Sligo

4.4
Mountains · Architectural Buildings · Wildlife Areas
Despite its small size, Sligo serves as a major center of culture, commerce, and entertainment in the northwestern section of Ireland. Maintaining its reputation as a low-key coastal seaport, Sligo attracts domestic and international travelers with rich history and natural scenery. The town likely drew its first settlers during the Early Neolithic period, as evidenced by the abundance of ancient archaeological sites spread across the greater Sligo area. A large group of megalithic tombs sits on the town's western outskirts, while two more stone monuments dominate its southern edge. Experience Sligo's particular mix of ancient and modern by exploring its pedestrian streets and stone bridges. In the build up to your vacation in Sligo, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Ireland trip maker website.
