What's also great about Sligo is that the beaches are very nearby and in this beach was very very convenient to us as we were staying at the Ragnarsson nearby and it was literally on our doorstep and made for some great beachcombing walks

I have visited Rosses point many times. It has EVERYTHING. Great hotels, great restaurants and a superb beach. The scenery is spectacular. The wee pub is so full of charm and atmosphere. I have never left Rosses point without being 100% satisfied. Just love the place.
