Things to Do from Your Tranquil Home-away-from-Home in Ireland's Magical Northwest:
Bird Watching
This area is a paradise for birds and waterfowl. Some of our land has been recently designated as special area of conservation. Barnacle Geese visit us every year from mid-October to late April. A walkway (for able and disabled) provides direct access to view the geese. Close by (10 minutes) is the Ballygilgan Nature Reserve (Lissadell) (http://ballygilgannaturereserve.com). And Bird Watch Ireland / Sligo site (http://birdwatchireland.ie or http://sligobirding.com) provide up to date recent sighting of various birds and waterfowl in the Sligo area.

Arts and Culture
This area is notorious for its artists from writers, poets, painters, and fairy makers, and many have set up home here. The Model (Niland Gallery), Hamilton Gallery, Yeat’s Society, Hawkswell, Blue Raincoat Theatre, the Factory, and more are within 20 minutes drive.

Surfing
Go to Lislarry (about 6km) for some of the best waves in the northwest. Or go further to afield to Bundoran (http://www.turfnsurf.ie orhttp://bundoransurfschool.com) or Strandhill (http://www.strandhillsurfschool.com) and experience the thrills of surfing on the big Atlantic waves (both 30 minutes away). Or the Adventure Sligo site (http://www.adventuresligo.com) can provide additional links.

Sailing / Boating / Canoeing/Kayaking
If you have your own boat (sail boat, rib, canoe, etc) bring it along and we will help you launch it from the recently renovated Raghley pier. You can explore and relax in tranquility of Drumcliffe Bay. The boat can be stored in our sheds. Other popular activities include kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding. (http://www.adventuresligo.com/water/kayaking).
Within 20 minutes there are 2 sailing clubs (http://mullaghmoresailingclub or http://sligoyaughtclub.ie) offering beginners and experienced sailing courses for juniors and adults.

Horseriding
If you own your own horse(s), you can have a unique holiday by bringing him/her/them with you. Access to the local beaches (Ardtarmon Strand or The Golden Strand or Tra Bui) can be provided through the owner’s land. Then the horse(s) can graze under your watchful eye. All options considered. Contact us for more information.
Alternatively, Island View offers horseriding for all the family year round (http://islandviewridingstables.com). This family run business is located about 15 minutes away and offers beach rides, trekking, lessons, and carriage riding. Use these links for additional riding stables: http://www.irelandonhorseback.com or http://www.markreestables.com) in the Sligo area.

Golfing
Ireland is renowned for its golf courses and Rosses’ Point is no exception. The County Sligo Golf Club at Rosses’ Point (http://countysligogolfclub.ie) is ranked in the top 10 links courses in Ireland. The club boasts renowned visitors and champions, Rory McElroy and Tom Watson. Or you can go to Berties Pitch and Putt (http://www.bertiespnp.co.nr) or the Tyeconnell Pitch and Putt course in Bundoran.

Fishing
There are plenty of excellent fishing points on the Raghley peninsula, where you can catch mackerel, pollock, bollin or if you are lucky sea trout. Raghley Harbour is located ¼ mile away. Spoil yourself with some fresh lobster and crab caught by local fishermen (available on request). Or try your hand at getting some razor fish or rock fishing. Crab fishing off the pier provides fun for everyone. In Rosses’ Point (http://www.sligoboatcharters.com) (Darryl Ewing can pick you up at Raghley Pier, depends on tide) or Mullahmore (http://www.offshore.ie or http://www.inishmurrayislandtrips.com) charter boats are available for the serious fishermen. We can help with any bookings.

Walking/Hill Walking
Exploring North Sligo on foot can be a beautiful way to see the county. Various magical walks include: Lissadell House and Woods; Glencar Lake and Waterfall; Streedagh Point and Beach; Knocknarea and Queen Maeve's Cairn, Glennif Horseshoe at the foot of Ben Bulben to name a few. Go to http://www.sligotourism.ie and/or http://www.irishtrails.ie/Trail/Benbulben-loop or http://www.coillteoutdoors.ie for more information on mountain walks, nature trails, coastal walks and more.

Shopping and Restaurants:
Sligo offers shopping with a difference. There is a good mix of the extraordinary shops with hand-crafted pieces, the shops passed down through the generations and the more typical shops. Wooden sculpture by Michael Quirke and hand-crafted jewelry at The Cat and the Moon offer some unusual items while Mullaney’s and Moffits have been in the center of town for generations. The shopping centers provide a good mix on newer shops. Café’s, restaurants, and bistros are plentiful in Sligo town. Closer to 'home' there are several tasty meals at Lang's Bar and Restaurant, Yeat’s Tavern (or Davis’); and Henry’s Restaurant (within 10-15 minutes of our house).

The perfect vacation location for touring, exploring and relaxing. Start your magical holiday looking out on Sligo bay, or walk to the nearby fairy forts for some amazing views. Several beaches are located within 1km. Lissadell House, woods, and beach are only 5km away. We are located in Ballymulderry, Ballinfull, North County Sligo, about 16km from Sligo town.

Tourist attractions include: W.B. Yeats' grave (12km), Streedagh Beach and Spanish Armada (8km), Glencar Lake and Waterfall (26km), Parke's Castle (28km), Mullaghmore (15km), Sligo Abbey (16km), Eagle's Flying Raptor Center (35km), and more.

While Strandhill (28km) and Bundoran (40km) are the more popular surfing locations, the waves in nearby Lislarry (5km) or Streedagh (10km) cannot be bet either. Mullaghmore and Rosses' Point provide additional water sporting activities.

Raghly Harbour is within 2km and local fishermen can provide you with fresh lobster and crab on request. There is an abundance of rock fishing areas within 2km as well. Or deep sea fishing may suit the fishing enthusiast and we can help arrange evening or day outings with Sligo Boat Charters (www.sligoboatcharters.com).

The West of Ireland Championship Golf course in Rosses' Point is only 15-20 minute drive (20km).

The dynamic limestone Benbulben mountain provides visual appeal as well as appeal to walkers and hill climbers. And while you are at it climb Knocknarea to visit Queen Maeve's cairn.

Whatever your interests - boating, fishing, water sports, horse riding, arts and culture - we would be happy to help you.

The local shop and pubs are less than 3km from our holiday home. One of the pubs, Ellen’s Pub, has traditional music sessions on most Friday evenings (visiting musicians welcome). Larger shops and filling stations are available in Grange village, about 10km away.
