Profile Description

The picturesque village of Strandhill is just 10 minutes from Sligo and is vibrant throughout the year. The village is nestled between the majestic Knocknarea mountain and just a stone’s throw from the magnificent Atlantic Ocean. The challenging swells ensure it is a mecca for the surfing fraternity the world over and the sight of a surfer catching a wave is a regular occurrence.

The three Byrne brothers are all talented surfers and have competed at national and international level over the years. Neil represented Ireland in 1994 in the World Surfing Championships in Brazil. He was ranked 13th in the world. John represented Ireland in the World Championships in the early 80’s and Johnston represented Ireland in Australia in 1982.

For the non-surfer there is an abundance of things to do in the area whether you want to relax and unwind or get the adrenaline pumping. There is the expert Strandhill Surf School next door, and golf nearby to challenge while relaxing seaweed baths and walks along the dunes will unwind and rejuvenate. Not forgetting the kids, there is an excellent playground and Mammy Johnston’s ice cream parlour to satisfy any demands and of course the beach for some family fun. There is a selection of accommodation to suit any budget in the village from the camping and caravan park to cosy B&B’s and 4* self-catering.
History of the Strand Bar
The Strand Bar in the heart of Strandhill, Sligo is a family run business since 1913. Originally opened as a guest house by Georgie Parke, the Byrne family became involved in the 1980’s. The three Byrne brothers have grown up in the business with their parents and the family involvement is evident. It’s rare that one of the Byrne lads wouldn’t be seen in The Strand at any stage during the day.
The Strand, Strandhill 1982 The Byrne family have strong links with Strandhill for many years and through two generations at The Strand Bar and Restaurants with Dad Patsy and Mum Dorothy taking over the business in 1982. Patsy’s family previously ran Strandhills’ Baymount Hotel and the well-known Silver Slipper Ballroom which can boast bands such as U2 playing there over the years. The sign that greeted many of the Silver Slipper patrons over the years hangs proudly in The Strand as testament to this bygone era ‘Neath these portals tread some of the most beautiful girls in the world.’
The Byrne lads look forward to welcoming many more friends old and new to The Strand for years to come
