Sligo information

Co. Sligo is as renowned for its ancient folklore and mysticism as it is for the lush surroundings of its countryside, and became the inspiration of Nobel Prize-winning Poet William Butler Yeats. Europcar’s Co. Sligo location is in the compact and contemporary town of Sligo.

Europcar Sligo is found on Old Dublin road, Carrowgobbadagh, just a few minutes south of Sligo City. Hiring a car from here not only allows the freedom to explore the amazing countryside but access to all the facilities and adventures, including world-class surfing off the Sligo coast, the region has to offer. Our location can cater to leisure customers and business customers with a van rental option also, availing of the flexible short, medium and long-term offered by Europcar.

The seaport of Sligo is the largest urban centre in Ireland’s north-west, and dates back to prehistoric times, as evidenced by the vast number of millennia-old, megalithic passage tombs and cairns found in the town and surrounding area. A bronze-age Henge has also been discovered on the outskirts, along with a causewayed enclosure from around 4000 BC, and the bay’s natural harbour was used by ancient Greek, Phoenician, and Roman Traders. Nowadays, Sligo has a strong connection to Irish music, hosts festivals throughout the year and, consequently, has a vibrant nightlife, particularly along the riverside. Coney Island, from where the New York resort gets its name, can be visited at low tide only but has a wishing well said to have been dug by Saint Patrick, while Sligo Abbey is built on the remains of its 13th-century predecessor that burned down in 1414. The town also features galleries, museums, many fine dining and shopping options and, of course, several memorials and devotions to Yeats.

Ten minutes south-west of the town is the Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery, one of the largest ancient burial sites in the world that features around 60 stone circles, passage tombs, and dolmens that predate the ruins at Newgrange by some 700 years. Excavations uncover more dramatic discoveries every day and it’s been found that the majority of these relics were built to be hit by direct sunlight at dawn, every All Hallows' Eve.

A few kilometres further west, if you can handle the 45-minute trek up to the summit of Knocknarea hill, you’ll find the massive cairn said to be the burial site of the legendary Queen Maeve – or Mab, in English. These 40,000 tons of stone are said to conceal a tomb of about the same size as Newgrange in Co. Meath, yet they have never been explored. Aside from this impressive structure, the location affords some impressive views of Benbulben, Rosses Point, and the Atlantic Ocean.

If you’re in the mood to discover some of the settings that inspired Yeats to write so poetically, Lough Glencar is 15 minutes north-east of Sligo. Well-known for its fishing and sparkling waterfall, the poet referred to this lake as ‘The Stolen Child’. Alternatively, a 20-kilometre drive to the south banks of Lough Gill will bring you achingly close to the tiny island of Innisfree. Its air of tranquillity is so peaceful; Yeats was moved to write The Lake Isle of Innisfree.
