Yes, Fabio's fabulous gelato is that good. The person who compared this gelato with tesco's disgusting soft scoop frozen hydrogenated vegetable oil falsely labeled as 'ice cream' must have a palate of a donkey. There will always be customers for good stuff and there will always be braying donkeys complaining about everything. Keep it up Fabio!

My wife and I were advised to try the icecream here and it was really worth it. Nice tasty icecream. I tried the special one for this month, which was excellent. It is a bit price, but worth it.

Homemade and loads of variety. Well worth a visit for icecream lovers. Its more of a purchase and walk place with dew stools so not suitable if you have buggies and loads of shopping with you

Another example of the the prevailing Italian Sligo rip-off. Ridiculously overpriced average tasting ice cream.

Just the best ice-cream ever! So many different flavours to pick from makes choosing very difficult. They also do great sandwiches at lunchtime.

1st Day of an Irish Summer in Sligo. Rain, hail, sleet and sunshine between the showers. Popped into Fabios for some delicious Gelato and flavours to remind us of sunny holidays in Italy. Trying to be good so I went for the Dairy Free, Fat free but bursting with flavour Raspberry and Lime......delicious! Also enjoyed a fabulous Americano whilst looking... More
