Located in South Sligo, Gurteen is A quaint village that has strong ties with traditional music. Based on this unique history of traditional Irish music, Gurteen is host to the Coleman Irish Music Centre. The main building is a focal point for the living tradition, for which the area is so rightly famous and houses a theatre, a large audio-visual display on South Sligo, its music and the life of Michael Coleman (who is known worldwide for his influence on many artists today).

Not too far away is Moygara Castle a 16th Century Castle overlooking Lough Gara (a great spot for fishing) that was once the principal home of the O’Gara clan.

Over 300 crannog sites were found in the lake in the 1950’s when the lakes were drained!

A few miles west of Gurteen is the Coleman home which was integral in the development of traditional music in the area.A music archive, one of the most important elements of the whole project, is housed here.



Moygara Castle

Moygara Castle, Co Sligo (Monument No.: SL 044-05201) appears to be mainly late 16th or early 17th century in date. It consists of a large square bawn (51m North / South by 51m East West), which has a residential tower, each slightly angled in shape, at each of its four corners. A gatehouse occurs along its Western side. The historical evidence and field remains at the site, however, suggest that an earlier tower house, whose foundations are still visible, existed along the Northern side of the bawn wall.
