Start off 2017 in Sligo

Swan Lake

Happy New Year to you all. I hope it will be a kind year to you. As it’s the last week of the school holidays I thought I’d do a post of some suggestions of things to do in Sligo.

From now until January 29th get your skates on at Sligo on Ice. Fun for all the family! You can book here.

Enniscrone have a Charity New Years Day swim. 1st January, 2017 at 2.30pm. Make a splash for good causes.

On January 2nd why not climb Benbulben with High Hopes Hiking  Cost: €20 To book on this hike email:

Get on your skateboard, scooter or roller blades at Zero Gravity Skatepark. Fun for all and open during the holidays.

Happy Days Adventure Play Centre is perfect for the younger members of your family.  While the kids play the adults can relax over a coffee in the cafe.

Sligo Youth Theatre

From January 3rd – 7th join the wonderful Sligo Youth Theatre for Holly Pilchard’s Hotel for Retired Fairy Tale Characters. Tickets €8 or €5 for concessions.

Sligo Fun Company present Oliver! from the 4th – 8th January at the Hawk’s Well Theatre and if it’s like their other shows it will be fantastic. Tickets€18 or €15 for concessions.

The Operation Transformation Walk takes place on Saturday January 7th at Doorly Park at 9.30am.

There’s a Sligo Walking Club which meets twice a week and might be of interest to some of you if you don’t want to walk on your own.

Reconstructing Memory - The Model

Check out the exhibitions at the Hamilton Gallery and The Model, Sligo. Both well worth a visit.

If the weather stays as mild as it has been there’s a fantastic playground and outdoor gym opposite Argos.

For all the music you could wish for check out the fantastic Sligo Musicians Gig Guide.

This post is just a guide and not a recommendation of things to do and is not sponsored or affiliated with any of the events mentioned or by any other company.
