Some of the people that experienced our tours
This was an excellent and extremely interesting walking tour. Melissa was a very knowledgeable and informative guide. I would highly recommend everyone-locals or visitors-to go on this tour.
We went on the Sligo Dark Tales Tour last night and really enjoyed it. Melissa put a lot of work into the details of props and information on people who lived in Sligo town.
The Dark stories tour was fantastic. It was great to learn about Sligo social history through visiting different landmarks in the town. Ending up.in Thomas Connoly bar was a nice surprise
