Strandhill is a fabulous little place along the Wild Atlantic Way located in Co.Sligo. The last few years, Strandhill has established itself as the place to be in Co.Sligo. From the trendy cafe's and restaurants to the up and coming food producers, from the coolest Sunday market on the planet to the outdoor activity producers, Strandhill is the place to visit. On this blustery cold Sunday, we found ourselves wrapped up warm walking through the dunes towards Killaspugbrone church. The white heads of the waves crashing against the shoreline, the dune grass swaying in the wind, a lonely seagull made us look up when it squawked louder than the heavy seabreeze.
It was then that we noticed that the dark clouds had been replaced by blue sky, the sun trying to break through the lingering clouds. The Killaspugbrone loop runs from Strandhill village towards Killaspugbrone church and back towards the village crossing right beside the airport. Strandhill village is always busy now, even during the week. It is very difficult to find a parking space along the seashore promenade on the best of days, let alone finding a space during the busy weekends. But there is a large carpark when you enter the village on your left.
After our walk, we decided to have an icecream from Mammy Johnson's , so we opted for the blue surf - a delicious ice cream with marshmallows in it.
