Mullaghmore is one of Sligo’s many fine beaches, a lovely place for swimming, walking and playing.
The beach is a fine expanse of sand with small sand dunes in the background and nice views of Tievebaun and Truskmor mountains behind.
The water here looks and feels clean, its soft underfoot and you get to your depth gradually. There is plenty of space for children to play and Mullaghmore is not too exposed to the winds
There is a smallish grassy car park but more spaces are available as you drive past the beach and nearby harbour. Public toilets are available at what is a 19th century harbour which in itself is an attractive spot. A nice green area with some seats overlooks the beach and gives you panoramic views.
This is one of the few places we have come across with a designated area for wheelchair access, so well done to Sligo County Council. Presumably this can be used for buggy access as well.
This is a busy spot in summer time and it won’t be as empty as the photos here. Still there’s lots of room for everyone.
From Sligo take the N15 toward Bundoran / Donegal. At the village of Cliffony watch out for a left turn onto the R27, signposted Mullaghmore. Follow this road and it will take you directly to the beach.
