Nice crescent beach and popular holiday spot for both family surfers and golfers. Like so much of the west coast of Ireland blasted by Atlantic waves so a great place to learn surfing from the local schools

One of my favorite beaches. Last night on a beautiful evening I went for a swim. Sea was not too cold and had waves. Loads of surfers. Very refreshing swim !! Well worth doing.

A lovely clean beach and perfect for a good walk. We were shocked that Clare County Council charge people for parking by the beach! I thought Ireland wanted to encourage people to exercise!
