Enniscrone Beach

The Route
Start from the promenade steps. Head west along the beach. Keep left along the pathway towards the lifeguard station. Keep right past the surf schools. Walk across the pedestrian bridge to the right; turn right down onto the beach before turning left and heading west again.

This is a lovely walk along the beach at Enniscrone with stunning views out across the Atlantic.

Don’t miss! The two megalithic tombs on the ridge overlooking Enniscrone, the remains of both Enniscrone Castle and Valentine’s Church and also the Ringforts present on the overlooking embankment.
