An Trá – Inis Oírr Beach

We are truly fortunate that Inis Oírr beach is one of the best beaches in Ireland.

Inis Oírr beach is very safe for swimming. The water is crystal clear and the views are stunning.

Inis Oírr beach is one of only 5 beaches in Ireland to achieve both the Blue Flag and Green Coast awards. The Blue Flag is an international environmental award made to beaches and marinas throughout the world that demonstrate good environmental standards and have good sanitary and safety facilities. The Green Coast Award recognises beaches for their clean environment, excellent water quality and natural beauty.

With O’Brien’s castle as a backdrop, and views across Galway Bay to the Burren and Connemara, the beach is the ideal place to relax after your cycle. The clear water will entice you in for a refreshing dip. Even the sand is perfect. Fine enough to build sandcastles, but not so fine that would blow into your snacks 😊. Conveniently, the beach is only a hundred yards from the pier. So you can squeeze every minute out of your visit!
