Old sligo street

In the footsteps of Eneas McNulty



Are you a fan of Sebastian Barry’s fictional trilogy about the McNulty family, Eneas, Roseanne, Jack and Mai ? Experience Sligo from the characters’ perspective.  Check out the melcoo literary trail to follow in the footsteps of your favourite characters.

Over the  next few weeks, we will be posting a walking tour series about the streets and buildings in Sligo that helped inspire the novels.  Sebastian Barry’s novels have become a huge success. The Whereabouts of Eneas McNulty, The Secret Scripture and The Temporary Gentleman have sold millions of copies worldwide and The Secret Scripture is currently been made into a feature film. Sebastian Barry’s play Our Lady of Sligo also referenced places in Sligo.

Sebastian Barry fans can make their way around Sligo to see the locations where the novels are set or book a guided tour with us.

All of the locations are within a short walking distance of the main thoroughfare in Sligo town, called O’Connell street.
