Welcome to Sligo’s oldest heritage, award winning pub.
Where Thomas Connolly's heritage pub was first licensed in 1861, its history goes as far back as 1780 when a smaller pub was established in Holborn Street. At the time, the Markievicz Road end of the pub was originally living quarters.
The pub was established during a time when maritime trade flourished along the Irish Atlantic coast . Ships would visit Sligo harbour delivering rope, linen and tea from Europe.
During this time, there was once a grocer's shop at one end of the pub, popular for making sugar, selling tea and bottling whiskey.
Thomas Connolly's storied past includes a visit from Charles Stewart Parnell during the pub's early days plus Thomas Connolly himself becoming Mayor of Sligo in 1890.
These days, Thomas Connolly is best known for their warm welcome, their famous pint of stout, regular live music and relaxing atmosphere.
