Streedagh Beach

April 2010

Streedagh is another of Sligo's fine expanses of sand. This is a good spot if you like your beaches bracing and a bit windy. It' s quite open, but you will get some shelter from the dunes surrounding the beach. A good place for a walk and there is a great view across to majestic Ben Bulben

As the photos show when we were there it is was deserted but real people do actually come here !

The water is fresh and can also get a bit wavy, which of course some people like. Not too deep and you get into your depth gradually

Access is from a large but rough car park across some stones. It's not wheelchair accessible and you will be carrying your buggy.

Streedagh has lifeguards on duty during the summer months.
