Dog friendly hotel by the Sligo seaside

‘It’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with’

Pet Friendly Rooms

We want to make you and your four-legged friend as comfortable as possible during your stay with us here in Enniscrone. That is why we are delighted to offer dog-friendly rooms to those travelling with their best friend in tow.  We have eight dog-friendly rooms as well as self-catering apartments with patios located on the ground floor.  If available, we will allocate you a room with doors opening straight outside for your convenience, otherwise you will be given a room as close as possible to the main door so those necessary night-time treks outside aren’t too troublesome for you both. You need to book your pet room over the phone with us directly. Any online bookings will not be guaranteed a pet room.

Pets are permitted in the lobby area only with two pet tables and two drinks tables available for you to dine and have a cocktail with your dog beside you. There is limited availability for non-residents to book a pet table in the lobby.  Booking is essential to avoid disappointment. Call to book on +353 96 26700. When staying in one of our rooms or apartments, you will need to bring your dog bed, water bowls, food bowls and leads. There is a maximum of two dogs per room or apartment.

We want to make you and your four-legged friends as comfortable as possible during your stay with us here in Enniscrone and we are proud to be one of the most welcoming, dog-friendly hotels in Ireland.

Here at the Ocean Sands Hotel, we know that dog lovers don’t need to be given a list of reasons to bring their furry friend along on holiday. We also know that it is more than just a bit of hassle to be forced to leave your beloved dog at home at holiday time. When your dog is like a member of your family, being forced to leave them behind can be downright heart-breaking. The worry is constant. Are they being looked after properly? Do they miss you? Above all else, can you even have a proper family holiday when one member is missing?

A Seaside Haven for Animal Lovers

We are delighted to let you know that these are questions you will no longer need to ask yourself when you choose to stay at The Ocean Sands Hotel in Enniscrone.  What’s more, we want you to know that dogs are not merely tolerated here in our family-run seaside hotel. They are also welcomed as valued guests. We are proud to be one of Ireland’s most pet friendly hotels so if you are looking for dog hotels in the West of Ireland, rest assured that you have come to the right place. Having both you and your dogs to stay is our privilege and we wish you all a wonderful break together in our welcoming, family run hotel by the sea.

A Beach Where Doggie Dreams Are Made

We are proud to be positioned right on the beautiful Enniscrone Beach which offers spectacular views of the Atlantic out across the picture-perfect Killala Bay. With 5km of coastline just waiting to be explored, your best friend is in for a real treat.  What could be better than having such a dog walking paradise on your doorstep? We know that they will delight in digging in the sand, making some new canine buddies and perhaps even enjoying a dip in the water themselves. Enniscrone Beach is a jewel in the crown of the Wild Atlantic Way and we invite you both to come and see all it has to offer first hand.

Wild Atlantic Walkies

The Enniscrone Coastal Loop Walk is beautiful walking trail located along the coast.  This 1.78 km walk takes you along the stunning shoreline, offering panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, the picturesque dunes, and the historic Killala Bay. The terrain is mostly flat and easy to navigate, making it an ideal walk for families with children and anyone looking for a gentle stroll. Dogs permitted under supervision. Visit to find out more.
