Imagine discovering ancient megalithic tombs that were built by early Irish farmers here thousands of years ago. A lot of these sites are in some of the most scenic areas of the coast and along Sligo’s Wild Atlantic Way and in the mountains of Sligo.  You will find yourself in a very peaceful place on our trails while also finding out about how these people lived long ago. You will hear the old stories and local folklore associated with the place and you will be fully informed of archaeological excavations that took place in the past which is simply fascinating. You cannot find this information anywhere else and that is why you have Auriel with you.

Auriel strongly recommends that you spend more than one day in Sligo.  Most people who visit here and come out on a trail with Seatrails say they wished they had more time and some of them have come back years later! They may have a very specific reason for visiting Sligo initially and come back many times or they may be coming here for the first time after many years of waiting or even a lifetime.  This could be related to tracing their roots or seeking genealogical records for example and Auriel loves to help with this as much as possible.

Sligo is quieter than other parts of Ireland such as Kilkenny, Dublin, Galway or Kerry, but it is a very special place with a special energy, and it will amaze you. You don’t have to travel far away from Sligo Town to see some amazing sites either so contact us with your query. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Fieldtrip to Deerpark Court Tomb

In Dec 2018, Auriel accompanied our school on an archaeological trip to Deerpark in County Sligo. This was our second full day trip with Auriel and we had a wonderful experience. It’s so wonderful to have an archaeologist to accompany schools on trips to historical sites, as we found that Auriel was able to bring the story and history alive of what looked like a stone circle to the children, or just a bunch of stones. Auriel had prepared lots of wonderful information and presented it to the children in a very interesting, engaging and fun way. On the walk to the monument, Auriel engaged the children with lots of information on the geology surrounding them as well as the flora and fauna of Deerpark. We hope to continue to engage Auriel into the future on historical and geography trips to explore our local environment and area.
