Bargain hunting usually takes a lot of work. To know a good deal when you see one, you’d have to check out all the available deals, but when the bargain you’re looking for is on a Sligo, Ireland car rental, there is a much easier way.
Airport Rentals cut out this time and effort by bringing together all the vehicles on offer from leading local hire companies. Therefore, for a deal on either a Sligo or Strandhill car rental, you only need to visit one site. Here, you’ll enter your arrival and departure dates, and the search function will bring up the cars and costs from both Avis and Hertz. You can quickly compare the vehicles on offer in the same place and make a decision based on which one best fits around your budget - and your luggage!
Each rental comes with a best-price guarantee, customer support whenever you need it and the option to cancel or change your booking without a fee on most cars.
What to do in and around Sligo
It doesn’t matter which way you look, there’s a stunning landscape to be explored in every direction around Sligo, making it one of Ireland’s most underrated gems. In the north the Benbulben Mountain cuts a striking figure on the skyline, Lough Gill sits peaceful and serene to the east, the Ox Mountains loom in the south and the endless Atlantic Ocean borders in the west.
The Benbulben Mountain is easily one of the most popular locations around Sligo, and is also sometimes known as Ireland’s answer to Table Mountain. It is the result of an odd formation of Dartry limestone, Glencar limestone and Benbulben shale, and is estimated to be approximately 320 million years old. It is not advised to climb the mountain itself, but there is a loop walking track around the base.
Enjoy Lough Gill up close with a cruise on the Rose of Innisfree between Easter and October. This cruise is designed to give you a relaxing guided tour of this picture-perfect patch of Ireland, a spot that W.B.Yeats spoke of fondly in poetry. Commentary and a full bar are available on board, and the cruise departs from Parke’s Castle, so be sure to give yourself about an hour to explore this 17th century structure before you go.
