Things to do


County Sligo easily boasts one of the most appealing stretches of coast on the Wild Atlantic Way. From its delightfully surfable waves crashing on broad golden shores to the rolling green hills and misty mountaintops of the affectionately dubbed ‘Yeats country’, this is a county that attracts a distinct breed of adventure-loving traveller.

But there’s more to County Sligo than meets the eye; dig a little deeper and you’ll find remnants of the rich and ancient history that has shaped the culture here down through the ages, giving rise to the vibrant way of life - with its great food, good-natured locals, incredible arts and literature and dedication to the environment - that you’ll find when you visit today. You’ll uncover serene villages like Easkey and places to reach out and embrace the Wild Atlantic Way of life like Mullaghmore, and the temperate North Atlantic climate means you’ll enjoy it all no matter the time of year.  

If you’re looking for an unforgettable coastal break, Sligo’s 110km of Wild Atlantic Way Surf Coast attractions - from stunning Strandhill Beach to Rosses Point and the Glencar Waterfall - will ensure everyone in your group finds something to love.
