Scenic Sligo Driving

Drive around Mullaghmore Head and take a walk around the headland. You have the best of both.  Enjoy a wonderful drive regardless of the weather as it only enhances the drama of the crashing cliff waves and sun light on Inishmurry Island.

Other drives include Aughris Head with beach walk or visit the cliffs or pier and take a picnic on the nearby Dunmoran strand just a few minutes drive away. Highwood and Lough Arrow offer a stunning inland experience leading onto the Miners Way historical trail. Fishing enthusiasts can marvel at Lough Arrow, one of Europes finest wild trout fishing loughs. Lough Talt and Ladies Brea offer a stunning mountain drive through the Ox mountain or drive around Lough Gill and through Glencar Valley. Whichever route you take you wont be disappointed. Then return to Rosses Point and take in the stunning backdrop as your watch the sun set.
