Leaving Belfast behind us we traveled quickly toward the west. We were rushing to keep an appointment for horseback riding on the beach all the way on the other side of the island, and in another country. This time we followed the GPS faithfully. It was along this leg of our journey that we discovered that doing so was not necessarily a good idea. …
Ireland Day 8 Today we left our quiet little hostel out in the middle of nowhere for a busy day of sights and driving. Our first stop being the Marble Arch Caves. First thought was that if you had been to any cave in Australia, not to bother having a look at these. At 7 pound per head for the tour, thats about $16AU! The tour lasted an hour with a …
... area as it is a nesting zone for over 20 species of seabirds. It is also home to O'Brien Tower, a medieval castle for the O'Brien family that ruled over the area for many years. We left the area on our way to Galway along a corkscrew road. Along the way, we were able to view an area called the Burren. The Burren is a huge limestone plateau, covering over 200 ...

... called Carrowmore, which is one of the oldest Stone Age burial grounds in Ireland, older even than Newgrange. For such an important archeological site, I expected it to be thronging with crowds. Nope, it was deserted. And it was very impressive -- several mounds and dolmens spread across two (still active) sheep paddocks. Some of the site is on private land, although curated by the government due to its importance. It's a little out of the way, and took quite a bit to find, but ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Sligo
Went to this hotel in July 2005 after recommendation from a friend.
Hotel easily found - beautiful site. Found the hotel to be well presented, clean, large rooms (we had a suite which u could happily have lived in). Reception staff very friendly on arrival as were all staff although we found that staff in restaurant could have been more attentive during our evening meal. Food very good although quite pricey for evening meal!
Hotel lacks atmosphere but this is probably due to its newness. Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending
Beautiful, classy hotel
Fabulous hotel - no faults at all
Everything is brand new from the gym and pool to the restauarant and bedrooms
We were upgraded to a suite :0) with a seperate lounge and kitchen area - lovely!
Food in both the Sinergie and Kudos restaurants was excellent.
Deals are to be had on the internet - our stay for 2 nights B&B and one evening meal and a massage each was only £298 Euros in total!
Excellent value for money - would go back tommorrow!
I stayed in this new 4 star hotel with my husband and 2 young children the August Bank Holiday weekend. We got a great deal at €165 per adult and children staying free. This also included one dinner.We were upgraded to a suite and it was just fantastic! We had a huge bed in the room and an adjoining room with sofabed, kitchen with microwave, fridge and delph/cutlery and dining table, comfy armchairs and another TV. Our children are both very small so it meant we could crack open a bottle of wine wnd have a romantic evening while they slept soundly in the adjoining room. There was a fantastic room service menu available 24 hours. As this was peak season there was some delay, we noticed, on Saturday in rooms being available for arriving guests. However, there was free tea and coffee, cocktail sausages, sandwiches etc for arriving guests . I thought it was a lovely touch. For guests with children there was a supervised play area in the hotel and movies shown in the evenings. This meant parents could dine in comfort alone! Guests were welcome to use the playroom at other times, once they remained there with their children. The hotel is a nice 15 minute walk from town. It is such a beautiful building and the decor is very calming. Apt I suppose when you consider it was once a psychiatric hospital! I promise you there is not a hint of it's former life to be seen!!!! The leisure facilities were beyond reproach also, and spotlessly clean. This was one of the busieat times to visit an Irish hotel but I never once got a sense of the staff feeling under pressure or stressed. The whole stay was very relaxed. I'm sure the prices may go up as the hotel gets better known but I'll definately stay here again and recommend the Clarion Sligo to anyone.
We had the pleasure of staying at the Clarion Hotel Sligo last Saturday night, and I have to say it was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. I have been in the hotel industry for 8 years and have stayed in lots of top class hotels around the world, and I can easily say this was up there with the best.
Fantastic Weekend Break
We have just arrived home from a fantastic weekend at the Clarion Hotel Sligo. The setting, facilities and welcoming staff were outstanding. We look forward to another visit in the near future. We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.
We found this hotel without any problems as it is on the main road (Mental Hospital Road!) from Enniskillen. The letter we received prior to departure informed us that our apartment would be ready for 2pm. On arrival at the hotel shortly after 3pm we were told our room would be ready in 30 mins. This 30 minutes became 90 minutes of wheeling an increasingly grouchy 1 year old around the hotel grounds until we were belatedly offered a complimentary drink from the bar.
We'd booked to stay 3 nights in a double room at 99Euro per night.. then on getting to our room we discovered we'd mysteriously been upgraded to a suite with a separate living room/dining area/kitchenette which was brilliant!
If you're looking for a hotel in Sligo, this is the place to stay. Top class. No complaints. Staff great, food lovely, rooms clean, pool relaxing.
After a recommendation by a collegue who had spent the previous weekend in this hotel with his family, my husband and I decided at the last minute to book this hotel for the Bank Holiday weekend break.
Gorgeous Hotel 4star+
Stayed here for one nite in april and was very impressed. Got a great deal with allukhotels. Got a double room for 85Euro. Also checked their website direct think its under quality hotels and can a triple room for just 99Euro. The hotel is brand new. It used to be a mental hospital but dont let that put you off. Its got a very modern design with dark wood and cream and brown decor. The bedrooms were sparkling clean. They also have a leisure centre and spa. Myself and my husband booked in for a shiatsu massage the next morning and they gave it free of charge as they said the treatment rooms were up and running yet. The location is a bit outside the town you would probably need to get a taxi or drive into the town centre.
