Compared to many other parts of the world, we are starved of sun in Sligo. Hence when it does come out, especially for the first time each year, everyone rushes to the coastal villages of Strandhill, Enniscrone and Rosses Point to laze on the beaches, swim in the sea, and generally hang out to soak up the summer vibes.
Of course the businesses in each village love when the sun comes out, as the footfall increases hugely, people are in spending form, and business booms as a result.
However it can be all too fleeting, especially in sun-starved Sligo, and hence it’s worth the time of these businesses to work hard in order attract people all year around, not just when the sun comes out.
It’s better to be someone known for reliability, good service, consistent excellence, and to be sought out all year round, rather than waiting for the few weeks each year where circumstances bring people to you.
