Welcome to the Sligo Folk Park in Riverstown, County Sligo

Sligo Folk Park is located in the beautiful village of Riverstown, County Sligo.

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.
