The northwest of Ireland, and particularly south Sligo, offers plenty to do and see! Family-friendly days out, scenic road trips, and a huge scope for outdoor adventures are just some of the things we love about being based in the northwest.

Ballymote Castle

Just down the road from the Coach House Hotel, the Ballymote Castle is a medieval ruin and a testament to the village’s long history. Surrounded by a park, the castle is well worth a visit!

Eagles Flying

Families will love a visit to Ireland’s largest sanctuary for raptors and owls. Eagles Flying is home to over 100 eagles, vultures, hawks, and falcons, and over 450 birds and animals. Their interactive bird shows are sure to keep everyone entertained!

Keash Equestrian Centre

Why not spend an hour riding horses? The Keash Equestrian Centre offers group lessons for adults and children. It’s just five minutes down the road from the Coach House Hotel!

Carrowkeel Passage Tomb

This beautiful Neolithic passage tomb is one of fourteen cairns nestled in the hills of the Bricklieve mountage range. There is a small car park, allowing visitors access to four main cairns located on a plateau between the hills.

Caves of Keash

These visually striking caves are set in a limestone rockface in a hillside. There are sixteen caves, accessible by a somewhat strenuous hike up the western shoulder of Keshcorran Mountain. The caves have connections to many ancient legends, including heroic figures like Fionn MacCumhaill and High King Cormac Mac Airt. 

Coleman Music Centre

Located in Gurteen, Co Sligo, this is one of Ireland’s best-equipped Irish music centres. An informal vistors’ experience awaits, including an audio-visual presentation on the history of traditional Irish music and interactive touch screens.

Sligo Folk Park

This community-based attraction provides an insight into the true experiences of rural Irish people and their heritage at the turn of the 19th century. For anyone interested in Irish history, this is a must-visit!

Strandhill Beach

The buzzing little village of Strandhill offers a seaside promenade and beautiful beach walks. It’s also a great place to surf, or watch from a safe distance! On Sundays from 11am-4pm, the Strandhill People’s Market at the Strandhill Airport Hangar is well worth a visit.

Voya Seaweed Baths

In need of a little relaxation? Seaweed baths, facials, massages and more await you at Voya. Their secret ingredient is seaweed taken directly from the Atlantic Ocean.

Coney Island

This island, tucked into the bay between Strandhill and Rosses Point, is accessible to the mainland by car only when the tide is low. It’s home to a couple hundred people, and there’s a bar open on the island in summer!


Camping, golf, medieval ruins and seaside walks all make the village of Enniscrone (or Inishcrone) well worth a visit. It’s just almost an hour from Ballymote, but the coastal drive makes it very enjoyable.

Sligo Walks

Get out and explore some of Sligo’s beautiful trails, taking you past lakes, over mountains and along the sea! Few places offer such a wide variety of scenery, and it’s always best experienced on foot. Sligo Walks offer a guide to help you discover the best of Sligo’s trails.

Wild Atlantic Way

Ballymote is located right near the Wild Atlantic Way, which extends all along the western coast of Ireland. Head south past the villages of Easky and Enniscrone, or head north toward Donegal. You’ll be in for a stunning road trip whichever direction you go! 

The Fox’s Den

Just eight minutes down the road, The Fox’s Den is a family-run bar and lounge steeped in history, with a warm welcome and live music every weekend. With a pool table, a lively atmosphere and a great pint of Guinness, you’ll want to pass an evening here!

The Coach House Hotel is located in the town of Ballymote. We offer a full  A La Carte Restaurant Menu, 24-hour front desk reception, and free Wi-Fi. Room service is available to our guests, and we also offer family rooms.
