Chill Insurance have recently produced an ebook of Musical Drives, it’s a really interesting read containing Irish music videos, music-inspired landmarks and much more. Chill contacted me to collaborate on a blog post about my favourite drives in Ireland and in keeping with the musical theme I’m going to tie in some songs to go with it.
South and West Sligo, in my opinion, are hugely underrated. There are some fantastic activities, festivals, businesses, hotels, pubs and more located in the area.
It’s also home to stunning scenery, marvellous markets, wonderful walks and friendly folk. In fact there is so much going on for locals and tourists alike.
Are you passionate about South and West Sligo? Do you have a business or product that appeals to tourists? If so the volunteers in South Sligo Tourism want to hear from you. On Tuesday 21st November 7 p.m. in An Chroi South Sligo Enterprise Centre, Tubbercurry, Co. Sligo a networking event will take place so we can make plans to let the world know about the best kept secret in the North West of Ireland.

I love finding unusual places in Ireland and this one has been on my list to pop into many times. I finally called in today and had a lovely chat with Mary – The Book Lady. Mary is the proud owner of the smallest book shop in Ireland.
If you live in Ireland you have probably heard of Queen Maeve, in Celtic mythology she was known as the Warrior Queen of Connacht. She’s buried in Sligo – in a cairn on the top of Knocknarea Mountain near Strandhill.
The Keshcorran Mountain walk is one of the walks listed on the Sligo Walks website. I’ve given myself a challenge to try as many of the walks as I can. This one is just spectacular and so worth a visit if you are in Sligo.
Myself and Lucy have had a wonderful couple of days in Galway. We were invited along to preview some of the places involved in the Galway Food Festival which takes place on the Easter Weekend. Warning this post will make you hungry!
