Walking up Benwisken is one of the most incredible experiences you can have in Sligo.
Standing on the edge of the 514 meter high limestone cliffs is invigorating to say the least. Stunning views of Sligo and all of Donegal Bay are revealed. You will be blown away by what looking down upon Yeats Country reveals, and also blown away if the wind is the wrong direction.
You must be very careful, and this hike shouldn't be taken lightly. The edge of the cliff is unstable and it is much windier at the top of all of the Dartry Mountains than it is below. Its best to go with a local guide.
