Scenic Walk

We have just returned from a fabulous four day visit to Yeats’ Sligo. We had hoped to explore more walks but alas the weather was up to its usual westerly tricks. However the sun made a cameo appearance for a short spell on Saturday so we took advantage.

This breath-taking walk is located on Rosses Point Peninsula, just outside Sligo Town. Rosses Point holds a special place in our hearts as we had our wedding reception in the Yacht Club and pre-Aideen visited the beach regularly. We highly recommend a trip there also.

Features include:

  • Ample free parking
    • Roadside (along the sea wall)
    • Yeats Country Hotel
    • Beach car park
  • Linear walk
    • The village is not paved so we recommend staying on the footpath by the sea
    • 4 km out and back starting just at the entry to Rosses Point
  • Spectacular views of Sligo Bay and beyond
  • Bars – Austies & Harrys
  • Hotel – Yeats Country
  • Cafe – The Little Cottage Cafe (recommend this spot for sure)
  • Beach Access
  • Short scenic walk (paved but steep in one section)
  • Outdoor gym equipment
  • Look out for the Metal Man & the ‘Waiting on the Shore‘ sculpture
  • Public toilets (very basic, seasonal opening times, no changing facilities)
