Orla Seery, Sales & Marketing Manager at Clayton Hotel Sligo had the following to say “We are thrilled to be the first hotel in Ireland with a Sensory room, we feel it is important to offer facilities to cater for all our guests and ensure they have the most comfortable and enjoyable stay.  

"At the launch of the Sensory room we had great support from local and national organisations, and most importantly the children in attendance thoroughly enjoyed the sensory room.”

The Sensory room was designed by Mary Clarke along with the hotel's Kids Club team and maintenance Staff.
