Wear good walking shoes and join the group tour. The tour guide is very knowledgeable about ancient tribes of the Sligo area. There is an indoor museum and restrooms available. Take advantage of the restroom before heading to Knocknarea to see Queen Mauve's tomb.

We came on this by chance, it turned out to be the kids highlight in Sligo, it might not be for everyone but it is a great way to find out about the history and literature of the area.

We found this site quite boring, the brochures do not give you enough information for each pile of stones !
