Located in the small rural village of Riverstown in County Sligo. Sligo Folk Park offers an enjoyable trip down memory lane to see a little piece of our past. 2014 Sees much change at Sligo Folk Park, Over the winter months much work has been undertaken to improve the visitor experience, through improved indoor displays additional external displays and the development of more of the old out buildings on site. Sligo Folk Park houses a large array of items of historic and sentimental value, ranging from Horse Drawn Farm Machinery to Stationary Engines, From Box Brownie Cameras to Vintage Sewing Machines, Old Shop Fronts, filled with goods from yesteryear and of course Millview house preserved in the way it was when lived in. 2014 Also sees the Launch of The Beehive Cafe Restaurant at Sligo Folk Park, Owned and run by local couple John and Brid Graham, they strive to provide the very best in wholesome home cooking with daily delights such as apple and parsnip soup for starter, local venison stew for main and home made apple pie for sweet followed by one of the finest gourmet coffees in County Sligo. Change is afoot at Sligo Folk Park and we look forward to seeing you here soon. Group bookings are always welcome
