One of the great benefits of being a member of Hilltoptreks walking club, are the numerous organized hiking weekends away, both in Ireland and abroad.
One weekend that stands out for me, was our trip to Sligo for the 2019 June bank holiday weekend.
On a sunny bank holiday Saturday, we all made our way to Sligo – some drove themselves, while others opted to avail of the bus provided by Hilltoptreks – and met up in the Glasshouse Hotel. Here we were met by our guide for the weekend, Noel. Noel gave us a brief rundown of our itinerary for the days ahead, along with a little bit of history of the area we were in.
