WHAT SLIGO HAS TO OFFER 
www.sligotourism.ie and www.kidsinsligo.ie 

You can Surf on some of the best waves Ireland has to offer or you could try something more adventurous like Shark Fishing off Mullaghmore. Maybe a river cruise on Lough Gill sounds more appealing or simply relax in the world famous Voya Seaweed baths in Strandhill. Sligo is steeped in heritage and culture. The landscape is peppered with monuments, stretching back as far as 5,000 years. 

WB Yeats once said that Sligo was the "Land of Heart's Desire." 

The beauty, archaeology and folklore that filled his early poems are still (as) evident today, and Sligo remains the place where history and legend are helplessly intertwined. 

With a huge range of activities including golf, surfing and horseracing at your fingertips, Sligo is an ideal destination for Business, Fun and Leisure. 

The beach and nearby estuary provide perfect conditions for all water sports including surfing, kite-surfing and sailing. The mountains of Benbulben and Knocknarea are a spectacular backdrop for hiking enthusiasts and the immediate area also offers a variety of easy but awe-inspiring coastal cliff top and peninsula hill walkways and mountain bike tracks. 

Sligo's super-friendly bustling streets are peppered with small boutiques, cafes and bars, as well as a myriad of craftshops offering handmade crafts, pottery and jewellery. 

The new Quayside Shopping Centre boasts a large number of high-street shops including Warehouse, TKMAXX and Oasis. Next door, a 12-Screen Multiplex Cinema will distract even the most discerning of visitors.
