Parkes Castle and Lough Gill

Parkes Castle & Lough Gill

Located 7.5 miles (12km) from Sligo town, Parkes Castle and a driving tour around Lough Gill make for a wonderful day out. The castle offers several rooms to explore, but a visit is made memorable by walking the high walls and taking in the view of the lake.
