About 8 miles north of Sligo Town lies the Dartry Mountain range, which includes the mountain which is known worldwide as a symbol of Sligo, the distinctively shaped Benbulben mountain.
This unusually shaped mountain was created during the ice age, by glaciers which carved the landscape we see today.

If you decide you want to climb Benbulben, don't ever consider attempting climbing from the north face, as this side is extremely dangerous due to the fact that this side bears the brunt of the high winds and storms that come in from the Atlantic Ocean.
If you climb Benbulben from the south side, it is a much easier climb as this side slopes up gently.
When you reach the summit you will be rewarded with magnificent views of The Yeats Country - The Land of Hearts Desire.
