Enjoy superb views of Sligo, Donegal, Leitrim and even Mayo from the top of Benbulben. This iconic 526m tabletop mountain is part of the Dartry mountain range and the most visible landmark and attraction in North Sligo.
According to local mythology, Benbulben was called after an Irish king called Conal Gulban and is also the setting of several Irish legends involving Fianna warriors such as Diarmuid and Gráinne.
Benbulben has some wonderful flora and fauna which you can keep an eye out for on your hike including wild hares and foxes. In addition, Benbulben is the only location in Ireland where Fringed Sandwort (Arenaria Ciliata) a perennial herb has been found.
Our Bed & Breakfast lies at the foot of Benbulbin and you can climb it from our front door. Talk to Marita & Ian about the best routes for your Benbulben hike.
