Where to stay in Sligo

The town of Sligo boasts a number of lovely accommodations, including hostels and guesthouses, while the landscape surrounding the town is dotted with hotels catering to a range of budgets. If you want to surf away your holiday or explore the setting that inspired Yeats, stay in a bed and breakfast in Sligo town along Old Dublin Road. If you prefer to stay in a more natural setting, explore options in the surrounding countryside. In either case, you will be able to access the alluring coast and the town's historical monuments easily.
