“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2008

The drive to Lough Gill is a must see. Beautiful views, unspoilt countryside and even more lovely people who live here. They are the most hospitable and friendliest people you will ever meet. I had always planned to retire to Co Donegal but have now changed my mind. This is the place for me .... and I'll die happy!

“liked it so much i moved here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2007

I first came to Sligo in 2001. The wild beauty of the landscape simply takes your breath away. Lough Gill in particular is beautiful and I fell in love so much with it I moved from Birmingham, England just 8 months later to live in Dromahair, a village just a few miles from the Lough. It is a place that lives in your heart and the people are without doubt the warmest and kindest you could meet. It is somewhere everyone should visit if only once. Yes the weather can disappoint but you can't be this green without a little rain! If you like the sea, mountains, forests, lakes, villages or quaint towns then Sligo/Leitrim has it all. Lough Gill will explain in one glance why WB Yeats described Sligo as "land of hearts desire".

There is so much to say about this place, I could write forever. It is a magical place that I would advise everyone to see at least once in there life. The scenery is spectacular and the people amazing. It's one corner of the world not to be unspoilt by too much tourism. A must for everyone. Have fallen in love with this place so much.
