The beaches of connemara

Gurteen Beach

There is no denying the beauty of the beaches in Connemara. For such a small area, we have some of the very best. With white sandy beaches and turquoise water, they are up there with the very best. It’s no wonder that when the temperature rises in the summer months, the beaches get packed to full capacity! Parking cars and even driving close to the beaches during these peak times can be an art!

Beaches are almost passed down through generations, as the ones your parents went to are usually the ones you stay going to, and it’s almost sacrilegious to swap! Whatever beach you decide, you won’t be stuck for lack of options in Connemara.
