County Sligo is located on the North West coast of Ireland and is surrounded by counties such as Roscommon and Mayo. The area is extremely peaceful with its windswept landscapes due to its location.
There is plenty to see and do in the area too, ranging from the shorelines along the coast to the mountains, such as Benbulben Mountain notorious for being loaf shaped. The region is full of traditions within the communities and would be perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing break where you can see Ireland's traditions first hand.
County Sligo is a part of Ireland with a varied landscape. The rough areas upland are a walkers paradise and also offers great routes for riders and mountain bikers. Whilst wandering through the area it is worth making the effort to go to Queen Maeve's Grave which is on the summit of Knocknarae or the Megalithic Cemetery located at Carrowmore.
From the uplands to the water lands the area has water dotted with forest covered islands and full to the brim with fish perfect for anyone who enjoys angling. Angling can be done in the county in a number of areas though so don't just stick to just one place when you can choose between the lakes, off shore or along the coast line.
The coastlines of Sligo also attract surfers as the waves coming in from the Atlantic have nothing to stop them until they hit this coast. Suggestions on surfing locations in the county include Rosses Point, Enniscrone and Strandhill which also offer the chance to just enjoy a relaxing day in the sun as well.
One of the major attractions for a holiday in County Sligo is the golf. There are a number of courses to choose from whether you are beginner or expert but if you wish to have a round on one of the more challenging courses you may need to remember your handicap certificate.
Sligo Town is the capital of County Sligo and offers a great choice of vacation rentals. It is a location known for its authenticity with music being popular in the bars and inns. There is a small airport just outside of Sligo Town which has flights to and from Dublin.
