- What a monolith! You can’t help but being amazed at Benbulb which dominates the county and the little villages and towns that rests under its shadow.Written 11 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is not a hard hike. We started at the Knocknarea Parking lot and took the trail to the right which takes you through the woods. It is more of a walk for the first 3K. When you get around to the ocean side you start to climb and at about the 4K mark you head up to the top. Good views on the way up and at the top. It can get very windy and squalls come in at any time. We did the 6K look in about 1 hour 45 minutes. Worth your time.Written 21 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery is on Sligo, Ireland. It costs 5 Euros to enter, there is a car park, toilets and small visitors centre.
The tombs at Carrowmore are dated about 3000 BC. The main tomb is one of the largest in Ireland. Many of the tomb foundations are simply large rocks, the area is said to have over 60 tombs.
If you can go on a sunny clear day. The reason is you will see the significance of the surrounding mountain range to the layout of the tombs. This is particularly the case with Knocknarea where a tomb can be seen on the mountain.Written 20 September 2023

- Getting here is no joke. The roads are tiny and you feel like you're just leaving your car in a field. BUT it is soooo worth it! The signage isn't great so we didn't know if we could go through the gate or not - you can - but we enjoyed our walk anyway. It was cold and rainy and windy, but we pressed on, sharing space with all the sheep. I think part of the adventure was just not knowing where we were going or when we'd arrive. (We didn't see anyone else until we left and ran into the farmer who was tending his land and sheep.) The landscape was lovely and when we finally got to the top and found the tombs were were in awe. So impressive! We only investigated the first 2 because we were literally fighting the wind to stand upright, but it was worth it. This was one of the highlights of our 8-day trip!
(You can skip about 15 minutes of the walk each way by driving through the gate and parking a bit further up the hill. I think it took us about 45 minutes each way.)Written 20 June 2022
- A visit to this beautiful, historical house is a must for fans of Irish history. Paul was a great tour guide, lively and personable. The tour itself however was perhaps a little rushed. The numbers on the tour were also quite large - I would suggest too large. It's also a pity that the house isn't in state ownership - as it's privately owned, the entire upstairs is off-limits.
The coach house has been turned into tea rooms, and although the space itself looks pretty, on a cold, wet and windy July day, the high ceilings and bare walls meant it was cold and uncomfortable to spend a few hours in before our tour started. There were also limited refreshments available - just a couple of traybakes, and tea and coffee.Written 7 July 2023
- Such a lovely waterfall and the walk to it is lovely a little bit tough but doable. It took about 40mins but so worth it when you get to the top. The views are just amazing, if u are taking a trip to sligo this is definitely a must do.Written 30 August 2020
- Very helpful, very obliging, very knowledgeable.
And very patient!
I chatted so long about visiting the DPRK that I didn't notice that other visitors were waiting.
My apologies..Written 25 May 2023
