There are two routes to get to Strandhill from the main M4 motorway.
The first turnoff for Strandhill is “Exit S1” about 6km before Sligo town. After taking this, about 3.5km later you will come to a roundabout where you should turn left. This will take you along a windy road around the back of the mountain, with amazing views of the seal colony on Culleenamore. Care should be taken as the road gets quite narrow and dangerous at times. This route will lead you directly to the Top Road or Carrowbunnaun.
The more direct route is to continue to Sligo town and turn left at the second traffic lights, where you will pass the Sligo bus and train station on your right. Travel straight for 5.6 km, passing through 2 more sets of traffic lights. Before you reach Strandhill, you will be greeted by an amazing panoramic view of Coney Island and Rosses Point. You will come to a small roundabout just before the village. Stay to the left here for the Top Road, and head right for the bottom or Shore Road.
