Gurteen is a tranquil and lovely village situated about 20 miles south of Sligo Town beside Lough Gara and near Ballymote. Lough Gara is an excellent fishing spot!

The Ceoláras Coleman centre in Gurteen houses a theatre, a large audio visual display on south Sligo, its music and the life of Michael Coleman.

There is also a complex of buildings a few miles west of Gurteen which is the Coleman Heritage Centre. This consists of a replica of the original Coleman home, and also a traditional style forge.
A music archive, managed by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, forms an important part of the project.
The primary focus of the centre is to promote the living tradition.
