Kilmore Quay

 

  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.

Activities
