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.

    This would be a must for families , children would love it. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly, you get a chance to actually touch the birds if you want to and get to observe them up close in their cages. We saw a very playful golden ferret which I believe is quite rare. I gave it an excellent rating for that reason but as an older single traveler I probably wouldn't have gone, however I would recommend it.

    My advice if you are not particularly fit is to climb from the non-coast side. It can be slippier/muckier but I think less demanding than the new steps on the coast side.
    Great view from the top and do read about Queen Maeve before you climb as it makes it much more meaningful.

    Beautiful mountain! We began the climb but did not finish due to time constraints. The surrounding area is beautiful as well.

    This is not a sandy beach but it is a fabulous beach for surfing. Plenty of cafes and restaurants for you to get refreshments. A lovely place to spend a day.

    The HotBox Sauna is the best activity in Rossespoint. It’s a lovely log fire sea side sauna right next to a coffee shop, a restaurant and the tidal pool! Worth visiting any day any time of the year!!

    This place re-ignited my interest in ancient history! I didn’t exactly know what I was getting into, as my wife made the plans to visit. We visited on a typically misty Irish day, and something about tromping around with umbrellas, visiting ancient tombs, made the place more special. (I’m sure visiting on a sunny day would be lovely too!). The displays in the visitors center were very helpful to review first. High-quality explanations. The staff member at the front desk was also SO helpful in answering all our questions. He pointed out that some of the images in the displays need to be updated, because they picture blond, blue-eyed ancestors, whereas the people living on this land at the time would have been brown-skinned.

    I’d highly recommend this place. Visiting it early in our trip provided me with a grounding in pre-history that helped me to appreciate the rest of the ancient sites we explored.

    Lots of ruins of abbeys in Ireland. That is for sure. This was another good one. Well worth seeing.

    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 beach

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
