      Hi Deborah we may do somewhere in our past pics so we will take a look for you

  • We visited Sligo for the 2nd time since moving to County Leitrim today and since we’d promised our 6-year-old daughter that we’d taker her to a park, I unwisely chose Seaview Park thinking it sounded nice. I definitely should have picked a different park. We were very underwhelmed. Although we could see the beauty in the grassy area, etc, there was not much to play on and the surrounding area was rather dull looking. I wouldn’t recommend this park for someone who is looking for a nice playground.
