More north than Kilmacteige Parish, but an Old place worthy of a look!

Trip Advisor for the Area of South Sligo – many good listing but it is certainly NOT exhaustive and other activities and places exist.

MAYO – short drive from Aclare, but VERY worth it, go say Hello – spend money if you are treated well and enjoy it, they will appreciate it (and tipping is ALWAYS appreciated no matter what anyone says)!:

Tom of HENNIGAN’S HERITAGE CENTER, is one, if not the most Genuine, Nice, Mayo Man (Irishman) you will ever meet. He knows the History and Way of Life in this area from “back in the day” of GrandParents and Grt. GrandParents — He lived and lives it –! His Heritage Center is right next to His House, and is ONE PLACE NOT TO ME MISSED in South Sligo (Killasser, Mayo actually).
