Ballysadare Bay is an extensive inlet just south of Sligo on the north west coast of Ireland. It is choked with sand banks, but there is a narrow channel winding among them only navigable with local knowledge.

It affords a secure anchorage in Portcuny pool, just within the entrance but careful navigation is required.
