Lough Gill

Lough Gill, an eight kilometres long limestone lake, lying just east of Sligo Town, nestled within counties Leitrim & Sligo is a place of utter beauty. Steeped in myth and legend, immortalised by William Butler Yeats, it is one of the must-see attractions when visiting the West Coast of Ireland.
