Getting Here


Sligo Yacht Club is located in Rosses Point and accessed from Sligo Town by taking the R291 which is signposted for Rosses Point.  Drive the 7 km to the village, along the channel on your left and continue until you reach a T junction.  On your right is the Yeats County Hotel, in front is the Rosses  Point Golf Club.  Turn left at this T junction for the beach and after 300m there is a slip road directly ahead to the club while the road to the beach curves to the right.  The club has a distinctive white curved roof and is located on a rocky promontory with a navigation channel on the left and the beach on the right.  Masts, boats and flags proliferate.

From Further Afield

There are a number of ferry options depending on the individual’s point of origin. 

From Holyhead the sea journey time is 3 hours to either Dublin Port or Dun Laoghaire.

Irish Ferries

Stena Line

From there the road trip to Sligo takes 3 hours (about 1/3rd on motorway – M4 - and the rest on good class national primary roads - N4).

Having made the journey in the opposite direction we can say that it is not a difficult one. For anyone not bringing a boat there is a rail service from Dublin and direct flights from various parts of the UK to Knock airport (about 1 hour from Sligo). There are commuter flights from Dublin to Sligo Airport itself.
