Aughris Hole
A tolerable location with attentive navigation required for access. 2.7 metres LWS. Aughris hole is a small bay on the northwest coast of Ireland in County Sligo, on the east side of Aughris Head which has detached rocks, uncovered at low water, extending some distance to the westward of Carrickfadda rock, its eastern limit. A vessel should therefore anchor well over towards the western shore. get full information »

A completely protected location with attentive navigation required for access. 2 metres LWS.

A tolerable location with attentive navigation required for access. 7 metres LWS. Inishmurray is a small island, with outlying dangerous rocks to the north of it, and a clear passage between it and the south shore of Donegal bay. It lies 4 miles from Ballyconnel Point, and 3 miles from Streedagh Point, the nearest part of the shore abreast. The island is about a mile long and 66 feet high, bounded by low cliffs based on a rocky foreshore. Its eastern end, called Rue Point, terminates in a stony spit. get full information »

A good location with straightforward access. 1 metres LWS. Mullaghmore Head, 198 feet high with a ruined telegraph tower on its north side, has several rocks off its north-east extremity lying at a distance of 370 metres from the cliffs, some of which are covered only at high spring tides. Outside these, foul ground extends a quarter of a mile further, and is steep-to. Therefore care must be observed when rounding the head to give it a wide berth, and not to approach it nearer than half a mile in the finest weather. get full information »
