Gillighan's World - The Field of Dreams

Attractions

Knocknashee : Ancient Hill-fort & legendary “Hill of the Faeries”

‘Under the shadow of Knocknashee nestles a place for the faerie filled with glee' a mythical park which encapsulates the world of the Irish faerie and their timeless legacy of magic and mystery. Its landscape is laced with enchanting depictions of these elusive fairies and their kin which hide within the gardens, woods and over streams. Both family and pet friendly with plenty of activities to amuse the children, the historic setting and tranquil ambience provide the perfect atmosphere for adults seeking a more spiritual experience. Rustic Tea Rooms, secluded picnic areas, pet sanctuary, reading library, and beautifully stocked faerie gift shop allow visitors an escape from a busy outside world into the delights of an Irish fairy land, old world charm, and antiquity.

Review

It is fair to say that Ireland is a very mythological country, from the legend of Finn MacCool, the alleged builder of the Giants Causeway, to the banishment of all snakes by St Patrick. Gillighan's World here in Sligo really is the ‘Field of Dreams' and I had an absolutely wonderful afternoon here. As I walked with excitement through the stone tunnel entrance I was quite unsure of what to expect from this attraction, but what I uncovered really did surprise me. This attraction isn't just an attraction for children, I think there are a vast amount of adults who would also enjoy a visit here. Tiny villages and believable faerie habitats perfectly situated in beautiful water attractions and the botanical gardens are really delightful. I arrived not even considering wether faerie folk were real or not, however, when I left Gillighan's World I was left with the thought that maybe just maybe they might!
