Although Muslims visiting Eagles Flying will not be able to find prayer facilities at the sanctuary, they will be able to locate a clean and quiet place outdoors to offer their prayers. Visitors could also visit the Globe House Muslim Community, which is the only known prayer facilities in Sligo Town.
It is unknown if Eagles Flying is home to a food outlet. Visitors will therefore have to visit the nearest town to find a restaurant or café. Although the town of Sligo is known to be home to a small community of Muslims, there are no known Halal restaurants. Muslim tourists will therefore have to dine on suitable seafood and vegetarian dishes since non-Halal ingredients are sure to be widely used.
