IrelandWelcome to our page of information, attractions and places of interest around Sligo. The Sligo hotels listed below are either in the town or we have given a rough guide as to how far they are from Sligo. The Republic of Ireland is bound to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east is the Irish Sea which reconnects to the ocean via the southwest with St. George's Channel and the Celtic Sea. The Republic of Ireland has 26 counties, and five cities — Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford. The west-coast of Ireland features cliffs, hills and low mountains. The centre of the country is flat with large areas of bogland. We hope you enjoy your stay and find your ideal accommodation.

Sligo Town is the largest town in the northwest of Ireland standing at the mouth of the Garavogue River between Lough Gill and the Atlantic Ocean. Sligo has a wealth of ancient heritage dating back 6,000 years and has close connections with the poet and playwright W.B. Yeats and his family. To the south of Sligo lie the Ox Mountains and Knocknarea Mountain with Queen Mauve's Cairn dominating the skyline to the West.
