Enniscrone is a popular seaside town with a long beach which is well used by families and surfers. It’s a good place to go if you like a bracing walk after your swim as the beach must be 5 kilometres long.
The beach itself is quite open, wavy and obviously attractive to the surfing community. As you can see from the photos it probably gets more surfers than swimmers. It’s not so good if you are looking for somewhere to have a calm leisurely swim. But if you like the waves then this is a good spot.
And if you don’t fancy all those waves then you can retire to one of Enniscrone’s famous seaweed baths.
There is decent car parking near to the beach and there are also public toilets. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months.
Access is from the N 59 which you can get to via Ballina in Mayo or from Ballysadare. You then take the R 297 signposted Enniscrone which will bring you to the town. The beach is just behind the town and is signposted.
