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.

    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.

    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.

    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.)

    I went to the first session of the Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership 'Skate for your Gear' last night. I was terrified at first, but It was brilliant! Neville was so good, kind and patient with us all. He explained everything and guided us safely through our first tentative steps. I cant wait to go back next week :) Thanks so much Neville.

    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!

    What a beautiful day surfing! Seamus and Sean were excellent instructors, encouraging our group to have fun while still providing plenty of tips and tricks to improve our surfing. As multi-level group, Seamus and Sean accommodated everyone’s needs and made the lesson productive for everybody. I can’t wait to come back to Ireland and surf in Sligo again!

    This was my third sea trail with Auriel. It was another wonderfully informative way to spend three hours learning about Sligo & in this case the Spanish Armada. Auriel ensured we were always comfortable as she shared her deep knowledge of this beautiful part of Ireland.

    Had a lovely time fishing with Daryl, he was so welcoming and friendly. We had never fished or was on a boat before and he was a pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend Daryls boat for a family with a young child. It was the highlight of our stay in Sligo

    29 March who'd have thought we"d be bobbing in Atlantic waves for a few hours. David provided toastie 5mm wet suits, helmets, gloves and booties. He knew where to pick out the best waves, arranged the lesson for the ideal tidal conditions, gave us excellent instruction and most of all the thrill of 'nearly'standing up several times. All with the backdrop of beautiful Sligo bay, the dunes and the blue sky. I highly recommend this for an afternoons entertainment.
