Rosses Point

April 2010

Rosses Point is a well known holiday location and its beach is an attractive, family style swimming spot.

The beach is divided into two sections, a smaller area near the car park which is more protected by the rocks and cliffs and a larger expanse which is more open and backs onto the famous Rosses Point golf links.

The water here is a bit calmer than other Sligo beaches and it’s a good place for kids to swim.

When we were here in April there was just ourselves and a couple of brave young souls in the water. But again, don’t be fooled by the photos. This is a popular holiday spot and it gets busy in the summer

Facilities at Rosses Point are good, with a decent sized car park and wheelchair/buggy access to the beach. There are also public toilets. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months.

From Sligo town you head for the N4 and N 15 routes and just after you pass through Sligo watch out for a left turn onto the R291 signposted for Rosses Point. This road leads you directly to the Point and the beach is easily found.
