Overview: The Sligo App seeks to highlight the best of the rich heritage of Sligo Town and its environs. We bring the Sligo area to life via pictures, texts and audio material about the various points of interest along the way.

The Yeats Country Drive guides bring you to each and every spot that William Butler Yeats is associated with in Counties Sligo and Leitrim. It tells you about his times there, what inspiration he got from the locations and of course we have some of his wonderful poetry narrated for you by talented actors and even the great man himself.

It’s been designed as a free two day driving tour assuming you'll be starting around 9am.
Day One takes in Knocknarea, Carrowmore, the Lake Isle of Inishfree and Lough Gill, Parkes Castle and Dromahair. Day Two brings you to Glencar lake and waterfall, the mythical site where Diarmaid was betrayed under Ben Bulben, Lissadell House, Drumcliffe where Yeats is buried, Rosses Point and Sligo Town itself. In the year that marks Yeats's 150th birthday, salute the man with the help of our audio tours.

We have also included a guide along the coast from Drumcliffe to Donegal Town as well as our highly regarded bundled guides for Donegal Town and a lot more besides in the hinterland. With these guides, we hope to ensure you enjoy the whole of the north west in style.

Tips: Do not use this app while driving. We suggest that a passenger accesses the information and guides the driver along. Please familiarise yourself with the numbered route in advance and ensure you read the directions given where it’s suggested you stop. All guides are subject to acceptance of our Licence Agreement. We hope you enjoy them!
