Sligo Walking Tours
Sligo Walking Tours is run by Mel Ni Mhaolanfaidh, a Historian and Tour Guide who researches and creates unique walking tours in Sligo in the North-West of Ireland. The Sligo Dark Tales tour takes in the birthplace of Bram Stoker’s mother and you’ll find out about the cholera epidemic which wiped out hundreds of people, but also inspired Stoker’s book Dracula. This walking tour also explores the history of Sligo Abbey and how it influenced the poet W. B. Yeats. You can read more about the tour here: https://sligowalkingtours.com/sligo-dark-tales/
On certain dates Sligo Walking Tours runs Dracula Walking Tours dedicated to Bram Stoker, there is Sligo Stoker Society and they have been working hard to raise awareness of the connection of Stoker to the town. The Stoker Walking Tour explores various locations connected to the author and tells participants of the tour more about the connection.
Sligo Walking Tours have also previously hosted Secret Scripture Tours. These are based on the best-selling book by Sebastian Barry, which was set in Sligo town and beyond. Mel will bring her guests to a variety of locations that are mentioned in the book.
