Activities

Some of Ireland’s most beautiful beaches are located around the rugged coastline of Connemara, with many and varied options for exploring, beachcombing, swimming, walking and more.

In this part of the world, you will never find yourself too far away from the great Atlantic Ocean and a beach visit should certainly be a part of your Connemara experience.

Trá an Dóilín in An Cheathrú Rua (Carraroe) is an outstanding beach.  It is known for its white coral and blue waters and is a great place for swimming and snorkelling.

Trá an Dóilín is a Blue Flag beach with a lifeguard on duty in the summer months.  This beach is situated approximately 6km  from Costelloe Lodge.
