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.

Thank you Josephine for letting us stay in your beautiful home. Kids had great fun with the go karts and hot tub. Thank you for getting the stair gate and travel cot. Will definitely be back next year for a break away. Sad to be leaving.
