Hi VTs. We are spending about a week in Ireland next summer and will be staying in the countryside about 40km southwest of Sligo. What is the best way for us to travel so we can see the best of Ireland in that week? Driving is OK, but I'd like to be able to do some whiskey tasting, and enjoy the pubs, so alternate ideas are welcome. We will be 4 adults, and at the end of the week, we'll be leaving from Dublin.
is there public transport from the sligo park hotel
I am traveling with 3 friends through Ireland in August 2012 and we had planned to stop in Sligo for one night. Could you give me some tips/recommendations as to what is good to see/do there.

After spending a week horsebackriding in the Sligo area, we have 5 days to travel to other areas of Ireland. Are there specific modes of travel from Sligo that make it easy to see other areas. We will be arriving from Dublin by train to Sligo, so would like to go to the Spainish Point area, but am not sure how to get there from Sligo since we will not have a car. Or, should we head to another area. We are very flexible. Are there car rentals in Sligo that allow us to drop off the car in Dublin where we will be flying home? ANy type of information or suggestions would be appreciated? This is our first visit abroad to Ireland.
Inoticed the posting regarding the sheep and the hiking trails, has anyone gone horsebackriding without a guide in the area of Sligo?
Hello, does anyone have any information and detail on local/Sligo Flea markets, Car boot sales & Antique markets or stores on Friday June 25th? We really enjoy the experience of a local market. We will have a car also, local public transportation works well too.
Thank you all for any & all comments.
I see nothing about the Gentry on any of the postings? Ben Bulben and Ross Pt. are associated with Them. Any locals or tourists have experience of Them?
Can anyone recommend a hotel or B&B in Sligo that is not too far from the train station? (Unless the train station is in a dreadful part of town that you'd discourage staying in.) Main concerns are something accessible to my 93-year-old mom who uses a push walker and can't do a lot of stairs at one time. Did you have occasion to use either taxi or bus from the station to the hotel or B&B? Do you recall the approximate cost?
I'm interested in visit Sligo this summer with child and I want more information about Gillighan’s World, it seems a nice option for my nieces. Is a good place?
What can I visit in Sligo for two days?
Thank you in advance for your replays.
Going to Co. Sligo for three weeks this summer.I am an assistant to a writer and we will be doing research for a book while there. Where do you suggest we stay? We can stay anywhere in Co Sligo. Ideally, we would like to stay in a house in a village center where we can walk to eat, to a pub. We are open to all accommodations that offer comofort and have charm.

we were thinking of going from derry to galway then to belfast, oct 18-19, but think sligo is a better choice for driving etc. any good thoughts about b*b or farm in sligo?
Is there a laundramat in Sligo?? we will bw spending two weeks in ireland later this month. Our two day stop in Sligo is in the middle of our trip. Packing will be much easier if we knew we could do laundry while we wre in Sligo
I am going to Enniscrone in Sligo in july and I was wondering are their many places of historical interest near there. Also what all activites are there for three young children aged 4, 3 and 2. Love to hear from you.
hi,i believe my mothers surname came from a place called o'tarpaigh.in sligo.her name was tarpey,a good ancient irish name by all accounts.does this place exist to this day.
My husband and I have rented a cottage in Easkey for our base as we explore the coast. I can't find much information on the town except that it's well known for surfing. We also plan on getting up to Killybegs since this is where my ancestors Derry's are from and would love any information on the area from those who have traveled or live there. Thanks! Betsy
