Sligo is a hidden treasure (in my view). It is very much off the tourist trail which makes it a quiet place to visit but there is so much on offer. Climbing Knocknarea is most definitely a highlight. Please read full details below and click on this link for more details about Knocknarea and Strandhill.
**This walk is not accessible at all and should only be explored with children who are comfortable with climbing and walking for an hour plus. This can be extended to a minimum of 2 hours if you ascend one side, descend the other and then walk around the base trail. For those of you with lower mobility levels the base trail is a wonderful option to enjoy the splendid views. While this (base) trail is accessible the access to it is not, also it’s a linear walk. On our visit it was not very well signposted but it seemed newly open so no doubt these will be added at some point.
