AN TRÁ MÓR

0.0

If you are looking for a relaxing and scenic beach getaway in Ireland, you might want to consider visiting An Trá Mór (meaning “the big beach”) in Inverin, a rural Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) area in County Galway. 

An Trá Mór is a long, wide and sheltered sandy beach that offers tranquility and gently sloping sands into the clear water, making it ideal for swimming and bathing. The beach also boasts stunning views over the ocean to the Burren in County Clare, a unique landscape of limestone hills and caves.

Due to the sheltered nature of the beach, when the tide is fully out, the beach gets cut off from the ocean by a barrier of rock and seaweed, leaving behind only a small pool area of water on the beach. This is perfect for families with kids as it provides an opportunity to search for crabs and fish in the shallow pools with the little ones. However, avid swimmers will have to wait until the tide comes back in before a bigger water area is built up again.

An Trá Mór is not only a beautiful beach, but also an award-winning one. The beach holds a Blue Flag Award, which is an international recognition of high standards in water quality, environmental management, safety and services.

The beach has some facilities on-site to include; a lifeguard service in the summer season, toilets, car parking, picnic benches and wheelchair access. The beach is easily accessible by car from Galway city.

An Trá Mór is a perfect place to enjoy the natural beauty and culture of Galway. Whether you want to swim, sunbathe, picnic, walk or just relax, you will find something to suit your mood and taste at this hidden gem.
