A haven for all kinds of explorers, whether you're more keen to stay on dry land or want to dive into the briny deep, Sligo is so much more than your average seaside county.

Boasting an impressive stretch of the longest coastal driving route in the world, The Wild Atlantic Way, you know you're getting your money's worth when you decide to take a trip to Yeats Country.

Here's why.

1. Because the views could even tame The Wild Atlantic Way

3. The whole county is built on the lyrical brilliance of Yeats

With reference to his genius dotted everywhere.

4. Because it looks like this on a sunny day...

15. You meet plenty of friends

And, you may even get to take a trip out to the famous Tír na nÓg.

16. Because you get to feel like you're on the edge of the world

Glance as far as you can glance, and then some.

Or, have your Titanic moment over the Atlantic. Important.

17. And finally, you can feel like you've travelled far

Even though you've barely left your doorstep...
