Steeped in maritime history, this fishing port, with quaint thatched cottages, a children’s playground and playful seals in the harbour, is a hive of activity. Forlorn Point has some of the most ancient rock in Europe. A memorial garden dedicated to those lost at sea lies beside Ballyteigue Burrow’s 9km of sand dunes abundant with flora and fauna. Just offshore, the unspoiled Saltee Islands are a haven for sea-birds, surrounded by abundant marine life.
An ideal stop-off point along the Eurovelo route.
Ballyteige Burrow. A 4.5km looped walk along one of the finest sand dune systems in the country and back along the Burrow shore. Full details can be found on our Walking Trail Website here.
