  • Glencar Waterfall

    Sligo Favorites

    Glencar waterfall is well signposted - you can't miss it! After our little walk around Deer Park, my friends were not ready to trek to another site so they waited for me to walk to the waterfall. Unlike our previous walk, this one was a very short jaunt on handicapped accessible walkways. This is an easy site to see, and quite beautiful - the...

  • The Cairn

    Sligo Favorites

    Take a walk around the town centre of Sligo. There are quite a few well worth seeing sights like the Yeats Memorial, the Sligo Cathedral (see photo) and the ruins of Sligo Abbey. Apart from that, Sligo has many little craft shops and stores in O'Connell Street. Near the river Garavogue many nice pubs, cafes and restaurants can be found.

    Sligo is the first place I visited in Ireland - mainly because of retracing the footsteps of the great irish writer W.B. Yeats. It's possibly the last place I visited, too, during my last irish trip. It's a great county, with wonderful scenery: green fields, rolling hills, unspoiled coasts and beaches - in other words all the typical irish...
