The annual South Sligo Walking Festival will take place over the May Bank Holiday Weekend and will consist of 3 guided walks each day. The short walk will suit those who prefer a leisurely pace (country lanes/lakeside walks) while the medium (hill walk) and long (mountain walk) will be more challenging.

Beautiful scenery speckled with high altitude lakes and streams, giving participants a chance to experience at first hand the splendid isolation that is the Ox Mountains. Every year there are new walks added to the festival and this year is no exception. The newly created national loop walk at Lough Easkey, Lough Talt Loop Walk, ancient megalithic tombs 'The Giant's Graveyard' in the heart of the Ox Mountains, The Sligo Way and many more trails will be explored. Registration will take place at Joe Dan Mullarkey's pub each morning.
