Sligo is a large and busy market town on the short River Garavogue, which drains Lake Gill into the sea. The town is surrounded by fine and varied countryside: green and wooded valleys, high mountains and sandy seaside beaches. Rosses Point (An Ros), on its sandy peninsula jutting out into Drumcliff Bay, has a championship golf course and two beautiful beaches for bathing and wind-surfing.
