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.

What travellers are saying
- 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!Written 21 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- 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.

- Beautiful island. Lovely walk around island. Kids love to picnic and explore the island. Very safe place. So peaceful and quiet and full of nature. Could stay all day down at the beachWritten 25 February 2023
- So much history, it’s a very short walk off the side of the main road. Walk up the path near the tree full of rubbishWritten 30 October 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
- On first ever visit to Strandhill heard there was a market on so decided to check it out and we really enjoyed it. Excellent layout and lots of outdoor seating. Would recommend.Written 11 June 2021
- 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
- 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
- A fabulous market with a great selection of stalls, definitely well worth a visit. It’s great for home made baking and lovely hand made crafts. I particularly liked the stall that had a great selection of crocheted items.Written 30 April 2022
- 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.Written 26 November 2022
- The most friendly, informative and useful heritage center visited in our 3 week travels through 6 counties. Padraig was a delight....bright, helpful and helped us so much with our ancestor search. I would highly recommend anyone who is visiting the Sligo area to search for their Irish roots to stop by this heritage center.Written 2 August 2023
