Project Backround

Sligo Development Plan outlines future Urban Regeneration of the Dockland Area. Sligo and its Environs has abundant Natural Attractions and Amenities and a number of sites of Major Megalithic and Mythological Importance. The North West lacks a Major Urban Tourist facility which complements this array of attractions .

Project Description


Proposed Museum of Ancient Celtic Heritage to house Megalithic Artifacts and to provide a Visitor Center showcasing Celtic Mythology to the World. Envisaged as an extension to the Gateway Tower, the facility is intended to strengthen the 'Atlantic Way' route for tourists from establised markets - USA, UK and Europe. 

Ideally the Building would be of International Significance and would draw Visitors from new Tourism markets such as Asia and the Middle East. It would serve as a Regional base for complimentary attractions ie.  Ceide Fields. 

The Form of the building references the arrangement of a Dolmen or other Megalithic Cluster. Revenue opportunities for Local Authorities, and employment from spin off tourism ventures are possible. Aerial Map by Google / Digital Globe
