Rosses Point, Sligo
(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy the scenery of Rosses Point, a small residential town and also the name of the surrounding peninsula. Poet William Yeats and his artist brother Jack Yeats spent their summer holidays here, thus it is also referred to as Yeats County. This charming little village is full of walking trails and beaches where you can see out across the Atlantic Ocean. Look out to one side for a view of the ocean meeting up with the mountains. Keep your eyes peeled for the monumental 3.7 m (12 ft) high "Metal Man" lighthouse guarding Sligo Harbour on Perch Rock. There are many sports activities here as well, such as the 18-hole golf course and the Sligo Bay Lifeboat Station. Make sure to bring a jacket as it tends to get quite windy. Add Rosses Point and other attractions to your Sligo trip itinerary using our Sligo trip itinerary planner.

  • we loved driving around Ireland. The coast in this area was majestically rugged. We had a car so it was easy to traverse the area. Can walk out to the beach. Other places to explore in that region as ...  more »
  • Beach, golf school, Jolly sailor treasures. It seems so not a lot of space and used wisely. All attractions are available, only on private land enclosures. Wonderful views of Mount BenBalben. 20 minutes to get on the bus, costs 5 euros, and if you take on Strandhill Beach and Rozess point will discount-ticket will cost 7 euros.

  • Stunning views over the sea, especially good on a windy day with the waves coming in from the Atlantic. Good parking but expect it could be busy in the summer.
