Historic beach with several transatlantic landings and the most lovely view of Howth, Portrane and Ireland’s Eye. The beach is wide and long with lovely clean golden sand. A pleasure to walk and relax to the sound of the sea all year round.

Stayed with my husband, service is excellent and staff friendly and helpful. My only issue was the hairdryer was very poor and didn’t dry my hair and the pillows were a very hard. Great breakfast and the service and staff were excellent

It was like being a child again running and jumping through the sand dunes playing hide and seek with my grand children and looking for pretty shells along the shore line of a really wonderful long clean beach
