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. Offshore winds blow from the southeast. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the north northwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right and there is right hand reef break too.. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Take care of rocks in the line up.
