We spent a wonderful day with Auriel, hiking to Queen Maeve's Tomb on Knocknarea and then up to Carrowkeel with its 5,000 year old megalithic passage tombs. There are stunning views from each site. We went on a misty rainy day and only caught glimpses...More

Fantastic ride with Auriel as our guide! Informative, entertaining and welcoming would best describe the experience. She introduced us to her beautiful and fascinating slice of the planet north of Sligo. Auriel teams up with Island View Riding Stables to take her curious travelers on...More
