Sligo dating site
Sligo is one of Ireland's most beautiful regions, an endless inspiration to William Butler Yeats and his artist brother, Jack B Yeats.
Join us here, on a six-day tour of Sligo, Mayo and County Fermanagh, to discover a landscape of open grassland, dramatic mountains and mysterious waters.
Voted the best place to live in Ireland in 2012, Westport sits on the southeast corner of Clew Bay beneath the slopes of Croagh Patrick, Ireland's 'holy mountain'.
Wander around the harbour to the Quay area where the old coastguard station and warehouses now house bars, cafes and restaurants, or stroll along the tree-lined Mall.
After a self-guided multimedia tour you'll have the chance to see master craftsmen at work in the weaving shed before we continue to Westport.From there we'll visit Florence Court, where a guided tour will bring the history of this fine Georgian house to life. The museum here includes local ceramics dating back to 1857 and a short tour will take you through the production areas and give you the chance to chat to some of the potters who work there today.Parke's Castle, on the north-western shore of Lough Gill, is our first stop this morning.Today's tour begins with a trip to Glencar Waterfall, made famous in Yeats' 'The Stolen Child', and ends with a stop at Drumcliffe Church, where the poet's grave is marked with a simple headstone.
After time to explore this beautifully restored 17th-century plantation castle we'll board The Rose of Innisfree for a short cruise around the "lake isle" that was the subject of Yeats' most famous poem.
Once back in Sligo you'll have the afternoon you yourselves, though you may like to join us for an optional city tour and a trip along the Wild Atlantic Way to Rosses Point.
