In Enniscrone, we are well known for the tranquil surroundings, the beach, seaweed baths and of course the fabulous Ocean Sands Hotel. We don’t have much in the way of nightclubs but that doesn’t mean you can have a really great night out. This is the best of Enniscrone (and surrounding) nightlife:


If you’re looking for a real Irish pub, serving real Irish grub and some decent pints, The Pilot Bar is a good choice. The bar overlooks Enniscrone Beach, making it ideal for enjoying a few day-time drinks with a view. They serve a really fresh pint of Guinness among a good selection of other draft beers and ciders and a wide selection of spirits. Pair the Guinness with their famous Seafood Chowder for a real Irish treat. They often have live music in the evening, and you won’t have far to walk home to Ocean Sands after your fill of drink!

Trad Sessions

You won’t travel far in Sligo without hearing the famous Irish lilt accompanied by some traditional Irish music. For a really good ‘session’ in an award-winning Irish pub, pop into Gilroy’s Ait Eile, right in the centre of the village. They have a packed events calendar with great musical acts on every weekend, everything from solo singers to bands, showcasing the best Irish talent Enniscrone has to offer. The welcoming bar also has an impressive food and drinks menu and their staff are both friendly and fun!

A mixture of both

If you don’t fancy leaving the hotel, Ocean Sands Bar is a great combination of a bar, restaurant and live music venue all rolled into one. Our Onyx Bistro is a popular choice with locals who appreciate delicious and great quality food, freshly prepared by our talented team of chefs. After dinner, pop into our bar to sample something from our impressive drinks menu, complete with all of the usual suspects and a few unique additions on our cocktail menu. We often have live music in the bar, with local musicians showing us how talented Enniscrone really is.


Club One of our closest neighbouring towns and a great location for a truly great knees up is Ballina in Co. Mayo. If you’re looking to dance the night away, Time Square Nightclub, one of Ballina’s newest music venues is open until late. It has stylish décor, top class lighting and sound systems and often plays host to top international DJ’s and acts from around the world. There is plenty of room for dancing in their 5 bars, a huge dancefloor and large beer garden for when you need to cool down.
