  • Located just a few miles to the north of the fishing village of Clogherhead is a relatively remote expanse of sand known as Port beach. The beach here stretches for over a mile, although it feels even bigger with panoramic views to the Mourne mountains and backed by mature sand dunes and open countryside.

    Clean water and a rural setting make Port beach a haven for a wide range of flora and fauna such as the rare Marsh Orchid.

    As a winner of the Blue Flag award you can also relax in the knowledge that this is a safe, family beach with lifeguards patrolling during the summer and plenty of facilities close at hand.
