Go for a nature walk at the Gleniff Horseshoe, a hidden valley with totally stunning scenery, located in North County Sligo.
At the base of the Horseshoe route there is a renovated Millsite, with a lovely nature walk and sculpture trail. Picnic tables are there just waiting to be used!
This is also where you’ll find the ‘Magic Road’ in Sligo, where your car will roll back up the hill…!
Situated amid the beautiful landscape of Ballymote, Eagles Flying is Ireland’s largest sanctuary for birds of prey and owls. During the highly entertaining and interactive Bird Shows you can experience Eagles, Hawks, Falcons, Vultures and Owls flying right over your head or landing next to you.
Some of them can even be touched – but ask one of the birds trainers before you do! Watch different species of eagles hunting on prey-dummies in their natural environment and be astonished about the arrow like flight of the falcons and the high intelligence of the vultures.
There is also a children’s pet zoo with goats, lambs, donkeys, horses, guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, pot-bellied pigs.
