Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Sligo, Ireland - Updated 2020

airbnb Sligo, Ireland

Located in the western part of Ireland, Sligo draws its own share of tourists annually thanks to its natural, cultural, and historic attractions. Benbulben, otherwise known as the Table Mountain, is arguably the most well-known of all the landmarks in town, thanks to its distinctive appearance. Sligo is also renowned for serving as the unofficial muse of W.B. Yeats, whose many works were inspired by the beautiful natural views of the surrounding area. The town, in turn, has returned the favor by setting up a memorial building and sculpture to honor the poet. To cap it off, the town also features historic structures, some of which date as early as from the 13th century. Book one of these Airbnb rentals if you want to see what the town has to offer!
