Do & See:
To get an overview of what to do in and around Sligo, visit the tourist
office. They help you out and offer free walking tours in the town. You can also book a private car to drive you around. Some nice sights around the city are:
The grave of W.B. Yeats is located in the cemetery of Drumcliffe Church. The Irish poet had spent
his childhood in Sligo.
At the Mullaghmore Head you can let the sea wind blow you away and watch local beach life.
If you want to cross the border to Northern Ireland, you can take the bus towards Enniskillen. The 1.5hr ride runs through beautiful sceneries and you get a good view on Sligo‘s landmark –
Benbulbin mountain. Close to Enniskillen, the Watermill
Restaurant is a great place to eat (you can also stay there for some nights).
