Dunmoran is a long stretch of beach, good for both swimming and walking. The water can be wavy but it’s nice and soft underfoot as you enter the fresh, clear water.
The beach is surrounded by dunes which are good for the kids to scramble in.
There is a decent sized car park and as it’s a bit off the beaten track Dunmoran is less likely to be as busy as some of Sligo’s better known beaches.
There is a ramp down to a stony section so you could get a buggy on to the beach, however it’s not wheelchair accessible.
Not sure about lifeguards, check with Sligo County Council
Coming from Sligo or Dublin you take the N 59 to Balllysadare. From there you take the N 59 and watch out for a right hand turn signposted Aughis Point / Dunmahon Strand which will take you to the car park.
