I spent a week in Sligo in September 2013 with some of my family. I'd never been to the northwest of Ireland before, and I loved it. Sligo town is lovely, with a fair amount to do and easy to walk. And there is even more in the area. Lots of great day trips or - more like it - partical day trips within an hours drive.
Save Place
Gleniff, Co. Sligo, Ireland
This is a beautiful area northeast of Benbulben in the Dantry Mountains. Worth a drive on the backroads. It is on private property. It requires consent to walk on the road up to the top, which is worth it if you can.
Save Place
Carrowmore, Co. Sligo, Ireland
Very close to Sligo, and worth a stop. Be sure to talk to one of the guides, who will enhance your visit a lot with the story of these areas.

The Mall, Rathquarter, Sligo, Ireland
if you have some extra time in Sligo, check what they have showing at the Model. They have three galleries, where they often have guest exhibitions. Also has the nicest restrooms in Sligo!

1-, 3 Castle St, Abbeyquarter North, Sligo, Ireland
A very good little pub, serves a very nice pint. Often has some music in front. And check out the tee shirts.

Save Place
Formoyle, Glencar, Co. Leitrim, Ireland
Definitely worth a visit when in Sligo. An easy drive down the N16 - it is a beautiful drive. The waterfall is an easy walk from the parking lot. There is also a hike up the mountain, but I didn't have time to check it out. If driving back to...
Save Place
Quay St, Abbeyquarter North, Sligo, Ireland
A really nice place for lunch. It's on second floor, above the bakery and next to a retail space. You can't tell from the street, but it is a very nice place with good food. They have some buffet style, and will also make sandwiches to order.
Save Place
2 Lord Edward St, Abbeyquarter North, Sligo, Ireland
Just spent a week in Sligo. Went to a fair number of places, and this was my favorite in town. They have a big bar menu - downstairs in the pub only - and a more expensive one for the restaurant upstairs - the Coach House. You can have food from...
