Mullaghmore is a small fishing village that should be on any outdoor enthusiast’s itinerary.
The sandy beach here stretches as far as the eye can see and is ideal for a spot
of swimming or windsurfing. You can also venture out into the Atlantic for an excursion
to Inishmurray Island or a sea angling trip.
If you’re more of a landlubber, there’s plenty here for you too. Go for a leisurely stroll
and take in panoramic views of Sliabh Liag or watch the waves crash under Classiebawn
Castle. You can also enjoy surfing as a spectator sport, remaining on the beach
while watching top international surfers ride some of Europe’s best waves. Many come
for Prowlers – a famous spot where swells can reach up to 30m – and practice the towing
technique involving jet skis. These skilled big wave surfers are exciting to watch, but
the waves tend to be best in the winter months, so you’ll no doubt want to hurry back
into a cosy pub where you can warm up by the fire.
