North West Ireland – Donegal & Sligo holidays

The rugged and beautiful wildernesses of Mayo, Sligo and Donegal form a corner of Europe that somehow the rush of the modern world overlooked.

Their rolling mountains, towering cliffs, swathes of white sandy beaches and tiny villages have been left to their own devices, today as romantically remote as they have been for generations. The town of Donegal sits where the river Eske flows into Donegal Bay. The tweed shops and cosy pubs of this bustling market town make it a perfect point from which to explore the wilder North West.
Sligo is most famous for being the home of W.B. Yeats, but more recently it has become world renowned for its superb surfing opportunities, but there is even more to explore: music filled pubs, seaweed baths and ancient mythical monuments. Westport in county Mayo is seen as an adventure hub in Ireland. With its gracious Georgian town centre, this small town boasts cheerful, multi-coloured shopfronts, jostling for attention with an attractive selection of pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants.
Smaller rural towns and villages are scattered along the coast such as Leenane, Letterfrack, Strandhill, Bundoran, Ardara or Dunfanaghy all home to great pubs and colourful characters in Ireland’s North West.
