day trips around Sligo

We will be spending 4 nights at the Beach Bar near Sligo in July and are looking for suggestions for day trips from there. We will have a rental car.

See if anything here is of interest:



Slightly further afield, but, still close enough to combine with Co. Sligo, is neighboring Co. Roscommon:


You might find the AA Route Planner on this web site helpful for distances between places, although you can add 10%-15% extra time for real time conditions:

You are a few hour's drive away, but we really enjoyed our time at Slieve League, Malin Beg, and Glencolumbkille in South-West Donegal.

Some of the day trips that we highly recommend from Sligo include:

Arigna Mining Experience in Co. Roscommon www.arignaminingexperience.ie

Belleek Pottery tour and gift shop www.belleek.ie

Marble Arch Caves and Geopark www.marblearchcavesgeopark.com

Enniskillen Castle and museum enniskillencastle.co.uk

There is also the boat trip from Enniskillen to monastic Devenish Island well worth visiting.

We got back from Ireland last week and I want to thank everyone for their suggestions. Had a wonderful stay at Beach Bar in Aughris Head and we loved the Cliff Walk there. Slieve League has to count as the most amazing place I've ever seen. My husband can't wait to go back and go salmon fishing in Ballina. Amazing scenery everywhere we went and some of the nicest people I've ever met.
