Picture: Black Rock and the tombolo
 
Long walk from car along beach
by Fergalh  25 Jun 2023
Park at 637 507 starA on Streedagh Beach. Walk north east along beach until you reach the tombolo at 657 527 starB. Walk along centre of the tombolo where it is not as slippy. A small minor scramble leads to the high point with good views along the beach and coastline. Around 3.2 km from the car to Black Rock's high point, as always check the tide as the tombolo can be quite narrow or non existent ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2079/comment/23996/
