Markree Castle, Sligo: 26 reviews and 2 photos
For something really special , you could stay a night or two at Markree Castle in Collooney. This is the castle where Oliver Cromwell's 'hanging tree'still stands in the garden.
Today it is quite a lovely hotel which still exudes the old castle charm. Location wise, however, it probably isn't very practical unless you have a car of course, and then it is only a short drive to so many villages and to Sligo Town itself. You'll love Sligo, it is a glorious part of Ireland. Loch Gill and Benbulben will blow you away.
Unique Qualities: The peace and tranquil beauty of the Irish countryside abounds at Markree Castle. A walk in the garden here is reminiscent of a romantic Irish story. In the late afternoon all is perfectly still and very quiet and hauntingly beautiful.
