“Hidden gem”
Review of Gleniff Horseshoe

Gleniff Horseshoe
Reviewed 3 November 2014 via mobile

Why do we all not know about this ... If in Sligo you must drive this route. We found it by accident and it really needs to be much more publicised and signposted. .. It is stunning and make sure you find the magic hill. We only found it with local help (which added to the charm of the drive) .. finish with a visit to Langs pub in Grange

I recently visited Sligo and i was told about the Horseshoe which is a scenic part of the glencar waterfall. I thought is would be the usually view but was i wrong. Spectacular was the only word to describe it. I was never as close to the edge of a mountain and also at a cliff top. It is only a few minutes from Sligo .I also visited W.B YEATS grave on the way into Sligo from the Bundoran side .It was a lovely day trip and would recommend everyone to visit these gems near Sligo .

This is such a lovely drive with fantastic views and scenery. There is a few places to stop and park to take in views and take photos. Also there is a lovely picnic area.Well worth a visit

This short route begins and ends at the little hamlet of Ballintrillick, a couple of miles from the main Bundoran to Sligo road.

Drive clockwise for the best views, and you will be rewarded with sheer grandeur.
The ghostly valley is almost uninhabited now, due to famine and emigration. The many ruined cottages bear witness to this.
There is an eerie silence as the mountains loom overhead - very atmospheric!

The road surface has been improved recently. I've been coming here all my life, and this haunting, somewhat sad place still delights me.
I am confident it will become one of your favourite places in Ireland.

Beautiful drive into a horseshoe shaped glen formed on 3 sides by dramatic hills. Area decently marked off the main road. Want to make sure the hills are visible before starting. Sheep (and lambs in the Spring) vistas, narrow road, and old moss covered buildings and rock walls are at every turn.
