Set off on a scenic ramble on Streedagh Beach in County Sligo. The 3km-long sandy beach links Streedagh Point to Connor's Island and makes for a magnificent walk with views of the Sligo coastline.

The sandbar at Streedagh Beach is overlain by sand dunes with an estuary to the east side and the Atlantic Ocean to the west, both providing thriving habitats for a rich array of flora and fauna. Feel the wind on your face and breathe in the salty sea air on a peaceful walk.

The exposed beach together with reef breaks creates ideal surfing conditions. Bring your board and wetsuit to experience some of the best cold water surfing in the world. Windsurfers and stand-up paddle boarders (SUP) can take to the calmer water in the sheltered estuary. Or keep your feet on dry land and watch as giant waves come rolling in from the Atlantic and crash against the shore.

Why we like it
  • Walk along Streedagh Strand from Streedagh Point to Connor's Island.
  • See an abundance of native flora and fauna in the sand dunes and estuary.
  • Surf fantastic waves at the beach.
  • Watch waves roll in from the Atlantic Ocean and crash against the shore.
