Sligo boasts one of the most appealing stretches of coast on the 2,500km Wild Atlantic Way which runs the full length of Ireland’s west coast. It’s in the region known as The Surf Coast and has a remarkable 110km of coastline to explore and enjoy.
Despite the name, it’s not just about surfing. The coastline is a wonderful mix of long sandy beaches, secret coves, tranquil harbours and tiny piers each offering a different option for the visitors. Families will find plenty to enjoy, in every season. Outdoorsy types will be in heaven with so many options to explore. In fact there really is something for everyone – romantic couples, groups of friends, hardy adventurers and families too.
