The Wild Atlantic Way Sligo To Ballina

To continue our exploration of the world-famous route that is The Wild Atlantic Way we will now take a look at the stretch from Sligo to Ballina.

Leaving Sligo, you can travel over to The Fairy Glen which is definitely a standalone destination in Ireland. Located at the foot of Knocknarea, The Fairy Glen will amaze you with beautiful scenery and nature with ivy-covered stone, hanging vines, mossy rock and ancient trees. This makes the area look like a hidden garden that kids would love to explore.

As you leave the The Fairy Glen you will travel through Carrowmore which is Europe’s largest cemeteries of megalithic tombs. Here you will be taken back in time with the collection of tombs and ring forts.
As you travel further away from Sligo along the coast you will then come upon Dunmoran Strand. Dunmoran Strand is picturesque and has great surfing, swimming and walking along the 4km beach. This is only one of several quiet and secluded little beaches that are scattered along the Co. Sligo coast.

Just further west from Dunmore Strand is Aughris Head which is located in the southern section of the Sligo Bay. The view you can experience from Aughris Head overlooking Sligo bay is simply spectacular. I the area is a holy well which history claims that St. Patrick had visited. While you are there why not stop off at the Beach Bar which is steeped in Irish heritage and culture.

The next must visit location as you travel towards Ballina along the coast is the beautiful village of Easkey. Easkey is internationally considered as one of the most popular surfing destinations in Ireland with surfing taking place in here all year round. What makes Easkey perfect for surfers is the rocky cliffs situated before the coast that break the waves and shapes them perfectly for surfing.

The next area of interest before you reach Ballina that we think you visit is Inishcrone. Inishcrone is a small seaside town with a beautiful sandy beach, tourist campsite, and golf course for you to park up for a day or two and enjoy. The beach is surrounded by amazing sandy dunes and in the centre of the dunes is the Valley of Diamonds which is a dune hill that shoots up and looks like a volcano.

Just before you arrive in Ballina make sure you stop off at Ballina quay. A picturesque location the quay is typically filled with small boats located around the wreck of a huge ship in the centre of the Quay. Across on the opposite bank you will see Bellek Castle and forest park.

The picturesque route of The Wild Atlantic Way has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. The section of the route from Sligo To Ballina is no exception. Breathtaking views and scenery is waiting for you as you embark on a campervan trip that you will remember forever.

This section of the route is a major attraction each year for keen surfers as the coast gives amazing waves to catch and surf and experience the famous Prowlers waves in action.

Donegal Bay To Sligo

Donegal Bay has a number of beaches to experience with some of the best surfing waves in the world. Stretching from Murvagh Beach to Rosses Point the route is simply spectacular and breath taking. Donegal Bay is Ireland’s largest bay and has some of the highest sea cliffs in Ireland with Slieve League towering at 1972 ft.

The Wild Atlantic Way is best expressed at Mullaghmore Head. On the west, the Atlantic demonstrates its strength and aggression while on the east an amazing beach and a beautiful harbour nestle in the protection of the bay. From the bay you catch get a ferry over to the island of Inishmurray and explore Inishmurray monastery and delve into the islands ancient heritage.
