Sligo

— 23 nights
Despite its small size, Sligo serves as a major center of culture, commerce, and entertainment in the northwestern section of Ireland.
Shoot the Crows has been added to your itinerary. Appreciate the collections at The Model, home of the Niland Collection and Coleman Music Centre. For shopping fun, head to Strandhill People's Market or Hazelwood House. Venture out of the city with trips to Gillighan's World, The Field of Dreams (in Ballinacarrow), Caves of Keash (in Ballymote) and Easkey River Walk (in Easkey). Next up on the itinerary: browse the eclectic array of goods at Rathcormac Artisan Food and Craft Market, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, walk around Dooney Rock Forest Park, and step off the mainland to explore Coney Island.

Yeats County
County Sligo draws visitors with stunning nature, distinct culture, and literary importance. In the northwest of Ireland, the county lies close to the border with Northern Ireland. This vantage point gives it a closer connection to the relations and tensions between the original Republic and the newly partitioned Northern Ireland. Despite cold temperatures, visitors come for surfing and other water activities such as stand-up paddling. The county's literary legacy begins with famous manuscripts written in medieval times, such as "Book of Ballymote," and "Annals of the Four Masters," among others. The legacy continues into the 20th century with poet Willliam Butler Yeats, whose poems were inspired by the landscape of northern Sligo.
