    Luggage and bags: If you are going to be camping, then try and pack your bags as light as you can. It was very annoying for me leaving London with heavy luggage.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: make sure you bring a rain-coat, something warm, and something like a T Shirt. When i was there, the 1st 2 days it rained, the next days were very hot (in july), but got VERY cold in the evenings.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can buy many items at the local shops, ragning from chemists to groceries, to art shops!

    Photo Equipment: You can get cameras or film from many places within the town, and they may even sell camera film in the small shops near the campsites.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There is a beach at Rosses Point and Standhill, where many people surf. if its hot and you wanna relax, bring a pair of shorts. But as for the water temprature....well, remember its the Atlantic Ocean.

    Luggage and bags: Anywhere in Ireland good strong weather resistant bags are a must.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Lots of layers - we can have four seasons in the one day in Ireland. Rain - yes, when? - yes, wind - yes, Rain wear, good walking shoes, warm jumpers.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Everything available in most shops - but obviously if you know you will need something is always better to come prepared.

    Photo Equipment: All available - disposable cameras available widely, batteries and film also. If you need special batteries you may be better bringing with you.

    Miscellaneous: Rain is usual in Ireland, but especially in north-west which is where Sligo is situated. But remember, without the rain we would not have the beauty of rainbows. Here is a picture of one and you may find the 'crock of gold' at the end of one of these fabulous colourful sight.

    Luggage and bags: I always pack as if the airline is going to lose my bags. I always take a LARGE purse and my carry on has two changes of clothes and walking shoes and I carry whatever jacket I need.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Hiking shoes are a must if going outside the city. In the fall, lots of rain and mud, and many travel books seemed to be based on what young athletes can endure! Fine! But I'm neither and if any of you out there want to get out and about but the last time you ran a marathon was in high school, beware of anything deemed 'leisurely'

    It always rains in Ireland so if you don't like rain, don't go there. It was 60F degrees most of the time and quite pleasant if you wear layers. An umbrella is cumbersome so bring a jacket with a hood for those unexpected but thrilling walks on the strand in a gale!!!
