Discover Ireland’s Northwest

Yeats’ Country, as County Sligo is affectionately called in allusion to William Butler Yeats, could be described as the gateway to Ireland’s northwest. Sights around Sligo City include Classiebawn Castle on Mullaghmore Head, table mountain Ben Bulben and the megalithic tomb of Carrowmore – true icons of the Emerald Isle. The further north you go, the rougher the sparsely populated landscape of Donegal becomes. Here you find the original Ireland – rugged and untamed.

Steep cliffs rise along the rugged coastline at Slieve League. They are among the highest sea cliffs in Europe. At Malin Beg you find yourself on one of Ireland’s most unspoilt coastlines and the wild and romantic peninsulas of Horn Head, Fanad and Inishowen have the most beautiful beaches of the island.
