Stunning new Sligo Tourism video shows why ‘west is best’

Sarah Finnan

Sligo Tourism has released a stunning new video; proving once and for all why Ireland is deserving of its title as the Emerald Isle.

Part of an off-season marketing campaign, the aim is to encourage families to opt for staycations over trips abroad.

And it makes for quite a compelling argument.

Highlighting all that the west coast has to offer, it seems that Sligo really does have it all. From horse-riding in Mullaghmore to surfing in Strandhill, to watching birds of prey there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

The list doesn’t stop there either with a wide range of other activities to cover all interests and abilities including guided hikes, beach walks and stand up paddling tours.

Not to mention plenty of award-winning food spots – unsurprising considering Sligo’s thriving restaurant scene. Check out the Sligo Tourism website to plan out your next holiday itinerary.

Plenty of reasons to head west.
