Love swimming in this sheltered little bay. It does'nt get deep too quick but is deep enough to swim. My favourite for a quick swim.

It is like the land that time forgot, absolutley breathtaking. It is so beautiful and unspoiled. Just wish the Atlantic could be a little bit warmer though.

Miles and miles of soft white sand...great to get a run in and smell the fresh salt air. Ross Beach is approx. 3 miles from Killala, you could walk there if your really looking for a work out !!

Check out Ross Beach for a stroll on a good day. The beach has parking for 20 or so cars in a well maintained car park. Beach lifeguards monitor the beach if you want a swim. Chill out and relax and watch the beautiful Mayo scenery
