Enniscrone in County Sligo is one of Ireland’s most idyllic beach villages and an amazing spot for a relaxed or active getaway. There are lots of fun things do in Enniscrone and Ballina, Co. Mayo is only 8km down the road for even more activity options.
Cycling around Enniscrone
1. A little cycling tour around Sligo & Mayo
Cycling fans will find that Enniscrone is a great base for discovery tours around Mayo and Sligo. For families I recommend getting a lift to Ballina and setting off for a family friendly cycle to discover the Monasteries of the Moy Greenway.
For everyone that feels safe cycling on, mostly very quiet, roads I recommend this 35km loop to Ballina and around the beautifully remote Irish country side.
This 78km loop adds 2 lakes and the coastal village Easky to the tour.
Beach fun & Water sports in Enniscrone
2. Salt, Sand & Ice Cream
The best thing about Enniscrone is obviously its unspoilt blue flag beach. Take a stroll along the dunes and go for a dip in the refreshing Atlantic. The best things in life are free 😉 but bring a little change for a ice-cream treat.
You can find Harbour SUP paddle from their home pier in Enniscrone, or sometimes down at the Quay in Ballina. SUPing is lots of fun either way and you should not leave the Atlantic Coast without giving it a go.
Welcome to the Irish surf coast! 7th wave surf school and North West Surf School will teach you how to catch waves and surf into the sunset.
5. Playground and Crazy Golf
Close to the beach front this fun filled playground for children of all ages and also why not bring the family along and play a game of crazy golf.
Rainy Days in Enniscrone
6. Indoor water park
Especially for families, the Waterpoint Aqua Park can be a great activity for a rainy day. However, I still recommend going down to the beach, rainy days in Enniscrone can be magical! The waterpoint also features a well-equipped gym.
7. Seaweed baths
The perfect way to unwind after a long walk on the beach. The Kilcullen bathhouse offers a relaxed, therapeutic, natural and pure Irish experience.
8. Pitch n’ Putt
Enniscrone’s Pitch n’ Putt is the oldest Pitch n’ Putt course in the West of Ireland and a great activity for the whole family.
9. Iceford stables
Are you looking for a ride? The Iceford stables are offering horse back riding lessons, beach rides, pony camps and are located on the coast road between Enniscrone and Ballina.
The Enniscrone Golf course is among the finest and most challenging of traditional Irish links golf courses and offers 27 holes on 400 acres of magnificent links land, featuring the par 73 Dunes Championship Links Course.
