The town of Sligo sits where the Garavogue River meets Sligo Bay in the north of Ireland. It is a peaceful and relaxing place to go on a spa day or break, with visitors favouring cliff walks and exploring the historic sites.
Sligo is known for its local poet W.B. Yeats, the iconic Benbulben mountain, its beautiful landscapes and, more recently, as the setting for many of the scenes in the TV adaptation of Sally Rooney's best-selling novel, Normal People.
Having inspired writers from one century to the next, top attractions range from prehistoric tombs to lakeside strolls. You might be tempted to embark on a boat tour on Lough Gill or explore Sligo’s gothic monastery, dating to 1253. Blow the cobwebs away at the old seafaring village, Rosses Point, or take a tour of Parke’s Castle.
For spa lovers, Sligo has a particularly dear place in our hearts as the home of the spa and skincare brand, VOYA. It is famed for harvesting seaweed from the Irish coast in Strandhill, Co. Sligo and distilling it into nourishing skincare products.
