Fathers Day Gift Guide
As we roll in to the month of June, we have one big event circled in our diary - Father’s Day! Falling on Sunday 21st June this year, it is a day to say thanks to the special men who have influenced our lives.
This year with COVID-19 and lockdown impacting all of us, we may not be able to give them a hug and celebrate with family how we normally would - but we have plenty of gift ideas to inspire you for the perfect Father’s Day present to send this year.
Feehily’s Florist are lucky to be situated in Sligo, surrounded by other independent businesses with ties to the community. Many of them offer gorgeous local products and gifts, so we have hand-picked a few of our favourite gifts for Dad this year. With many retailers offering local delivery to Sligo or click and collect option, it is a great way to still pick out a thoughtful gift for the man of the moment!

Nestled near Sligo on the Wild Atlantic Way you will find Lough Gill Brewery - a family run craft brewery since 2016. They create award-winning beers, taking home the top prize of Best in Ireland in the 2019 Dublin Beer Cup.

The head chef
If your Dad is a talented chef in the home kitchen and loves trying something a little different, inspire him with a copy of Prannie Rhatigan’s Irish Seaweed Kitchen Cookbook. The cookbook is a comprehensive guide to healthy everyday cooking with seaweeds and includes 150 inspiring Irish recipes - old and new.
A beautifully presented book with colour photos and easy step-by-step receipes, Dad will be rustling up scrumptious food for the whole family!
Annie West is an award-winning local artist, who specialises in highly detailed pen and ink drawings with her studio based in Sligo. Her website has a gorgeous selection of artwork and gifts all available to order online. We particularly love her colour Maps Illustrations of famous local areas or popular sites such as The Devil’s Chimney, Hazelwood and Innisfree-Slish Wood.
A thoughtful gift for a Father who loves art and has ties to a local region, he can enjoy his Annie West artwork for years to come.
