We enjoyed the food and would love to recommend La Bella Vita. If you are after fresh fish and fresh ingredients, this is the place to be.
And although we were told to leave the table by 9 pm, we never felt rushed by our waitress. The staff are very professional and very friendly and we are grateful they managed to give us a table. We ended a great day and night at Matt Molloy's where we met loads of the other competitors. A nice pint was taken while discussing the days events while listening to some traditional Irish music.

Co.Sligo is a walkers paradise, from hiking up Benbulben to a relaxing coastal walk to walking in the hidden Glen, there is a different walk for each day of the week.
And Sligo has a good selection of very active walking clubs which have a very active calendar ( http://www.outdoorfitnesssligo.com/walking-clubs.html) . Joining one of these clubs is a great way of meeting new friends, discovering new parts of co.Sligo or just a way of getting fit.
And we have to admit, i never really liked walking/hiking. It was to slow, I always had a preference to cycle. But i must say, i love walking now. Nothing beats heading out on a trail after work and meeting a badger walking slowly across your path, or meeting another walker which comes from a far away country and sharing some local knowledge with them or just having the friendly chat, or watching the sunset along the Killaspugbrone loop .

On a glorious summer's day, we decided to head to Donegal. Co.Donegal is not that far from co.Sligo, so after a short hour we made our way over to Slieve League. Slieve League are some of Europe's highest cliffs standing 601m tall.
After our visit, we headed along the coast towards Glencolumbkille. Before driving into the village, you have Glencolumbkille folk park. The folk park shows you what life was like during past centuries. Each of the cottages is a replica of a dwelling used by the local people, from the turf fires to the furniture.
Below at the foot of the cliffs, 2 kayakers were enjoying the scenery from below, dolphins were playing in the water and a fishing boat was taking in the daily catch.
The Giant's table and chair can be seen at the foot of the cliffs sitting in a secluded bay. On a clear day, the water looks crystal clear.
If you have the time for a decent hike, why not head up the cliffs and walk along One Man's path. It is a narrow path with steep slopes. This ridge might only be for the more experienced climbers and is best avoided with rain / strong winds or fog.
