1. ST - Welcome to Sligo Town

Yeats is not the only writer who has Sligo & its environs to thank for inspiring some of his best work; writers as diverse as Spike Milligan, Sebastian Barry and even Bram Stoker have used the streets and stories of Sligo in their works as we'll tell you. There's an emphasis on heritage and cultural, but there are plenty of humorous moments and a few surprises along the way.

The tourist office marks the starting point of the walking tour and is a one stop shop for all tourist information in the north west. Open all year. We designed this tour way back in 2010 when the office was opposite Summerhill college, so there is method in our madness in getting you to the college. Once doen, you'll be following a natural line of places of interest.

To get to Summerhill college, you will need to turn left down O'Connell Street, then right briefly onto John Street before turning up Charles Street which leads onto The Lurgy. At the end of The Lurgy, you'll be facing Summerhill college across the road of Temple Street.
