Welcome to Sligo

Welcome to Sligo, known to many around the world as “Yeats Country”. W B Yeats, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, is one of the most important Irish poets ever to break onto the international stage. The beautiful and natural landscape of Sligo is a recurring theme in many of his poems and it was his love for the county that led him to instruct that he be buried there.

Today, this beauty is still clear to see, inspiring a whole new generation of visitors. Sligo has a wide variety of scenery to offer. From the Atlantic battered coastline to the Ox Mountains towering over the county in the west, to the uniqueness of Benbulbin and the seaside resort of Strandhill there's plenty for the visitor to experience. Golf, angling, cruises and hill walking are all popular elements of any holiday in the area. With one of the highest concentrations of megalithic monuments in the country, Sligo also offers plenty to entice any history buff. All of this natural wonder combines to make Sligo a truly magical experience.

Things to Do

  • Knocknarea: Knocknarea is a large hill west of Sligo town which dominates the skyline over the Coolera peninsula, and is one of the most striking landmarks in the entire region. A giant rocky cairn known as “Queen Maeve’s Grave” is clearly visible on the mountain top; according to legend it is here that Maeve, the legendary Queen of Connacht, is buried underneath the massive monument. This site is definitely recommended for those who enjoy hillwalking while taking in the wonders of an ancient landscape.

  • Sligo Town: A vibrant and lively town and home to a great selection of accommodation, pubs, restaurants and cafés. This is a fantastic town to experience Irish culture first-hand. The town also has some great tourist attractions such as Sligo Abbey, a 13th century Dominican monastery, Sligo County Museum and The Yeats Memorial Building, which contains a reference library and exhibition on W.B. Yeats.

  • Strandhill Beach: Facing the Atlantic Ocean, is the beautiful coastal village of Strandhill. Renowned all over the world for its amazing surfing conditions, Strandhill is generally considered to be one of the best beach breaks in the country and is perfect for amateur and professional surfers alike. The area also features relaxing seaweed baths and kayaking in nearby Lough Gil and around Ballisodare Bay and Seal Colony.

  • Kilcullen’s Seaweed Baths: These amazing seaweed baths are something not to be missed if you are visiting Enniscrone. Since 1912 Kilcullen’s Bath House has been relaxing and unwinding the public. The building still contains its Edwardian fittings and original Edwardian porcelain baths, as well as cedar-wood steam boxes. This is a great relaxation treat and a throwback to the early 20th Century.

  • Benbulben: Benbulben is Ireland’s most distinctive mountain. The result of different responses to erosion of the limestone and shale of which the mountain is formed, many legends have formed through the centuries regarding this mountain. Today it has become a beautiful looped walking trail with spectacular scenery at every turn and is one of the most photographed natural landscapes in Ireland.

  • The Model: The Model is one of Ireland’s leading contemporary arts centres. The building, located in the centre of Sligo Town, contains a restaurant and coffee dock, a bookshop, a wonderful gallery circuit, a purpose built performance space and digital cinema. This award-winning building features works by John and Jack B. Yeats, Estella Solomons, Paul Henry and Louis Le LeBrocquy among others. The Model has a vibrant music programme which includes an eclectic mix of contemporary and classical music.

  • Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery: Visit the largest cemetery of megalithic tombs in Ireland at Carrowmore, just outside Sligo Town. Over 60 tombs have been discovered, including portal tombs, ring forts, cairns and passage graves some of which are nearly 5800 years old. A restored cottage houses an exhibition relating to the site, and guided tours are available during the summer months. Nearby, Carrowkeel Megalithic Cemetery is a second large prehistoric site which contains many stone cairns, similar to Queen Maeve’s Grave on Knocknarea.

  • Inishmurray Island: Just 7km off the coast of Sligo, Inishmurray has been uninhabited since 1948. The remoteness of the island made it a spiritual paradise for Christian monks, and many of the monastic buildings, dating from the 6th Century can still be seen today. Its remoteness is both a gift and a curse and today the island serves as a beautiful but poignant reminder of Irish island life.

  • Sligo Folk Park: Located in the beautiful village of Riverstown, this community based attraction provides a true experience of rural life and Irish heritage at the turn of the late 19th century. The Folk Park is set in the grounds of the authentically restored Millview House, which was originally built in 1873. One of the highlights is the Village Street, a recreated street scape consisting of a creamery store, grocery shop and pub.
