Glencar Lake , County Sligo

Glencar Lake is in County Sligo and well worth a wee look on any tours of Ireland.

There is a lake and beautiful waterfalls and you will not be disappointed at these hidden gems.

A side turning off the Sligo/Manorhamilton road runs along the north shore of the lake. Its a really nice drive.

South of the wooded valley in which the lake lies , the mountains rise over 300m/985ft. While to the north the mountains rise more distantly to 600m/1970ft.

Looking along the lake is a flat parcelled – up valley facing the sea at Drumcliff.

The waterfall at the east end of the lake inspired Yeats’ poem “The Stolen Child”….have a read !!

So…if your Ireland tours take you in the direction of County Sligo do visit Glencar Lake.
