What a gorgeous beach. Dunes, some rocks, old stone house, and mostly lots and lots of sand. Quiet, not too many visitors, secluded. Wish we could have stayed longer, would have been great for a longer walk.

Dunmoran Strand is a really secluded two mile beach located in West Sligo. It is located off the N59 and is a real pleasure to walk either in the Winter or the Summer time with views over to Knocknarea, Benbulben and Slieve League. At the far end of the beach you can cross a foot bridge which will bring you... More

We only live a few mins from Dunmoran Strand, it's simply beautiful. Even on a fantastic summers day its never over crowded and you'll find your own wee space to relax. Lovely long beach for walks. Love Dunmoran Strand :-)

Absolutely love Dunmoran Strand. In a beautiful rural location. Would highly recommend a visit. Lovely for a long walk. Nice for swimming in summer too.

We drove to Strandhill to see the beach and the ocean during our decent trip to Sligo and were not disappointed!! The area is lovely, although a bit busy on the weekend. Great location for photo opportunities!!

Great beach when the tide is out. Safe swimming and good beach for surfing beginners. Gorgeous views of Knocknarea and Benbulben in the distance. When the weather is clear, you can see the Donegal mountains across the bay. Parking lot.

Looking for The Beach Bar, we turned off the road too early, but I'm glad we did! The walk along the strand was beautiful, whilst the Beach Bar at the end of the beach was especially welcoming. We only called in for a quick drink, but it was very tempting to stay longer. The patrons are friendly, whilst a pint... More

It's absouletely stunning, the views are brillant and there's nothing u need from it, its just better the way it is. I just wish it wasnt so bloody far away from Sligo as it takes an hour of a journey!

Dunmoran Strand is off the main Ballisodare to Ballina road. I was there mid-week and it had lots of car-parking spaces. There were very few people using the beach although the weather was fine. A few hardy souls were swimming but I chose to walk to the end where I see a new bridge has been installed. One can now... More
