We stopped and spent a few minutes at this little beach. It is pretty enough with its silvery sand and breathtaking surroundings. There were several people swimming even though it wasn’t hot out. Worth a few minutes if you are passing by.

Rode to the beach from town on the high road and stopped for a while, very pretty. Would be nice during a hot day.

This is a gorgeous beach, with lovely views over towards Connemara. There are toilets marked on the map, however these were locked when I was there. Luckily there are cafes at the visitor centre at Dun Aonghasa just a few minutes away by bike!

We saw seals basking on this attractive beach. The whole area is most attractive with its narrow roads, horses and some attractive stone buildings including some white painted shops.

Very nice "blue flag" beach. Ireland's highest standard. Located at a cross roads where there are many historical sites to see. It was our starting point for a couple good hikes to the big fort and the worm hole.

GUYS. Do not miss this. If you are visiting Dun Aengus, just walk across the road you entered through the "village" of Kilmurvey, and you will see the blue flag down to the right indicating this beach is safe for swimming. Take some time to...More

A perfect beach to spend the evening and relax. The water is so clean and you can see different colours in the water due to the depth.. a truly breathtaking view.
