The new advertising campaign from Tourism Ireland was announced yesterday. The global campaign “Fill your heart with Ireland” will begin next month. The first phase will focus on the North and Northwest and that’s all wonderful – but they have bypassed Sligo completely. So I’m going to show you that there’s nothing to see in Sligo:
Wild Goats in the Ladies Brae.
The Devil’s Chimney – the tallest waterfall in Ireland
The mighty Benbulben Mountain. The backdrop of Sligo town.
Strandhill a thriving village on the Wild Atlantic Way. With Queen Maeve’s Cairn and Knocknarea in the background.
Horse riding in Enniscrone, Sligo
The Garavogue, Sligo. One of the shortest rivers in Ireland.
The Wild Atlantic Waves that bring surfers from all over the world.
Walks and trails that take in stunning scenery.
Caves and mythology.
Myths and magic.
Tombs that are older than the pyramids.
As you can see there’s nothing in Sligo 😉
Well done Val
Mullaghmore is a beautiful village with lovely people and the roads to it and from it are wonderful.
But you would not want it to become too popular.
Like my own Galloway it is best if most tourists just bypass it or rush through on the main roads to annoy other people.
Lovely piece Val
Thank you Nuala
Thanks, Val! I hope they have the sense to rectify the oversight. Your pics are fantastic, by the way!
Sligo and it’s surrounding stunning countryside and coastlines are some of the best you’ll ever visit in beautiful Ireland.
The northwest of Ireland is a must see for any visitor if you choose Ireland as your holiday destination.
The Mullet peninsula is an absolutely amazing place to come and see, Belmullet is as friendly a fishing town you will ever find.
All the locals are so friendly and welcoming, with many a hotel, pub or guest house to wind down after you’ve explored all there is to see in the surrounding area.
Like Auchleam, Falmore or the new harbour area at Blacksod bay, with its famous lighthouse linked to happenings in WW2.
So come see, explore and enjoy until your hearts content.
There is SO much to see and always a reason to return for more.
At Tobernault I experienced genetic memory. While walking inthis place with a Mass rock dating from the penal times,I “remembered” the place which was familiar to some family ancestors. I knew I had been there before. Even as I write this the memory is present.
