Enniscrone (Gaeilge: Inis Eascair Abhainn) meaning: the island on the sandbank in the river, is the most westerly seaside resort in County Sligo, which caters for large numbers of people from Ballina some 8 kilometres away and further away in County Mayo.
Enniscrone, also spelt Inniscrone or Inishcrone, is a lovely little seaside town, which boasts 5 kilometre long sandy beach with lifeguards on duty during the summer season, seaweed baths, a campsite and golf course.
The “Valley of Diamonds”, one of the hidden attractions on Enniscrone beach, which can be seen in the sand dunes on your left if you walk along the beach, the “Valley of Diamonds” is the largest of these volcano-like compositions among the long-grassed sand dunes, the inside of which is a mostly sandy circular-like valley located near the end of the beach. The sand dunes here are fenced off by Sligo County Council as part of their “Dune Restoration Works Programme”.
Enniscrone Golf Course dates from 1918 and is among the finest and most challenging traditional Irish links golf courses, offering 27 holes on 400 acres of magnificent links land, featuring the par 73 Dunes Championship Links Course.
