large conference during the day with a quick turnaround to ensure 590 guests were seated at the correct time for the gala dinner. Ample exhibition space was also provided. The hotel's excellent conference and banqueting team together with the rest of the staff and management ensured delegates were truly looked after. If anyone is planning a conference in Sligo or the North West, I could not recommend The Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Sligo, enough.

A large number of our delegates are wheelchair users and the hotel went above and beyond to ensure the smooth running of the event and the comfort of all our guests. The chef and catering team are wonderful and the food is simply superb- we look forward to returning soon.
- Louise Quill, Irish Wheelchair Association
All the Radisson Blu team in Sligo were so helpful to us with the organising, planning and implementing of our AGM and Conference which was held in their hotel this year. Nothing was too big of a problem for them and they dealt with everything in an efficient, diligent and timely fashion. The whole team was a pleasure to work with, the venue was ideal and I look forward to working with all again in the future.

The Institute of Guidance Counsellors held their Annual Conference and AGM in the Radisson Blu Hotel Sligo over three days in March 2013. There were 600 delegates and over 60 exhibitors and workshops. The event managers Denise and Celene worked closely and tirelessly with the organising committee for nine months leading up to the event and during the Conference itself ensuring that our Conference was a huge success. The standard of the food, service, accommodation and facilities was excellent and both delegates and the organising committee were delighted to have had the Radisson Blu Sligo as this year’s venue for our Conference. Thank you Radisson Blu and staff for a fantastic conference.
- Helen Barr, Institute of Guidance Counsellors
I just wanted to say thanks to you and all the staff at the Radisson Blu Sligo for the service and hospitality that was shown to all our delegates this past weekend. All the stops were pulled out and both young and old truly enjoyed their stay. Quotes from Twitter, Facebook and our own internal Chat Forum point to one fact, that this was the best National Council that people have attended in over 35 years!!!!!! Both Gillian's and my phone have been ringing off the hook with people saying what a great venue and weekend it was.
I'm sure repeat business (in a personal capacity) will be forthcoming into the future from many that attended. The West has to wait another 7 years before we host National Council again, but let's see if we can get a smaller conference (200+) there in the not too distant future!
Please thank all the staff for what was a great weekend. This bar has been set very high for other hotels to follow!!!
Oh yea.....the Breakfast rolls went down a treat!!!
Yours in Scouting,
- Brian, Provincial Commissioner - Western Province
