Gerard Higgins and his Sligo Tours provide excellent options to see the beautiful surroundings of Sligo town. I guess that even having a car, it would not be easy to find many charming sites that are indeed hidden from the occasional visitor. People often come here because of W.B.Yeats, but my mom’s and my primary interest was the nature (sorry, I am not familiar with Yeats works...). In just four hours or a bit more Gerard took us to Yeats grave, Rosses Point, Drumcliff, Mullaghmore, Creevykeel (pre-historic burial chamber), Glencar lake and waterfall, Hazelwoods. At least these are the places I am able to recall. My favourites were Mullaghmore coast with stunning seascapes and Glencar lake with charming pastoral views. Gerard is a good commentator and guide. The tour cost us Euro 30 per hour and, given the personalised service and the rich itinerary, it seemed fairly reasonable.
In short, I liked Sligo not less than Connemara!
