Sligo: from the mountains to the sea

Sligo photo from ILT image bank scaled 400 wideJohn Michael McDonagh’s latest film Calvary is set in County Sligo. Although it tackles difficult subject matter the film is also very humorous and features a range of complex and realistic characters. It works well on so many levels including giving the viewer fantastic visuals of County Sligo’s majestic mountains and coastline.

A stunning county, it is well known for its strong connections with poet William Butler Yeats. There are terrific beaches for walking, swimming and surfing, seaweed spas, delicious restaurants, traditional pubs and mountain walks. If this all sounds like your cup of tea, why not holiday in our Schoolhouse in Annaghmore and get to know Sligo.
