Sligo is a beautiful town in the North West of Ireland. It was once the childhood home of W.B. Yeats, who described the area as the 'Land of heart's desire', and it now stands as one of the most prosperous towns in Ireland. The town's ancient history trades off the dramatic mountain peaks of Benbulben and Knocknarea, giving Sligo an enchanting and almost mystical appeal. Car hire in Sligo is advantageous in order to see the magnificent beaches, the sprawling countryside which surrounds the town, and the Sligo Races are also a hugely popular detour.
Hiring a car in Sligo provides a convenient transfer from Sligo Airport, which is a 15 minute drive west of the town centre. Sligo Abbey brings a nice sense of history to the town centre, and if you rent a car in Sligo, you're invited to enjoy the stately pleasures of Lissadell House. If you enjoy Irish literature, you may also be inclined to make the pilgrimage to the poet's, W.B. Yeats, grave in Drumcliffe, which is less than 10 minutes' drive on the N15. Alternatively, you can take a beautiful drive south to Carrowkeel and become absorbed in the mystique of the Megalithic cemetery.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
