Streedagh

Streedagh in County Sligo is perhaps one of the finest geological sites in all of Ireland. Located on the coastline with near horizontal layers of rock, this is an ideal hunting ground for fossils.

The bedrock is Carboniferous limestone formed around 340 million years ago when a shallow tropical sea covered the entire area. What makes Streedagh so special is the entire area is blanketed with the fossil remains of dead sea creatures.

Once again another enjoyable stay. Kids loved hottub and go karts. Scones on arrival were beautiful and also wifi was great. We will definitely be back very soon. Thanks again.
