We enjoyed this walk so much, we returned in the evening to watch the stars come out. The path is mowed and trimmed part of the. Way and runs along the ocean edge just beyond the farm fields. We had the scent of freshly spread manure for part of the walk. Only a couple other people were scene for part... More

We started at the jetty and enjoyed the easy footpath along the edges. Nice view over Sligo Bay and only a few people around. After the St Patrick's well we weren't able to see any path any more sow we returned to the jetty. It's obviously not a round trip.

The walk along the cliff overlooking the Atlantic is lovely. It's a very easy walk and the path is well marked. Having read the other reviews, I had imagined it to be a little wilder and it is, in fact, fairly tame. However, it's a great walk with great views! There wasn't another soul to be seen when we were... More

Beautiful walk, quite with fabulous views. There is a clear path to be followed, not a hugely long walk, but a great blast of fresh air!

My sister planned our visit to Ireland and of course, Trip Advisor was the first place she turned. Bernadette014's review inspired her and guided our visit. We could not have found the spot, had we not been looking for signs for The Beach Bar. Once you reach Aughris Head, just follow the signs. The roads are tiny and winding, but... More

I had heard of this wonderful cliff walk at Aughris Head on that bit of coast between Sligo city and Ballina heading out towards Mayo .However I had never managed to find it despite driving down to Aughris Head several times. Eventually I gave up looking for it. A few months ago I was chatting to someone who started to... More

We walked this Sep. 09/2010. It was a warm, sunny day with some clouds and it was really peaceful and beautiful. It's not a difficult walk and there are cliffs, hidden beaches, blackberries, butterflies, great scenic views and much more to experience. After the walk stop at Aughris Head's Beach Bar for a Guinness and good company.
