Despite its small size, Sligo serves as a major center of culture, commerce, and entertainment in the northwestern section of Ireland.
Take a break from the city and head to Knocknarea and Benbulben. Venture out of the city with trips to Coleman Music Centre (in Gorteen) and Caves of Keash (in Ballymote). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Strandhill Beach, don't miss a visit to Rosses Point, examine the collection at Sligo County Museum and Niland Gallery, and take a memorable drive along The Lough Gill Drive.

To find traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Sligo online road trip planner .

Knock to Sligo is an approximately 1-hour car ride. In January, daily temperatures in Sligo can reach 8°C, while at night they dip to 5°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Wed) so you can go by car back home.
