Case Study Sligo Council, Ireland
Creating a year round outdoor dining area...
Instashade worked with Sligo Council in Ireland to fully re-vamp the Tobergal lane area of the city. The Council had the aim of creating an all-year round outdoor dining area to benefit various restaurants and cafes in the area. The scheme consisted of Nova parasols, complete with heat and light, fully installed branded screens and our café series parasols.
Working closely with BDP, the project architects, Instashade planned the correct sizes and layouts for each separate area.
Our team travelled to Sligo to fully install all parts of the order, providing full demonstrations of each product to the relevant vendors.
Eva Costello, Manager, Wild Atlantic Way at Fáilte Ireland, said: “It is fantastic to see the Tobergal Lane outdoor dining infrastructure, which was funded by Fáilte Ireland and developed in partnership with Sligo County Council, being so well received by visitors. Outdoor dining is now a permanent feature in many of our towns and cities and facilities like these support tourism businesses to provide access to outdoor dining options for longer periods of the year.”
The Cathaoirleach of Sligo County Council, councillor Michael Clarke said: “Completed in only a few weeks, Tobergal Lane ‘sparks joy’ for all who pass through it. That is a wonderful accolade for any placemaking project. Well done to all involved and I hope the people of Sligo and visitors will enjoy dining outdoors amongst the wonderful planting for years to come.”
