Visitor Attractions in Mayo, Sligo, Donegal, Cavan, Leitrim, Roscommon and Monaghan
Ireland’s North West has been a little off the usual tourist trail, but this is starting to change with the growing popularity of the Wild Atlantic Way driving route. Visitors to the region have come to realise that it offers a wonderful opportunity to explore a uniquely beautiful part of Ireland.
Rimmed by the Atlantic, the area presents a great variety of scenery, from dramatic coastlines and beaches to fish-filled rivers and lakes, and endless mountains and boglands. Attractions such as Ceide Fields, a 5,000-year-old farm preserved in a blanket of bog;
Glenveagh National park with its herds of red deer and scottish style castle surrounded by landscaped gardens, Croagh Patrick and Knock Shrine, two prime places of pilgrimage in Mayo. The entire region offers a wealth of historic, literary, and cultural activities and well worth a visit when touring Ireland.
Here are a few highlights to whet your appetite:
