The mighty arms and lofty shoulders of proud Croughan protect and embrace this nestling bay. Here is where the Atlantic untamed first finds a more tender haven in the lee of the land. The ocean accepts its gentling, it meets and it kisses this perfect...More

It’s a beautiful place to visit! Stunning views and beautiful walks. We were delighted with the ocean and the mountains around us, but also with all the sheep just hanging around all over the place.
