Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    While at a mid term stay in Sligo with my family we visited the Eagle flying. This was a great experience, my kids are aged 7 and 4 and they loved it. Aisling was our guide, she knew her stuff and she has such passion for what she does.

    Everyone if they want can have a turn of letting the birds perch on your arm. The petting area is small but plenty of animals to feed & pet. We all really enjoyed this and would recommend it as a place to visit.

    The car park is a little bit of a walk away so give yourself a little extra time to arrive. It was pretty mucky because of the extensive rain fall so bring wellies if visiting in the winter.

    A fairly hard hike to the top on very well made gravel and wooden steps. The wooden steps are spiked so provide good grip but make sure that you have good walking shoes, especially if it's rained anytime recently - it's West Ireland, it's always raining!
    Getting down is a bit more daunting than going up but nothing too bad. There are a couple of ways up though so I can only speak for the coastal route coming from the Sligo Rugby Club.
    The views are fantastic at the top and Queen Maeve's resting place is worth seeing - no idea how they got all those huge rocks up there!
    It's windy, make sure you're suitably clothed and ready but it's worth it!

    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.

    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.

    Hazelwood is beautiful in the fog! The walk takes about an hour - shorter if you are there for exercise; longer if you are taking lots of pictures.

    We walked the village loop walk, down by the river, to the clan castle and back. We got to see a friendly donkey and horse on the way out…watched the surfers negotiate big-ass wave at the pier and had a quick look at the history of the clan castle before we returned.

    A nice quick, stop on the WAW.

    We picnicked here on a cloudy day. Deep forest, a nice view up the lake, and shelter from the rain shower. An easy walk down to Lough Gill and a welcome escape from the narrow, winding roads.

    Lough Gara riding stables can be summed up by the wonderful experience provided by the owners and staff. This is truly a wonderful experience, our children have never been happier than when they we’re taking part in the pony camp or the birthday parties hosted here. I cannot praise Adrienne, Jimmy and staff enough. They really do provide a wonderful caring and memorable experience. We have gone here for the last 3 or 4 years and would recommend anyone to take part in the experience. Thank you so much Jimmy and Adrienne

    Perfect for rainy days. Visited this midweek with my 6 and 13 year olds. 6 year old went to Funny Bones and 13 year old enjoyed the climbing wall in Vertigo. Fun couple of hours spent. Only downside was the heat! Turn it down guys.........too warm/humid in there!
