Prayer Facilities

Muslim visitors to The Model will not be able to find prayer facilities at the attraction. They will however be able to offer their prayers at the Globe House Muslim Community, which is the only known prayer facility in Sligo. When visiting The Model, visitors can therefore ask staff to guide them to this mosque when needed.  

Halal Food

As mentioned above, The Model does house a coffee shop and restaurant. While visitors will be able to find a variety of delicious food here, Muslim tourists will have to dine on suitable seafood and vegetarian dishes since non-Halal ingredients are sure to be widely used.
