Looking for things to do in Sligo Town or looking for some family fun in Sligo? Our town tour is perfect for that
Enjoy our town tour and hear all the interesting history of Sligo town and its people. You will be amazed what you find out. Sligo town has been a busy trading city for centuries. It was initially founded by the Anglo Normans and built on the pretty Garavogue River. It is situated in the north west on an old route to the North. The Harbour extends out to Coney Island and Rosses Point.
Sligo survived through many turbulent battles between Irish lords and English governors and soldiers. The town has changed many times over but still retains an old feel to it and the Abbey still survives from the 13th Century. Some of the oldest street names survive today.
On our tour, we will show you the main historic buildings, take you down the Garavogue River walk, point out bars and cafes where to eat and drink and we will recite a poem of famous Irish poet, W. B Yeats if you like along the way. He has a huge connection with the town and county as does his brother, Jack, the famous oil painter. We will also show you the impressive Cathedral and other interesting sites.
