Bring a rock to lay on Queen Maeve’s grave! Not a tough climb, suitable to all. Short climb, but way worth it for the views at the top. Lovely coffee stand at the base, very friendly lady to chat to.

We climbed to the resting place of the legendary queen on a morning that ranged from foggy to misty to bucketing, making the short, still-challenging ascent from the parking lot on the southeast slope above Primrose Grange. Heartier folks will want to tackle the northwest...More
Climbing up the Knocknarea was one of the best experiences I made while staying in Sligo. There is no need to be sporty, its not too high. I recommend wraping up in warm clothes when going up there in wintertime. We had an amazing view...More
