Don’t forget the Sligo Summer Festival (8th and 9th August).
The Hawk’s Well Theatre have music, plays, shows and exhibitions taking place.
As for the pubs most of them have live music sessions taking place during the week.
I’ve been to a couple in Hargadons and The Swagman.
Mc Garrigle’s (also home to the Spike Sligo Comedy Club), Fureys and Earleys, Shoot the Crows and Raffertys are great pubs for music.
Sligo-Music is a good site to find out what music is on. Velvet Room is a lovely nightclub and they run Kieran Quinn’s theme nights.
There is also a lovely waterfall across the road from the old mill. Don’t just stay on dry land in Sligo, it’s well worth checking out some of the water adventures.Clevery Mill is wonderful for food too but only open certain times so check before you go. Mullaghmore is the place to be for the ‘big waves’ when surfers come from all over the world for the Tow-in surf sessions.Streedagh is a beautiful beach in North Sligo, the rocks are covered in fossils, it’s a popular location for surfers and it’s also the location of three Spanish Armada wrecks.I went on a Heritage on Horseback trek with Seatrails and had a wonderful time.Take a drive or a cycle around the Gleniff Horseshoe and Ballintrillick.
You will find out about the Yeats, Spike Milligan and Dracula connections with Sligo and a whole lot more. In my opinion Carrowkeel is one of the most underated places in Sligo, everyone talks about the Carrowmore megalithic cemetery but I think Carrowkeel is a very special place.
