Co. Sligo

Co. Sligo

Co Sligo is one of those West Coast counties that has another special place in my heart, having spent quite a lot of time there whilst planning this book, I got to know the county pretty well. From the sugar loaf mountain that is Benbulben, to WB Yeats final resting place, in the small village of Drumcliffe. Even horse riding on a beach for the first time, so many memories for me here. Famous for lots of things, one of them being the amount of things they can do with seaweed, one of my fondest memories of Sligo will always be treating my mum and late dad to a seaweed bath in Strandhill. Sligo is also both a magical and mythical place, with fairie folk reputed to live under the hill at Knocknashee! But no matter your reason, Co. Sligo and it's views along its fantastic blue flag beaches are truly spectacular.

Another appealing feature of basing yourself in the County of Sligo, is its close proximity to its surrounding sister counties. Roscommon, Leitrim, Donegal, and Co. Mayo all border Co. Sligo, all easily reachable by car, so once you've seen and done it all here, you won't have far to travel on to the next county. As far as accommodation and restaurants are concerned, your spoilt for choice, whether it's fish and chips in Bundoran, or a hearty meal in a traditional Irish pub in Sligo itself. Finally and I think it worth mentioning, Co. Sligo also borders Co. Fermanagh in the north and together with its lakes and islands, it is also worth adding to your itinerary. Also with a Royal connection being Lord Mountbatten, Co. Sligo is one of those counties that can be whatever you want it to be, so what are you waiting for?
