The bedroom is the first of its kind in Ireland and was built as part of the hotel’s recent refurbishment. It is intended to help individuals explore, develop and engage their senses in a calm environment in which families with children with additional needs can relax.

Created to benefit children with autism, ADHD and a variety of other disabilities, the sensory bedroom at Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Sligo combines a range of stimuli to help children interact using their senses, with colourful lights, soft fabrics and music helping individuals to engage in an enjoyable and non-stressful way.

The sensory bedroom has a mobile sensory trolley, complete with a colour command interactive panel and waterless rainbow tube, allowing children to navigate through a spectrum of colours and patterns, and a range of massage rollers, ear defenders and puppets to enjoy during their stay. Visual media also feature in the sensory bedroom, including an Aura Projector, which projects a series of tropical fish and bird imagery, while fibrotic lights allow guests to enjoy a starry night indoors.

Featuring colourful bean bags, bed linen and lava lamps, the sensory bedroom is available now to book.

Random sensory quotes

a painter appeals to visual sense, while a musician plays to auditory senses; an actor performs to engage both, the eyes and ears of the audience, however, a culinary artist has a much more complex role to play, he said. He is said to be successful with his creation only if he is able to satisfy all five senses of the recipient; the eyes, ears, touch, smell and taste.
