Renowned for its sandy beaches, history, heritage and unspoilt scenery, it is one of Ireland’s most beautiful coastal destinations. The fantastic beaches scattered along the coastline are big attractions for families and they also cater for watersports enthusiasts with many water-based sports on offer.
