Car & Van Rental at Sligo
Sligo is located in the Border Region and home to the Ben Bulben Mountains, an iconic landscape in Ireland. The county Sligo carries a rich historical significance with some studies suggesting that it was one of the earliest human settlements in Ireland. Nobel laureate William B. Yeats is from Sligo, and several heritage centres and museums are dedicated to his works. From the Ben Bulben to the Sligo coastline to the sprawling lands, this county has reason to be a top tourist destination. By hiring a car in Sligo, you can immerse yourself in the breath-taking views and enjoy the scenic routes this location has to offer. Enterprise has a car rental facility in Sligo for your convenience, ensuring you can prepare an adventurous escape into the wild.
Our Vehicles for Hire in Sligo
Car hire facilities in Sligo have something to offer every kind of visitor. Enterprise has more than six car variants, including SUVs, commercial vans and people carriers.
If you would prefer a car, then the Enterprise options include mini, economy, compact, standard and intermediate. For a solo tour, a mini offers a spacious interior and fuel economy, but a coupe is also a superb option. If the weather is up for it, consider a convertible to be able to take in more of a view when driving through the area. Alternatively, you could get a people carrier for your Sligo car hire. People carriers can accommodate a sizable group of passengers and still have room to throw in your suitcases. An SUV is another option if you prefer to be sitting a bit higher up or will be taking the mountain roads.
Attractions in Sligo
The Sligo countryside, particularly with the Ben Bulben in the background, is an awe-inspiring environment. Drive to the mountains for scenic tours and wild experiences. Knocknarea, a large hill, is another attraction you can check out, as well as Sligo Abbey, which contains carvings from the Gothic and Renaissance eras. The Abbey has been standing since medieval times, and its structure is proof of this area’s fascinating history. A holiday in Sligo must include a trip to at least one beach, and the options available include Streedagh, Strandhill, Enniscrone, Mullaghmore and Culleenamore Beach. Take a tour of the Sligo County Museum and educate yourself more on the region. Of course, a tribute to the legendary William B. Yeats is a great way to make your Sligo trip complete, and you can do that by visiting his statue, which is found on Stephen Street in the town. Read some of Yeats’ famous words on the bronze sculpture.
Places to Visit Outside Sligo
Hiring a car the freedom to explore the wider region. Mayo is one of the neighbouring counties that you can add to your list of places to see. It is enriched with history, such as the 16th-century pirating exploits of Grace O’Malley or the monastic settlements that are worth a visit. Clew Bay is a stunning vision that will spice up anyone’s holiday. You can enjoy some of the tributes to St. Patrick, such as Croagh Patrick, or head to the Ballycroy National Park for outdoor adventures like hiking and camping. County Leitrim and County Roscommon offer just as exciting sightseeing opportunities outside of Sligo.
