THE WILD ATLANTIC WAY
Shaped during the ice age by massive glaciers segmenting the landscape, Benbulbin’s imposing
structure points to the Atlantic Ocean. Underneath its shadow, in DrumcJiff Churchyard, lies one of
Ireland’s greatest poets – William Butler Yeats.
When the winds are blowing it is time to grab the surfboards and head for the magnificent surfing
beaches of Sligo, at Enniscrone, Easkey and Streedagh, with the beach at Strandhill probably the
most popular spot.
Huge Atlantic rollers known as ‘Waves’ – a wave like no other with swells said to be up to 100ft crash
onto the beach at Mullaghmore – A Discovery Point on the Wild Atlantic Wav.
