Welcome to Sligo Folk Park

A trip down memory lane

Sligo Folk Park is located in the beautiful village of Riverstown, County Sligo. This community based attraction provides a true experience of rural life and Irish heritage at the turn of the late 19th Century.

The Folk Park is set in the grounds of the authentically restored Millview House, which was originally built in 1873 by George Reid a farmer, shoemaker and the local church sexton.

Stroll around the park and visit the wonderful museum and evocative exhibition hall which houses one of Ireland’s finest collections of rural history and agricultural artefacts.

Open all year round (Mondays to Fridays) and catering to all ages and group sizes, Sligo Folk Park has something for everyone.

Halloween Scare in the Park

Everyone likes a good scare around Halloween and there’s nowhere better than “A Scare in the Park” at Sligo Folk Park on Wednesday 30th October. It’s packed to the gills with scary skeletons, ghosts, ghouls and (slightly) frightening fun for everyone, particularly 2-12 year olds. It’s a chance for the whole family to dress up in their most creative costume (there’s prizes) and enjoy scares, dares and fearsome fare in Riverstown. New this year is the Scarecrow Competition….
