A few months ago, we did a self-guided Sligo town walking tour, it took us several hours as we stopped to take lots of photos and read the tour booklet I had, it was interesting to read about the buildings and places and get the background.
Then during the Fleadh Cheoil last week, we got a guided walking tour with the Sligo Tourist office. It was engaging and informative and our guide John Ryan, was very knowledgeable and passionate. If you are a tourist, it’s a great way to get the lay of the land and a good summary of Sligo’s history and how other Irish and world events affected Sligo. It’s a great way to find out about a place, even if you have lived there all your life, you will learn something new about the town.
