Just beautiful. Weather was windy when we were there, which added to the character. Beach is covered by millions of water worn stones. Saw a surfing lesson being held in October!

We visited here for the 3 days we were in Sligo. Walking on the beach or promenade with all senses engaged was so peaceful and contemplative. It is well worth the trip just for the view.

Yes, the beach near Strandhill is great (wonderful ice cream shop), but I think that Ross's Point is uncrowded, impressive, and safe. Also, check out some of the parks in Sligo, plus the downtown river walk is great.
