The weather wasn’t bright, but we walked to the far end of the beach and up onto the grassy headlands to the open Atlantic. It was wonderful! Beautiful beach and environs.

Dogs bay is a little gem 💎 absolutely stunning does not even come close to the appearance of this beach. The sand is almost white and the sea is crystal clear. A visit to this stunning beach is a must when visiting Connemara.

The pleasant sounds and sights of surf meeting turf await those venturing to this cozy pocket of peace outside Roundstone. It had been 18 years since our last ramble and happily we can report nothing has changed. "Progress" has not imposed. All natural, all the...More

This is a beautiful beach and offers a good variety of views depending on where you are walking. You can walk up the hills and get a great view of the bay! A must do!

One of the most beautiful beaches we have seen. Powdery sand and crystal clear blue water. It’s easy to park and just a short stroll down from the car park gets you onto the beach. It’s so quiet the kids just could run free. We...More

Caught up with this spot at the end of a long day of road tripping. Sun was heading for the horizon at the mouth of the bay. It was a delight. Wide long sandy beach protected by a spit of land. Sheltered from big waves...More

It takes a bit to get there and you definitely need someone who knows the area to find the correct narrow road to get there. There is not much parking. It is an impressive, large, fine grain sandy beach with different colored greens and blues...More
