Coming in from the West, Mullaghmore, Co Sligo
Donegal Bay is enclosed to the north by Slieve League in Donegal and to the south by Downpatrick Head on the north coast of Mayo. It has some of the most constant winds in western Europe and, as a result, it has very high waves, which are famous around the world among surfers. Mullaghmore, jutting out into the bay as it does, affords great views of both the Mayo and Donegal coastlines. From that vantage point it sometimes appears that weather 'coming in from the west' is coming straight for you.
