  • Nice little place directly on the Atlantic. A bit of tourist hustle and bustle surrounded by rich Irish greenery. There's a bit of a lot going on but not so much that it would bother. Well worth a little trip.

  • It is here that i recommend it as a beautiful beach. It depends on the location, but the whole area around Ireland is very beautiful.
