We’ve been shouting for years about how great Enniscrone is as a holiday destination and why everyone should visit to discover the best of the West for themselves. We are delighted to support Discover Enniscrone’s brand new campaign launched in late August, called “Discover Enniscrone and Make It Yours”
This dynamic marketing campaign was launched on August 21st 2020 right here in Ocean Sands Hotel and the aim is to highlight our idyllic location and encourage more tourism to this beautiful part of the world. It was announced and is being supported by international soccer, Gaelic Football and Aussie Rules star Sarah Rowe. The campaign includes a series of videos, photoshoots, a brochure and an updated Discover Enniscrone website.
1. Enniscrone beach is a paradise
Speaking at the launch, Sarah Rowe revealed her strong attachment to our gorgeous seaside town, saying, “Enniscrone is a paradise for me. It’s a place where people can immediately feel relaxed and leave their cares behind, surrounded by its natural beauty and the glorious beach. I have so many fond memories of holidays and days out there. It will always be a special place to me. I wish Discover Enniscrone every success in their marketing campaign and attracting new people to experience this for themselves.”
2. Enniscrone is a holiday destination
Space is not an issue in Enniscrone. Our flagship sandy beach stretches for an unbroken 5km, giving plenty of space to walk, run, play, picnic, or learn to surf. Add in a championship golf links, historic seaweed baths, horse riding on the beach, cycling and all sorts of children’s activities, and it’s easy to see why Enniscrone is so such a beloved holiday destination for families, couple, groups and solo travellers. There is something to do for every age group from toddlers to grandparents and accommodation options to suit all budgets.
3. We have lovely dining options
We also have excellent restaurants, cafes and bars, whether you’d prefer fine dining or fish & chips on the beach. Among those is our extensively renovated Ocean Bar & restaurant, a favourite among locals and guests alike. Our updated menu features pub grub classics with a delicious Ocean Bar twist, prepared by our talented and dedicated kitchen team. Our beachside restaurant offers you the best of both worlds, a warm, welcoming atmosphere with views across the ocean.
4. It’s the perfect place for your family staycation
Covid 19 has constrained a lot of international travel, we are being encouraged to stay home and staycation, enjoying the best of our beautiful country and giving a much-needed boost to our economy. Enniscrone is remembered fondly by families who would have holidayed in years gone by and Discover Enniscrone are encouraging the public to relive these wonderful nostalgic times. Enniscrone is well-equipped for every visitor’s needs, with everything from luxury and family hotels to idyllic Wild Atlantic Way views along the way.
Traditionally Enniscrone has attracted holidaymakers from Northern Ireland as well as the rest of Ireland. Many of our visitors return year after year, recalling childhood memories of family holidays by the sea and bringing their own families back to enjoy the simple things that make holidays perfect. Imagine sandcastles, picnics and sunny days spent walking with your feet in the surf. All of this and so much more is at your doorstep when you discover Enniscrone.
Discover Enniscrone committee chairperson Mary Clarke commented, “We are very proud of our village here in Enniscrone and to have witnessed the growth of the village and its amenities over the years has been wonderful. Along with the natural resources here in the village we have also become a hub for water-based activities, supping, surfing, kite surfing, kayaking, etc. and the addition of the coastal walk has truly enhanced Enniscrone and provides activities for all age groups”.
