Lough Gill, Sligo.

Here we are at Lough Gill, which is just outside the town of Sligo. The lake Isle of Innisfree is on this lake. For those of you who don't know how special this little Island is, Well the great poet WB Yeats wrote the famous poem, "The Isle of Innisfree" and is has been turned into a song. 

This lake has many islands and the drive around it is stunning, any time of the year. Both Leitrim and Sligo share this lake. 

Parkes Castle is sitting on the edge of the lake and that is where you will get the boat tour that brings you up and down the lake. "The Rose of Innisfree" is a 73 seater with full bar and snacks and you have a tour guide who will tell you everything you want to know about the lake and Sligo.

We have organized music in the  local pubs for our tour groups. These sessions are very welcoming to anyone who would like to sing a song, or dance, or indeed, join with an instrument. 

You will hear, for free, some of the finest musicians in the country.  These musicians have travelled the world with their music, but there's nothing like playing in the local pub with their friends.

We will bring you to all the stunning areas only the locals know.

You will see lakes, mountains, sea shores, forests, holy places, and much more. You will meet the locals who might just tell you some stories about where you are.

Relax and take in the fresh air. Go for a walk, take pictures and soak it all up.

On our travels we will see 11th and 12th century ruins of Castles, Abbeys, underground passage tombs, outdoor altars and famine grave sites.

You will go back in time listening to the history of these places. 

We will also be bringing you to restored castles and modern gravesites. "Oh but why are they bringing me to a gravesite" I can hear you say. Just wait and come with us, you will be amazed at what you see.
