Many of Sligo’s attractions are located within easy driving distance of Ballymote, so it is a popular place to stay or visit on a day trip. Two of the most interesting places to see are the fabulous Ballymote Castle and the remarkable Sligo Folk Park. Also, well worth the effort are Achonry Monastery and Carrowkeel Cemetery.
There are a number of picturesque outdoor attractions here as well so make sure you enjoy the chance to get outdoors. See if you can spot some of the area’s special birdlife with a trip to a lake in the area like Lough Arrow.
Take a break from the tourist trail and work on your swing at the Tubbercurry Golf Club in Tobbercurry.
Finding somewhere suitable to stay in Ballymote couldn’t be easier. If you're looking for great service and a comfortable bed, check out the Markree Castle Hotel, Collooney, the Castle Dargan Hotel, Ballygawley, and the Cromleach Lodge Country House Hotel, Castlebaldwin.
