Whether you’re meeting for business or pleasure, have the kids with you, or you’re on your own, the café has something for everyone, and is the perfect place to relax and unwind after visiting the galleries, with free wifi and first rate amenities.

We offer a fresh, seasonal menu and a friendly welcome from our helpful team.  You can eat in the Atrium, with its gorgeous natural light and charming exposed stone walls. Or chose the Foyer, with a range of activities for the kids.

The Café stocks a wide range of hot and cold food, including burgers, sandwiches, wraps, salads and soups, and a large variety of hot and cold drinks.  We have recently teamed with local Sligo Coffee producer, Carrow Coffee, to serve the best, locally brewed coffee in Sligo. If you’re in a rush on your lunch break, why not grab a sandwich from our bar, or order salad to take-away.

The Model hosts regular events, where you can combine great dining and artistic experiences.  Why not join  us for our Informal Music Afternoon, on the first Sunday of every month, from 1pm to feed both your mind and body?

The Model Café is located close to the Sligo University Hospital and IT Sligo, yet still within easy walking distance of Sligo Town.  For those travelling longer distances, there is ample carparking right outside the door.

We hope you enjoy your visit!
