If you’re considering travelling to Enniscrone, don’t feel you have to bring a group of friends or family on your trip. Solo travel is a real eye-opening adventure and one that everyone should experience. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing spa break or a fun-filled few days with plenty of outdoor activity, our ideal Enniscrone accommodation is your best option for your solo break. Here are some fantastic activities to make your solo trip to Sligo unforgettable.


Walking is one of the most popular solo activities because it gives you time to enjoy nature, get away from the hustle and bustle of towns and keeps you active. Enniscrone has some truly remarkable walking trails and places to explore to keep you occupied. If you like to be beside the seaside, you can enjoy a ramble along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean along the pier at Enniscrone, a trip to the gorgeous Rosses Point or a little further out The Drumcliff Bay Walk. 

If you’d prefer to keep yourself sand-free, there are many more stable walking trails in the area too. If you want to take it easy, 45-minute Warren Walk might suit you. If you want to experience true Sligo nature, Dooney Rock Nature trail is a great place to explore and if you’re feeling very adventurous, the 74km Sligo Way walking trail will really challenge you.


After a long walk or a few days hiking in the mountains, you deserve a treat. Ocean Sands can offer a selection of pampering treatments in-house ranging from seaweed baths to massages. If you want to experience the power of the ocean without stepping foot on the sand, a relaxing seaweed bath may be the way to go. These ancient baths incorporate all-natural seaweed combined with specially selected essential oils and are perfect to soothe the aches and pains of a tired body. Enjoying a relaxing and tranquil seaweed bath in Kilkcullen Seaweed Baths is the ideal way to relax in Enniscrone.


Golf is not a sport usually played in a team so it’s ideal for your solo trip to Sligo! Located just a 10-minute walk away from the hotel, Enniscrone Golf Links founded in 1918 provides one of the most challenging and scenic golf links in Ireland! If you’d prefer to practice your driving without completing a full round, Enniscrone Golf Club also have a brand-new driving range visitors can avail of. A little further out, Sligo County Golf Club offers a scenic course and is located on the idyllic Rosses Point, with the most amazing views of Knocknarea to the south and Benbulben to the north. The 27-hole championship course is immaculately kept and newly renovated changing rooms and showers.


Another solo sport, one that requires balance, skill and confidence in the water is surfing.  Surf lessons usually last 2 hours, the first 20-minutes spent on the beach going through safety and technique. The rest of the lesson will be spent in the water practicing catching waves and perfecting your skills. 

They provide you with the surfboard and wetsuit for your lesson. You’ll just need to bring a towel, swimwear to use under your wetsuit and a warm jacket for after surfing. They operate in small groups, mainly couples and singles wanting to catch a wave on one of the best surfing beaches in the world. You could also book a one-on-one lesson if you prefer. 

Relax in Waterpoint:

If you like the idea of a relaxing swim or unwinding in a Health suite with a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, take a trip to Waterpoint, Enniscrone’s premier Aqua Park. They have separate adults and children’s pools, a state-of-the-art gym and a great refreshment area for afterward. They also have a great selection of fitness classes run by their qualified PTs if you don’t want to forsake your fitness regime on holidays.
