Sligo is a county that celebrates its independent spirit and a place steeped in history and mythology where you'll discover a creative tradition that lives in the music, art, poetry and expression of its people, made so famous by WB Yeats and others.

From clear lakes and rivers to stunning beaches and dramatic mountains such as majestic Ben Bulben, Sligo is a place where ancient sites like Carrowmore and Creevykeel, spectacular landscapes and rolling waves inspire stories, trails and adventures that will open your mind and invigorate your body. Here is a tiny selection of videos we like. Visit Sligo Tourism for a larger video vault.

Wildwest Tours

American/Irish Wild West Irish Tours provides travelers a portrait of small-town Celtic life and sweeping rural scenery that could only be furnished by someone who's lived there. The nine-day tour through Ireland’s west coast takes travelers to towns where farmers, poets, musicians, and storytellers still run the land and where Gaelic, Ireland’s traditional language, is spoken in daily life. Here they are chatting to Dervish lead singer Cathy Jordon about The Gathering 2013.
