The Northwest Performing Arts

Sligo Live Music and Arts Festival

Fodor's Review

If you're visiting in the fall, don't miss the Sligo Live Music and Arts Festival, held at various venues around town. Established in 2005, the festival runs over the bank-holiday weekend at the end of October and has links with North America, particularly with WGBH in Boston. It's elbow-room only as hotels, pubs, and cafés are crammed with scores of live sessions while fiddlers, dancers, jugglers, and puppeteers fill the streets. For dates and details of gigs, visit the website, where you can buy tickets.
