Knocknarea is an iconic landmark in Sligo. Located on the scenic Strandhill road, the small mountain rises prominently with dramatic sheer edges facing Strandhill. There are several cairns on top, the largest called Mebh’s (Maeve) cairn. There is a nice climb to the top with breathtaking views of Strandhill, Sligo town, Rosses point and Lough Gill.
