Located in the coastal village of Mullaghmore, the Pier Head Hotel invites travellers to explore County Sligo’s vast countryside and ride the big waves of Donegal Bay. History enthusiasts may head to the nearby Creevykeel Court Cairn, a narrow passageway featuring full-court tombs dating back to the Neolithic age, while traces of early monastic life can be seen on Inishmurray Island. The hotel offers accommodation in en suite rooms, with some boasting views over the Mullaghmore Harbour, Dartry Mountains or Donegal Bay, and kitted out with flat-screen TVs and tea and coffee facilities on request. A wide variety of dishes made with locally sourced ingredients may be savoured at the Clashybann Restaurant, while the Quay Bar & Lounge serves up light snacks. The in-house salon offers treatments that include seaweed baths, complemented by an indoor pool, gym, and sauna; customers should bear in mind that spa treatments must be booked in advance.
