Love Island star Greg O'Shea visited Sligo at the weekend and said he had 'the best time' during his stay.

Greg was visiting Yeats County in conjunction with Discover Ireland, and he made the most of his few days here.

Posting on Instagram, the Limerick man said: "I've travelled to all corners of the world but the best time I've had was right on my doorstep!"

He started his weekend off with a cycle with North West Adventure Tours, when he got to light a campfire and take in views of Lough Gill.

He stayed in The Sligo Park Hotel and dined in Hooked restaurant.

On day two of his visit, he called out to Strandhill and did outdoor yoga with Blaithin Sweeney, in the shadow of Knocknarea.

He then visited Shells and surfed with Sligo Surf Experience.

Greg also picked up his litter picker and bin bag to do a bit of litter picking , even though it 'wasn't in the itinerary, we all have to help to keep our island clean and beautiful,' he said.

He sampled ice-cream from Mammy Johnstons and enjoyed a meal in Stoked, while taking in the stunning sunset in Strandhill, even comparing it to Bali on his Instagram posts about his stay.

Voya Seaweed Baths was next on his itinerary, before he visited Eagles Flying in Ballymote and got to hold close with some of the animals at the sanctuary.
