Sligo is situated on the North West Atlantic coast of Ireland and has ancient burial sites older than the pyramids of Egypt. The town of Sligo nestles between the mountains of Knocknarea, reputedly the final resting place of the legendary Queen Maeve of Connaught and the majestic, flat-topped Benbulben which has been likened to Table Mountain in South Africa.

Nobel prizewinning poet, William Butler Yeats and his artist brother, Jack spent summer holidays in Sligo, the home of their mother Susan Pollexfen. With the county of Sligo as their canvas, the literary and artistic achievements of both brothers brought them international acclaim and led to Sligo also being dubbed ‘Yeats Country’. W .B. is buried at his own request in Drumcliffe, just 7km (4.5 miles) north of Sligo town.

Other literary connections with Sligo town include Spike Milligan and Bram Stoker. Sligo has it all – lakes, rivers, forest walks and the mighty Atlantic ocean with a range of activities and festivals to suit everyone. It also has a particular and unique sound when it comes to Irish traditional music. Sligo is surprising!
