Local Events & News
Sligo is fast becoming a top destination for both Sporting and Cultural events in Ireland. Strandhill boasts some of Europe's top waves for surfers and prides itself on being a part of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way. Sligo is also home to a number of Cultural Events such as the 2014/15 Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann , a worldwide celebration of traditional Irish Music. Also each summer Sligo hosts the impressive Sligo Summer Festival which has show-cased some brilliant acts including the Saw Doctors, the Riptide Movement and Sister Sledge! Also as Sligo was once the treasured adopted place of William Butler Yeats, the Yeats Summer School has proved to be a very popular attraction, attracting people from all over the globe, some of whom we have had the pleasure to accommodate.
