0.0

If you are looking for a unique and scenic beach to visit in Galway, you might want to check out Trá an Dóilin, also known as Coral Strand. This beach is located near An Cheathrú Rua (Carraroe) village in the Connemara Gaeltacht, where Irish is still spoken by many locals.

Trá an Dóilin is a blue flag beach, which means it meets high standards of water quality, safety and environmental management. The beach is famous for its coral-like sand, which is actually made of a type of algae called maerl. The sand is very fine and crunchy, and has a pinkish hue. The water is crystal clear and ideal for swimming, snorkeling and paddleboarding. You can also enjoy the views of the nearby islands and the rugged coastline.

Trá an Dóilin has some facilities for visitors, such as public toilets, a lifeguard hut and a car park. There are also some picnic benches where you can relax and enjoy a snack. The beach is wheelchair accessible, but you might need some assistance to navigate the uneven sand. If you are hungry or thirsty, you can visit Bia Blasta Cafe in Carraroe, which serves delicious food and coffee.

Trá an Dóilin is a great place to experience the natural beauty and culture of Connemara. It is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike, especially in the summer months. If you are planning to visit Trá an Dóilin, make sure to bring some sunscreen, a towel and some water shoes, as the sand can be sharp on your feet. You will not regret spending a day at this stunning beach.
