Sligo

The river Garavogue in Sligo

Sligo (from the Irish: Sligeach meaning "shelly place") is the county town of County Sligo in Ireland.  Sligo Town is a busy, atmospheric spot filled with great restaurants, shops and pubs, while the county’s smaller villages are excellent places to escape the frenetic pace of life. Resounding with literary history, Sligo County is one of the  North West’s most scenic areas and was the inspiration for poet WB Yeats, whose final resting place is beneath the beautiful Benbulben Mountains. As well as some truly beautiful mountainous scenery, Sligo is also blessed with still glassy lakes, and some beautiful beaches perched right on the edge of the Atlantic.
