Inishcrone in Sligo is a fairly exposed beach and reef break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell angle is from the north northwest. The beach breaks favour lefts as well as a right hand reef break. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Rocks are a hazard.
