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.

    Really cool beach area with many Surfers and Surfer schools going on. The area has a bunch stores and restaurants for food and drink. Fun Place!

    I have circumvented this lough by bike and car and it really is a lovely part of the world. Care needs to be taken as some of the drivers I met don't think that there may be another car around the corner and the roads can be narrow. Worth doing though.

    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.

    I’m sure the golfing is great! but I was here with my wife for an outstanding Sunday lunch. Everything from the decor to the food it was top class. We were delighted with the service and chatting with the Chef Beranice who made us feel so welcome. The food was delicious and especially loved the roast spuds. We look forward to our return visit.

    This is a really beautiful and peaceful walk around the stunning Lough Talt. The walk around the trail is beautiful and well done, the loop goes onto the main road which is dangerous and really busy so it might be an idea for families to just walk back along the trail. The views are stunning. The turn into the lake comes kind of suddenly and it’s narrow enough so take care. Plenty of car parking there too.

    Pick a nice day and a picnic to make the most of this spot. But, like a lot of good things about Sligo it is not easily findable or sign posterd.

    Was recommended by a friend to visit, very interesting experience and well worth travelling to. Entry into the mine itself is not a difficult task and could be undertaken by all ages, it is wet so leave your flip flops in the car, but I would say ordinary footwear is fine, I found it a little cold but others were wearing shorts. Guide Gerry was great, due to present restrictions a little hard to understand, masks visors etc, but felt completely safe during the entire experience. Lovely soup, sandwiches and coffee afterwards.

    This is a clearly marked and well maintained loop walk around the headland. It provides a real taste of the coast in this remote part of Ireland. It’s only about 4km/3miles. A few info boards provide all the local detail you’ll need to enjoy this walk.

    Hi All, FYI.... Queen Medb's Activity Farm is CLOSED. The phone number advertised is incorrect. If you phone you get private residence which has nothing to do with the centre...

    Charming walking Area by restaurants & shops along the river in Sligo. Beautiful area on both sides of the river. Many pubs, hotels & bridges to cross from side to side

    Decent pitch and putt with a lot of interesting holes. Friendly staff in club shop. Courses uses the contours well. The hole where you drive over the wall particularly fun. Greens could be better and when we went fairways could have done with a further mow, but for a reasonable price you have a good test of your wedge skills. Holes around the 60-100yard mark. Clubs and balls provided. We got taxi out there and walked back. About 7 min drive and 45 min walk from Sligo town.

    This was my second time booking the tour on Lough Gill and it was just as fantastic as the first time. A combination of things makes it wonderful, the location, the equipment but mainly the people. Each time, from the booking to the welcome and on to the tour has been amazing. The guides are so knowledgeable about not just kayaking, but also history, geography, ecology, the flora and fauna of the area and much, much more. Our group this time had an age range of 11 to 81 and everyone is still talking about the great time despite the fact that it was lashing and freezing! If that’s not a positive sign then I don’t know what is!
