Sligo Walking Website Launch

The new dedicated walking website for Sligo will be officially launched by Minister Michael Ring T.D. on Thursday 15th November at 2.30pm in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Sligo. The website is a compendium of all fifty two walking trails in County Sligo and has something to offer everyone from the beginner to the more avid walker.

The new website is a collaborative effort between Sligo County Council, Sligo LEADER Partnership, Sligo Tourism and Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership. The new website will be a really useful resource in terms of the marketing and promotion of walking tourism in County Sligo. It will serve to position Sligo as a key walking destination.

The new website features a wide range of walks including loop walks, way-marked ways and forest walks from around the County; with stunning photographs, detailed maps and information, walkers will be spoilt for choice.

With the continued growth of adventure and walking tourism in Ireland, the new website will serve as a great asset in promoting the walking product on offer in Sligo. Considerable labour and expenditure has been invested in the development of new and existing walking trails in recent years in Sligo, through the support of the office of the Rural Recreation Officer. This dedicated website will promote the best that Sligo has to offer in terms of walking.
