Where is it?


Here is some information about walks, hikes and a few local beauty spots.
Check out the Sligo Way.
This is a beautiful walk that starts in Dromahair. The first two legs, from Dromahair to Union Wood are fantastic. The lake on top of the Ox mountain is awesome.
A seaweed bath in Strandhill is well worth a visit.
And the one in Enniscrone is equally as good.
The costal drive to Enniscrone is beautiful, made even better by a stopover at the Beach Bar in Aughris,
O’Rourke’s table is very near the house. It is a bit of a climb, but has fantastic views.
Walks nearby are, Slish wood Dooney rock and there is a secret walk near Parkes Castle. Driving for Drom, 200 meters before Parkes Castle, there is a turning on the right. Take this and immediately you’ll see a little, unofficial car park straight ahead. Park up here and walk around the trail. It takes 20 minutes and is beautiful.
This is a lovely walk, and finishes next to the house.
And this new hike, just a few miles from the house.
Glancar waterfall.
Of course the beautiful Lake Isle of Innisfree can be reached on foot, by bike, or car.
Rosses Point is just 14km away,
Strandhill is not much further.
Streedagh Strand.
Sleeve League, is a bit of hike to get there but wellworth it. Get fish and chips on Killybegs on the way back.
The Ceide Fields are well worth a visit.
Eating near by.
The Riverbank aka The Clubhouse is great. You won’t leave hungry.
