The Rose of Innisfree
Lough Gill, an eight kilometres long limestone lake, lying just east of Sligo Town, is a place of utter beauty, and one of the must-see Sligo attractions when visiting the West Coast of Ireland. Steeped in myth and legend, and rich in incredible views, it quickly became one of Sligo’s top-rated tourist attractions and must-do activity on every adventurer’s bucket list. The lake is mainly situated in County Sligo, but partly in County Leitrim.
It features underwater cliffs, and it is listed as a protected site under the EU Habitats Directive. Lough Gill supports several protected species of lamprey, as well as Atlantic salmon, and otter.
From Parke’s Castle in Leitrim, overlooking the lake, to Cottage Island and Church Island, Lough Gill offers generous nature’s trails, viewing points, and photo opportunities. The lake makes for a beautiful drive at any time of the year.
